Fall For The Book!

Now that I'm back home, I hope I can manage to squeeze a new book every month this fall. My last post got me on an African Lit kick so majority of my book list will be of such. Read along!

I found an African Lit Blog with extensive reviews and awesome posts! For book lovers only!

This selection of short stories won the Caine Prize for African Writing 2012



About Queen Elizabeth and books!


I haven't dabbled in Francophone African Lit much; this novel is by a Djibouti writer
 

Yes, I judge books by its cover... and I bet this is a good judgment
 

Lahiri's writing is as captivating as Adichie's; #readTheNamesaketoo


What an intriguing title! Can't wait to read!

Thanks so much for a link to my blog :) I'm so glad you like it. And can I just say I love your list. I've been wanting to read 'The United States of Africa' and 'Akata Witch' for a while now. And I'm intrigued by 'Interpreter of Maladies'.
