  So it's that time of the month again and I'm back with a new edition of Wishlist Wednesday. If you haven't seen my previous one, you can check it out here. So this month's edition is the AWS edition. AWS basically means African Writers Series, which is a series of books by African writers that has been published by Heinemann since 1962. There are about 200+ books in this series that I know of. The first book in the series I read was The Concubine by Elechi Amadi, about two years ago and I loved every bit of it. I immediately began searching for other AWS books and my search is still ongoing because it's quite a bulky series. I currently own five books out of the lot and one of my major goals is to own or at least read all the books- crazy right? Lol I know. So below are a few of the books I want from the series (obviously I want all, but I've gotta break the list down)
