The girl: Africa, Nigeria
The getup: Ankara short gown; bright yellow and blue with red details, accessorized with green beads and red heels.
I had a hard time starting this book. I had to push it aside a couple of times because I didn’t quite understand the POV. But, Through sheer will and more than anything else, “curiousity” i got hooked and suprisingly ended up enjoying this book!
Oyeyemi writes with a witty and unhurried style that is nothing short of magic mixed with foreboding. Plus, I particularly loved the tiny little ways she dipped into the “yoruba” tribe in Nigeria, it was brilliant!
“White is for Witching” evoked a lot of unclear feelings. It was in the way she depicted the main characters in an almost quiet horror and intensity and i felt like i had to use up all my energy just to try and understand what the book even meant.
