The time has come.
Nanowrimo is over, and Christmas is around the corner, and it’s time to be thinking about new year’s resolutions.
So I’m in the process of trying to finish the Africa Reading Challenge I blogged about earlier. I’ve read two Abouet books and I’m still swimming in a slow and stately fashion through Ngugi’s latest. I’m going to save the last part of the challenge for Karen King-Abisola’s Hangman’s Game, though, because it’ll be a good segue into Caribbean books.
The Caribbean Reading Challenge kicks off on January 1st!
- The Hangman’s Game, Karen King-Aribisala
- “New Negroes from Africa”: slave trade abolition and Free African settlement in the nineteenth-century Caribbean, Roseanne Marion Adderley
- Omeros, Derek Walcott
- A Turn in the South, V. S. Naipaul
- There is an Anger that Moves, Kei Miller
