Spring is the time when a bunch of new African novels come out and this year is no exception. We decided to put together a booklist of all the African novels coming out from April to June that you can preorder now!

This booklist contains 17 anticipated novels ranging from speculative fiction, young adult fiction, children’s fiction, romance to coming-of-age stories. Some of our favorites from the list are Zito Madu’s debut The Minotaur at Calle Lanza, Aiwanose Odafen’s friendship-centered narrative We Were Girls Once, Chigozie Obioma’s The Road to the Country, and Chibundo Onuzo’s children’s book Mayowa and the Sea of Words, among others.

We personally cannot wait for these scintillating novels to come out and we hope you feel the same way! Preorder links are included below. Enjoy and we hope you preorder ASAP!
