I am making some progress on my Winter Reading List my Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie reads. (See my 2019 A Focus on Authors Reading Challenge).
These are all pretty long books, and I’ve been taking a bit more time with them.
Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – audiobook = ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling – audiobook = ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
*I will have a full review of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie books near the end of February.*
I’ve really been enjoying reading Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie this month and highly recommend reading her! What are y’all reading now? Please post your WWW links below in the comments if I haven’t already visited them.
I saw an interview with the author of Bad Blood and I was really intrigued by it. I hope you enjoy 💖
I’ve heard soooo much about Bad Blood on all the book podcasts, that I just had to read it. My library hold just came in, so I should be starting that as soon as I get through the beasts I’m working on now. 🙂
I really loved reading The Odyssey. Hope you enjoy it too!
Yeah…I’m looking forward to it. This is why I enjoy my classics book club. It forces me to read these books that I have wanted to read for a long time. I’m also glad that they picked the new translation. It should be good!
I really enjoyed Americanah. I read some of her others but ages ago-probably need to re-read those too!!
I’m currently enjoying Americanah a lot. I definitely am liking it more than Purple Hibiscus. I find her descriptions of the contrast between life in Nigeria and life in the US fascinating.
Yes, that was one of the things I really enjoyed about it too – the contrasts and the adjustment to both.
Only HP is familiar from this post.
Here is mine WWW post
I am curious about Say Nothing. Enjoy your books, and thanks for visiting my blog.
I keep seeing Say Nothing come up on other blogs I follow. How is it so far? Here’s mine:https://readwithme2018.com/2019/02/20/www-wednesday-february-20th-2019/
I went into Say Nothing thinking it was a straight up true crime, but it has mostly been historical information about the fighting in Northern Ireland so far. Not what I thought I would be reading but I am learning a lot. It will be interesting to see how this background information leads up to the true crime portion of the story.
It sounds interesting. I can’t wait to read your review!!
A Feminist Manifesto is my next to read book by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I like her stile and I liked her TED talks as well. It seems your are going well through the challenge.
Her essays have been fantastic! As soon as I finish Americanah, I will have to have a listen to her TED talks.
Oh, I don’t know any of these books, except for Harry Potter of course, but I hope you are enjoying them! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
This is a great list! I really need to read Bad Blood. I heard it’s phenomenal.
Say Nothing sounds really interesting – I’ve not heard of it before but I’ve made a note of it now. I hope you’re enjoying Americanah, it’s on my list to read this year and I hope to get to it sooner rather than later. Happy reading for the week ahead 🙂

The Trial of Lizzie Borden looks good! Ooo The Odyssey I admire your ambition!!!!
Yeah….The Odyssey is for a book club, and it’ll be amazing if I finish it in time. It is definitely a beast!
I look forward to reading your thoughts on Bad Blood. I have thought about adding that one to my TBR.
Oh, was the HP audiobook the one read by Stephen Fry?
Unfortunately no. It was narrated by Jim Dale. I listen to whatever my library’s Libby app provides me. It was still good though.
I just went to GoodReads to add Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s book to my TBR, only to discover it is already on there. XD I might have to read that Lizzie Borden book, too.
In addition to Say Nothing I need to read The Trial of Lizzie Borden! I’ve always been fascinated by the whole situation. I cannot wait to hear your thoughts! Thanks for visiting my WWW. Have a great week.
I’ll be looking forward to your review of Adichie’s books. 🙂
I will probably be giving a high-praise review. I have immensely enjoyed Adichie’s style of writing.
She is a really great writer.
Yes, Chamber of Secrets! That’s where I need to pick up for my reread of the Illustrated editions..😍
I do like the look of The Trial of Lizzie Borden. I hope you enjoy it.
