Do you have any fall releases on your TBR yet? 📚.
.
Twice Dead by Caitlin Seal releases on Sept 18 and is definitely on my TBR! It sounds like the perfect Autumn read with necromancy, supernatural beings and creepy vibes! I will leave the synopsis below for you all to check out! 🖤.
.
Thank you so much to @charlesbridgepublishing for sending this one my way! 🖤.
____________________________________________________
In this imaginative debut perfect for fans of character-driven fantasies like Graceling and Daughter of Smoke and Bone, seventeen-year-old Naya Garth becomes one of the undead and an unlikely spy for her country.
.
Naya, the daughter of a sea merchant captain, nervously undertakes her first solo trading mission in the necromancer-friendly country bordering her homeland of Talmir. Unfortunately, she never even makes it to the meeting. She's struck down in the streets of Ceramor. Murdered.
.
But death is not the end for Naya. She awakens to realize she's become an abomination--a wraith, a ghostly creature bound by runes to the bones of her former corpse. She's been resurrected in order to become a spy for her country. Reluctantly, she assumes the face and persona of a servant girl named Blue.
.
She never intended to become embroiled in political plots, kidnapping, and murder. Or to fall in love with the young man and former necromancer she is destined to betray.

I’ve had Summer Reads on my brain lately. I just want all of the books that will give me Summer Feels! The Sunshine Sisters by @janegreenauthor is definitely one of those books! It released on June 6 and is available now! This book is a story of sisterhood and sounds so beautiful, emotional and touching. I will leave the synopsis below for you all to check out! 🧡💙.

Thank you so much to @berkleypub for sending this one my way!
_____________________________________________________
Ronni Sunshine left London for Hollywood to become a beautiful, charismatic star of the silver screen. But at home, she was a narcissistic, disinterested mother who alienated her three daughters.
.
As soon as possible, tomboy Nell fled her mother’s overbearing presence to work on a farm and find her own way in the world as a single mother. The target of her mother’s criticism, Meredith never felt good enough, thin enough, pretty enough. Her life took her to London—and into the arms of a man whom she may not even love. And Lizzy, the youngest, more like Ronni than any of them, seemed to have it easy, using her drive and ambition to build a culinary career to rival her mother’s fame, while her marriage crumbled around her.
.
But now the Sunshine sisters are together again, called home by Ronni, who has learned that she has a serious disease and needs her daughters to fulfill her final wishes. And though Nell, Meredith, and Lizzy have never been close, their mother’s illness draws them together to confront the old jealousies and secret fears that have threatened to tear these sisters apart. As they face the loss of their mother, they will discover if blood might be thicker than water after all...

Tell me what you’re reading this Sunday!
.
Sorority by @genevieveslycranewriter has been on my TBR since the second I read the synopsis! This book sounds to me like if the cast of Gossip Girl had to live in a sorority together! It seriously sounds so intriguing and addictive! It’s already in stores and I will leave the synopsis below for you all to check out!
.
Thank you so much to @gallerybooks For sending this one my way!
_________________________________________________________
Sisterhood is forever…whether you like it or not.
.
Prep meets Girls in White Dresses in Genevieve Sly Crane’s deliciously addictive, voyeuristic exploration of female friendship and coming of age that will appeal to anyone who has ever been curious about what happens in a sorority house.
.
Twinsets and pearls, secrets and kinship, rituals that hold sisters together in a sacred bond of everlasting trust. Certain chaste images spring to mind when one thinks of sororities. But make no mistake: these women are not braiding each other’s hair and having pillow fights—not by a long shot.
.
What Genevieve Sly Crane has conjured in these pages is a blunt, in your face look behind the closed doors of a house full of contemporary women—and there are no holds barred. These women have issues: self-inflicted, family inflicted, sister-to-sister inflicted—and it is all on the page. At the center of this swirl is Margot: the sister who died in the house, and each chapter is told from the points of view of the women who orbit her death and have their own reactions to it.
.
With a keen sense of character and elegant, observant prose, Crane details the undercurrents of tension in a world where perfection comes at a cost and the best things in life are painful—if not impossible—to acquire: Beauty. A mother’s love. And friendship… or at least the appearance of it. Woven throughout are glimmers of the classical myths that undercut the lives of women in Greek life. After all, the Greek goddesses did cause their fair share of destruction.

Do you ever get surprise book mail and get so excited?! 📖💌.
.
I recently got Breathless by @celeste.bradley and @susandonovanauthor and it sounds SO GOOD!! This one released on June 12 and I will leave the synopsis below for you all to check out! 💗.
.
Thank you so much to @stmartinspress for sending this one my way! 💗.
____________________________________________________
In Breathless, bestselling authors Celeste Bradley and Susan Donovan will sweep you away―across continents and centuries, combining the best of all worlds in one unforgettable romantic saga.
.
She was “the Swan.” London’s premiere courtesan. Men want to be with her. Women loathe her success and yet admire her beauty, her riches, her independence. But when the jealous wife of her lover moves to have the Swan banished from her home on the high seas, she winds up crashed against Spain’s rocky coast with no shoes, no clothes―and no name. Taken in by a tortured, sensuous man known as The Artist, the Swan comes to know the woman she wants to be―her artist’s siren.
.
When Art Professor Brenna Anderson is in danger of losing her post at Harvard, the rule-following, prim professor is at a loss of how to salvage the shreds of her life. But when a new painting in the mysterious Siren collection is discovered in a dusty old house in France, Brenna does the unthinkable―hops on a plane to uncover the identity of the beautiful, enigmatic woman who is the subject of the paintings.
.
There’s just one hitch―the frustrating, irritating, bold and beautiful art hunter Fitch Wilder is also looking for the Siren. He’s been a thorn in Brenna’s professional side for years, but when their individual quests lead them to team up despite being enemies, a whole new sumptuous world of art and culture opens up for the two of them. And with it, they enter a realm of passion and love…

Are you planning any rereads soon? 📖.
.
I am really hoping to reread Persuasion this Summer. It is my second favorite Austen Novel, following Pride and Prejudice very closely. It’s also quite a short and easy read. If you’re ever thinking of trying a classic, it’s a good place to start! 💗.

Who was your most recently discovered Author? 💻 📝.
.
I had the pleasure of “meeting” @lisawbecker through Bookstagram and was so excited to receive her contemporary romance Clutch! This books has been rereleased with a new cover and 5 new bonus chapters! It sounds like such a fun read! I will leave the synopsis below for you all to check out! 💙💛.
_____________________________________________________
Clutch: a novel is the laugh-out-loud, chick lit romance chronicling the dating misadventures of Caroline Johnson, a single purse designer who compares her unsuccessful romantic relationships to styles of handbags – the “Hobo” starving artist, the “Diaper Bag” single dad, the “Briefcase” intense businessman, etc. With her best friend, bar owner Mike by her side, the overly-accommodating Caroline drinks a lot of Chardonnay, puts her heart on the line, endures her share of unworthy suitors and finds the courage to discover the “Clutch” or someone she wants to hold onto.

I am so excited to talk about Tattered by @devneyperry Which is available now! I have already heard some amazing reviews for this book and I cannot wait to read it! I am going to leave the synopsis and buy links below for you all to check out!
.
Check out a really cool article I was featured in on USA Today’s HEA about this book! The link is in my bio!
_____________________________________________________
SYNOPSIS:
Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It’s somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn but below the class where much comes easy. With her tattered shoes and bargain-bin clothes, her life has never been full of glamour.
.
So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn’t fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she’s kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She’s given up hope of seeing him ever again.
.
Until one day, years later, Logan Kendrick waltzes into her life once more and turns everything she’s built upside down. This time around, she won’t make the same mistake. She’s going to fight to keep him in her life—not for herself.
.
But for their daughter.
