Summer Reading Recommendations

Hi everyone! Before starting this post, I want to encourage you to support the protests going on right now against the murder of Black people by the police, which were sparked by the murder of George Floyd. If you want to know how to help, click this link where you can find where to donate, petitions to sign, where to text or call to demand justice, and other useful information.

Now onto the post! Summer is almost here and I wanted to put together a list of books that I think are great summer reads. When thinking about perfect books to read in the summer, 3 things come to mind for me:

  1. Light and fun romantic comedies
  2. Highly entertaining fantasy books
  3. Smart mysteries

So today, I have 3 recommendations for each of those categories:

LIGHT & FUN ROM-COMS

Island Affair by Priscilla Oliveras

If there is a book more perfect for the summer than this one, I haven’t read it! This is a fun romance novel where the two main characters are fake dating because the heroine needs to look good in front of her family during a vacation to Key West, and before long, things turn all to real between the main characters. If you enjoy romance books that include complicated family dynamics, this one is for you! (Full review)

You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle

A hilarious second chance romance between two main characters who are engaged and want to call off the wedding but whoever does it has to pay for it, so the two of them go head-to-head in a battle of pranks and sabotage to get the other one to it call off. If you like funny, slow-burn, hate to love romances, this one is a great choice for the summer!

The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa

A highly entertaning romance book about a wedding planner who gets left at the altar because the best man convinced the groom not to get married. Worst of all, she ends up having to work with the best man to get her dream job. This book includes Brazilian culture in a great and seamless way and a fantastic hate to love romance. If that sounds interesting to you, give this book a chance!

HIGHLY ENTERTAINING FANTASY BOOKS

Incendiary by Zoraida Córdova

Incendiary is a YA fantasy book inspired by the Spanish Inquisition about a young woman that was kidnapped and used for her magical powers, before being rescued by a rebel group, and who has to go back to her captors in order to defeat them. This book has an intricate magic system, vivid characters, twist and turns that will keep you at the edge of your sit and an ending that will leave you wanting more. (Full review)

Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno- Garcia

A young woman accidentaly rescues the Mayan god of death from imprissionment and ends up having to go in a life changing journey with him to save both of their lives. The Mayan mythology in this book is captivating and lush and the mix of the mythological elements and the ‘modernity’ of the Jazz Age gave this story a unique touch. If you are looking for a fantasy story that’s different to anything you have read before, check out this one!

Storm Front by Jim Butcher

A wizard detective has to work with the Chicago police to fight evil that most people don’t even believe exist. This book has an interesting magic system and magical creatures (vampire, demons and evil wizards make an apperance), and a compelling mystery element. This book is so entertaining and fast paced that it’s perfect for the summer. If you like both fantasy and crime novels, I think you’ll enjoy this one!

SMART MYSTERIES

I See You by Claire Mackintosh

A woman sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper and she is determined to find out why it’s there. Then the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that. Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make. If you enjoy twisty and gripping mysteries, this book is for you!

Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie

The tranquillity of a cruise along the Nile is shattered by the discovery that someone has been murdered and nothing is what it seems, so Detective Poirot who was aboard the ships has to find out who is the murderer. Soon to be a movie, this Agatha Christie book is perfect for fans of mysteries revolving around love, jelousy and betrayal.

Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng

A child goes missing and turns up death, this is the story of how her parents and siblings deal with the grief and loss and how all the things that they don’t tell each other start to come up. This book explores very important and heavy subjects in a subtle and brilliant way. Some of the topics it explores are parent/children relationships and the weight of expectations as well as the different ways in which women and people of color experience otherness. If you are looking for a mystery that will make you think, this one is perfect for you!

Ranking all the books I read this month aka my February 2020 Wrap Up

Reading Wrap Up

Hi everyone! It’s time for my february wrap up and I’m excited with the new format that I’m using where I rank all the books I read from my least favorite to my favorite book of the month. The ranking is not enterily dependent on rating, so there can be books with lower ratings that are higher on the list than other books with higher ratings and that has to do with my enjoyment of the books.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted my February tbr and I’m so happy to say that I read all the books on it – even if I finished We Unleash the Merciless Storm on March 1st which is why it’s not gonna be in this wrap up. So I read 8 books on my February tbr + 6 more books that were not on it. Here’s how I ranked them:

*Click the book titles to go to the Goodreads page*

My Least Favorite Books of the Month

Unfortunately, this month I read two books that I really disliked and that I had a lot of issues with, specially in terms of characters and writing.

14. Frenemies by Emma Hart (2,5 stars): The writing in this wasn’t good and the main character was annoying, she kept going around in circles about her relationship with the love interest and then she suddenly changed her mind at the end. I think this had lots of potential, but it needed to be longer and better written.

13. Dominik by Sawyer Bennet (2,8 stars): the hero of this book was extremely arrogant and controlling, he was a very two dimentional character and even if he did get a bit better by the end, the improvement wasn’t significant. Beyond sexual chemistry, the characters didn’t have any connection and they barely speak to each other for the first half of the book. Also, the writing wasn’t the best, the inner monologues of the main characters were so repetitive.

The One I Had Issues With, But It’s Not Bad

The books I give ratings between 3 and 3,5 stars are the ones that I have a lot of issues with but they have redeeming qualities and I can see that they are not bad books.

12. American Street by Ibi Zoboi (3,4 stars): This was a quick read but I had a hard time getting into it because I didn’t like the main character, I found her naive and judgemental. Nonetheless, all the other characters were interesting. This book didn’t handle the topic of abusive relationships very well and the ending was rushed and it was deus ex machina.

The “I Mostly Liked Them, But…” Books

The “I mostly liked them, but…” books are the ones I give between 3,5 and 3,7 stars to and they are books that have small things I disliked or I had some issues with them.

11. Unbreakable by Melanie Harlow (3,7 stars): I really liked both of the main characters, they had great chemistry and they were kind and understanding with each other. There was a storyline in this that was predictable revolving around pregnancy and infertility and I think it could have been handled better.

10. Wherever You Are by Krista & Becca Ritchie (3,7 stars): This book was told in dual timelines, at the beginning it did a good job of staying in one timeline long enough to not feel jumpy, but halfway through it started to feel like a bunch of scenes haphazardly put together without a strong narrative behind them and it actually skipped some really important scenes, which annoyed me.

9. The King of Crows by Libba Bray (3,7 stars): Nothing happened in this until the very end and then when the big confrontation took place it was so anticlimatic. The ending was nothing memorable and it felt like the stakes were super low. Still I’m not mad at this book because my two favorite characters got the ending I wanted for them and that was all I was asking.

The Ones I Really Liked

I consider books I really liked the ones I give a rating somewhere between a 3,8 and a 4,4 stars.

8. The Night Masquerade by Nnedi Okorafor (3,8 stars): It took me a while to get into this, but when the action started, I got really invested in the story. This book tried to cram to much world building into very few pages and it suffered a bit for it and also I didn’t love the ending, but overall I enjoyed the conclusion to Binti’s story.

7. The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa (3,8 stars): This was a highly entertaning read, I really liked the characters and their chemistry was off the charts. Also, I LOVED the way Brazilian culture was incorporated. I know a lot of people were saying that the sex in this book was awkward and I would agree that the first sex scene was, but it got better.

6. Duke by Default by Alyssa Cole (3,8 stars): The plot of this got a bit ridiculous by the end, but I LOVED Portia and Tavish as characters and as a couple, their chemistry was amazing.

5. A Prince on Paper by Alyssa Cole (3,8 stars): I LOVED the main characters! Nya and Johan are precious and I loved seeing them fall in love and get their happily ever after. I think the whole storyline with Nya’s father was resolved in a very weird and rushed way, but beyond that I really enjoyed it

4. Can’t Escape Love by Alyssa Cole (4 stars): This book has the most adorable, nerdy couple I have ever encountered in a romance book. I LOVED both of the main characters. There was a point where this book had me at the verge of tears just because the hero felt confused and sad and that’s a testament of how deeply Alyssa Cole made me fall in love with the characters.

3. American Sweethearts by Adriana Herrera (4 stars): I love both of the main characters. Juan Pablo is such a swoonworthy hero. I really love how sex positive and unapologetically Latinx this book is. (Full review)

2. Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams (4 stars): Queenie’s voice is incredibly captivating even when her life is spinning out of control. The first half of this book is full of Queenie making terrible choices and getting involved with the most horrific men, who treated her like she was a plaything that was there for their pleasure. But seeing the whole process she went through to get better was beautiful.

My Favorite Book of the Month

My favorite books of the month can have different ratings depending on how good a particular reading month was, but the books I consider new favorites usually are the ones that get a rating of 4,5 stars or more. This month unfortunately I didn’t rate anything higher than 4 stars, but I still read a brilliant book:

1. The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin (4 stars): The world building and magic system in this book were unique, intriging and devastating. The way it mirrors our society was smart and poignant. There were so many twist, some that I saw coming and some that I didn’t, but they all made sense to the story. I loved Syenite and Alabaster and I’m heartbroken over everything they went through. This is brilliant but the last 80 pages made me feel hopeless and angry and devastated and I’m not sure that I will continue on with the series because this book was one bad thing after another and I feel like I can’t handle that.

What were your favorite and least favorite books you read this month? Have you read any of the books on this wrap up? Do you agree with my opinions about them?

My Most Anticipated Romance Books of 2020 | Blogmas Day 17

Hi everyone! Today I have a list of my most anticipated romance books that are coming out in 2020. Before starting I think it’s important to mention that most of these books are part of a series, but all of them can be read as standalone novels if you don’t mind spoiling other books.

It was really hard to narrow down this list, but here are the 10 books I chose (more like 11, but…):

*Click the titles to go to the Goodreads page*

Love Her or Lose Her by Tessa Bailey

Release date: January 14th 2020

Rosie and Dominic are high school sweethearts, who used to be maddly in love, but now Rosie’s lucky to get a few words from the ex-soldier.  So encouraged by her friends, she proposes a marriage boot camp and it’s surprise when Dom actually agrees. The relationship rehab run by hippies helps their relationship get stronger than ever, but then Rosie discovers Dom has a secret… and it could demolish everything. 

Why am I anticipating it? I LOVED Fix Her Up, the first book in this series of companion novels, and I was so intrigued by the glimpses of Rosie and Dom that we got in that book that I can’t wait to read their story. I recently realized that I actually like second chance romances, so I’m excited to read more of them starting with this one!

Whatever it Takes + Wherever You Are by Krista & Becca Ritchie

  Release date: January 21st  & January 28th 2020

Garrison has a reputation as a bad boy but no one knows the abuse he endures at home, and then he founds someone who sees beyond his walls and wants to help him, the only problem is that he likes the sister of the only guy willing to give him a second chance, she is true good girl that sees more in him too.

Why am I anticipating it? Garrison and Willow were minor characters in a series I read a long time ago and the authors actually started to write their story in Wattpad for free for the fans and then realized that there was a lot to tell and decided to write these books, so I have waiting for this moment for 5 years because I love these characters and their relationship and I’m FINALLY GETTING THEIR BOOKS!

The Worst Best Man by Mia Sosa

Release date: February 4th 2020

Enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy about a wedding planner who gets left at the altar and whose new job requires her to work with the best man who ruined her wedding: her ex-fiancé’s infuriating and annoyingly handsome brother. Soon they discover animosity may not be the only emotion creating sparks between them

Why am I anticipating it? I’m a big fan of Mia Sosa’s Love on Cue series and I’m excited to have a new book by her to read. Also, going by the synopsis this book is right up my alley, specially since it has hate to love.

Dominik by Sawyer Bennett

Release date:  February 18th 2020

Dominik, a billionaire who owns a hockey team, wants more than just a good time with Willow, a war photographer, who is the sister of one of his star players, the only problem is she is hesitant, so he has to win her heart.

Why am I anticipating it? This is the sixth and final book of the Arizona Vengence series, I have loved all the previous books and I have been waiting to read Dominik and Willow’s story for a while now, so I’m definitely excited. Willow is such a cool character, I’m sure I’m gonna love her as the protagonist of her own story.

Undercover Bromance by Lyssa Kay Adams

Release date: March 10th 2020 

When Liv’s blackballed from the restaurant scene for confronting a celebrity chef that harrased a hostess, Mack offers to help expose her ex-boss, but she is suspicious of his motives. He’ll need to call in reinforcements: the Bromance Book Club. Inspired by the romantic suspense novel they’re reading, the book club a helps Liv with her problem, but they’re just as eager to help Mack figure out the way to Liv’s heart.

Why am I anticipating it? I LOVED the first book of the Bromance Book Club series and I really liked Mack as a minor character, so I’m happy he’s getting his own book. The whole concept of this series is so unique and cool, can you imagine if more men read romance books?!

If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane

Release date: March 24th 2020

Laurie’s partner of over a decade suddenly ends things and since they work together, she has to see him every day. When news of her ex’s pregnant girlfriend hits the office, Laurie decides she needs a new man to give people something else to talk about and it turns out that Jamie needs a respectable, steady girlfriend to impress their bosses. It’s the perfect proposition: a fauxmance, but there’s a fine line between pretending to be in love and actually falling.

Why am I anticipating it? Fake dating is one of my favorite tropes, so as soon as I read the synopsis of this book I knew I needed to add it to my tbr. I also really like office romances, so that’s a plus as well.

The Honey-Don’t List by Christina Lauren

Release date: March 24th 2020

Carey and James work for home remodeling gurus Melissa and Rusty Tripp. With a new show and a book about to launch, the Tripps are on the verge of superstardom. There’s only one problem: they can’t stand each other. Both James and Carey must go on book tour with the Tripps and work together to keep their bosses’ secrets hidden, and their own jobs secure. But then they realize that they may have the chance to build something beautiful together.

Why am I anticipating it? I’m a big fan of Christina Lauren’s books and the premise of this one sounds so cool that it has me counting the days until I can read it! This reminds me a bit of the movie set it up and I hope I enjoy it as much as I enjoyed that movie.

American Sweethearts by Adriana Herrera

Release date: March 30th 2020

By the end of a trip to Dominican Republic, the love/hate thing JuanPa and Pris have been doing for sixteen years has risen to epic proportions. And they can both finally admit—if only to themselves—they’ve always been a perfect match. The future they dreamed of together is still within reach…if they can just accept each other as they are.

Why am I anticiáting it? This is probably my most anticipated book of 2020, I read the first three books in the series in 2019 and in those books there have been hints of the history between Priscilla and Juan Pablo, which are the main couple in this book, and I can’t wait to know what happened between them in the past and how are they gonna get back together. Another second chance romance that I can’t wait to read.

You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle

Release date: April 7th 2020 

Naomi and Nicholas are about to get marry, the problem is that both of them have been feigning contentment. But whoever backs out of the wedding has to pay for it, so the two of them go head-to-head in a battle of pranks, sabotage, and all-out emotional warfare. But now that they have nothing to lose, they’re finally being themselves–and having fun with the last person they expect: each other.

Why am I anticipating it? I LOVE the premise of this book and I know a few people that got arcs of this and they loved it, so it makes me so excited to read it! The premise of this reminds me a bit of The Hating Game and since that’s one of my favorite romances of all times, so I’m hoping I’ll love this one as well.

Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert

Release date:  June 23rd 2020

Zafi rescues Dani from a workplace fire drill gone wrong and for Dani is a sign: they are destined to sleep together. But before she can explain that fact, a video of the heroic rescue goes viral. Now half the internet is shipping #DrRugbae—and Zaf is begging Dani to play along, since his sports charity for kids could really use the publicity. Dani’s plan is simple: fake a relationship in public, seduce Zaf behind the scenes. The trouble is, grumpy Zaf’s secretly a hopeless romantic.

Why am I anticipating it? Recently I read the first book in this series and loved it, Talia Hibbert’s writing and her characters are amazing. I’m excited for Dani’s story, specially since I love the fake dating trope and they are fake dating for a good reason.

What 2020 romance books are you highly anticipating?
