Ever felt like you need some­one to sit you down and give you a pep talk to su­per charge your life into ac­tion? Read­ing through Thrills and Chills: Trudg­ing Through Life by a 21-yearold Boni­face Sagini is like that. It is a clev­erly writ­ten book, yet so easy to un­der­stand.

There is noth­ing bet­ter than curl­ing up on a couch on a chilly day con­cen­trat­ing with an in­spi­ra­tion book. Thrills and Chills is not your or­di­nary mo­ti­va­tional book. The book re­minds about how beau­ti­ful life is with­out for­get­ing des­o­la­tion that comes with it. While ad­dress­ing the themes of pain, hope, grit, suc­cess, mas­cu­line sto­icism and sui­cide, it has the un­canny abil­ity to raise your en­ergy level.

In the words of the au­thor, life is re­ally

‘trudg­ing through the pos­si­bil­i­ties of pain and bliss of hurt and mirth of thrills and chills.’

Ed­i­tor’s note: To cel­e­brate the love of the writ­ten word, ev­ery week we shall pub­lish a selfie or photo of a reader hold­ing the book he or she is cur­rently read­ing. Read­ers are asked to sub­mit the photo with a brief de­scrip­tion of the book (200 words) to sat­na­­tion­ Please also tell us where you are based and what you do.
