message 1: by Wes (new)

Wes I'm looking forward to reading "Dead at First Sight" by Peter James, the latest in his great DS Roy Grace series. It is due out on the 16th. I pre-ordered the Kindle edition weeks ago. I strongly recommend this British police detective series. Begin with "Dead Simple", the first book, and read them in order.


message 2: by The Confused (new)

The Confused Flamingo I read an ARC of "Red, White & Royal Blue" back in march and I fell in love with it instantly, and I definitely plan on rereading it as soon as I'm done with finals.. It's so wholesome and adorable and is basically everything romance should be all in one place.

I also want to read "The Unhoneymooners" cause it sounds wonderful and I've read stuff by Christina Lauren before and loved it.


message 3: by Bethany (new)

Bethany Harding I’ve heard so many rave reviews for the night before! Can’t wait to read this one!!


message 4: by nitya (new)

nitya We Hunt the Flame and There’s Something about Sweetie! (It’s not on this list but w/e)


message 5: by Marjoreen (new)

Marjoreen Thompson A brightness long ago


message 6: by Natasha (new)

Natasha Niezgoda The Night Before is a fantastic thriller! I loved the character development! And I CAN'T WAIT to read the Unhoneymooners!!


message 7: by Jim (new)

Jim Karen Russell "Orange World and Other Stories", Max Porter "Lanny", and Gregoire Courtois "The Laws of the Skies"...


message 8: by Yaaresse (new)

Yaaresse It's official. The so-called f-bomb has jumped the shark and lost all meaning except as a verbal tic and marketing bait. Now authors are just going to throw it in the title of everything because it's a fad. It's not edgy or "brave," it's just desperate and sophomoric.


message 9: by Michel (new)

Michel They are all great books, but I'm sure that people will also love to read " John Trinidad". It's a great and touching story about overcoming.


message 10: by Theresa (new)

Theresa The Unhoneymooners made me laugh out loud often. Those who enjoyed the Hating Game by Sally Thorne will appreciate this book!


Amy "the book-bat" There's Something About Sweetie looks to be a cute one. I read When Dimple Met Rishi and loved it, so I think Sweetie will be just as good

Looking forward to several this week :-)


Erin *Proud Book Hoarder* I haven't heard of any of these.
