Tuesday Top Five: Books of the year. 


I’m really not good with reviews so pardon me if It’s not enlightening enough. 
1. The Origin by Dan Brown. 

Where did we come from? Where are we going? I’ve read all his books and I’m familiar with the amount of research he puts into writing. I was so eager to know the answer to the questions. He had me on edge as I flipped the pages. My heart was literally pounding in my chest out of suspense. And then came the big reveal. If you want to know where you came from and where you are going, you should pick a copy of this book. 
2. Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adechie. 

When I started this book, I was really bored by the main character Ifemelu. But as I picked up pace, I became glued to the pages. Issues like colorism, feminism, adaptation, societal pressure to fit in and all were addressed. It’s a book worth reading. You should read this with a dictionary by your side though.  
3. To kill a mockingbird by Harper Lee. 

This is a five year old view on the happenigs around her. It’s exciting, humorous, tells you a lot about the southern life. You’d get to love Scout Finch, through whose eyes you’d be seeing it all. 

4. The Smart Money Woman by Arese Ugwu.

Are you a spend thrift? Do you spend more than you earn? Do you spend in advance? Do you want to know how to be responsible financially? Are you tired of being broke all the time? Then you should pick up this book.

5 For Sizakele by Yvonne Fly Onakeme Etaghene

This book was written by a Nigerian Queer for queers. It’s a story of love, broken hearts, betrayal and survival. It opened my eyes to the fact that homosexuals don’t have it easy in their relationships either. There is a lot to learn if you can read in between the lines. 
This wasn’t written in any particular order. If you’ve read the books on the list, good for you. If you haven’t, you should. *winks*
