Addy The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas was removed because this is an adult literary list, not young adult literary list.


message 2: by Addy (new)

Addy Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay was removed because this is not a list for non-fiction. Literary fiction ONLY please. Thanks!


message 3: by Addy (new)

Addy A Thin Line Between Love and Lust: A Poly Love Story by C.E. Long has been removed because it's self published and of the hoodlit/streetlit/erotica genre. Please only add middle/high brow novels, short stories, and poetry by the publishing industry (mainstream or indie) to the list. Nothing wrong with the self publish hoodlit books if this is your thing, but this is NOT the list for them. Please place them on the appropriate list.

Removed. Sorry, I couldn't confirm whether the author was black/African-Americans so I placed it on thinking he may black/Africans. Thanks for alerting me.
