This month I read 19 books, bringing my YTD total up to 87 books so far. I have to say though that this is the first time in a long while that I can say I read a book that was stunningly brilliant – each word perfectly chosen by the author. In The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill, the characters – particularily that of Aminata Diallo (the main character) took my breath away. This is an amazing story. Beautifully told and heartwrenching. Perfect. Unforgettable. If you click on the link you should be directed to the Harper Collins Canada website where you can browse inside and see a bit of what I’m talking about.
