YA Releases on My TBR [September 2018 Part 6]

YA Releases on My TBR [September 2018 Part 5]

Damn, Buried Beneath the Baobab Tree by Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani already feels like a trip. I can't even imagine such traumatic events and yet this story doesn't seem like the sort that is steeped in fiction. It feels a lot more real than that. And honestly?

As always, I still perpetually find these plots quite boring regardless of everything else. I…
