Wake up call by Nky Omeka

I’m back with another beautiful book for you 😍😍 I’m on a roll this month, finished my fourth read of the month, drum rolls!!

Now to Wake up call by Nky Omeka, this is the most annoying book I have read this year. πŸ˜’ I liked it!

I always say books that hold your interest and bring out varying reactions from start to finish are the best ones.

This story is of a young lady, Elohor, an athlete, aiming to be the Athletic Champion for Nigeria or not. Elohor loves her family but has been given a difficult height to attain. In addition, Odafe, the son of a wealthy man, wants Elohor but she doesn’t, he is a pompous, rude and overbearing man but her family wants him for her.

In a bid to let go off her struggles she meets Ifeanyi again after series of events, a young non-graduate, spoilt who depends on his elder brother for everything. A love so strong but naive grows but are they meant to be with each other?

Elohor’s family aren’t happy with her choices, Elohor feels her family is selfish, life happens and Elohor learns that life has a lot in store for her. “Love is only one of the many reasons to be happy” , indeed a wake up call.

I loved Elohor but she was extremely foolish, the Nigerian Aunty in me wanted to help her set her head straight, cos what was this?

Her family was also very selfish and they never tried to understand. This family wasn’t your typical Nigerian family, Elohor got away with a lot of things that I could never try in my home. I mean who brings their boy friend to their family home and makes out in the parlour or accepts marriage proposal from a man who hasn’t met your family the Nigerian way, my parents would show you pepper.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

To the men, none of them deserved her. Nky did us dirtyπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚, this was a case of choosing the lesser evil but in the end love wins, corrects and teaches.

This was a really calm read as always. Looking for a book to engage your mind, looking for a leisure read with annoying characters whom you would eventually come to love, this book is for you.

Not So Perfectly Concealed by Nky Omeka :Book Review

Hi hii! Been in a reading funk since last month, I couldn’t finish any book but I was able to finish just one. The lovely author of this book reached out and boom, reading vibes back!

If you have been following my reading journey you would know I dedicated 2020 to reading books from different genres especially African authored books and it’s been an interesting experience. I couldn’t be more proud of our African authors, they are such amazing writers and this book was a perfect dose of drama for me.

Vivian is a lawyer and the CEO of her multinational makeup brand ‘vivi’ s cosmetics ‘. Vivian is rude, proud and has all the rich entitled woman personality.

What made her who she is? She has secrets which has turned her life to what it is and we are taken through the drama that is Vivian’s life.

She is almost mobbed and raped but is saved by one she least expects to help her and a budding romance evolves.

Then her past butts in, in form of ‘Jax Tekena’.

What happens to Vivian and her budding relationship? What secrets do we uncover?

So many feelings while I wrote this review. This was a really lovely read. A Nigerian story that entails what most ladies pass through in the university.

Nky is an awesome author, I can’t wait to read all her books, she has a way of presenting suspense, she feeds it to you gradually, she makes you want to read till the end, makes you eager to find out what’s going to happen next. I literally felt every emotion and that’s when I know I have read a good book.

I really was angry while reading Vivian’s story but it is reality and that’s the worst part. Thank God these days sexual abuse by lecturers are reducing but is it gone or we just don’t hear about them?

It was the audacity for me dears, this Jax Tekena guy, I was sold on him from the start, I fell in love with him at the beginning of the book, made me ask, if I could fall for him in a book, in reality it wouldn’t be any different right?

We ladies are so used to the good life, no stress zone, good love stories, we enjoy them and that was Vivian, she was focused but wanted to live a little, see where that got her. Which begs the question, how does one trust people?

I’m so happy Vivian got her revenge(always here for the violence and drama dears😏😈)

and her happy ever after. She did it, she messed up, she learnt and she rose above all the issues.

Y’all definitely have to read Not So Perfectly Concealed and all Nky’s books. I cried, it’s been a while since I read a tear inducing book, I really needed that.

Till the next review!!

Don’t forget to read, available on Okada books and Bambooks app.
