Last year I read 143 books &decided that was too many. & I know people here read extremely more, slightly more, less, there‘s no “right” number, but I feel like I don‘t savor or ruminate on anything anymore -& I like to do that-
so I said I have to calm down 😂 anyway,I read 16 books this month not including the one I DNF‘d 🤣 so than resolution obviously did not stick. anyway, the tagged book is my favorite of the month

What a wonderful surprise! I never expected 3 books so perfect for me! Thank you so much Soubhi @Soubhiville . I‘m still planning to read either The Game of Silence or The Round House by Louise Erdrich even if it‘s in February, then The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. #AuthorAMonth

Soubhiville You‘re welcome! I hope you‘ll enjoy them. I love Evelyn Hugo! 2w

I spent last weekend in NYC! I had a fabulous time visiting The Strand and Book Culture, where I picked up these lovely books! I also visited the NYPL on 5th Ave., and attended the Virginia Woolf exhibit and the Treasures exhibit! Lovely literary trip!

5/5 stars! I thought My Sister, the Serial Killer was a solid thriller, had me laughing and screaming for the main character, siblings really be like this😂

Loved it.
A quick read, the story of two sisters 👯‍♀️ the older one always cleaning up the younger one‘s messes.

Had me hooked from page 1 “Ayoola summons me with these words- Korede, I killed him. -I had hoped I would never hear those words again.”

At first I sat with how the world is frightfully efficient in trying to suffocate us out of our queerness & beating us into submission. But then it was the tone of the writing that finally got me at the end, that quiet tired monotone you tell your stories in because life has really made wisdom & exhaustion out of you.Life often takes us the long way round. Perhaps it doesn‘t matter, long or short, we eventually find our way to where we need to be.
