I’m taking a break from blogging for two weeks. I have a lot going on, most especially a huge event to plan and get through. I’m already stressed out and too tired in the evenings to think about putting a post together. I will still read and comment on posts by other book bloggers.
I am excited about the books that I’ve selected to read. A most delightful quartet of novels by women writers that comprises:
- Not Without Flowers by the Ghanaian writer Amma Darko
- The House in Paris by the Anglo-Irish novelist and short story writer Elizabeth Bowen
- The Memory of Love by the Sierra Leonean writer Aminatta Forna. The book is a 2011 Orange Prize Finalist. It won the Best Book for Africa Region of the 2011 Commonwealth Writers Prize. A big thank you to a special uncle who bought this for me.
- Cousins by the New Zealander and Maori writer Patricia Grace.
I will be back to blogging around May 20th. Enjoy your reading and have a good two weeks.
