about Uwadis owner

Hi there.


A blog mainly about two of the best things in life. Can you guess?

BOOKS AND FOOD… (Drumroll pls)

The feeling gotten from eating good food and reading a good book is out of this world. You agree with me, right? (pls say you do).

Here you can find book reviews, recommendations, author and blogger interviews, recipes and more. If you’re a book lover, you’re in the right place.

Take a look around. Here are some of my most popular posts.

✨ Looking to discover new authors, here’s a post about diverse anthologies you should read in 2019

✨ A little bit curious about what goes into a book cover design, I interviewed book cover designer, Thy Bui about it all.

✨ Looking for your next read, check out my book reviews.

✨ If you’re looking for more diverse books to read, check out my list of 17 books by Nigerian authors released/coming out this year. From fantasy to contemporary to non-fiction, its all in here.

Go on an adventure




Hi there. I’m Etinosa. A 21-year-old University student who spends way too much time reading books and watching anime. When I’m not reading or watching anime, you can find me listening to music, daydreaming or scribbling away.

I created this blog because I didn’t have many friends in real life that I could talk about books with. I was also really stressed out, unmotivated and having an identity crisis. I needed an outlet so when I found out about the online book community I was like, Sign me up!

I love a lot of things but the major ones are books and food. Food to me is more than something we eat for nutrition. Food brings people together, it can cheer you up or make you sad, you can create a lot of great memories centered about food. For example, one of my clearest childhood memories is sitting down with my family on Saturdays, eating Akara (beans cake) fried with palm oil and pap (maize porridge).

I looked for a way to merge both books and food on my blog (I’m still working on it) and voila, Uwadis was born. I’m still stressed out but it’s way better because now I have something to pour my love and efforts into. I hope you enjoy my little corner of the internet and that it makes your day a little brighter.

Life is full of ups and downs….so why don’t you sit back and relax as I entertain you with posts about great books and good food.

You can find me on Twitter and Instagram. If you want to chat, do business with me (review requests, e.t.c), or just send me some feedback, you can contact me here.

Another way to connect with me is to sign up for my newsletter. This gives me an excuse to drop into your email twice a month to talk about all things books.
