Happy Friday! It’s time for another Friday Reads. Each week I share my Friday read and a review of the previous week’s pick.
There’s no video this week due to crazy work schedules and extra meetings, obligations, etc. BUT I am going to RAVE MY BRAIN OUT about Chigozie Obioma’s The Fishermen.
Holy moly this book is amazing. Obioma has such a powerful and beautiful voice, which results in a story that is captivating and just so rich. The brothers felt so real and I felt transported to Nigeria in the 1990s, watching the events play out Ebenezer Scrooge style. The story is heartbreaking, the language is heart melting, and the book is just all around phenomenal. If you haven’t read The Fishermen, go now!
I’m in the middle of two books right now, The Tommyknockers by Stephen King and Rich and Pretty by Rumaan Alam and I love both of them! I’ll probably talk about Rich and Pretty next week but hold out on The Tommyknockers since it’s almost 700 pages…I’ll finish it eventually!
Until next time, happy reading!
