Just Read It re-launch

MeWell hello!

It been a while since I last posted, and those of you who were following this blog have probably all given up hope of ever seeing another post on Just Read It. Be honest you thought the blog was dead – the truth be told it was for while. And I’m really sorry for the loss!

But good news, in fact awesome news – the blog is back!

Expect the usual bookย reviews, thoughts on genres, and some newย gems such as a spotlight on authors old and new. In addition, I’m also looking for contributors to the blog.

So if you are a budding or seasoned writer, reviewer, blogger with a passion for literature especially (but not limited to) from African and Caribbean lit and literature other parts of the world, please do get in touch I’d love to hear from you.

Similarly, if you are a writer, or a publisher and you have a novel that you’d like me to review, I’d be delighted to hear from you.

My desire is to share stories. Stories that don’t alwaysย get read or heardย , because they’re not mainstream. But when you get to read them, it’s like a tiny bit of the puzzle of life has just been discovered and slotted into place.

In the meantime, keep an eye out for the next post coming by the end of September 2016.

My review of the fantastic joyride through UK Grime history that is Hold Tight by @unseenflirtations is now up on the @thebritishblacklist website! Read and share ๐Ÿ˜Š
#holdtight #reviews #recommended #blackbritishliterature #blackbritishauthors #bookstagram #books #grime #music Always a pleasure and a thrill when a author responds to a review you've written about their books! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
#fangirling #courttianewland #thescholar #bookreview #bookstagram #justreadit So someone (or someones) keeps viewing the review post I uploaded about this novel Lynch's Road by D.D. Armstrong. This is awesome but it was 6 YEARS ago that I wrote the post, so why the sudden interest?? I mean 25 views in one day! I'm not complaining, just curious ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€. Anyway if you haven't already, read the book. It's pretty good! #bookreview #bookstagram #blackbritishliterature #blackbritishauthors #random #blogs #justreadit #lynchsroad So I had some thoughts, about Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's response to the French journalist Caroline Brouรฉ. First that it was an epic clap back! Second her explanation that she attributes the question to a poor attempt by Brouรฉ, to be ironic, shows how gracious she can be in the face of blatant ignorance. Third, there is an issue surrounding access to books/bookshops which would have been a better conversation. To read more, visit the blog. Link in bio. Or comment below.

What did you think?#newbooks #bookstagram #recommended #bornacrime #trevornoah #welcometolagos #chibunduonuzo #dearijeawele #chimamandangoziadichie So went to the bookstore in Berlin and I was super excited because it's the kind of place you can just chill and read to your heart's content. A bit like Borders (remember that London store before it went bust?). There's also a music department and dvds etc. Literally my idea of heaven!! Defo coming back here๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ
