I had been waiting to read this for a long time. Over the months we’ve been in lockdown, I’ve been buying a lot of books, but instead of reading them, I have been watching a lot of documentaries!
Plus some of the books I have read are as thick as the Bible, and as I’m not the fastest reader, it takes me a while.
Definitely have been drawn to this book for a long time. The title drew me in as did the front cover. It has come up in a few recommendations and book lists I’ve seen across Instagram.
Wasn’t sure what to expect as I wasn’t familiar with the author. I read through it fairly quickly and I have to say it wasn’t my favourite.
I liked that the sisters were very close and would do anything for each other, but I wasn’t a fan of Korede. Although very close to her sister, she seemed a bit obsessed with her and didn’t live her own life! I get that she is the elder sister and wants to look after his family, but it was a bit too much for me.
I’m reading way too much into this now, but books are real life 😂
Similar to previous books I’ve read with Nigerian authors, I love it when they include references of places I’ve visited and when they include references to the local language.
I’ve got mixed reviews on this one, but it was nominated for the Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2019 and was called a ‘literary sensation’ by The Guardian, so what do I know!?!
