Meet Wilson. He has been my reading companion for five years now. Here he is using one of my absolute favorite books Americanah. There is something about the way Chimamanda writes that makes me fall in love with all of her books. she has a certain way of describing the surroundings that make it feel like you are right there.

Got a little lost in this book. ROMANTIC - can‘t decide if it was refreshingly or predictably so.

Mixed on this one and I‘m not sure why. Adichie is a talented writer, the narrator was great, and I feel like I learned so much, but there were a few times where I just didn‘t care anymore, especially toward the end.

llawela Agree. Loved it, but maybe needed a heavier handed editor? 3w

Americanah is a meaty, satisfying novel about a Nigerian woman's transition to the US and then back again to Nigeria. It will challenge your views about race as it highlights the experience of immigrants. It is extremely well-written; you will feel like you had been starving for substantive literature. The vocabulary is rich and the insights are piercing. The end read more like a memoir than a novel; the writing less demanding. A favorite!

I tried so hard to narrow it down to a top 10 to mark halfway through 2019 and I just couldn‘t! So this was a top 13 but became a top 14 when I realised I just couldn‘t bring myself to cut Thomas Hardy out.

I‘ve read a lot of great things this year - lil bit behind on my goodreads challenge. I didn‘t manage to make it last year so I really really really want to make it ground and crack the challenge this year. I‘m very competitive with myself!

It‘s June wrap up time! Slightly fewer than some other months and im getting behind on my goodreads challenge (the horror 😨) but I‘ve been sick and on holiday so eh.

Americanah was definitely my absolute standout this month, probably one of the best novels I‘ve ever read. If anything else beats it out for best book of the year that‘ll be a good book indeed!

How did I wait this long to read this?? Absolutely one of the best novels I‘ve read this year, probably ever. Ifemelu is incredible, the way she thinks, changes, acts in ways I feel I understand so well even tho she‘s in circumstances I‘ve never been in. The supporting characters and bit parts who were barely in it were all so well observed and meaningful. How does CNA describe places and societies so well with such small details? Breathtaking

Next up! This has been on my shelf about five years but I‘m trying to read through my backlist so I can give more books away before I move out of my parents house. Need to clear so much out, I don‘t like being surrounded by stacks and stacks of unread books. I‘ve been meaning to read it so much but the length put me off as thick physical books can make my wrists hurt badly (carpal tunnel 😰) but I‘ll see how I go!

Amiable This is such a great book! 2mo
Theaelizabet Loved this book! 2mo
Caterina Loved this book! It was my first #blameitonlitsy purchase and I immediately read it, back in 2016. It kicked off my intentional diverse reading, my reading of current lit that isn't "classic" yet, and was the first book I read with a chapter about black hair, which I have now encountered in so many books. Honestly between this book and reading Evicted for class the same fall, it was the beginning of a new era in my life. Hope you enjoy it! ? 2mo

Wow! So many surprises in 1 little book. I didn‘t even notice them all the 1st time I read through! I ❤️ your choice of fabric for the envelope. If I was a book I‘d want to be in there. I enjoy colouring during ad breaks on tv & I find mandalas very meditative. Thanks muchly. It arrived on time too not like my poor partner‘s parcel. @TheReadingMermaid were you able to let her know it will be late? Thanks for organising & your patience. Sorry.

TheReadingMermaid Yes I did. Thank you darling 2mo
wanderinglynn I‘m so glad you like it. I did it a slight bit differently than @TheReadingMermaid has suggested only because the book I ordered for it was damaged. I hated to throw it away, so I improvised, which is why I glued things on the pages and why the last third of the book is what it is (that‘s where most of the damage had been). 😉 (edited) 2mo

M19 - This has been on my list for a long time and I finally read it -and definitely lives up to all of the hype! Adichie's bold and poignant commentary on blackness in the United States is made even more powerful when accompanied by her incredible prose and story-telling. Her subtle, spot-on characterizations throughout this novel and HALF OF A YELLOW SUN and her descriptions of the nuances in every relationship is some of the best I've read. 👏

I finished the audio of this book and found it interesting. I went in not knowing anything about the book (I do this often with audio) so did some research upon completion. I‘m confused, the author wrote the book with a humorous intent. I never realized that and come to think of it, didn‘t laugh at any point in the story. Now I think I should start my Overdrive audio back to the beginning.

Wow, this is an epic story! The book is quite long, and it takes you on a sweeping journey that you don‘t want to end. It‘s beautiful! The characters are amazing, the book is SO well-written, it‘s insightful, and it‘s at heart a totally enticing romance. But there is so much more to it! This is a beautiful immigrant story, and I learned a lot from it. I would highly recommend it!

If you consider yourself an ally, you most definitely should read books from the minority and/or immigrant perspective, such as this, Homegoing and What is the What. This book tells it like it is, with no sugarcoating.

I really wanted to like this, but even from a few pages in there felt like something was missing. It explores and discusses some really important ideas about race, but it felt like the characters and the plot were all just there to display another observation about race which left the story feeling a bit limp and the characters uninteresting.

Kate.Braithwaite I‘d agree. I loved the two books set in Nigeria but didn‘t connect with the characters here half so well. 5mo

Well, I shot myself in the foot. A while back I decided to try to read only one book at a time, and it works for me. Then this month happened. First there's my challenge to myself to read the Beatles Anthology. Then I started reading Puritan because it's easy to set aside, and I wanted to start reading the Twain book for my #LentRead. Then my Overdrive hold for the tagged book came in today. I don't think I've read 4 at once since college. Yikes!

SharonAlger What‘s the app you‘re using? I‘m interested in getting something like that. 6mo
SleepyDragon @SharonAlger This one is called Reading Planner. It's very simplistic and doesn't give any stats. It's one of three that I use, not including Goodreads. I like it mainly because I can enter a read by date and it will tell me how many pages I have to read each day to finish on time. 6mo

SharonAlger @NeesyBeth it looks like it‘s not available for Apple, but I found a reading tracker I‘m happy with called ‘Book Breeze‘. It doesn‘t have the option of setting a read-by goal date, but it does time your reading sessions and lets you track the page you‘re up to. I‘ve found it useful. Thanks so much for the idea! 6mo
SleepyDragon @SharonAlger The other two apps I use do that as well. I use ReadTracker which also tracks your reading time and estimates how long it take you to finish the book at your current pace. I also use Bookly for the fun graphic and reading speed stats, but refuse to pay for the pro version. So I delete the books from it after I read it, whereas I keep an archive with the other two apps. I think I make tracking more complicated than it needs to be. Lol 6mo

I have never had a favourite author till now, but I guess I found my favorite author. Chimamanda has an amazing way to get to my heart with magical words. I could resonate with almost every instance she mentioned as an immigrant in the US, myself.India and Nigeria are so similar in many aspects and she just knew what to say. When the book was over, I felt a pang of sadness because I didnt want to say bye to obinze and ifem just yet.

3/5⭐ I'm so torn. Half the book lost focus. The characters felt less like fully realized people than vehicles for the book's themes. At the end the complexity of the first 3/4 of the book fell off completely in favor of a constant "will they/won't they" romance I wasn't invested in. Read it for an eye-opening look at race across multiple continents, but not really for any interesting characters or plot. #blackathon #contemporaryathon #projectSAMS
