13 Must-Read Books by Black Authors

Hey everyone, I'm Brandie Shanae, and I'm excited to share with you the top-rated books I've read by black authors in 2022! I've read several outstanding books by black authors this year, but I've narrowed down my list to the 13 best books, all of which are five-star reads. Although there were initially around 30 books, I decided to trim the list to ensure it's not too overwhelming for you.

Below is a list of 13 highly recommended books by black authors that I believe everyone should read. So without further ado, let's begin!
