For Black History Month this year, we’re going to take a look at some fantastic novels by women of color. We’re focusing on books published in the past few years, and this is a mere sampling… but there’s something here for practically every reading taste.
Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid: interpersonal, complex, pageturner
Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams: raw, honest, grim but hopeful
My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite: cheeky, inventive, suspenseful
Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson: lyrical, impressionistic, nuanced
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas: realistic, emotional, relevant
An American Marriage by Tayari Jones: realistic, emotional, relevant
