Hey, my darlings.

Nicely, right here we’re: September. I don’t learn about you, however the previous couple of years have positively left me feeling tremendous disoriented. Certainly it’s not autumn of 2021….that simply doesn’t sound correct.

That mentioned, I’m trying ahead to some crisp fall climate and SUPER trying ahead to adorning for Halloween quickly!! I’ve at all times liked Halloween and now that I’m all grown up with my very own little entrance yard to brighten I really lean into it. It’s a lot enjoyable.

I’ve been studying a LOT this 12 months. I believe it’s a mixture of causes: as a result of I can’t actually go wherever, as a result of I’m burdened and books make me really feel higher and in addition simply because I like doing it. I’ve been diving actually enthusiastically into City Fantasy as a style and I’ve had the nice luck to find a number of new-to-me UF authors I actually love (Ilona Andrews, Seanan McGuire, Karen Probability). So many good books currently! I’ll need to do a brand new large studying checklist once more quickly.

How are you doing? Had been you in a position to get some refreshing relaxation this summer season earlier than diving into Fall’s new beginnings?

xoxo,

What I’m Studying

The Royals Subsequent Door by Karina Halle. Yesss, this e book! There are royals however not one of the royals are concerned on this e book’s central romance…that honor goes to a sure taciturn bodyguard who likes to bake and the royal family’s new neighbor, a schoolteacher who takes care of her mom and likes issues quiet. This modern Romance is so cute and candy and enjoyable – like a scrumptious cupcake for the mind, however a genuinely touching and real one. I actually liked it.

Blood Inheritor by Ilona Andrews. I discussed Ilona Andrews above as one of many authors I’ve been tremendous into currently. That is their newest: the primary e book in a secondary collection that’s meant as a comply with as much as the creator’s improbable Kate Daniels collection. Blood Inheritor is improbable, with the entire elaborate mythology and engrossing character arcs as the unique collection. I strongly strongly suggest that you just learn Kate Daniels, first, although, otherwise you’ll have a number of spoilers for the unique collection’ fundamental plot factors. Even the very fact of who the primary character is in Blood Inheritor is a Kate Daniels spoiler. So I’m truly not going to let you know something about Blood Inheritor besides that you just’ll like it for those who’ve already learn and liked Kate’s books.

These books are City Fantasy and so they’re on the bloody aspect: post-apocalyptic with a number of gritty magical battles and dramatic private relationships with intricate worldbuilding based mostly on actual mythology. It’s improbable and ideal for when it is advisable disappear right into a fictional world.

Rosaline Palmer Takes the Cake by Alexis Corridor. It is a Modern Romance set at a fictional baking competitors that could be very clearly based mostly on the Nice British Bake Off and it’s so cute and heartwarming and great. Like The Royals Subsequent Door, this e book additionally options an in any other case gruff and tough across the edges hero who likes to bake. I didn’t notice “powerful guys with hearts of gold who wish to bake” was a class of Romance however I’m right here for it.
