I was not expecting everything that this book turned out to be. This book kept popping up on my IG feed and I'm so glad i actually decided to pick up. Wahala was such a page turner. I was invested from the very beginning. Nikki May does an amazing job of creating full-bodied storylines for each character while flawlessly weaving them all together.
My favorite character throughout the story was Ronke. I was rooting for her and Kayode the entire time. Boo and Simi had me STRESSED. I had so many, “Girl, WTF are you doing?” moments with them. I was really interested in how Boo's story was going to work out. I really liked Didier and I loved his relationship with their daughter. I kind of understood how Boo was feeling. In marriage and in motherhood you sacrifice a lot but sometimes we sacrifice things that we don't necessarily have to. We put a certain pressure on ourselves that can make us feel like we can't when in all reality we can if we allow ourselves the freedom. Her feelings regarding her relationship with her husband and even her relationship with motherhood are prime examples of why honest open communication is important in long term relationships.
I think Didier would've been understanding if she came to him with her issues. Really, I feel the same about Simi and Martin. They were on different pages as far as the things that they wanted and a conversation about their individual desires and their desires as a couple would've gone a long way.
Anyway, I don’t want to give too much away but I have to talk about Isobel. She was so deliciously evil in this story. I love a good bad guy and she is definitely a good one in her own way. The best bad guys make you love to hate them. This girl is outright manipulative and sneaky and certainly makes you hate her along the way.
I know my details are a little vague but I really don’t want to give away the whole thing. You should definitely pick up this book and give it a read. It is full of drama, messy friendships, and will having you staying up all night to see how it ends. In other words... READ THIS BOOK. You're guaranteed to be entertained.
