Another weird week in Verity-world, with a newly chipped tooth and more problems concentrating the main causes. But it could be so much worse. And as with all the other weeks in this month so far, I’m concentrating on black and other non-white authors for my reading – except when library books are coming up to the end of their loans and aren’t renewable.

Get A Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
sugar, butter, flour, love by Nicole Falls
Take A Hint Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert*
Crystal Clear by Beverly Jenkins
The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett*
A Bad Day for Sunshine by Darynda Jones
The Margot Affair by Sanaë Lemoine*
Private Joys of Nnenna Maloney by Okechukwu Nzelu*
Last Tang Standing by Lauren Ho
The AI Who Loved Me by Alyssa Cole

I’m still not counting, but among my purchases were pre-orders for the new books from Tracey Livesay and Kwana Jackson, and the Beverly Jenkins on the read list and Alyssa Cole’s The AI Who Loved Me
Bonus photo: Some nice calming leaves and sky. Because nature and calming is good right now.
