April Wrap-Up

Hi everyone! It’s my first reading wrap-up of the year!

I haven’t been able to keep a good reading pace in a while – either due to work, mental space, or a combination of the two – so I’m proud of myself for finishing as much I did last month.

SYNOPSIS

Goodreads

A high-born Nigerian goddess, who has been beaten down and unappreciated by her gregarious lover, longs to be truly seen.

A young businesswoman attempts a great leap in her company, and an even greater one in her love life.

A powerful Ghanaian spokeswoman is forced to decide whether she should uphold her family’s politics or be true to her heart.

In her debut collection, internationally acclaimed writer Bolu Babalola retells the most beautiful love stories from history and mythology with incredible new detail and vivacity. Focusing on the magical folktales of West Africa, Babalola also reimagines Greek myths, ancient legends from the Middle East, and stories from long-erased places.
