Today’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is the Top Ten 2016 releases I wanted to read but didn’t get to.
Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi (Ghana)
- Hag-seed by Margaret Atwood
- The Wonder by Emma Donoghue (Ireland)
- Today will be Different by Maria Semple
- Born a Crime by Trevor Noah (South Africa)
- Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson
- News of the World by Paulette Jiles
- Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeline Thien (China)
- Cross Talk by Connie Willis
- Mr. Splitfoot by Samantha Hunt
- The Wangs Vs. The World by Jade Chang
Since I’m also going for diversity, I’ve noted where these books are set in other countries. There’s also racial diversity, and Jacqueline Woodson and Jade Chang are writers of color as are Thien, Gyasi, and Noah. That’s already more diversity than I got in most of my books last year.
Have you read any of these books? Which ones do you recommend?
