Not in this day and age. Keeping people in cages for being different or poor is something that should never happen. Whether it was 700 years ago, 70 years ago or at this very moment, the people who commit such atrocities need to be exposed for the monsters they are.

A truly beautiful book. I cried on the train as I reached the end. I loved every bit of it and I can‘t wait to try more from this writer.

Bookwormjillk I forced myself to finish this at home and not on the train for that very reason! 7mo
The_Reading_Hedgehog Update: there‘s already a movie based on this book and you can bet your ass that I‘m going to cry at that too. 7mo

This book took me a bit to read and digest. Salman Rushdie has turned into one of my favorite writers and his book did not disappoint. I enjoyed the many elements of magical realism and how they made the story. I also found the plot compelling and thought that the messages got across.

I enjoyed this book. It wasn‘t amazing but the story was captivating and made me think about my life in a way I haven‘t before. Also, I thought the cover is really cool - the beads you can see on the front are overlaid on a picture of the author so you can see bits of her in this fairytale she has adapted as a metaphor for her life.

I raced through this book. I couldn‘t put it down for a minute. Also, how did they not die in all those accidents?

Oryx I couldn't put this one down either! 10mo

I was not prepared for this book. It captivated me and surprised me at so many instances. This is one of the best books I‘ve read in a while and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Probably the last book I‘ll read this year unless I can manage to cram 500 words into tomorrow. So here‘s to 2018-the year I read books everyone else says I need to read.

A Little Princess (Collins Classics) | Frances Hodgson Burnett

This was one of my favorite books growing up and rereading it has shown me why. A beautiful story that can admittedly be a bit preachy but lands nevertheless. Frances Hodgson Burnett has this amazing ability to create characters that feel both real and unreachable at the same time and this is always what endears them to me.

Half of a Yellow Sun | Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

This book took me so long to finish because I needed time to comprehend everything I was reading. It was beautifully written and it took me back to my high school days - to my history classes where discussed wars and African politics with a clarity that surprises me to remember. This book was mentioned then but it took me forever to begin reading Chimanda Adichie. As a fellow West-African, these books bring me a joy I only dreamed as a child.
