kk i love measurin tyme. i know u that review will neva come
I havent finished Measuring Time Dani, just reading it now. I read another Habila book first called "Waiting for an Angel"
Meanwhile, I hear Sefi Atta has published her newest. I want to read it, and also Jude Dibia is working away at his next! Cant wait! I seriously miss you guys and the book club!
Where's the gang? Bluestocking, I sabi say waka waka no gree you but abeg make we try dey post inside this thread small small. Real life has soooo taken over, but I miss our reviews and general banter!
Guys, the longer this thread grows, the more awkward to read it becomes. Do start opening threads for specific books, to give them proper attention and attract other potential minds. Thanks.
If we no wan open new threads nko? na by force?
@Kikis no vex jare, you know how it's been. I went to Farafina Publishers event on saturday, I couldn't beleive the number of books out now. There is so much catching up to do. I'm currently reading 'Zahrah the Windseeker, by Nnedi Okoroafor-Mbachu, it's touted as Nigeria's first sci-fi novel. I go try post review later.
BTW, Chimamanda Adichie was at the event and me I didnt hesitate to ask her for my own share (just 10%) of the huge grant she just got, but upon all my rapping the woman no just budge. Some people can be stingy sha :-D
but really it might be better to do as Mr Shola said, i just feel like the reviews are all jumbled together somehow, it might be more interesting if there are different threads for different books.
Yeah, oloje, sounds like a plan. The club's been dead for a while now. Maybe the mods can help with a Sticky folder for Book Reviews somehwere in here, where we can open threads per book for reviews. I lost my energy for a while, but I've read a few good ones over the last year or so..I'm game
I'll look through to see what I can do about breaking the breakables and finding a place for the book reviews
Thanks....I'll be reviewing Dark Visions first:D
finally, I just read half a yellow sun........ and am speechless
I couldn't put it down. Love it.
i almost read it twice
