I just finished Jamaican writer's novel Hardward by J.L Campbell (aka Jayda McTyson) and the Graveyard book by Neil Gaiman.
I'm starting on House of Diamonds to review which is being release on the 22 Nov by Karen Jones.

I finally started in my second Nigeria novel which is actually turning out so good: Purple Hibuscus. I know everyone has probably read this one.

Cheers

I'm so addicted to Dan Brown. I'm reading THE LOST SYMBOL for the 2nd time
Re: What Nigerian Books Are You Reading? by Oluchi007(f): 4:43pm On Dec 04, 2011
I recently read 'Things fall apart' again. Buchi Emecheta is a great writer. Has a talent for delving into a woman's psyche. Adiche is also good - 'Half of a yellow sun' was quite engaging. On the whole I don't read as many Nigerian books as I'd like to 'cos I buy most of my novels from charity shops grin

Re: What Nigerian Books Are You Reading? by Nickydrake(m): 7:25pm On Dec 11, 2011
Unless I read the topic wrong, and I doubt i did, the poster's asking about the NIGERIAN books you're reading. So what's stuff about Dan Brown, Michael Crithcton and some Jamaican folk doing here? undecided

NIGERIANS read this is true. its population also helps writers cope. what is the case of my country cameroon? you launch a novel and people may only buy it at the launch while the rest is left to rot at the store despite the serious theme the book is centered on and despite the books propagation.

So far I have read the book titled "The Nigerian Tragedy" written by Aderonke Moyinlorun. It is a wonderful book especially as it talks about the problems of Nigeria in a fictional way. In this moment that we are in Nigeria, "the Nigeria Tragedy"is a book we all need to read to give us hope that a better Nigeria is possible. I strongly recommend this book. It just $2.99 on kindle, http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00712ROOA and $6.99 for paperback http://www.amazon.com/Nigerian-Tragedy-Aderonke-B-Moyinlorun/dp/146118598X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1327444970&sr=8-1
