What up book people? So do yall remember the song that was trending on TikTok by Goya Menor - “U wanna bamba. U wanna G with the big boys.” Well today’s book is similar to what that song is about. It’s Lightseekers by Femi Kayode. Click here to go to the video that translates the song.
Anyway the book is set in Nigeria and it follows Dr. Phillip Taiwo, an investigative psychologist that lives in the states. He is asked to come to Nigeria by this high profile dude to investigate the torture and unaliving of these three college students. But the thing is, he ain’t a detective or anything. He STUDIES crime to understand why it happens. He doesn’t SOLVE it. But he agrees to help. I mean he ain’t really have a choice. But when he is trying to figure out what is going on, he isn’t getting any help from anyone including the po-po. The question becomes were they part of a cult. Alexa, go on and play the song.
Yall I loved this book! It’s a thriller so it was very fast paced. I haven’t seen a lot of people talk about this one on Bookstagram or BookTok. So read it and lemme know what yall think.
