The Girl with the Louding Voice tells an incredibly inspiring story of a young girl from Nigeria. It presents the realities of girls born in poor families in rural Nigeria and how domestic slavery is the beaten path for many of them. A story I recommend reading with all my heart!

Definitely one of those books that I'll recommend to all my friends!

I am back in business! Book blogging business, I mean 🙂 Today's review is about a book I randomly chose this book while browsing Bookster’s digital shelves.
As someone who did not enjoy learning about history at school, I find myself surprisingly intrigued by historical fiction books. When I saw "The Tattooist at Auschwitz" on the shelves of Nautilus bookstore, I bought it immediately and read it only few days after.
Don't you love the feeling when you read a book review and you think "oh, this sounds like a book I must read"? That's exactly what happened when I read Izzy's review of "The Miniaturist". And here I am now, writing my own review of this lovely book.
