Throwback Thursday - Revisiting Books I've Read

The following nine novels are ones that I've read in recent years and found to be thought provoking reads. Many of the following novels fall into the historical fiction genre... Twain's novel is an American classic. Butler's novel features time travel. And Beatty's novel features satire.

1. Kindred by Octavia E. Butler

2. Yellow Crocus by Laila Ibrahim

3. The Girls in the Stilt House by Kelly Mustian

4. The Last Runaway by Tracy Chevalier

5. Jubilee by Margaret Walker

6. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

7. Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez

8. The Sellout by Paul Beatty

9. The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

Have you read any of the above novels? Did you enjoy reading them?


  1. I've read, Kindred, The Last Runaway, Huckleberry Finn and Underground Railroad, some great books.

    1. Yes, very great reads indeed! We seem to have similar tastes/views in the books we read.

    2. Yes, we do seem to like the same kind of literature. Always nice to meet someone like that.
