Stay with me

Stay with me is a captivating story written by Nigerian Author Ayobami Adebayo. I read this over Christmas break and I could not put it down. The story is about a Yoruba woman and her struggles with infidelity in a culture that places a lot of pressure on women to have children. Without giving too much away, let's just say the biggest lessons I learned from the book are; be honest in your relationships and don't get married out of loneliness. 

When life laughs at you, you have to join as if you’re in on the joke.
— Ayobami Adebayo 

I really enjoyed reading this book because the story was captivating and entertaining. The authors writing style gave me Chimamanda vibes and the characters were very entertaining. I'm not Yoruba, so I appreciated the author explaining some of the cultural terms and translating things. Overall it was a great read and I recommend you read it too.
