Some changes…..New Name…..New Book Blog

I’ve been gone for a minute, now I’m back with the Jump Off…


I changed the name of this blog (used to be charoflondon) for a few reasons: It’s not my main blog anymore, I have a new book blog; So I wanted a name to reflect what this site here  is- somewhere to share notes and reviews on films, books, music, travels, life, arts and pop culture; Also, I’m pretty sure people are pronouncing the ‘char’ as in ‘charcoal’ and not as in ‘Charlene’- my own personal name.

I will keep posting on the above topics here and will link to my new book blog when I have new book reviews/ lists etc. Especially looking forward to reading more books by writers from London this year. Reviews up so far:

Changing My Mind: Occasional Essays by Zadie Smith

The Good Immigrant edited by Nikesh Shukla

Children Of Blood And Bone, Tomi Adeyemi

Throwback: Aya Of Yop City

Stay With Me, Ayobami Adebayo
