Who is Naija Book Bae?

I am Tommy Kareem and my mother also named me Omolara, which is why I go by Lara. I’m a twenty-something, Aries nineties baby.

I’m proudly Nigerian. I’m kind of an ambivert, but my personality trait is ISFJ which stands for Introversion, Sensing, Feeling & Judgment.

I’m a bibliophile, means I’m an avid reader. Reading is my number one hobby, I do it all the time, I can’t go a week without reading, three days tops. Yes, I always have a book that I am reading, even when I am in a drought. A drought to me is not reading new books, but still re-reading the ones I’ve read.

I love writing and have published a non fiction work A Guide to Self-Publishing and a fiction work Not Just Another Interlude a feel-good Nigerian romance.

Music gives me life, I love music, exploring, discovering and listening to the different sounds.

I love snacking on cashew nuts, coconut chips or coconut flavoured food, and shortbread biscuits, so if you want to bring me a gift that isn’t a book on my wishlist *hints*

I am not a party person, dancing and drawing attention to myself is not my scene. I wish I could be outspoken and unafraid of public speaking, but my stage fright kills me.

Ignorance isn’t bliss. If I learn something new, I google it and get a basic understanding. Sometimes I write prose and poetry. I got sorted into Slytherin by Pottermore. I am very silly at times, meh. Don’t you just love sarcasm?
