Hey Y’all! I can’t believe that it is almost April! There are SOOOOOOOO many books coming out this month so be prepared to be a little overwhelmed but hopefully you find books you would want to read! Also, please do double check pub dates because publishing and the parallelogram love to play in our faces and change dates at times after I post these lists!

Like this auntie, be sure to keep a look out for these books & their correct pub dates!

Before you all get to the list, I have a favor to ask. If you utilize my blog posts to post your own pubday list in anyway, shape or form, PLEASE credit me & send people to these posts because I compile these lists over months, stalking author’s & publisher’s/publishing professional’s posts, attend numerous publishing events and search online to get these dates. I would sincerely appreciate that! To practice what I’m asking, One of my favorite sources is an incredible bookstagrammer/publishing professional who posts books by Black Authors is @onyxeditions & she’s a great resource in case you specifically interested in Black Books! Please and Thank Youuu!

Seriously y’all, I would appreciate that!

I’ve been having a great time reading these ARCs and so far, these books have all been amazing! If your budget is tight this month, be sure to hit up your local library and request the titles that you are really interested in, that still supports the authors and you still get to read their work!

Sub out “boy” with “library”…they will be happy to hear from you!

Are there any titles that you are excited about? Are there any by Authors Of Color that I missed for the month? Let me know in the comments or on social media! Come see 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 please subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already because it makes me feel like I nailed my pub month list! Until the next post, I’m sending y’all bookish love and wishing you happy reading!
