Hey guys, welcome to another installment of Diversity Spotlight Thursday created by Bookshelves & Paperbacks ! To see the first installment of this series in my blog, click here. I’ve decided to alter a bit the original post. Initially we had to answer 3 questions:
- Diverse book you enjoyed reading
- Diverse book that has been released and you want to read
- Diverse book yet to be released and you want to read
And because I suck in being up to date with upcoming releases, I shall do my diversity posts answering the first 2 questions only 🙂
Here are my picks for this week!
1. A diverse book you have read and enjoyed
This is the first Maya Angelou book I ever read and I found it beautifully written. Set in pre-WWI era, Angelou describes in detail the trials and tribulations of the Negro community in America. Said to be an autobiography of the author herself, this poignant story-telling of a life way back then will strike a chord in you and fall in love with Angelou’s amazing writing.
I was just sad that I picked this up after she died.
2. A diverse book that has already been released but you have not read
I never knew Nigeria had such great literature! I have been eyeing this author for a while now and have seen the great reviews her books have received. One day, I’ll pluck the courage and read this book!
Have you read any of these books and what did you think of them?
