I need another place to collect books to read. I have my goodreads list, but that feels unwieldy to me. I have a section in my bullet journal too, but that gets forgotten. Hillary, of Make America Read Again, has a great spreadsheet for her “Read Harder” book list and I want to do something like that here.

Obviously there is overlap in some of these categories, so if it’s a science fiction novel by a woman of color, it will just go in the first category I come to, or it won’t! I’m not a librarian. Don’t @ me. And I’ll be adding throughout the year to these and updating if I’ve managed to read any on this extensive list.

Books by women

Books by POC


“Classics” I never read


Science Fiction
