I sat down to read Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie because Mandy recommended it and well, Mandy’s recommendation are usually always good. What happened while reading was that I got lost in the world of Ifemelu, who is one of the best characters I’ve met in a book in a long while. She is strong, smart, obstinate, opinionated, and courageous. I highly recommend the book and if you want more insight into it, Mandy a great post about it that I recommend.

For me, I just read, there are only a few places where I even thought about wanting to highlight or remember a passage. I learned as well, being a white woman who grew up in a mostly white area who now lives in a very white city, it snapped me out of my world and into another that I need to learn more about.

I have no highlights, but there were plenty of things I could have done. It is a wonderful book, just read it, discover Ifemelu for yourself.
