Little does Maja-Pearce know that, when the time comes to leave, his tenants will put him through one of the fiercest struggles of his life in their attempts to stay put.

A desperate doctor commits murder to appease his wife. A drug-dealing family comes undone following a police raid. A young foreign-educated graduate, brimming with patriotic zest, returns to Nigeria to help rebuild her country, but quickly becomes disillusioned as the hassle and unpredictability of Lagos overwhelm her. And in jaunty, pointed observations, “Two-Way Streets” collects and reflects on the motifs of typical Lagos living.
The stories in this anthology take on the beautiful, clustered Lagos with aplomb and all-knowing authority, the characters’ lives coming together to weave a rich tapestry of a city that is at once startling in its grime and entertaining in its glory.

Of Women and Frogs is the coming-of-age story of Esi, a feisty half-Nigerian girl growing up in post-colonial Ghana, with occasional visits to her maternal family in Lagos. When her curiosity about her body leads to a ginger-in-the-vagina punishment from her stepmother, Esi begins to question the hypocrisy of the adults around her who place restrictions on her just because she is a girl.

"Why did you believe my hype when you knew your own hype was all fiction?" ☆ My not so perfect life, Sophie Kinsella ☆
This was my first Sophie Kinsella book and I can't wait to read her other workpieces. It was a light an fun read, written in a subtle manner but addressing a huge social issue of our inclination to match the norms of flawless, perfect lives, as depicted in social media platforms, as we forget that it is only a facade and that there lies obscured discrepancies behind all of it.
Also, if you are up for some motivation for your work and to culture eagerness to learn good qualities from people around you, then you must give this book a read.
📌 Wall shelves or bookcases?
My amount of books is rapidly growing. Though I already have a whole bookcase of printed beauties, even more books are spread throughout my house, and I’m stacking them in piles on the floor near the fireplace and spare shelves. I really don’t have free space for a new bookcase in the living room, and I know that more books are yet to come.
How do you cope with this avid readers’ issue? Maybe it’s time to free my guest room for a decent full-fledged home library? I doubt my guests will understand that. Haha 😆

For Penny Lee high school was a total nonevent. Her friends were okay, her grades were fine, and while she somehow managed to land a boyfriend, he doesn’t actually know anything about her. When Penny heads to college in Austin, Texas, to learn how to become a writer, it’s seventy-nine miles and a zillion light years away from everything she can’t wait to leave behind.
Sam’s stuck. Literally, figuratively, emotionally, financially. He works at a café and sleeps there too, on a mattress on the floor of an empty storage room upstairs. He knows that this is the god-awful chapter of his life that will serve as inspiration for when he’s a famous movie director but right this second the seventeen bucks in his checking account and his dying laptop are really testing him. .
When Sam and Penny cross paths it’s less meet-cute and more a collision of unbearable awkwardness. Still, they swap numbers and stay in touch—via text—and soon become digitally inseparable, sharing their deepest anxieties and secret dreams without the humiliating weirdness of having to see each other.

“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.” – J.R.R. Tolkien
I was tagged earlier by @mscarrowl to do the #asidefrombooks tag and it looked like fun so here goes:
• FAVOURITE HOBBY: Can I say eating truly copious amounts of cereal? No? Probably photography then. But also painting/drawing/making.
• FAVOURITE FOOD: Have I mentioned I like cereal? Big fan of cereal. Also waffles. Also also oranges. I go through regular food phases where I become transfixed on a eating a particular food item until I can’t stand to look at it anymore and right now that item is oranges.
• FAVOURITE COLOUR: dark greens! Ochre yellows! Browns!
• FAVOURITE ACCESSORIES: I don’t really wear a whole lot of accessories...I have a handful of necklaces that I wear but I’ve never been able to have the patience required to wear/keep track of bracelets or rings or earrings, unfortunately.
• DREAM HOME: a small, hand-built stone A-frame cottage with a small “upstairs” bedroom that overlooks the rest of the house and is accessible by ladder. There is a cozy, compact library room and lots of windows all throughout. There is one particularly large window in the kitchen that opens up into a pasture so that the horses can have their breakfast in the kitchen with us, out of the copper trough that is in-laid in the wide windowsill. I could go on but I’ll spare you. I have thought about this a lot. Possibly too much. 😂
• LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN THEATRES: Call Me By Your Name! Just simply the most beautiful thing I’ve maybe ever seen. The music, the cinematography, the Timothée Chalamet. All of it. Special mention to Michael Stuhlbarg’s monologue at the end. And also to Armie Hammer’s short shorts.
Feel free to participate or not regardless of tags, and let me know if you’d like me to tag you in this and I will!
I hope you’re all gearing up for an excellent weekend🖤

First there was an accident. What happened next changed everything.
On the night of her high school graduation, Vale McKinley and her boyfriend Crawford are in a terrible car accident. They were supposed to spend the summer planning for college, for a bright future full of possibility. Together. Instead, Vale spends long days in the hospital, hoping Crawford will awaken from a coma.
Slate Allen, a college friend of Vale’s brother, has been visiting his dying uncle at the same hospital. When he and Vale meet, she can’t deny the flutter of an illicit attraction. She tries to ignore her feelings, but she’s not immune to Slate’s charm. Slowly, they form a cautious friendship.
Then, Crawford wakes up… with no memory of Vale or their relationship. Heartbroken, Vale opts to leave for college and move on with her life. Except now, she’s in Slate’s territory, and their story is about to take a very strange detour.
