I’m sure it’s summer somewhere in the USA right now, but in my neck of the woods it’s still 50-60° F everyday. I’m not complaining at all, mind you. I hate the heat, and usually it’s in the 90s-100s by now so I’m loving this. I’m not exactly in the summer mindset right now, though! I love reading light, contemporary reads this time of year along with some romantic suspense and mystery/thriller, and I’ve got a lot on my TBR right now that I’m excited for. I’m looking forward to browsing your lists this week!
The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager
I just read his upcoming release (Lock Every Door), and it was amazing! I loved the creepy, atmospheric setting and the wacko characters. This one takes place at a summer camp, and I’m so excited!
Murder List by Julie Garwood
I hear Julie Garwood writes amazing romantic suspense, and I’ve enjoyed her historical romance a lot. This one involves a doctor, which is always fun, and has really good reviews.
On the Corner of Love and Hate by Nina Bocci
Nina Bocci wrote Roman Crazy with Alice Clayton, and I loved it! So when the publisher pitched this solo title to me and said it’s for fans of Christina Lauren, I was sold.
The Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams
I’m reading this right now, and it’s fun! Things are a little slow for me at the moment, but I’m thinking it’s going to pick up soon. A group of jocks who get together for a secret book club to read and discuss historical romance novels in an effort to win back the women in their lives is a pretty great storyline!
A Crazy Kind of Love by Mary Ann Marlowe
I’m not usually a fan of rockstars in romance novels. They’re just not for me. But I just read Dating By the Book by Mary, and it’s a new favorite! So I’m interested in reading her other titles.
Beach Wedding Weekend by Rachel Magee
I’m a sucker for Hallmark movies, so of course I’m interested in Hallmark books now! I love books set at weddings. Especially when they include my favorite trope: the fauxmance.
One Summer in Santorini by Sandy Barker
I love books with travel, cruises/ships/boats, and romance. This books has all three!
Bridal Boot Camp by Meg Cabot
This just sounds so fun!
Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren
I LOVE Christina Lauren’s more recent novels, and I’m looking forward to reading this series that I’ve heard so much about.
True Gold by Michelle Pace
Romantic suspense set in Alaska. Count me in.
