Top Ten Tuesday: New and Recent Releases From African-American Authors On My TBR


Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Books On My Summer TBR, but I'm doing something completely different again this week.  Instead I'm featuring some of New and Recent Releases From African-American Authors On My TBR.  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:




















Have you read any of these?  Are any of these on you TBR?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!  Stay healthy and safe everyone.

  3. Smash It! by Francina Simone is one that I am really looking forward to. She makes some really fantastic bookish content on YouTube as well. I've heard great things about Rage of Dragons, it's one I hope to get to soon.
    I really enjoyed Children of Virtue and Vengeance, I hope you do too.

  5. I'm currently almost halfway through Deathless Divide (and it's a chonky book) and I'm maybe enjoying it even more than the first one. Also I didn't realise there was a Shuri novel?! I'm gonna have to keep my eyes open for that!

  10. River of Royal Blood and Songs of Wraith and Ruin are both on my TBR. I was kind of sad that CVV fell into middle book syndrome territory for me because I loved CBB so much but I'm hoping the third book will be better!

  20. This list is incredibly helpful - as you know I created one that was non-fiction, because that is what I read. I want to expand my list to include as many genres as possible, and I will be reading quite a few of these. Thanks again!
