10 Nigerian Women Authors You Should Know. (According to my Bookshelf)

This month I will be presenting a list featuring female Nigerian authors, I have read some books by some of the authors, but these authors are well known and recognized in the literary scene, I’m sure you’ll sport one or all authors you know lol. I picked Nigeria because well I am Nigerian of course.

p.s. by clicking the names of the authors, it takes you to the authors Goodreads page on another page, for you to see their list of books, view the blurbs and also check out people’s reviews and thoughts on their books.
