This Year’s Reading Adventure: Celebrating Black Authors

What books do you want to read?
Bloganuary Day 27

For my last Saturday post of Bloganuary, it’s all about our upcoming reading lists. This year, I’m excited to get into books by Black authors, uncovering stories and experiences that promise to be as enriching as they are entertaining. Let’s check out my top picks!

“Someday Maybe” by Onyi Nwabineli: Can’t wait to get lost in this one. I’m expecting a journey filled with deep, relatable emotions and experiences that’ll stick with me long after the last page.

“In Every Mirror She’s Black” by Lola Akinmade Akerstrom: I’m all set for this exploration of Black women’s lives across different backgrounds. Anticipating a read that’s as eye-opening as it is engaging.

“Rootless” by Krystle Zara Appiah: The concept of this book immediately grabbed my attention. I’m ready to be taken on a heartfelt ride exploring identity and belonging.

“On the Come Up” by Angie Thomas: After the phenomenal “The Hate U Give,” I’m thrilled to jump into another of Thomas’s stories. Her writing isn’t just absorbing; it’s real and impactful.

Consuming books by Black authors isn’t just about reading; it’s about immersing myself in a variety of perspectives and supporting the voices that need to be heard.

What’s on your reading list? I’m always up for good recommendations, so drop them in the comments!
