Nataka Books Reviews: 

Yinka, Where is Your Huzband? [1]

Just a rant: What is it with society that expects women over 25 to be married with two children and a dog? Like can't a woman get a break from societal expectations? Where is it written that a woman should marry by 25? 


Genre: Contemporary Romance 


Anci's book summary: Yinka, where is your huzband follows oxford graduate Yinka whose meddling aunts and mother want her to get married because she is 31 and her young sister is expecting . It was hilarious following Yinka's Post-It plan to get a date to one of her best friend's wedding cue the squat challenge. If that isn't enough she is reeling from a job loss and navigating bad dates, tinder dates, a weird sense of self whilst trying to conform to the wife title everyone wants for her. A huge thanks to Viking Books UK, Nataka Books for the complimentary copy. All opinions expressed are my own 


What I liked about the book: The way the author brought out female friendships and did not idolize them as we saw them laugh and fight too, the themes of religion and therapy in the book as the characters seemed relatable 


What I didn't like: How the author reminded us of all the Marcus we have encountered and I honestly believed that some chapters dragged on.
