Not all heroes wear capes. Trevor's mom, Patricia certainly didn't, she probably wore a large trampoline sheet and while this might be reaching, she's a woman who is literally "goals". She knew what she wanted - and despite what it seemed like, she went for it. Boom, we've got @trevornoah book - Born A Crime. It chronicles Trevor's growing up in post-apartheid South Africa. A product of a white father and black mother, he struggled with an identity considering how racism peaked in the climes post apartheid. With a fierce and religious mother, unwilling to settle for less, Trevor's life was always going to get the push - he'd learn life, and feel pain in loss. Born A Crime is a rich text spiced with the author's fusion of colloquialisms and an endearing appeal to walk his journey side by side.

When a book has an amazing blend of themes such as: culture, history, relationships, self discovery and pursuit of happiness, you can expect to have a good read. Everything Good Will Come by Sefi Atta is a coming of age novel about a girl growing into a woman in postcolonial Nigeria and England. Throughout the novel the main character, Enitan, is faced with various issues such as family troubles, rape, cheating boyfriends, and imprisonment. Beyond Enitan’s personal entanglements, the novel is a biting commentary on post-independence governments in Nigeria and tensions between Igbo (Biafrans), Yoruba, and Hausa ethnic groups after the Biafrian War. This book is a page Turner, it sheds light on how our society got here. #TuesdayTurner #Books #Biafran #Hausa #SefiAtta #AfricanWriter #African #Read #InstagramWriters #AllThingsBrightAndBooks #EverythingGoodWillCome #BubooxBooks #BubooxReads #Buboox #Fiction #authorsofinstagram #Authors #Review #BookTalk #BookReview #BookAnalysis #CelebratingAuthors

Beautifully captured in The Joys of Motherhood is Nnu Ego's struggle which is akin to that of many African women in search of a male child. While the story first seems to be about the gender, it soon grows past that with our main character struggling to raise her children with the expectations that she gets the satisfaction a mother derives from her kids. She gets into competition with a rival wife (a common happening in Africa) but is able to toss her out on the basis of superiority (still another common African mentality). Nnu Ego looks to be searching for love, especially in her Children but they have other ideas as they look to chart their lives thus leaving her an unhappy old woman at the time of her death. Despite people thinking she had 'won' with her children's obvious achievement, the reality is golden in Nnu's face. She's alone. This is a book worth turning as it lingers in the minds of the readers. The astute reflection of our current society makes the "Joys" of Motherhood a real myth that isn't going anytime soon. #TuesdayTurner #BubooxReads #TheJoysOfMotherhood #BookReview #Summary #Fiction #AfricanWriter #Africans #Writers #WritersWorld #AmWriting #writingcommunity #writerslife
