"He was no longer sure, he had in fact never been sure, whether he liked his life because he really did or whether he liked it because he was supposed to."
Americanah - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. pg 21

Hi people, welcome to a special edition of #FridayReads!

Since I do not have much to say, since my last update, I just wanted to share a quote from the book I am currently reading which is Americanah. Growing up, I never really taught about anything relating to African literature, African history or African philosophy in school-- even though, I spent 19 years of my life in the mother continent. FYI, I am 23 yr/o. Furthermore, my parents and my ancestors are East African; therefore, it really feels like I missed out on an integral part of learning about my identity. Anyways, Americanah is a refreshing read because every three pages I find a little gem that I can relate to or that speaks to me. 

On that note, I would just have a few last things to share with you. 

 

If you haven't seen my update on my absence, please check out my blogpost here.

 

I've recently read this article on Nigerian Literature, from the renown Francophone Magazine Jeune Afrique. Si vous parlez le francais, vous pouvez le retrouver ici

K, that is it from me. xox, S.
