Hey y’all…
 
It’s time for the weekly 8!  Today, I’ll be sharing some very useful accounts to follow on Instagram so that you can get more information about books or just gawk at lovely photos of books. Did you know that looking at photos of books a can add 5 seconds to your lifespan? Yup, I just made that up but I think it’s totally true.
 
If you are new to #Bookstagram, you need to follow these wonderful accounts but wait. Are you following me yet? You should😊😊😊
Here’s my page: @Lipglossmaffia

Fifi is my goals. I love her taste in books but most importantly, you should follow her for her insights, she has such a deep awareness of books that she reads, so when she talks about them, you get very motivated to read them too. And you ALWAYS learn something new.

In the words of Abraham Lincoln where he discusses whether the Negro is a man or not: "If he is not a man, why in that case he who is a man may, as a matter of self-government, do just as he pleases with him. But if the Negro IS a man, is it not to that extent a total destruction of self-government to say that he too shall not govern himself? When the white man governs himself, that is self-government; but when he governs himself and also governs ANOTHER man, that is MORE than self-government — that is despotism. If the Negro is a MAN, why then my ancient faith teaches me that 'all men are created equal'; and that there can be no moral connection with one man's making a slave of another." * Speeches read for #BlackHistoryMonth – • Nelson Mandela (of course) • Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" (again, of course!) • Abraham Lincoln regarding the injustice of slavery. * The book is full of mountains of speeches which speak for themselves that I will be revisiting. 5 🌟 naturally.

This is my spirit animal, we have the same taste in books so she is a best friend that I haven’t met (yet). And I love how simple and straightforward her timeline is. No gimmicks, just books.

I love how introspective she is. If you want to know more about African Literature, this is one of the accounts to follow. And she gives such lovely reviews.

H O M E G O I N G ➰: . . Hello guys! I had initially started reading Burnt Shadows but it's an e-copy and I haven't settled into the idea of reading from a 4-inches screen. So I left it for Homegoing, which I got in hard copy, thanks to @uthmanzaynab 😘😘😘😘. . . The book started out well. Effia's story kept me glued and Esi's story tightened the rope. I wanted to know what became of their lineages. And I did. Admittedly, I came across the lack of character development @kenyanbibliophile hinted in her review but I forgave the few characters whose stories didn't really 'settle within my stomach' . . Winnie's story hurt the most. I had no idea watching an almost-white-but-actually-black-man making out with his black wife' was a thing to jerk off to. To accept that racism crippled the almost-white-black-man to actually make out with his wife at the command of a white man, was really hard for me. . . Racism still has that hold though; it still has the ability to make you tune out the ones you love.😣 . . Also, my sixth sense kept telling me Yaa will bring the two lineages, together, at the end, just like she started out with. And she did! It was at this point I had my 'OMG I knew this would happen' moment while reading this book. It was the deal breaker for me. Yaa Gyasi started out this book beautifully and while some of the characters might have lacked some depth, she nailed the end with such adroitness 😭😭😭😭. . . The book is a 4/5 and if you haven't read it, I suggest you add it to your tbr or move it up your tbr👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾. . #bookstagram#nigerianbibliophile#bookstagramnigeria#africanliterature#homegoing#yaagyasi#slavery#bookworm#bookdragon#booklover#bookflatlay#iheartbook#bookstagramfeatures#penguininstagram _________________________ QOTD: "What can grow from nothing?" _________________________ Baaba, Homegoing

His love for Stephen King inspired to start reading the works. His page is stuff of dreams, I love the layout of his photos. I have tried recreating some but I always get frustrated I mean, look at this?

"Anything with the power to make you laugh over thirty years later isn't a waste of time. I think something like that is very close to immortality." . —Stephen King, Hearts In Atlantis. . 📗 Hey up… Really couldn't think of anything to match today's tags that I liked, so I figured I'd use this photo out of my gallery… actually a fail, as it was only afterwards I noticed the 'read' had gone askew! . 📙 Bookstagram! It feels like I spent my life waiting for this. Like many of you I love to read and it's still slightly unbelievable that there is this digital space where bookworms from all round the world of different ages, creeds, races, politics, cola choices etc. can unashamedly share their love of books… and the cherry top… just oodles and oodles of amazing people. Thank you all. 😊😁 . 📺📺📺📺 Haven't posted much about my TV watching as I am watching the old Star Trek shows. Has anyone seen Star Trek Discovery yet? If so, what do you think of it so far? 📺📺📺📺 . 📘 . . . . #blackbooks #bookheart #bookishheart #bookspines #octoberbookchallenge #octoberphotochallenge

There is something extremely calming about this page. The filter. I think it’s the filter, it makes me feel very relaxed when I’m stalking the page. His collection is particularly interesting and inspires me to step out of my comfort zone once in a while.
