Nevermind that his book is upside down…but this is me realizing how many books are coming out this month that I’m excited about!

Hey Everyone…Goodness, I really need to stop being so corny with these Book release month titles but I don’t know if I could really help myself! Maybe In the new year, it will end but I make ZERO promises (but at least I didn’t use a turkey…which makes sense since I’m vegan, lol! I did use a cornucopia in the featured image though!)

It is what it will be, lol!

Well y’all, a new month is here and that means more books are coming out! I know it’s rare for me to do two posts in one week but I didn’t want to post after the first months pub date, that just wouldn’t be nice or fair! So without further ado, here are the books (that I know of) that are coming out this month by Authors of Color!

Whoooooooooooooa…so many books!

I have had the privilege of reading three of these books as ARCs and they are:

  • Wild Tongues Can’t Be Tamed Essays edited by Saraciea J. Fennel (this is a non-fiction collection of stories and they are wonderful.)
  • Black Was The Ink by Michelle Coles (this book was brilliantly written and I think it should be added to any history curriculum about the Reconstruction Era!)
  • The Donut Trap by Julie Tieu *Adult* 11/9 (a super funny & lighthearted read!)

Trust me when I say that I attempted to get some of the books in the list as ARCs but the publishing Gods did not grant favor upon me when it came to those requests…but it’s all good because I’ve got a bunch of ARCS for 2022 releases and I’m ready to be super busy with those *Cue Airhorns* (but our bank accounts will be in trouble, doe)!

I feel like this when I think of all the ARCs I’m going to read for books coming out in the new year, lol!

Are there any books by Authors of Color that I missed? Let me know and I will add them to the list! Are there any books that you are super excited about? Share them in the comments or on social media…let’s geek out together (I do love a good geekout)! You can find & follow me on Instagram @bookishgirlmagic, Twitter @bookishgrlmagic and Clubhouse @bookishgrlmagic where you can find me mostly in book centered clubs/rooms (primarily on Tuesdays and Fridays). Also subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already because it makes me feel like I won $100 gift cards from my favorite Indie Bookstores! Have a great day wherever you are!
