Goodreads Synopsis:


In What A Time To Be Alone, The Slumflower will be your life guru, confidante and best friend. She'll show you that being alone is not just okay: it's just about the best freaking thing that's ever happened to you. As she says, 'You're bad as hell and you were made with intention.' It's about time you realised.

Peppered with insightful Igbo proverbs from Chidera's Nigerian mother and full of her own original artwork, What A Time To Be Alone will help you navigate the modern world. We can all decide our own fates and Chidera shows us how, using a three-part approach filled with sass, wisdom and charm.

Learn how to celebrate YOU - decide your self-worth, take time to heal and empower yourself in this messy world.

Don't worry about THEM - avoid other people's demons and realize that everyone is protecting themselves from something - no matter how aggressive their method.

Feel the togetherness in US - sustain and grow healthy relationships and avoid toxicity in your friendships.



Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I personally don't know who Slumflower is, however, I do think that this book will have an important message for everyone.

Thank you so much to Jonathan Ball Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book. Just a quick disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I think that each section has something important to it. I also believe that this book is the perfect gift for someone. This book has a message in each section that is very important. However, I did feel as if there was a lot of repetition that got annoying. It was as if certain topics were just given a different name whilst the content was still the same. Despite that, this book has a very powerful message that everybody could be reminded of sometimes. 

Yours in Reading,
Melleny
