Book Recommendations For Newbies
A question I’ve been asked enough times to warrant a blog post goes thus;
“Hello, you unparalleled vision of beauty and paragon of wisdom, I know you’re really into novels. What books would you recommend for someone trying to get into fiction?”
Me: say less!
The truth is, if it were up to me, I could drop a hot 20 books, but apparently, that would be overwhelming. So what I have done, is chosen 3 books (of the many I love) that are tried, tested champions in my recommendation basket. I am yet to meet one person I have recommended (one of) these to, that hasn’t enjoyed or at least been eager to discuss them.
For a reason I am still figuring out, Happy Noisemaker has a Youtube channel (still pretty new) and I shared my recommendations in the latest video which is linked below. Please make sure you subscribe and click the notification button so you’re aware whenever I upload a brand new video.
Here are my recommendations (and yes, yes, those are affiliate links)
- Stay With Me by Ayobami Adebayo – https://amzn.to/2YHcqSb
- The Secret Lives of Baba Segi Wives by Lola Shoneyin – here
- Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – https://amzn.to/3jhq9ZC
If you’ve read any of these, let me know what you thought of the book(s) and if you have any more recommendations, please share them!
