As if a novel had to be about only one thing.

I rFeatured imageecently read Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie – which I consider to be one of the best novels I have read in while. Also, I would totally recommend this novel to anyone who likes to read about race, immigration, racism and -also, yes!- love. While reading, I stumbled upon a lot of quotes I would like to share. I still have to list them all and I soon will, but I would like to share this one quote in advance. This is so true, yet sometimes so hard to explain. Thanks to Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, I now have a quote ready when someone ‘pops the question’: 

“Why did people ask “What is it about?” As if a novel had to be about only one thing.”
