Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton

This was a book that had been highly recommended by several bloggers that I follow. I am very glad I read it as it is a part of history that I was not familiar with. The impact those events had on the humans that lived during this time and the generations that followed is sad and heartbreaking. Told using romance added a touch that I loved.

Audiobook Review: Beneath the Tamarind Tree: A Story of Courage, Family, and the Lost Schoolgirls of Boko Haram by Isha Sesay

I recently read a review on a book called Buried Beneath the Baobab Tree by Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani on A Haven For Book Lovers. This book was about the kidnapping of the Nigerian girls from the Government School in Chibok, Nigeria. After reading the review, I wanted to read it as well. Well, I went looking for this book and somehow switched the title around in my mind. I found another book about the same event, and that is the one I will be reviewing. I apologize in advance for my long review, but this book really spoke to me.

It seems like a lot, but I have about 8 audiobooks that are ARCs so it might be easier than anticipated. Are you interested in this challenge? Visit Read, Sleep, Repeat for more details.
