Happy monday! I thought I would share a book recommendation today. I have been a slow reader this year. Between january-march I had a period when I read one book every week, but at some point I just stopped, after making it half-way through Sara Stridsberg's Beckomberga (which I loved and that made it even more strange to just quit).
But, the one I wanted to tell you about is this one. Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. In short, it tells the story of a relationship between Ifemelu, who emigrates from Nigeria to the U.S, and Obinze, who was supposed to follow her but couldn't make it and ends up somewhere else. Starting this book, I knew nothing more than this, but I quickly realized it would definitely become a favorite. The story wedged itself deep into my heart while going through the pages. If you haven't already - read it.
