BEST OF 2022: Top Picks by Trope

Who doesn’t love a good trope? Everybody’s got a favorite, from tense enemies to lovers reads to playful fake relationship romances. I’ve always got certain expectations when I start reading a story that plays up a trope, and the books on this list all exceeded those expectations.  I’ve selected the two books that I think...

Best of November 2022

5-star reads were few and far between for me this month, making them feel even more special when I found them. After loving Elsie Silver's Heartless in October, I went a full four weeks(!) without a 5-star read, which is unheard of for me. It was only after another reader recommended Amanda Gambill's Honestly, I'm... Continue Reading →

Best of October 2022

I read some excellent books in October, with two that are clear contenders for my Best of the Year list! Earlier this year, I read and adored Flawless by Elsie Silver, and I was convinced there was no way that the next book in the series would earn my love in quite the same way.... Continue Reading →

Best of September 2022

I read some really great romance books in September! If you saw my monthly wrap-up, you know that I held off on reading some of my most anticipated new releases (I didn't have any time to devote to full-day binges!), so I ended up checking out a lot of new-to-me authors this month. That always... Continue Reading →

Best of August 2022

You'll be seeing some of these books on my Best of 2022 list for sure - August brought some excellent reads. Both Love on the Brain and Thank You For Listening made my Best of 2022 (So Far) list back in June after I posted my sneak peek reviews, and they remain some of my... Continue Reading →

Best of July 2022

July may have been a rocky reading month for me, but I ended up with some GREAT reads. I think it says a lot that my Best of July list only includes one July release, lol, though three of these came out in June. I had to look a little harder than usual for books... Continue Reading →

Best of June 2022

An embarrassment of reading riches made it VERY difficult to put this list together, lol! I couldn't limit myself to six books this month, so I've got six top picks and a few honorable mentions. My top picks were all really great reads, and the honorable mentions would've easily made the list in a less... Continue Reading →

Best of April 2022

There were some AWESOME new romances released in April! While the month was super uneven overall, the books that worked for me really worked, and I'm betting they'll leave a lasting impression. And my favorites were all SO different that it'll probably take a few months before I know which was my absolute top pick.... Continue Reading →

Best of March 2022

Redemption seemed to be the theme of the month, and I'm not complaining! This is one of those months where I would've anticipated a completely different group of books making my Best of the Month list, so the surprise discoveries were that much sweeter. I've got two new-to-me authors, two newer-to-me authors, and two rising... Continue Reading →

Best of February 2022

I'd call February a disappointing release month overall, but there were still some great new books! This month, my favorites were immediately obvious to me, so I've separated these into two groups - Top Picks and Honorable Mentions. My two favorite new releases were EASILY Lease on Love and A Ticking Time Boss. Lease on... Continue Reading →

Best of January 2022

I'm going to be catching up on January releases for the next several months, because there were SO MANY new romance books released this month! Nearly every one of my favorite authors released a new book in January, so there were tons to choose from - and I ended up reading many excellent books. There... Continue Reading →
