Top Ten Tuesday: Upcoming Releases From African-American Authors That I Can't Wait To Read


Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Books that Give Off Summer Vibes (submitted by Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte), but I'm doing something completely different.  Instead I'm featuring upcoming releases from African-American authors that I can't wait to read.  Given everything that's been going on around the world and in our own backyards, I thought I could try to spread some positivity - it's the least I can do to be a good ally to try to amplify voices that should be heard.  Here we go, in alphabetical order by title:



The Conductors by Nicole Glover - Release date: April 13th, 2021


Dear Justyce (Dear Martin #2) by Nic Stone - Release date: September 29th, 2020


The Gilded Ones (Deathless #1) by Namina Forna - Release date: February 9th, 2021


Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson - Release date: September 15th, 2020


Legendborn (Legendborn #1) by Tracy Deonn - Release date: September 15th, 2020


Ring Shout by P. Djeli Clark - Release date: October 13th, 2020


Trouble the Saints by Alaya Dawn Johnson - Release date: July 21st, 2020


The Voting Booth by Brandy Colbert - Release date: July 7th, 2020


The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson - Release date: July 21st, 2020

  6. Great topic! I have a number of these on my TBR list. It makes me happy to see brown faces on book covers since I want my daughter (who's adopted and bi-racial) to see herself reflected in them.

    Happy TTT!

  7. Love your twist on TTT this week! Oh my gosh, I think all of these are already on my TBR? Except The Conductors, but psh, it's there now, even though 2021 still feels so far away. I think I'm looking forward to Legendborn, Ring Shout, and The Year of the Witching the most! There's so many fantastic releases coming up this year.
