Hello fellow bookworms ❤️ I love discovering new books through the bookish community, it always makes me so excited to hear people gush about their favorites 🥰 I’m doing the #DevourYourTBR reading challenge this year and September’s theme is books recommended by other readers. Therefore, I thought it would be nice to share some books that I discovered through other readers 🥰 I’m talking about 8 books that I’m excited to read and who recommended them to me. If you have any great books you love, feel free to share them in the comments 😊
➽ Why I’m excited about this book: I’ve loved Taylor Jenkins Reid’s The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Daisy Jones & the Six! I’m not caught up with her backlist, but Carrie Soto is Back immediately had my interest. It was just released and is about a retired tennis star returning to defend her record. I love reading about ambitious women and this one will be a delight ❤️
💕 Recommended by Destiny 💕
➽ Why I’m excited about this book: I’ve been trying to get into more Adult Horror and Destiny has the best horror recommendations ❤️ S.A. Barnes also writes YA under Stacey Kade and I loved her college contemporary Finding Felicity! Dead Silence will be very different, but I have high hopes! It’s about a crew boarding a lost luxury cruiser, that might be haunted 👀
💕 Recommended by May 💕
➽ Why I’m excited about this book: I’m always looking for more Manga to read and May has been gushing about this one! Witch Hat Atelier is about a young girl who dreams of becoming a witch but has no magic of her own. When a mysterious stranger comes into town, her dream might come true after all. I love stories about witches, especially if they feature a character who desperately wants magic! 😊
💕 Recommended by Abi 💕
➽ Why I’m excited about this book: I hadn’t heard of Twin Crowns before, but Abi’s Review convinced me to add it to my TBR ❤️ I’m a big Fantasy lover and this one sounded right up my alley: I love books that have great banter and romance! Twin Crowns is about two twin sisters who switch places and grew up in two very different environments. That alone is super intriguing and I cannot wait to see how it plays out!
➽ Why I’m excited about this book: I still haven’t read Kelsey Rodkey’s Last Chance Books, but I couldn’t resist getting excited for her newest release 😄 A Disaster in Three Acts sounds fantastic and it has everything I want: enemies to lovers, some angst and being forced to work together 👀 The two main characters used to be friends, but they had a falling out and now have to come together on a documentary!
💕 Recommended by Lay 💕
➽ Why I’m excited about this book: Long Story Short is a YA contemporary about a summer camp, a setting I love to read about! The main character was accepted into Oxford but has to prove to her parents that she can fit in with other teens after being home-schooled all her life. I love the premise and Lay loving this book made me even more excited to read it 🥰
➽ Why I’m excited about this book: I loved Alexis Hall’s Boyfriend Material and I’m hoping to read more of her backlist (and upcoming books) 😊 Everyone has been loving A Lady for a Duke – including Ruby and Vera – and I got it for my Kindle! It has a trans MC and an angsty mutual pining slowburn romance, which is something I love to read about!
💕 Recommended by Morgan 💕
➽ Why I’m excited about this book: I have loved Ruta Sepetys’s books Salt to the Sea and I Must Betray you, so I cannot wait to read more! Initially, I wasn’t sure about the Fountains of Silence, but since Morgan loved it so much and I enjoy the author, I’m curious to read it for myself! It’s set in 1957’s Spain and explores the fascist dictatorship of General Francisco Franco.
