"Book On It"

"Where is my bookmark? Which audiobook are my headphones plugged into?"

My bookmark is in the memoir “I Can’t Date Jesus” by Michael Arceneaux. I am laughing my way through as I turn the pages (and not quick enough). It is about Michael’s faith and dating experiences along with his upbringing and family. The pop culture references are exceptional and the light of Michael’s personality shine on the pages.

I am plugged into the novel “Stay with Me” by Ayobami Adebayo. In the expanse of their relationship and marriage, Yejide and Akin move through the trials that connect them to each other. I am enjoying the inviting pace of the narration and place of 1980s Nigeria, bringing rich layers to the novel.
