The Office of Historical Corrections is a collection of short stories. All seven stories were engaging. The collection has 6 short stories and 1 novella. Although each one has its own distinctive narrative, they do examine similar themes but they do so through different, and at times opposing perspectives. Evans navigates the experiences of Black people in white America.
The Conductors is a debut novel by Nicole Glover. The premise of the book is original, Glover creates a world right where Black People possess and master magic. Set right after the end of slavery during the Reconstruction Era, Glover combines history and fantasy.
I enjoyed the book immensely. It dealt with very strong themes of misogyny, religious fervor, feminism, and patriarchy. I enjoy reading a black-dominated YA fantasy novel.
I’m doing my first Top 10 Tuesday post. I’m trying to get into taking part in the weekly challenge. This week is a Valentine’s Day theme, so we can choose whatever topic we want that relates to Valentine’s Day in any way, so I decided to share ten books about Black Love.
