Hi! I’m Darkowaa. I hope this blog stirs your interest in reading African novels or books written by people of African descent – in Africa and the diaspora!
I love the following genres:
- African Literature
- African-American or Black Literature
- Caribbean Literature
Reading these genres is a hobby I thoroughly enjoy. I prefer novels written by Africans/persons of the African diaspora because they excite me, they are familiar and I find that I relate to the various narratives in many ways.
Majority of the book reviews and books discussed on this blog will be from the genres mentioned above. Most of the books I review and discuss are my personal copies and I try my best not to include spoilers. I’m not a writer. I’m just here to share my interests and express my views on the novels I read!
Some reviews, most of the books I’ve read and my to-read list can also be found on my Goodreads account- here.
My book ratings KEY:
★★★★★ (5 stars) – Amazing book, I loved it. Absolutely recommend!
★★★★ (4 stars) – Great book. Highly recommend!
★★★ (3 stars) – Good book. I recommend it, I guess.
★★ (2 stars) – Thumbs down. I do NOT recommend it.
★ (1 star) – meh.
