It Is Not Writer’s Block or Something Like That

My deep and sincere apologies for abandoning this little writing project of mine. Trust me, it is not writer’s block or anything close to it that is responsible for it. It is just the the demands of my 8 t0 5 job seven days a week. Okay, don’t let me come here and cry out my woes, a man has got to pay bills abi. All the same I am sorry for keeping my few followers waiting for fresh shares of my reading experience.

So, since I last punched in letters and words onto this blog I have read the following books and I have been dying to write a proper review or say personal reader’s experience about them. Here they are –

  1. Love Is Power Or Something Like That – A. Igoni Barrett
  2. Smithereens Of Death – Olubunmi Familoni
  3. The Fishermen – Chigozie Obioma
  4. Walking Shadows – Jude Dibia
  5. Season of Crimson Blossom – Abubakar Adam Ibrahim
  6. Blackass – A. Igoni Barrett

These books gave me new experiences and perspective into Nigerian Literature. From a debut like Smithereens of Death by Olubunmi Familoni to double doses from A. Igoni Barrett whose books show how a writer evolves in style and trend to Abubakar’s Season of Crimson Blossom where love is explored between two unlikely people and in an unlikely place, with dire issues of culture and social perspective tied around the plot and theme. No doubt these books gave me a roller coaster ride and my reviews of them are coming up shortly, one for each day of this week. Watch out.
