The Courtney Milan Novella Collection is $2.99 at Amazon and Barnes & Noble! This collection features four, standalone novellas and the actual length of these is collectively longer than a typical novel (as per the description).
If you’re new to Hide Your Wallet, this is where we list new releases we’re pretty excited for in the coming month. Each reviewer has a book maximum (five per person), and we’ve separated HYW into two parts. The first HYW of the month will cover books that release from the 1st to the 14th. The second HYW will cover books released from the 15th to the end of the month. We also think this … Continue reading March 2023 New Releases, Part Two
RECOMMENDED: Written in the Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur is $3.99! Though the book copy mentions both Pride & Prejudice and Bridget Jones’s Diary, though our reviewers mention it’s more like the former than the latter. Aarya and Tara reviewed this one together and gave it an A-:
Tara: This book is so freaking cute, it should be illegal. And luckily, Aarya agrees with me, so we’re talking about it together!
RECOMMENDED: A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn is $2.99! The latest book out now and it’s a good time to start this series. This is a historical mystery and Sarah really enjoyed it. Here’s what she said:
I read A Curious Beginning with an I-cannot-put-this-down enthusiasm and devoured it very quickly. I relished both the characters and the mystery. The Veronica Speedwell series is excellent and intelligent fun, and while the second isn’t quite as satisfying as the first, I heartily recommend them both.
RECOMMENDED: Beginner’s Guide: Love and Other Chemical Reactions by Six de los Reyes is 99c at Amazon! Sarah enjoyed this nerdy romance and gave it a B:

Much of the story is about Kaya’s journey from accepting herself to appreciating herself, and her growth from keeping a massive distance between her thoughts and her emotions to learning how to relate them to one another, and to take the risks involved in engaging with other people.
The Changeling by Victor LaValle is $1.99! This is a fantasy horror novel that has been recommended to me several times. Content warning, though, as it does deal with portrayals of mental illness and children in peril. Have you read this one? I think I might see if my local bookstore has this in stock!
