Books on Sale: To Have and to Hoax by Martha Waters & More

RECOMMENDED: To Have and to Hoax by Martha Waters is $1.99!  Aarya read this one and gave it a B:

Despite all these points, I adored To Have and to Hoax. It made me giggle constantly during a week when I had little to smile about. I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone; if the antics sound juvenile and infuriating, then you won’t like the story. But if you’re in the mood to escape into a Regency romp and swoon over a married couple falling in love again, I recommend To Have and to Hoax as your escape of choice.

HaBO: Roommates Share a Bed When Power Goes Out

This HaBO is from Ariel who wants to find a book they recently read: I recently came across a book, probably a week or two ago, on my Kindle app. The book features a female main character, and she lives with a male roommate. I believe the roommate was considered “cold” or “mysterious”, and she didn’t know him really well and they did not have much of a relationship. The two however are forced to … Continue reading HaBO: Roommates Share a Bed When Power Goes Out

Cover Snark: Is It Too Early for Easter?

Planet Oster Fertility Fusion by J.L. Logosz and Vera Valentine. A giant purple Saturn and a phallic metal rocket take up the bottom half of the cover. The top half is three shirtless men in different color shades: yellow, pink, and blue. They also have bunny ears.

It’s Monday morning and time for some Cover Snark! From Rebecca: For your consideration for cover snarkiness because the title hurts my brain. Sarah: Sir, I am just as confused as you are. Elyse: WTF is happening with his armpit? Also it sounds like the baby she’s carrying is her roommate’s dad so is this a time travel issue? Sarah: Wait, maybe the cover model is pregnant with their roommate’s dad? That’s going to be … Continue reading Cover Snark: Is It Too Early for Easter?

Get Rec’d with Amanda – Volume 26

Hey there! Are you ready to get rec’d? This is where we get to talk about book recommendations, whether we’re receiving them or giving them out. I love to do a bit of handselling at the bookstore and it’s always a point of pride when a customer takes a chance on your suggestion or staff pick. Have you recommended any good books lately? Picked up anything based on a friend’s suggestion?
