Road Trip Readathon Wrap Up


I loved the idea of the Road Trip Readathon by Ginger Mom Reads however this month was not a great book month for me. I’ve felt very blah the last week and have gotten behind in my tbr again. You can find my original post here where I plan my trip around Africa.


So I did knock two books off my tbr A Long Walk to Water and City of Saints and Thieves.

A Long Walk to Water I really liked. I gave it 5 stars. City of Saints and Thieves unfortunately I did not finish. I just wasn’t feeling it at all.

Morocco- Secret Son by Laila Lalami

Algeria- The Stranger by Albert Camus

Niger- Distrubance-Loving Species by Peter Chilson

Libya- In the Country of Men by Hisham Matar

Egypt- The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

Sudan- A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park

Ethiopia- Cry of the Giraffe by Judie Oron

Somalia- The Orchard of Lost Souls by Nadifa Mohamed

Kenya- City of Saints and Thieves by Natalie C Anderson

Tanzania- Golden Boy by Tara Sullivan

Mozambique- Sleepwalking Land by Mia Couto

Zimbabwe- We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo

Botswana- White Dog Fell From the Sky by Eleanor Morse

South Africa- The Woman Next Door by Yewande Omotoso

I have everything checked out still so I’m totally going to still read them all or at least try too.
