1. Eleanor & Grey by Brittainy C. Cherry – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This is releasing today!! I just finished this, this past weekend and it is an absolutely beautiful story. This follows Greyson and Eleanor when they first meet as teenagers and again 15 years later. It is an amazing second chance romance that had me in bawling my eyes out multiple times. If you’re looking for a heartfelt romance, please pick this one up!
2. Girls on the Verge by Sharon Briggs Waller
I heard about this book from Chelsea Dolling Reads channel, and I’ve been hyped for it since! This is a YA, contemporary following a group of young women in Texas who are traveling across the country to the nearest women’s clinic. It’s an empowering story about a woman’s right to chose.
3. Crazy for Your Love (The Boys of Jackson Harbor #5 by Lexi Ryan
I read the first book in this series a couple months back and fell in love with these characters! I still have a lot of books left until I get to this one, but I’m excited to binge them all asap! This series is an adult romance following the Jackson family in Jackson Harbor, Michigan.

Can we take a moment to talk about how flipping gorgeous this cover is! This is an adult romance following Valerie after a series of bad events. She’s made a vow to say yes to new adventures and ends up meeting a gorgeous, broody rugby player. It also seems like this has the fake dating troupe – which I love!!

This is a second chance romance following the most embarrassing meet cute. This sounds super adorable, and I’ve heard great things about this author!

Currently Reading/What’s Next
In April I’m testing out a new TBR approach – I’m setting weekly TBR’s rat
1. When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore
This is the April read for the Dragons and Tea Book Club hosted by the amazing MelToTheAny and A Court of Crowns and Quills. This a YA magical realism about a young girl who appears out of a water tower. Magical realism isn’t usually my genre, but I really liked Blanca & Roja by McLemore so I’m excited to read this.
2. The Foxe & the Hound by R.S. Grey
I started this on audiobook yesterday and it’s already the cheesy, rom com of my dreams. This book is a goofy, sweet enemies to lovers romance following a woman with a large puppy she can’t handle and the man that dog tramples – who also turns out to be the new guy in town… and her vet.
3. The Murder on the Links (Hercule Poirot #2) by Agatha Christie
This is my next read for the Magical Readathon and covers the History of Magic prompt – a book published over 10 yeas ago. I’m excited to finally continue on with the Hercule Poirot series.
4. Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
I have an e-arc of this from Netgalley and desperately want to get to it this week! This is being released on May 14th and I’ve heard AMAZING things about this book. This is a new adult romance between the presidents son and the prince of Wales. I’m so damn hyped for this book!
