Thanks for all the books: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

After getting into a bit of a reading slump, and not really finding anything all that engaging, I picked up Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and within 5 pages, I was hooked right out of the slump.

It’s got everything that I love in a book – multi-perspective narrative (take note Nicholas Sparks, this is how it should be done!), well-drawn and interesting characters, whose development I care about, beautifully constructed background/location, and a plot that keeps the characters moving along. It’s just so good and, for the first time in a long time, I’m thankful that it’s a weighty book, because I want to stay immersed in this world for a long time.

What’s keeping you out of the reading doldrums this week?
