A Reading List (Hastily compiled, somewhat diverse)

I see many posts on Twitter asking for diverse reads. Nobody asked me, but I thought I would make a list of a few of my favourite books from and about marginalised voices and experiences. Mostly fiction, a little non-fiction thrown in. I’ll link either to goodreads or my own reviews.

  1. I love the sun is also a star and I really want to read Chimamanda Ngozi Achidie, because my Mum likes her books. She is not invisible and Lies We Tell ourselves are also superb. Thanks for the list!
