Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish in 2010 and was moved to Artsy Reader Girl in 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new topic is chosen, this week’s is: Winter TBR.
As it’s currently summer in the wonderful land of Down Under, I’ve decided to amend the topic. As I’m in a summery mood most of my books are romance but there are a few mysteries/ soft thrillers thrown in there too!
Here they are:
Meet Cute by Helena Hunting and Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren are both romances that have been on my TBR for a long while now. Not only are their covers cheerfully bright and appealing to look at, the authors are go-to romance writers for when I’m in a HEA mood.
One of my upcoming ARC reads for the summer is Jill Mansell’s Mixed Doubles book that’s published on 7 Jan, 2020 (although there seems to be a copy released in 1998, so I’m not entirely sure if it’s just a republication of the same novel or a spin off?). Along with this, I have Elin Hilderbrand’s novels Winter in Paradise and Summer of ’69 currently gracing my book shelves. I cannot wait to give them a try! I’ve read so many positive reviews on her writing. Also, how divine are her covers? They practically beg you to think about summer!
Along with my absolute ADORATION for all things Liane Moriarty, I have recently been recommended The Last Mrs Parrish and The Mother in Law as similar mystery/thriller -type books. Their covers alone seem ridiculously similar and I’m eager to give the poolside mysteries a go!
Lastly, I’m keen to get stuck in to some slower-paced romance and character-driven stories. My love for all things Katherine Center has been blossoming lately. I’ve made it my 2020 goal to devour all of her back reads. Along with this, The Girl He Used To Know by Tracey Garvis Graves was also recommended to me due to my fascination with Katherine Center’s writing.
