Black History Month Book Tag

Black History Month Book Tag

In honor of Black History Month, I’m going to do a book tag related to Black History Month. Actually, the book tag is the Black Blogger Book Tag on Rae’s Reads and Reviews and also ZeZee with Books.

I want to tell you about some amazing books related to Black History Month. I know about books. I read just about anything by everyone, except for cookbooks.

Please visit Rae and ZeZee also. They have really wonderful blogs.

Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I am not black but I am an ally. The only interesting thing about my DNA results were the 6% Italian and 2% Sardinian that popped up. Someday I hope to be a Nona but I might be closer to a Strega Nona (Grandma Witch).

My favorite genre is magical realism. I’m going to participate in Book Riot’s Read Harder Book Challenge again this year. Last year, I read many books that were much different from what I usually read.

WHO’S A BLACK AUTHOR YOU LOVE THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT?

Veronica G. Henry

I just finished Bacchanal by Veronica G. Henry. It is Henry’s first novel. I loved it. Henry will be having another novel, The Quarter Storm, published in March.

FAVORITE BOOK ABOUT THE BLACK EXPERIENCE:

Starr Carter is a great character. It’s just my opinion but you can hear and understand Starr. People should listen – like really listen – to each other. I loved The Hate U Give even though it made me incredibly sad at times.

FAVORITE BOOK BY A BLACK AUTHOR:

The Water Dancer is an absolutely beautifully written book.

RECOMMEND A BLACK + QUEER BOOK.

Sorrowland is one of my favorite books. It is very unique.

RECOMMEND A BOOK WITH A BLACK PERSON ON THE COVER.

Notes From a Young Black Chef is a biography by Kwame Onwuachi. It was interesting to read about his experiences.

RECOMMEND A BOOK BY A BLACK AUTHOR THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY.

Amari and The Night Brothers is a spectacular book. Appropriate for ages 8-12.

TALK ABOUT A BOOK BY A BLACK AUTHOR THAT’S COMING IN 2022

Moon Witch Spider King is the second book in the The Dark Star Trilogy by Marlon James. The series is fantasy/science fiction. It should be published around Feb. 15, 2022.
