30 day blogging challenge – Part 1

Two posts in less than a week?? I did promise y’all I would be more focused now so yay:) I came across a blogging challenge on twitter from the @AfroBloggers account. 30 days, 30 different topics to cover to help one either start a blog or in my case – restart blogging and I decided to do it in a different way. Instead of prolonging the actual writing process I intend on doing by rolling out 30 posts throughout this month on the prompts given on the challenge… I’ll cover those prompts here, summarize a bit so it’s not an entire novel and get both of us reacquainted with each other in half the time! I hear cheers in the imaginary crowd in my head so I’ll just go ahead and start.

Typewriter Tuesdays – Purple Hibiscus

My last review of the year is here and of course it had to be a book by Chimamanda Adichie! She is after all only one of my favourite authors of all time but I digress. Some of you (read my friend Mumbe) may be wondering why it took me so long to finally read this book. In all honesty, I actually never paid it any attention. Well not until I started getting into a lot of African literature reading earlier this year. I had already read all of Adichie’s other books before this year began but since this was her very first novel, decided to finally give it a chance this year. I’m really glad I did.
