Favourite YA Novels by Black Authors (Top Ten Tuesday)

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. The topic for this week is ‘Books on my Summer 2020 TBR’.

This week Top Ten Tuesday turns 10! I have been taking part in this meme for a few years now and want to congratulate the creators for keeping it going for this long. This week’s topic is to either do a previous TTT topic or get creative! For me I am going to be sharing my favourite YA Novels written by Black authors. With all that is going on with the Black Lives Matter movement, I wanted to share these books in the hope that you all go and look into them and hopefully buy them.

What are your favourite books by Black authors?

With everything that is going on in the world right now I couldn’t not talk about it. I am in huge support of the Black Lives Matter movement and am devastated with what I am seeing and hearing on a day to day basis. I couldn’t be silent about it and I urge you if you haven’t already to please donate, sign petitions and get involved. Please don’t stay silent. This link will take you to a list of where you can get information on signing petitions, donating and how you can help.

  1. Amazing list! I have read and loved many of these. I recently finished Dear Martin- which I thought was an incredibly powerful read, and I adored On the Come Up! ❤️
