My end of year TBR…… All I can do is shake my head. I FAILED MISERABLY! I haven’t even cracked a book open other than my bible or devotional in WEEKS! Sigh.. I tried I really did, but hey sometimes life gets in the way and others things have to take priority 🙂
As you read this, I am on my way to the airport! What better way to catch up on some reading, than to do it poolside, with the sun beaming down on me! Sounds pretty good to me!
So, I am not going to be ambitious and say I plan to finish a book, but I will be realistic and say I would like to get through most of a book : )
The one book that I am going to bring with me is a book I have been trying to read all year but I keep getting sidetracked. If It’s the only book I have with me, I’ll have no choice but to attempt it! It must be read before 2015 is done!
Once again, “Half of a Yellow Sun” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie makes its appearance on my blog. Just in case you forgot the summary… 🙂 here it is one more time:
With effortless grace, celebrated author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie illuminates a seminal moment in modern African history: Biafra’s impassioned struggle to establish an independent republic in southeastern Nigeria during the late 1960s. We experience this tumultuous decade alongside five unforgettable characters: Ugwu, a thirteen-year-old houseboy who works for Odenigbo, a university professor full of revolutionary zeal; Olanna, the professor’s beautiful young mistress who has abandoned her life in Lagos for a dusty town and her lover’s charm; and Richard, a shy young Englishman infatuated with Olanna’s willful twin sister Kainene. Half of a Yellow Sun is a tremendously evocative novel of the promise, hope, and disappointment of the Biafran war
Wish me luck and have a beautiful Wednesday!
