Welcome back to a new week of new releases! We’ve switched Hide Your Wallet to a weekly basis in an effort to cover more books in a more digestible format. There’s some scifi, fantasy, horror, and even non-fiction. Also, a lot of interesting covers! Which books do you want to pick up or put on hold this week? Let us know in the comments!
Sailor’s Delight by Rose Lerner is $1.99! I remember this was mentioned on a Hide Your Wallet post and many of the Bitchery were excited about it. I believe this sale is good for the entire week if you’re unable to grab it today. Did you read it?
Let’s start with the fact that I adore KJ Charles’ books. All of them. So I was well-positioned to love this one, especially as I had adored the first book in this series, which Carrie reviewed. Book two didn’t quite have the complexity of that first book, but I still loved this story and devoured it quickly. Rufus, a major in the army, has found out that he is in fact an earl, specifically the … Continue reading A Nobleman’s Guide to Seducing a Scoundrel by KJ Charles
We’ve hit fifty posts! Can you believe it?! This one is full of book recommendations I’ve found from other people or recommendations given to me personally. There’s some oceanic horror, pop culture deep dives, supervillains, and Arthurian legends. Have you picked up anything based on a recommendation lately? Have a rec you want to pass along? Let us know!

Welcome to Book Beat! Book Beat aims to highlight other books that we may hear about through friends, social media, or other sources. We could see a gorgeous ad! Or find a new-to-us author on a list of underrated romances! Think of Book Beat as Teen Beat or Tiger Beat, but for books. And no staples to open to get the fold-out poster.
The transcript for Podcast 580. Stop and Look at the Stars, with Jennifer L. Armentrout has been posted!
The Belle of Belgrave Square by Mimi Matthews is $1.99 and a Kindle Daily Deal! Lara reviewed this and gave it a B-:
If you’re looking for a Victorian historical with a heroine who is brave despite herself, in a book that won’t rip your heart out or drag you through rivers of angst and misery, then I think you’ll enjoy this romance.
I had a whopping good time talking with Jennifer Armentrout about her new book, Fall of Ruin and Wrath, about ApollyCon – which is now almost 10 years old! We’re going to talk about the behind the scenes of ApollyCon, her launch title for the new Bramble imprint of fantasy romance, plus she takes questions from some of you about disability advocacy, living with a visual impairment, and what changes she’s seen in publishing. Music: … Continue reading 580. Stop and Look at the Stars, with Jennifer L. Armentrout
The Fiancée Farce by Alexandra Bellefleur is $1.99! This is a fake relationship romance with two women who are tied to the book world. One has a bookshop and the other is from a publishing dynasty.
Do not fear the page length of The Good Ally, which, in paperback form, is enormous. The book has a generous font size, it’s easy to read in terms of language, and the author, Nova Reid, is firm but empathetic in her approach to those of us who want to be actively and effectively anti-racist but may find ourselves sidelined by ignorance, fear, shame, and our own internalized White supremacy. Even if you’ve done a … Continue reading The Good Ally by Nova Reid
Welcome back, everyone! How are we all doing? I can’t stop thinking about this Smitten Kitchen recipe for Pizza Beans. We ate almost all of it in one go and have been mourning the loss of leftovers. Do y’all have any recent recipes that you’re loving? I’m also hoping we’re slowly sliding into fall soon in New England. I’m a sucker for “soup season” and big, oversized sweaters. … Sarah: I was the guest this … Continue reading Links: Podcasts, Reading Recs, & More
