Hello, readers and writers!
I could spend all day talking about what’s next on my to-be-read list, but I don’t want to expose all of you to the extent of my obsessions nor the overwhelming length of that list, so I just chose two novels that came out recently that are on my list to read next!
As some of you may know from last week’s post, I’m currently reading Jane Eyre. I thought I’d be finished with the novel by now, but I’m only another fifty pages in, so hopefully I can have it done next week! I have more time to dedicate to reading now that I’ve finished the first act of my WIP.
So instead of giving you guys a rushed, half-assed review, I’m going to gush about some of the reads on my TBR list! There are also some debut authors I’ve become online friends with who are showing a lot of promise in their novels, so I’m excited to read those as well!
The absolute next novel I’m starting after finishing Jane Eyre is Nothing Personal by Karina Halle.
She’s one of my favorite authors, and I love 90% of her work. There has been a time or two where I didn’t connect with the heroine, but there have been many other instances in which I felt them so much it actually moved me to read their stories. So, no pressure, Karina, I’m just super excited and have high expectations for this novel!
I love romance tropes that involve:
- single dads
- and humor
Karina has promised all of these things in her synopsis, and I suggest giving it a go and then checking back with me in a few weeks to share in my review. Get your hands on a copy here.
Next is Luna and the Lie by Mariana Zapata.
She’s another favorite of mine as I’ve read almost every single one of her novels. Her characters can be rough around the edges as well as sweet and gentle on the inside. I absolutely love the way she tells her character’s stories, and I’m so excited to read it soon!
Some things to be excited about with this novel:
- #1 Overall Amazon Kindle Best Seller (after only being published a little more than a month ago)
- strong family units (it’s one of her specialties)
- and mysterious secrets
Mariana is all about the slow burn relationship, and I love experiencing the character’s lives in that way. We fall in love with more than their appearance or the “amazing sex” they have throughout the novel. Their relationships are always more, stronger, and I love it! Grab a copy here.
Thank you for reading!
