I just had to use this gif…I’m lowkey obsessed with Shangela Laqueefa Wadley, lol

Hey Y’all! Can you believe that December is here ALREADY?! *Insert shocked face emoji here* This year has felt like it has both dragged and also sped by…it’s so weird how time does that!

How I look when I think about this year

So this month doesn’t seem like it’s a HUGE pub month which is lightweight a relief because January looks like its going to ruin ALL of our bank accounts. Here are the books that I know are coming out this month:

  • Surviving Home by Katerina Canyon 12/1
  • You Have A Voice by Vera Ahiyya *PB* 12/6
  • Girl Giant And The Jade War by Van Hoang *MG sequel* 12/7
  • The Upper World by Femi Fadugba 12/7
  • Spin Me Right Round by David Valdes 12/7
  • The Righteous by Renee Ahdieh *sequel* 12/7
  • Amor Actually by Zoey Castile, Alexis Daria, Adriana Herrera, Diana Muñoz Stewart, Priscilla Oliveras, Sabrina Sol, and Mia Sosa *Adult Anthology* 12/7
  • Call Us What We Carry by Amanda Gorman *adult* 12/7
  • Penny Candy by Jonathan Norton *adult* 12/7
  • Your Friend, Parker by Parker & Jessica Curry *Early Reader* 12/14
  • Parker Dresses Up by Parker & Jessica Curry *ER* 12/14
  • Energy Never Dies Afro-Optimism and Creativity in Chicago by Ayana Contreras *adult* 12/14
  • She Persisted: Oprah Winfrey by Renee Watson 12/21

  • Sing, Aretha, Sing! by Hanif Abdurraqib *PB* 12/28
  • Stacey’s Extraordinary Words by Stacey Abrams *PB* 12/28
There are still enough books on this list to be a bit concerned for my pockets though

So of these books coming out, I had the privilege of reading the E-ARCs of two:

Surviving Home by Katerina Canyon 12/1 (a short collection of poetry)
Girl Giant And The Jade War by Van Hoang *MG sequel* 12/7 (I talked about this book in my sequels post.)

Reading ARCs always make me feel special

Are there any books that you’re excited about for this month? Is there any books that I left out that are coming out by Authors Of Color this month or if any of these dates have changed?! Let me know if I’m slipping in the comments here or on social media. 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 it’s a pub month that won’t completely kill my pockets! Sending y’all bookish love and wishing you happy reading! Bookish Salutations!
