Black History Month in literature (TBR)

I don’t usually post monthly ‘to-be-read’ piles, but I want to make an exception for this month, as it is Black History Month (BHM). While I’ve never celebrated this themed month before — I was never aware that it existed in the United States — I figured that this year was a great time to start doing it through one of my favorite mediums, literature.

This month I’m going to be reading books written by black writers. Given that I’ve got a lot of books sitting on my to-be-read shelf on Goodreads by African or African-American authors, I think this is the best time to get to them. However, just as a disclaimer, I’d like to say that I do plan on reading African and African-American authors in the other months of the year instead of just in February.

Holiday BookTubeAThon 2016 (TBR)

The time has finally come! Fuzzy socks, fingerless-gloves and warm pajamas are going to be my best friends from 29th December to 31st December during the Holiday BookTubeAThon 2016.
