Share some of your favorite books written by POC authors.




Alyssa Cole jumps out before me even starting, mostly cos I recently read one of hers :D She writes great romances, I love that they are set elsewhere too. We so need that. Not the same old same old




And Nalini Singh, omg, she is the reason I can still read PNR. She is a romance GODDESS




I have a stormy relationship with NK Jemisin, I adore her books, I hate her books. The middle ground is hard to find. But her first book, Hundred thousand Kingdoms, damn, so good.




Jenny Han, I mean come on, PS, I still love you, is adorbs




Jeannie Lin, awwww, I mean long ago China, damn, I need to get back to those




There are more, but like always, I only remember by looking at good old goodreads, how else could I remember which books I liked ;) It also feels like I have written this post before and mentioned the same people, hmm. Well, to be mentioned I have to have liked at least two books, so there are others I want to mention, I just need to hurry up and read more books.

  1. Ohh I love this topic. I haven't read any books by Alyssa Cole, I think I should remedy that.

    I also read NK Jemisin's Inheritance book 1, and enjoyed it for the most part. Looking forward to continuing on with that series.

  2. I still have to write my post but Elizabeth Acevedo has been a hit for me so far. Brandy Colbert is another - both YA though.

    And I discovered a few new authors last year.
