Black History Month 2017 on Incessant Scribble

Today's the last day of February! Wherever you are I hope you found some way to celebrate our rich black history. On the 1st of February I announced that I would devote this month to reviewing novels by African Americans. It's a blog tradition that I hope to continue well into the future. I had hoped that I could review four novels but I was only able to review three. This has been a super, super busy month for me and while I couldn't reach my goal I'm super proud of my three book reviews. My fourth book pick is Ruby by Cynthia Bond. I'm almost at one-third of the book. I'll finish it up and post my review on the 7th of March. You'll find the links to all my Black History Month 2017 book picks below. ENJOY!

Book #1: The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis
Book #2: The Mothers by Brit Bennett
Book #3: Here Comes the Sun by Nicole Dennis-Benn


  1. Well done Osondu! Did you intentionally only read books by women writers?

    1. Thank youuu! Yes I did! I kept wanting to include James Baldwin but I couldn't get into his short story collection so I stayed with just reviewing 4 women this month. :)
