Books on Sale: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang & More

RECOMMENDED: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang is $1.99! This is a Kindle Daily Deal. I’m jealous of those who get to read this for the first time. We had a wonderful guest squee of this and it was my favorite read of 2018:

I truly loved this book. Loved. It made me feel like a champagne bubble – all fizzy and light. When I think of all the magical feelings romance gives its readers, I will forever think of this book.

Hairpin Curves by Elia Winters

Hairpin Curves

As a Canadian, my little ears perk up whenever I hear about an f/f romance that has anything to do with Canada. So, when I saw that Hairpin Curves is a road trip romance that takes the characters from Florida to Quebec, I said “Oh yes, please and thank you!” Although we see very little of them in Canada, I still enjoyed parts of this story because the angst is low, which is my speed … Continue reading Hairpin Curves by Elia Winters

The Rec League - heart shaped chocolate resting on the edge of a very old book

Cue the menacing cackles and the ominous music! It’s time for the most evil recommendation feature we have: READY, SET, GO! Here are the rules: We pick a specific sub-genre, trope, or type of romance, and we have to make ONE recommendation for that type. ONE. ONLY ONE. And no more than two sentences as to why. Yes, just one.  Which one book do you pick to fill that rec? You ready? What is the … Continue reading Ready, Set, Go: Best Witch Romance!

Speeches, Laughing Until I Cried, & More

Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.

It’s Wednesday! It’s happening again! Weird, right? In Amanda-town, it’s a cranky week where I frequently make bad sleeping decisions, like staying up past 2am to play video games. It’s like I’m in high school all over again! In more relevant news, I’m planning some awesome virtual romance events that you’ll find out about shortly. … Alisha Rai and her mom watched Indian Matchmaking on Netflix and then wrote about it for O, The Oprah Magazine. … Most … Continue reading Speeches, Laughing Until I Cried, & More

Unconquerable Sun by Kate Elliott

Unconquerable Sun

You can bet when I saw the words “gender-swapped Alexander the Great in space” used to describe a book, my immediate reaction was PUT IT IN MY EYEBALLS. Plus, it’s written by Kate Elliot, who wrote the totally amazing and ass-kicking Spiritwalker fantasy trilogy. I figured Unconquerable Sun was a guaranteed winner. Folks, it is a winner–eventually. After a stuttering start, it is jam-packed with incredibly cool and interesting sci-fi world-building and nonstop twisty politics … Continue reading Unconquerable Sun by Kate Elliott

HaBO: Secretary to Convince Hero to Meet His Dad

So here is all I can remember: – The hero doesn’t want to meet or get to know his father at all. – At first the hero doesn’t know the heroine is … Continue reading HaBO: Secretary to Convince Hero to Meet His Dad

Books on Sale: Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir & More

RECOMMENDED: Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir is $2.99! This is part of today’s Kindle Daily Deals, which also feature some great romance and historical fiction. AJ and I did a lot of squeeing about this one on a podcast episode. Will you understand what’s going on? Probably not, but you’ll have a lot of fun being clueless. I also gave it a B+:

Gideon the Ninth is a unique and bloody bananapants book, and I do think it’s worth a reader’s curiosity. Gideon is an unforgettable protagonist.

HaBO: Muddy Boots

This HaBO comes from Allison, who is looking for this contemporary romance: I saw this one on Bookpage’s blog when that was still a thing, maybe 3 or 4 years ago. Now that they’ve changed the format, it’s gone. The excerpt was from when the man and woman meet at the beginning of the book. It’s from her perspective, I think she’s a real estate agent or possibly a lawyer. He walks in to the office … Continue reading HaBO: Muddy Boots

The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows by Olivia Waite

The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows

Tara and I loved The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows, a slow-paced f/f romance that is a standalone novel in the “Feminine Pursuits” series by Olivia Waite. I (Carrie) raved about The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics so I was very excited for this book. Although you don’t have to have read that book to enjoy this one, you’ll recognize one of the main characters, Agatha, if you have. Agatha Griffin is a printer … Continue reading The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows by Olivia Waite

My Heart’s in the Highlands by Amy Hoff

My Heart’s in the Highlands

Tara: Hello! It’s me, once again crashing one of Shana’s reviews (thank goodness she loves me). I was SO excited when I found out she was reading My Heart’s in the Highlands, because I’d just finished and was desperate to talk to someone about it. This book is BANANAS and kind of messy, but I was into it. Shana: Meanwhile, I was quietly squeeing to myself, with no one to talk to about how ridiculous … Continue reading My Heart’s in the Highlands by Amy Hoff
