Here is a selection of ten books we enjoy reading in 2021 and recommend:

Between Wild and Free by Caroline Numuhire. Set in present-day Kigali, this novel explores a range of topics related to the social pressures that exist in Rwanda today. From household and wedding affairs to office politics and cultural norms, Numuhire doesn't disappoint.

Numuhire's book is nuanced and it achieves great heights in depicting the limits of culture and the boundless human nature.
