Virgin River Collection: Volume 2 by Robyn Carr is $3.99! This collection includes books five through seven in the Virgin River series, plus a novella. I believe we’ve featured the first collection on sale previously and this set is one step closer to collection completion.
RECOMMENDED: The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare is $2.99! This is the first book in the Girl Meets Duke series. Elyse really loved this book and gave it an A grade:
I totally recommend reading The Duchess Deal, but preferably while sober so you can really appreciate all of it. It’s the perfect blend of two of my favorite fairytale tropes, it’s got a hero who never an alpha-hole, it’s funny, and it’s got female friendship. What more could you want?
Welcome back to Whatcha Reading! Hope this week has lifted your spirits in some way, with or without some good book noises. Here’s what we’ve been reading lately: Carrie: I just started Fugitive Telemetry by Martha Wells and also Metazoa: Animal Life and the Birth of the Mind by Peter Godrey-Smith. Shana: I’m reading Big Friendship: How We Keep Each Other Close by Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, the hosts of the Call Your Girlfriend … Continue reading Whatcha Reading? January 2021 Edition, Part Two
Matzah Ball Surprise by Laura Brown is 99c! This is a contemporary romance with a fake relationship. Sneezy had mixed feelings about this one and gave it a C:
A lot of what’s good about this book was really good, but the things that didn’t work for me downgraded my experience a lot.
The Duke of Midnight by Elizabeth Hoyt is $1.99! This is Maiden Lane book 6, and it has a 4.1-star average. This series in particular is a favorite here at the Pink Palace. I know both Elyse and I have really enjoyed these books. Though they can operate as standalones, I believe every three books or so starts a new major story arc. Correct me if I’m wrong!
This Rec League was sent in to us by Persephone: I’m looking for books with characters who are adopted. The adoptions might be no big deal or they might be of some importance but the main plot is not about the adoption or the fact that the character was adopted. Amanda: Bolded for emphasis. And Sarah came through with ALL of the recs! Sarah: My brain short circuited with this one because my first thought … Continue reading The Rec League: Adopted Main Characters
The Warlord Wants Forever by Kresley Cole is $1.99! There is some contention about whether this is the true first book of the series or if it’s more like 0.5 in the series because of its shorter length. If I remember correctly, the story was actually in an anthology first and, truthfully, you can read the other books without having read this one. I am such a fan of this series, but it’s very early 2000s PNR flair. The most recently in the series, Wicked Abyss, which is my favorite so far is also on sale.
RECOMMENDED: Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade is $3.99! Shana reviewed this one in October and gave it a B+:
Spoiler Alert is tropey wish fulfillment, but at its heart, it’s is a quiet contemporary with a #couplegoals relationship where both characters offer comfort, create beautiful art, and help each other overcome insecurities. Spoiler Alert is also a love letter to fandoms, that will make you want to chase your romance novel with a shot of fanfiction.
You Had Me at Hola by Alexis Daria is $3.99! We mentioned this on last year’s Hide Your Wallet posts and it was recommended on a couple podcasts. We were all very excited for it and look at that dang cover! Have you read it? What did you think?
