#SixforSunday is… it’s really just that. You choose 6 books (normally) that you’d choose to fit whatever the prompt is that week. This meme is hosted by A Little but a Lot and you can follow the link to find the prompts for October to December.

This week’s topic:

Recommended Reads by Black Authors


Anything by Maya Angelou! I still remember her poem Phenomenal Woman and what it made me feel inside to read it. Her work is raw, brilliant and so inspiring.


Everything by Angie Thomas! She is a must read author for me.


I just finished this arc and I absolutely love the main character Simidele. She just has so much heart and I loved the story-telling. I look forward to reading more from this author!


I am a fan of this book because it was everything I wanted in an urban fantasy young adult book! I can’t wait for the sequel.


There are some heavy topics in this book but the murder mystery story is told so well. I look forward to reading more from this author!


This is a book that began slow but ended wildly! It’s one of the stories that stuck in my mind even though I read it last year. I look forward to reading more from these authors.
