Book Review: Memoirs of a Lagos Wedding Planner by Tolulope Popoola

Flash fiction is not something I would ordinarily read but the title of this collection caught my attention and I decided to give it a try.

This is a collection of ten very short but mostly captivating stories told from the perspective of a “Lagos Wedding Planner”. The stories were well written, entertaining, sometimes shocking and really interesting. They were all so relatable with characters you would love and hate at the same time. I was surprised when I discovered I had already gotten to the end of the collection but I still wanted more. Flash fiction is not usually easy to pull off but I really liked the way the author weaved each story neatly and didn’t leave anything hanging. This was a pleasant surprise.

I highly recommend this collection especially if you are in a reading slump or you just need something quick to read. I’m off to read two other collections by this author.
