Americanah, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Every summer reading list should include at least one love story and Americanah is our top pick this summer. Forget chic lit, this love story is anything but superficial. The story follows the lives of childhood sweethearts, Ifemelu and Obinze, across three continents and explores themes of race, identity and the idea of ‘home’. If you’re looking for a novel that tackles modern day racism and can be devoured in one sitting, Americanah is your best bet.
