Two for Tuesday: Books by WoC

Week 2: Two books written by women of color

The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo

I can’t go too long without making a plug for my bookstagram. The photo above was taken by yours truly. I read The Poet X at the beginning of this year and I absolutely loved it. As a poet myself, this book spoke to me.

This Side of Home by Renee Watson

YA Books About Black Girls — 8 YA Books About Black Girls ...

I read This Side of Home a few summers ago and it’s a book that has always stuck with me. I think about the twins quite often and I really want to read another book by Renee Watson. Her writing style is honestly beautiful.

Have you read either of these books?

What are your thoughts?

What are some books by women of color that you’d recommend?

Let me know in the comments, let’s chat!
