BOOK REVIEW: LONG BRIGHT RIVER BY LIZ MOORE [GUEST POST]

Nancy Uchechukwu is my work colleague and bestie. We have one major common interest and that is – Books. However, unlike me, she isn’t shackled by the chains of the slow reader’s curse, she isn’t intimidated by big books and she goes for the hard hitting themes that will shake you to your very core and make you question the very essence of life. Not me. Because of her, I’ve read some of the best books ever written and I still have fond memories of those lovely stories. Anyways, she surprised me by sending me a review of a book she just read for the blog so here it goes.

Book Review: The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers

The first book I read in the Christian Fiction Genre was The Bluebird and the Sparrow by Janette Oke – a heart-warming story about two sisters. Later, I came across and read Redeeming love by Francine Rivers – a Historical romance novel adapted from the book of Hosea in the Bible. (It is being adapted into a movie to be released in 2021). Last year, I read Bridge to haven by Francine Rivers another historical romance novel. This year, an Instagram account suggested a virtual book review of The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers and in order to participate effectively I decided to read it. I’m finally sharing my thoughts on it.

Book Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Have you ever written off an author because of one book they wrote you did not like? I have. Once upon a time, I tried to read Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell and I hated the book. I couldn’t even finish it. When my work bestie recommended Attachments by the same author, I was like 😬 (grimacing face).

In this period, the internet is still a novelty and has been recently introduced in The Courier, A newspaper publishing organization. The management put in place rules to ensure ethical use of the internet by the employees at work. Lincoln is employed to enforce those rules by going through emails and flagging defaulters.

Book Review: Joys of Motherhood by Buchi Emecheta

Have you ever read a book when you were much younger and then when you got much older and you reread the book and you got more clarity? I experienced this when I reread Joys of Motherhood by Buchi Emecheta a few days ago. It was a recommended reading in my Secondary School days and I decided to reread it a few weeks ago and it feels like scales fell off my eyes.

NETFLIX AND CHILL • ANIMATION EDITION

Netflix is my favorite pastime. I literally live on the app. I decided to make something out of it by sharing what I’m watching, how it made me feel and perhaps give you ideas on what to watch and what to avoid.

The first post in this series would be on the cartoons I’ve seen on the app in recent times. I love animations and I don’t think anyone is too old to see one.
