PoC Speculative Fiction -- More Reading What I Like

2014 PoC Speculative Fiction Reading ChallengeI found another Reading Challenge which is more a chance to organize my reading into lists -- DuskyLiterati's 2014 PoC Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge. She defines Speculative Fiction as science fiction, fantasy and horror, which is pretty much what I use my SF tag for. And she defines PoC as Asians, African-American, Africans, Native Americans, and Latinos. I can think of a few other categories I'd include (Zadie Smith, for example, doesn't count as PoC by that definition, although I don't think her works count as SF either), but I'm not about quibbling.

Reviews can be posted here.

It started back in January, so here's what I've read so far that qualifies:
  • The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, N.K. Jemisin
