Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Last week, I talked about my favorite Black romance books and honestly, that was so much fun. Keeping with the same theme, I wanted to give a shout-out to some of my favorite Black authors too. I feel like this is going to be a slightly long list so I won’t talk much more in this intro. 😛
BookishlyRebecca is now the host of the “My Favorite” meme, a weekly meme posted on Wednesday. Originally started by Maureen’s Books, she agreed to let me take over.
As Maureen described it, “In this meme, we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it. The world can be a dark place and it’s to share something positive. Each week I will post a new My Favorite.. post about one subject and I’ll tell you all about it. And the best part? Everyone is welcome to join. The only thing you’ll have to do is sign up on my weekly post, link back to this post, and visit others.”
In talking about my favorite Black author, there is no way I couldn’t include Talia Hibbert. Since the beginning of the year, I’ve truly fallen in love with Talia Hibbert’s writing, her characters and almost all of her books. I honestly don’t know what I did before I read her books. She’s my romance queen and if you haven’t read anything by her before, then you need to.
Obviously, she’s not my only favorite Black author so I wanted to give a shout-out to a few others. I obviously have my main-stays which are Alexa Martin, Kennedy Ryan, Katrina Jackson and Christina C. Jones. I also wanted to feature some others such as J. Nichole, Jack Harbon, Ava Freeman, Alyssa Cole and Rebekah Weatherspoon. Tbh I still have a ton of Black authors I have yet to read from so maybe I’ll do an updated list in the future. Either way if you’re looking for more Black romance authors, I’d give these authors a go.
