Blonde Roots by Bernadine Evaristo

Hello My Cakers,  Bakers and Beauties!

This is just a short post to bring your attention to this book:Blonde Roots by Bernadine Evaristo

This was an interesting read, the premise is that the Transatlantic Slave Trade has been reversed and Africans have enslaved Europeans,  young Doris Scagglethorpe (known by her slave name of Omorenomwara) must attempt to escape from her cruel master if she hopes to ever see her family again.

It’s not clear to me when the novel is supposed to be set as it seems like it is different periods in History in the different geographical locations,  don’t let that put you off though, because it is still an interesting read and well worth borrowing from your local library, The author herself is of duel parentage -Nigerian and British.

The Denzel Principle – Controversial but a good read

The Denzel Principle - Controversial but a good read

I just finished this book and I thought I’d share it with you. I borrowed it from my local library, sorry to be so old fashioned but I love libraries and they are really important community hubs, with all the budget cuts if we don’t use our local libraries we will lose them.

This book made me laugh all the way through, the tone is light and anecdotal throughout – please understand that I was reading it purely out of curiosity as I do not need to find a good Black man.

The book is full or profanity though so it’s not for the easily offended, or those lacking a sense of humour, however it contains some interesting points of view and some home truths for some people regardless of ethnicity or gender. I don’t agree with everything he says in the book but that’s not the point of reading is it?  I believe that you have to open your mind to listen to arguments you don’t agree with as well as the ones you do.

 

Thanks,

Luv Sian x
