Good Reads; Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Ifemelu is a girl you want to love and smack at the same time, but still deeply resonate with. That is the thing about Chimamanda; she describes the complexity of a woman while so gracefully elevating those toned down aspects of ourselves.

3. Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Americanah is a book you want to read before moving to America, but that you still need to read before moving to anywhere in the world. It is timeless and universal especially to the African woman.

I love how colorism is addressed in this book, how so many stereotypes are poked at; how life is rosy but with such big thorns in the Americas. I love the politics of it all and the voice Chimamanda gives to African immigrants.

If you have not read this book, you need to.
