  • Review: Sankofa by Chibundu Onuzo
    I feel like I’m always saying something along these lines, but I’ve been meaning to read Chibundu Onuzo’s Welcome to Lagos for some time now. Too many books, always. Anyways, I got lucky with this one falling into my audiobook queue curtesy of my favorites over at libro.fm. This. Has. Everything. I don’t remember the last time I was so caught up in a story, but Sankofa kept me hanging. The writing is fresh, quick, and enthralling. I will most definitely be hunting down a copy of Welcome to Lagos because even though I know it is a different story following different characters, I just want more of Onuzo’s writing.
