Six for Sunday – Favorite Books by Black Authors

It’s Sunday and time for Six for Sunday! This is a weekly blog feature started by A Little But a Lot. This week’s prompt is my favorite books by Black authors. It was hard to narrow this one down to 6, so many good contenders but here’s my final list.

These are all 5-star reads and surprisingly all reads from 2021. Part of that is just because they’re fresh in my mind but I also have made an effort this year to read more BIPOC authors so I had more to choose from.

  • Kindred by Octavia E. Butler
  • The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo
  • The Black Flamingo by Dean Atta
  • Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé
  • Amari and the Night Brothers by BB Alston
  • Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron

Stay tuned these Six for Sunday prompts during the rest of October which are in celebration of UK Black history month:

  • October 10 – Favorite Black characters
  • October 17 – Books that celebrate Black voices
  • October 24 – Books by Black authors I want to read
  • October 31 – Recommended reads by Black authors
