Hey everyone! Well, this week has been one heck of one but we are in a new month! It feels like time is flying by but also not in some cases…it’s really weird! It also got really hot and that feels sudden…or is that just my heat intolerant self?!

Seriously, is it just me here?!

Annnnnnyway, with a new month comes new books and its coming for all our bank accounts & library holds (though it feels a little lighter than the last few months…or that could just be me)! I compiled a list about it. Like to hear it? Here it go (if you know the reference, you know the reference & we can be friends, lol)!

Truly (but like, this is pretty much every month so I do know better)

Thanks to whatever energy has decided to descend my life into chaos (yes…I’m, in part, alluding to my bookstagram IG getting hacked and the other parts are just part of being human and ish going left), I am behind on my ARC TBR so I haven’t gotten to start my July ARCs yet but I’m literally planning to start this weekend!

Like the level of sad I am over this…

Did I miss any books coming out by POC authors this month (I’m not perfect folx, my homegirl @raethereviewer had a few I didn’t have so go check out her page & follow her!)? Are there any books that you are excited for this month? Let me know in the comments or on social media on Instagram @crystalyogi22 (since my bookstagram got hacked & I’m emailing Instagram every free moment I think of it to regain access to it, I’m seriously fighting for my life here y’all. Please follow my OG account and if anyone has some helpful tips or knows someone who works for IG, please hit me up), 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’ve gotten to sit on the beach to relax and read! Yet again, thank you so much for being here and hope you continue to be! As usual, I’m sending you tons of bookish love and wish you happy reading!

I’m reader who has a fierce love for books written by authors of color & belief in the importance of supporting them! My mission is to amplify their voices and work so this generation and all the others after them will have literature that will reflect them.
