Reading only women authors for 2016–and a good chunk of 2015–has been a dynamic and powerful reading experience. Sometimes imposing a limitation can actually broaden horizons, and I’m sorry to see my year among women draw to a close. So I’ll be entrenching myself among a new class of storytellers next year, reading only the works of Black authors, starting February 1st. But since I lack impulse control, the first book on my list was read during October, to get me in the mood for Halloween.
Here is a list of the books I’ve read and will be posting reviews to in due time. As I read newer (and new to me) works, more will be added. Until then, you can buy them by clicking the links.
