Welcome to 2013!
I haven’t read any these, except “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time” by Mark Haddon, as I said earlier, it is my 2012 Non-African novel of the year.
“The Beautyful Ones Are Not yet Born” has been on my shelf for a while now. I am not sure when I am going to pick it up.
Hopefully soon I would read Kwakye’s novel.
It sounds like you had a very successful year over here! I am happy to see that you had so many visitors, and that your most popular book was one of my favorites!
Happy New Year, Zibilee.
