Books Written by Marginalized Authors Part 1 (April)

Good afternoon, everyone! We hope you’ve had a great week and have been able to read a lot of books. The idea for this new blog series resulted from our discovery that bookstagram is reactive. We have noticed that every time that a tragedy occurs for a marginalized group, bookstagrammers will tell their followers to read books by authors of that specific group. Our goal, instead, is to highlight books that are written by authors from all marginalized groups. All of the recommended books are definitely important reads, and we hope you love them as much as we do!

These recommendations are not necessarily ones we’ve read in the month of March, but rather, some of our favorites that we’ve read in the past. Once April ends, we’ll highlight the books we’ve read in April as well as some others that we weren’t able to fit on this month’s list in May.


Books included above:

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Legendborn by Tracy Deonn
The Hate U Give and Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas
The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson
The Library of the Unwritten by A.J. Hackwith
Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert
The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon
Blood Heir by Amélie Wen Zhao
The Space Between Worlds by Micaiah Johnson
Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi
The Barren Grounds by David Alexander Robertson

Have you read any of these books? If so, did you enjoy reading the book(s)? What are some of your favorite books that are written by marginalized authors? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

We’re a sister duo and a best friend from Virginia, USA who absolutely love books! We all met while Danielle and Skyler were in college. Danielle and Skyler are teachers and Rachael is aspiring to be a librarian. As well as having a bookstagram, we co-run a blog together where we review books, post unboxings of other subscription boxes, and offer reading resources for parents and educators.
