These are the first ten books I want to read in 2016. All of them are either by authors of color or feature protagonists of color. The list features science fiction, magical realism & historical-fiction, my three favorite genres. Some of the books even manage to mix all three :). I am genuinely excited to get my reading year started! #blkgirlsread
