Please click on books to read their review.

They are books I really enjoyed, Every Day is for the Thief by Teju Cole is one of my favourite narraitives. The Palm-Wine Drinkard is one of the most visited reviews on my blog. The Spider King's Daughter won the Betty Trask Award in 2013, please click here to read more about the Betty Trask Prize and Award. An Elegy for Easterly won the Guardian First Book Award 2009 and was nominated for the Orwell Prize 2010. These debut novels are quite promising.  Amos Tutuola is late, however, Teju Cole, Chibundu Onuzo and Petina Gappah are really doing very well in the literary scene. I hope to read more of their works.
