L.C. Perry | 120 comments I agree with Elyse! I'm currently reading her The Fifth Season novel right now.

The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth, #1) by N.K. Jemisin

〰️Beth〰️ (x1f4a0bethx1f4a0) Hi Senna,

Given time I could probably think of more NA contemporary with POC as one of the main characters. This is the list so far. It includes romance, mystery and historical fiction. I have not read all of these, but many are on my TBR.

Let me know if you have questions. I hope this helps your search and finds you an enjoyable new book(s) and new author(s).
💖📚 Happy Reading📚💖
