📚 TBR & Waiting 📱

Are you a fan of anthologies? Recently, I have found myself drawn to novellas and short story compilations. There’s something very satisfying about experiencing just a taste of another world! While some say short tales are for children, I think you’re never too old for a book that’s short and sweet! I plan to read this one after my current read!

📚 A Broken People’s Playlist
by Chimeka Garricks

Synopsis (via @goodreads ): A Broken People’s Playlist is a collection of short stories with underlying themes so beautifully woven that each story flows into the other seamlessly. From its poignant beginning in “Lost Stars” a story about love and it’s fleeting, transient nature to the gritty, raw musical prose encapsulated in “In The City”, a tale of survival set in the alleyways of the waterside. A Broken People’s Playlist is a mosaic of stories about living, loving and hurting through very familiar sounds, in very familiar ways and finding healing in the most unlikely places.

The stories are also part-homage and part-love letter to Port Harcourt (the city which most of them are set in). The prose is distinctive as it is concise and unapologetically Nigerian. And because the collection is infused with the magic of evocative storytelling, everyone is promised a story, a character, to move or haunt them.
