Hello lovelies, welcome to September monthly wrap up with Bookish Uche.

My reading for the month of September wasn’t a really good one, but then remember the goal is to be consistent reader. That is what matters the most.
You reading one book in a month is absolutely valid.

I couldn’t get to read more because, I had some health issues which dealt with me seriously. I couldn’t sit, sleep, read or literally do anything.
And since health is more important, I had to pay complete attention to it.

During the treatment process, I was able to read 3 books when I felt better and comfortable.

Here are the list of books I read in September

1. Heads of Colored People by Nafissa Thompson-Spires (Physical copy). My rating was 4/5

Book~Review (Heads of Colored People by Nafissa Thompson-Spires |4✨)⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ Heads of Colored People is a collection of 12 short stories, that primarily showcase through the various experience of the characters that, blackness doesn't comes in a single way.⁣ ⁣ This read is a debut collection by Nafessa and my first time reading her work. Although having read reviews on this particular book which were nice, I never thought a collection could be this beautifully written and captivating. I saw reasons why readers recommended this.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Despite been a collection, the way some of the stories interconnected and characters reoccurring was effortlessly.⁣ ⁣ The diverse themes been discussed, were important ranging from vulnerability of black bodies to sexism, mental health, fetishism, disability, sucide, and more.⁣ ⁣ •⁣ _⁣ The first story (Four Fancy Sketches, Two Chalk Outlines, and No Apology), was mind-blowing. The opening was powerful, and I didn't for once see the blow up coming.⁣ ⁣ Belles Lettres was my most enjoyable. The pettiness, I just couldn't stop laughing and giving out this yoruba vibe interjection.⁣ ⁣ Sucide, Watch made me came up with a QOTD: Is suicide an ultimate act of selfishness?⁣ ⁣ I had an experience that gave me this impression, rather than the victim been selfish, I tend find some of the saving reasons been giving selfish instead.⁣ ⁣ Whisper to a scream got my emotion. It made me angry and sad.⁣ •⁣ _⁣ Generally the stories were good and at some particular point I was able to relate to a character with an issue.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Heads of Colored People is a satirical, humorous and heartwrenching read.
