Cozy Book Club February Book: Americanah

Book Club

SORRY about the delay on the announcement of the next (February’s) book. I’ve been in the jungle in Colombia with the most terrible hotel internet. Putting up Monday’s post took-—I’m not even kidding-—a few hours to upload the photos to the blog. It was insane.

BUT now I’m at the airport in Medellín with 2018 internet speed and the time is now to share the next book.

The book I chose for this month is called Americana by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. This book takes place in Nigeria, London and The United States. I felt like this would be a welcomed contrast to Shaker Heights, Ohio.

This book explores a few themes but mostly it seems to be a love story, between girl and boy, separated by an ocean and a post 9/11 America. It seems like a fascinating book that would also yield an interesting discussion.

The author, Adichie, has won numerous awards from the three books she’s published. The book also has a crazy amount of positive reviews everywhere so the risk of it being boring/bad/lame is VERY slim.

I loved January’s book and it seems like everyone did as well! I hope this book is the same. My hopes are high.

Are you gonna be reading along?!

We’ll be back here on March 15th with a discussion AND I’ll be sharing a recipe inspired by the book.


P.S. If you share it on the Instagram, tag your photo/Insta Story #cozybookclub 🙂

P.P.S. You can find it on Amazon as a soft cover, Kindle and in audible form.

    This book is a so lovely! We read her book Half of a Yellow Sun for my book club a few years ago and I loved it so much that I went out and read a bunch of her other novels. All of her books hold a special place in my heart! I would also suggest looking into My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante for a book club option 🙂

    This book is amazing! I haven’t been disappointed by anything Adichie has written.
    She gave an incredibly powerful TedTalks several years ago on the power/danger of stories,

    So is there going to be a discussion on this book? Or did I miss that it was not going to happen? It does say there was going to be a post March 15th.

        Oh good!!! I was hoping this would still happen!!! I still haven’t finished Americanah (on chapter 35) – I’m loving it and excited for the recipe, discussion and next book pick!!!

    I finally finished the book! Glad I’m not the only one who has trouble finding time to read as much as I want to. I have a toddler, so the train ride to and from work is my main “me” time. I don’t know how people can read like 5 books in a month while having more than one kid!! LOL – Looking forward to the discussion!

    Hi! I’m half way through this book and love it. I’m hoping I can finish it before the book club discussion. Do you have a new date set for the discussion and is it just here on this blog post? Thanks!
