Gemtastic Series: The Binti Trilogy

Hello Gemmies! Now that more of us are staying home, I thought it would be fun to feature completed series that you can binge right now in their chronological reading order. This weeks feature is the gemtastic Binti Trilogy by Nnedi Okorafor.

OMG, where to start! This series is filled with so many emotions, I laughed, I cried, and shouted in frustration! At its heart the series follows the coming of age story of Binti, a gifted Himba woman trying to find her place in a world filled with bigotry and sexism. The world building is gorgeous too; set partly in Africa and partly in space, it has a distinct flavor and feel that is unique to Nnedi Okorafor. There is an abundant amount of aliens, action, intrigue, and emotions to satisfy all readers. To put it shortly this is African Futurism at its best!

Here is the chronological reading order to help get you started.

  • Binti

  • Home

  • The Night Masquerade

All of these gems are published by TOR books and are available for purchase from all major booksellers. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I did. If you have already read this series let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
