Last month Racquel recommended I read Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell because she said this book is great for fans of Lola and the Boy Next Door. I could not agree more! Chloe is a quirky fashionista just like Lola, and I think they would be great friends. I also loved the emphasis on friendship in Welcome, Caller. Chloe is a former popular girl who makes her friends mad and becomes the school’s biggest outcast. She ends up latching on to a group of really unique people who run the school’s radio station. She also kind of falls for a certain boy in this group. But the story is about so much more than the romance. It’s about change, growing, struggling to find yourself, and friendship. I loved that the book was sweet and funny, but at the same time it tackled some heavier issues. I’ll be posting my review soon!
So! February was a success, and I’m excited for what Racquel and I are going to be reading this month!
Racquel has decided that I’m in need of expanding my love of historical romances, which I am super excited about! I love historical romances, but there are MILLIONS of them, and I have no idea where to even start! Luckily, historical romance is one of Racquel’s favorite genres, so she has a list of great ones for me. She said that What I Did for a Duke is “really character driven and the dialogue is AWESOME.” I’m so excited!
I suggested Racquel try Degrees of Wrong by Anna Scarlet because she enjoys adult romance and also enjoys sci-fi/dystopia. This book combines both! The book takes place on an undersea warship, and the heroine is a doctor who has to find a cure for a deadly virus. There’s suspense, romance, and a lot of snark. I adore this book, and am so excited to be introducing Racquel to a book she’s never heard of before! This should be fun for both of us. :)
Ok, so that’s our month! Have you read either of these books? Will we like them?
