#FridayReads August 23rd

What Do Women Want?: Adventures in the Science of Female Desire - Daniel Bergner The Silver Linings Playbook - Matthew Quick Americanah - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Hello invisible readers, 


So welcome to another edition of #FridayReads! I didn't publish any reviews or special content this week but I read quite a bit (yaaaay!) 


I bought and finished What do Women Want?: Adventures in the Science of Female Desire by Daniel Bergner. You can expect a book review soon. I actually enjoyed it despite some of the bad reviews out there. 


I also finished Silver Linings Playbook, the movie. You can expect yet another book review. 


Finally, I started Americanah by Chimamanda Adichie, which is supposed to explore the identification issues faced by Africans in the Diaspora, like myself. I had previously read Half of a Yellow Sun -- an excellent, moving and compelling novel on the Biafran War


The great thing about this blog is that I can write at my own pace. Therefore, though I really want to put out all these book reviews, it may take me some time to type them out.  But yes, there will be four upcoming reviews and that is very exciting stuff. 


Also, I wanted to mention that some people in real life recommended me some mangas and graphic novels to read. They will be on my TBR list which is ever expanding. 


That's it from me xox, S.
