In a world where new books by BIPOC writers are released every day, choosing your next read can be overwhelming. Allow us to give you some thicc plot suggestions ;) Curated and written by story-obsessed Porshèa, you’ll find a bevy of fantasy, non-fiction, and some romance recommendations in Middle Grade, Young Adult, and Adult categories. Word to the wise: Porshèa’s preferences are fast-paced, adventurous, and somewhat dark tales with a lot of love for fairytale retellings. We try to place content warnings where appropriate, but please reach out if you read a recommendation that needs warnings that may have been overlooked by the team.
