This February, in honor of Black History Month, readers are participating in #readingblackout, a movement started by BookTuber Denise D. Cooper that encourages readers to exclusively pick up books by black authors. The Bookish team couldn’t resist joining in, and since we can’t get enough of books written by talented women, we put together a recommendation list featuring 28 books (one for each day of February) written by black women. You’re sure to find a few familiar covers on this list, but we hope you also find some new reads for your TBR pile.
We’d love to hear about the books you’re reading for #readingblackout. Tell us about them in the comments!
Don’t let Alice Walker’s most famous novel remain on your TBR pile. If you have never read this classic, now is the perfect time.
