Can’t Wait for … Anchored Hearts by Priscilla Oliveras

Sure, some people swear by not judging books by their covers. However, I'm a sucker for a flashy cover and, every once in a while, I find a book with a cover that seemingly encapsulates everything I want to read. All I can do is dive on in, whether or not the story behind the … Continue reading Can’t Wait for … Anchored Hearts by Priscilla Oliveras

Can’t Wait for … Mother May I by Joshilyn Jackson

Part of the reason I enjoy participating in Top Ten Tuesday is that every single week, without fail, it introduces me to a large number of books I've never heard, but that sound fantastic. This week, the theme was focused on books released in 2021, which meant that while reading post after post from other … Continue reading Can’t Wait for … Mother May I by Joshilyn Jackson

Can’t Wait for … Hot, Hot Chicken by Rachel Louise Martin

Whenever a new book of food history is announced, my ears perk up. It's like a sense: I know when an author bestows a culinary gift onto the publishing world and, in turn, a publisher smiles on consumers ... Well, that might be a little dramatic, but I am always on the lookout for great … Continue reading Can’t Wait for … Hot, Hot Chicken by Rachel Louise Martin

Can’t Wait for … Fairy Godmothers, Inc. by Saranna DeWylde

For all this talk of festive magic and cheer right now, I'm in the mood for some regular magic. Classic magic. Unleaded magic. Your mama's keep-some-in-the-pantry-just-in-case magic. While there are plenty of writers who know to use this winning ingredient, not many can weave blissful romance with an enchanting twist quite like Saranna DeWylde. Fortunately, … Continue reading Can’t Wait for … Fairy Godmothers, Inc. by Saranna DeWylde

Can’t Wait for … Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Q. Sutanto

Sometimes I stumble across a blurb so great—that so perfectly fills a bookish need I didn't even know I had—that I don't even know how to discuss it. So this week, I'm going to let the blurb speak for itself. But seriously, I cannot wait for this book. Today I'm waiting for... From the publisher:What … Continue reading Can’t Wait for … Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Q. Sutanto

Can’t Wait for … The Restoration of Celia Fairchild by Marie Bostwick

I grew up reading advice columns. When my parents would read newspapers, I'd grab for the comics and, in turn, the half-page devoted to people and their issues. The reason I actually started reading them has been lost to time and my brain, but every Sunday I was engrossed in the solutions offered up by … Continue reading Can’t Wait for … The Restoration of Celia Fairchild by Marie Bostwick

Can’t Wait for … The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon

One of the things I love about reading romance is that, as a genre, it's packed with tropes. If I come across a storyline that I'm particularly excited about, there's a good chance there are other great books out there that use similar elements. Friends to lovers. Mistaken identity. Second chance romance. Sign me up; … Continue reading Can’t Wait for … The Ex Talk by Rachel Lynn Solomon

Can’t Wait for … Christmas Island by Natalie Normann

You know what I—and I'm sure many others—could use this year? An escape. While that's not going to happen right now in the traditional sense, it does mean that my reading has gone in a very specific direction. I'm grabbing at bright stories, filled with a little adventure, a little romance, and a lot of … Continue reading Can’t Wait for … Christmas Island by Natalie Normann

Can’t Wait for … A Glimmer of Death by Valerie Wilson Wesley

In terms of reading, there's nothing more comforting than a good cozy mystery. I mean, you know, setting aside the whole murder thing, they're a lot of fun. Great characters in a quirky set of circumstances. An engaging plot that leaves me guessing. Plus, they usually take place in communities so idyllic and tightknit that … Continue reading Can’t Wait for … A Glimmer of Death by Valerie Wilson Wesley

Can’t Wait for … Murder in Old Bombay by Nev March

What a Wednesday. Like many people in the United States, I'm running off of little sleep, I'm probably not hydrated enough, and the only body parts I've exercised in the past twenty-four hours are the fingers I'm using to refresh election results. There's a lot of uncertainty right now, so tonight I'm diving deep for … Continue reading Can’t Wait for … Murder in Old Bombay by Nev March
