i was thinkin bout starting a tumblr book club for works of speculative fiction (sci fi, fantasy, afrofuturism, afrosurrealism, magical realism, paranormal, whatever) by women of colour.
whatchy’allthink? i know i aint got that many followers, but maybe if y’all reblogged we could spread this shit around? like cocoa butter?
possible books: any and all things by octavia butler, including her short stories; beloved by toni morrison; who fears death by nnedi okorafor, also akata witch by her; the gilda stories by jewelle gomez; so far from god by ana castillo; the inheritance trilogy by n.k. jemisin; the marie laveau novels by jewell parker rhodes; woman who thought she was a planet by vandana singh; blood colony (or anything) by tananarive due; the new moon’s arms by nalo hopkinson (these are mostly black authors ‘cause that’s who i’m most familiar with)
i’m sure there’s a lot a good shit out there i aint heard of. we could also talk bout movies, graphic novels/comics.
thoughts? we’d basically just have a date where we’re supposed to have read the book, and blog the discussion.
we could call it, “Book club for women whose asses got left by the Mothership.”
Signal boost hard!
I would totally love to join this group!
I might join in on this! Keep me posted!
I’m so in.
This has to happen!
