A well-balanced life is a cup of tea in one hand & a book in the other!

Inno: Americanah – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Chimanda’s characters are so vivid and multifaceted, it’s like being constantly enlightened by the characters’ thoughts as they embark on their journeys. 
Grethe: The Lonely City: The Art of Being Alone
A bit like Geoff Dyer. Part art criticism, part travel writing, part biography.
Elzette: Bed Room and Tea at Anstey’s from Wake Up, This is Joburg by Mark Lewis and Tanya Zack.
Rhulani: Coconut – Kopano Matlwa
It was so relatable – I felt like I was living Ofilwe’s life as I was reading from the view of amillennial raised in the suburbs. 
Rachel: The Ministry of Utmost Happiness
Poignant from page 1. There is none who could weave words as she does.
Mthabisi: To Breathe Into Another Voice: A South African Anthology of Jazz Poetry
I love most how every page gently incarnates a sense of déjà vu through beautifully nostalgic tributes to life and music.
