Review: Yinka, where is your huzband?

Yinka, here is MY huzband? Yinka, thirty one year old single woman who's spent the last few years focused on her career while her family focuses on her singleness? Hmm, why does that sound so familiar?

I really identified with many aspects of Yinka's life. Granted no one has ever very loudly and publicly prayed for me to find a husband but I have been made to feel that my other successes aren't as successful as finding a man would be. Does that make sense?

Lizzie Damilola Blackburn does an excellent job of bringing us into Yinka's world and making us care about her, cry with her and cringe with her. I said "Oh, Yinka" out loud several times and that's a very good sign. I really loved these characters and so many of the issues Yinka deals with feel real. And the ending is brilliantly done, I put the book down feeling happy and satisfied.

I 100% recommend this book for literally everyone but especially those trying to balance friendships, work and dating.

Look out for Yinka, where is your huzband? coming out in early 2022 or pre-order now :)
