{Top Ten Tuesday} LGBTQIA Books by Black Authors

Posted June 9, 2020 by Leah in Memes & Features, Top 10 Tuesday / 16 Comments

Happy Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

So today’s theme was books we added to our to-read list but forgot about…but I’m not doing that. Instead, I’m going to boost some LGBTQIA+ novels by Black authors. Black lives matter. Black lives in the LGBTQIA+ community matter.

If there are more books you can add to the list, please let me know in the comments.

The Good Luck Girls by Charlotte Nicole Davis

You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson

Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender

Clap When You Land by Elizabeth Acevedo

Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron

Dread Nation by Justina Ireland

The Stars and the Blackness Between Them by Junauda Petrus

An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon

The Black Flamingo by Dean Atta

Pet by Akwaeke Emezi

All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson

      Alright! 😀 I’ve read a couple of these (All Boys Aren’t Blue and Dread Nation) and am determined to get to the other books listed and more.

      I still have to read Clap When You Land, too. I’ve read Elizabeth’s second book, With the Fire on High; still have to read The Poet X.

      Cinderella Is Dead definitely looks great.

      Let’s all work on reading black authors and more diverse stories. 🙂
