Favourite Books by Black Authors

This year I’ve really made an effort to diversify my reading shelves. Throughout the last few years my reading has been pretty white author dominated, and it’s time to change that.

So, I’ve got some authors of colour I’ve loved, and maybe you will really enjoy their books too. I’ve collected a list across several genres and reading tastes. There should for sure be something here you’ll enjoy.

My name in books TBR

This is a challenge I’ve seen around the Internet a couple of times. The basis of it is pretty simple – just name out some books that start with each of the letters of your name. Sounds simple right?

No. For this, I’m going to list a book that I haven’t read, and it’s then my TBR of sorts. Once I’ve read it, I can come back here and talk about it. All of these books are already on my physical TBR shelf or on my Kindle, so hopefully this will be what spurs me on to actually tick them off.

Books on my 2020 Wishlist

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl

I’m not always a material girl, and I don’t exactly share my wishlist around everywhere (very often, anyway.) Christmas is different though, and I feel like even this year is more special.

With the year we’ve just had, I feel like a cheeky books as gifts request isn’t pushing the boat out too far. If any of these books appear under the tree Christmas morning, I’ll be one happy bunny.

Did I Read my Summer TBR?

At the start of the summer this year, I put together a list of 10 books I was so excited to get to. With three months to get through them, let’s see if I actually did it.

I wanted to set myself a TBR for a little longer than a month. I thought this would give me enough time to read all the books on the list, while still having the chance to mood read if I had my eye on something else.
