Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic revolves around hidden gems or underrated books in any genre.
I selected ten underrated fictional works by African-American authors, classics and modern. To learn about perspectives, we must give time to the marginalized as their stories offer fresh air to an often stagnated industry that ignores them. If you find an asterisk (∗) next to the book, I added it to my TBR and anxiously await reading the tale.
Give these books a shot as they are well worth your time, energy, and funds. The better and more open our libraries, the better we become as readers.
