Effia and Esi: two sisters with two very different destinies. One sold into slavery; one a slave trader’a wife. The consequences of their fate reverberate through the generations that follow: from the Gold Coast of Africa to the plantations of Mississippi; from the Missionary schools of Ghana to the dive Bars of Harlem. Spanning continents and generations, Yaa Gyasi has written a miraculous novel – an intense heartbreaking story of one family and, through their lives, the story of Africa itself.
A miraculous novel indeed!
I absolutely enjoyed this book and it stoked the fire in me to read more historical fiction and non-fiction which I’ve always loved!
The plot of this book easily flowed and told heart breaking stories of the characters. I like to think of the entire book as a collection of short stories which although are independent are intertwined by family.
I also loved the fact that each of the chapters were written in third person narrative but centering on each character. It was easy to understand and written according to the time it was set it.
The author did a phenomenal job with research on the Ghanaian history and explored deep themes in this work cutting across racism, discrimination, the trans Atlantic slave trade and domestic slave trade.
The prints in the paperback I bought are tiny and admittedly, some patience is required to read and finish this book. It’s not one of those books you can just start and drop intending to pick up in a couple of weeks. I advice that you read it all at once.
To see my verdict on this book, watch my full book review on the book my clicking on the link below:
It’s easy to ignore milestones because we’re focusing on the “next best thing”, but I’m super thankful for this one because when I started, I knew it was not the most popular niche on YouTube discussing books or even mainly African and Nigerian literature (there’s only a handful of Nigerian booktubers).
I’m proud of myself that I stuck to a niche (also on advice of a trusted one) that I’m super passionate about and I’ve seen how my passion has positively rubbed off on people. I’ve connected with book lovers all over the world and most importantly, Nigerian literature is getting the exposure it deserves!
So if you’re thinking of starting something and you don’t know if people will vibe with it because it’s relatively new to people around you? Why don’t you start first and let that passion drive you. You’d be surprised at how many people will vibe with it because of your passion!
Thank you to my first 500! I’ll forever be thankful!
You made this girl believe she can do anything! ✨ here’s to hundreds and thousands and millions of subscribers! 🥂
P.S I posted semi-dramatic acceptance speech on my YouTube channel.!😭😂
Ahhh….this book was absolutely beautiful! It broke my heart in so many ways.
I loved my reading experience while reading this book (as it was deeply infused with music) and loved how each story was beautiful in its on way.
Although the collection of short stories is fictional, some of the stories felt very real and relatable to me. I like how the stories were independent yet some were linked to each other in an interesting way! This is an interesting one if you’re looking for an African collection of short stories.

I think I have the some of the weirdest reading habits known to humanity. *laughing at myself and crying happily in satisfaction*
I jumped on The Reading Habits Tag on Booktube and tagged myself in it since I was not tagged by anyone. I however made sure I tagged quite a number of my booktube friends so they could answer the questions.
I had a great time filming and answering questions on my reading habits. It’s a lovely way for other booktubers and book lovers to get to know you better. The questions I answered from the tag are:
Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter/ a certain amount of pages?
Do you eat or drink while reading?
Multitasking: Music or TV while reading?
One book at a time or several at once?
Reading at home or everywhere?
Reading out lout or silently in your head?
Do you read ahead or even skip pages?
Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
Do you write in your book?
When do you find yourself reading? Morning, afternoon, evening, whenever you get the chance or all the time?
What is your best setting to read in?
What form do you prefer? Audiobook, E-book or physical book?
Do you have a unique habit when you read?
So if you have ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of all these books I read, then by all means, enjoy the video below:
April and May were good reading months for me (well, if we take the two months together).
I read 3 books in April (because I was ill for half of the month and it was tough mentally and physically) and 7 books in May! So I shared the books I read in the months of April and May (don’t ask why I made it “Maypril” it just sounded really cool in my head 😂). I run down the titles I read and what I thought about them! check out the video below:
Title: On Ajayi Crowther Street by Elnathan John and illustrated by Alaba Onajin
If you are looking for a lighthearted, funny comic-strip book read, then this book is for you!
I loved this book because I literally finished it in one sitting and it made me laugh. It is comedic in nature but filled with deep themes that are so relatable to the Nigerian society. I loved the way the author explored these themes and gave the book a lighthearted read in all.
It is such a great book to learn from!
You’d be surprised at my rating for this book! 😳😝
