I am finally back into reading again, after taking a bit of a break. I just thought I would give a rundown of the books that I currently have on my bookshelf. My bookshelf is a bit scanty at the moment, I have only recently gotten back into buying physical books after moving over to e-books. This is also the bookshelf at my current house, I have a whole other one at my mother’s house which is much more extensive.
I must say that I am currently drawn to women authors, especially those from Africa and India – I’m not sure why that is. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s The thing around your neck was my first venture into reading short stories, it was a really good book – I’m still on the fence about short stories though, I don’t like ‘unfinished’ endings, I’m a happy endings type of girl.
Taiye Selasi’s Ghana must go was a book I was excited about reading, but oi! I found it to be such a hard read, I barely made it to halfway and I surrendered. Food rules by Michael Pollan was a fun and funny read – I wrote about it on this blog post.
These little ones are filled with nuggets of information about careers, mindfulness and spirituality. I collect them from Destiny magazine. They are awesome to refer to now and again and small enough to keep in your handbag!
