First Giveaway

In light of my blog reaching 10k views, and my one year Bookstagram anniversary, (Here's how I embarked on this journey.), I'll be doing a series of not-so-great giveaways (but I really hope you like them) as my humble thank you to the loving blogosphere and book community. I've reached milestones that I never thought I could reach and met people I'll cherish with all my heart. Here's to posting more frequently on the blog and meeting new people from all over the world,
This month, we're reading African Literature at my Fav book club (I'm gonna be a wee bit biased here), Fictional Fortress and since I own two copies of "We Need New Names" by NoViolet Bulawayo, a literary masterpiece which was shortlisted for Man Booker Prize 2013, I thought of introducing this story of Darling into your lives. Hope this book moves and inspires you. Along with the book, I'll also be giving away a hand-made crocheted bookmark.

Book Blurb: (via Goodreads)
A remarkable literary debut -- shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize! The unflinching and powerful story of a young girl's journey out of Zimbabwe and to America.

Darling is only ten years old, and yet she must navigate a fragile and violent world. In Zimbabwe, Darling and her friends steal guavas, try to get the baby out of young Chipo's belly, and grasp at memories of Before. Before their homes were destroyed by paramilitary policemen, before the school closed, before the fathers left for dangerous jobs abroad.

But Darling has a chance to escape: she has an aunt in America. She travels to this new land in search of America's famous abundance only to find that her options as an immigrant are perilously few. NoViolet Bulawayo's debut calls to mind the great storytellers of displacement and arrival who have come before her-from Junot Diaz to Zadie Smith to J.M. Coetzee-while she tells a vivid, raw story all her own.
