There are a couple of new releases on my radar. If I wasn’t such a broke bitch, I would have them all pre-ordered. Alas, I find myself fawning over their covers.
On the off-chance that you aren’t a broke bitch like me, you might want to have these books on your shelf too so… here I am with my small-but-mighty listy list.
Of This Our Country by Nigerian Writers
This is the Avengers End Game of Nigerian Anthologies. It has essays from all my favorite authors: Chimamanda Adichie, Lola Shoneyin, Bolu Babalola, Abubakar Adam Ibrahim, ElNathan John.
I have to get this book.
An Unusual Grief by Yewande Omotoso
Nearly All The Men In Lagos Are Mad by Damilare Kuku
Nearly All The Men got a lot of fanfare on twitter a couple of weeks ago. It’s Damilare Kuku’s literary review and promises to leave us wowed.
To be honest, I’m kind tired of reading stories set in Lagos. I feel like there are so many unexplored cities in Nigeria to pick from. But this promises to be an interesting read so I will give it a try.
People Live Here by TJ Benson.
TJ Benson has a second book coming out this year.
I still havent read The Madhouse because I havent been able to get my hand on a copy.
