Happy Tuesday, Wormies! I am making my own theme for today because I don’t read a lot of novellas and I really had a hard time coming up a list for that topic today.
So I decided to list eight of my 5-star reads this year so far! I am only including books published (or will be published) this year, and I am not including rereads to this list.
5-Star Books I’ve Read So Far in 2018
When a Duke Loves a Women by Lorraine Heath
Sins of All Seasons #2 | Pub Date August 21, 2018
When a Duke Loves a Woman is one of my highly anticipated reads for this year and I am so glad I read it waaaay in advance! I will be reviewing this book closer to its release but I can’t recommend this book enough! Picture a kickass woman who owns a bar/pub in St. Giles and a Duke? YAZ QUEEN!
The One You Can’t Forget by Roni Loren
The Ones Who Got Away #2 | Review | Pub Dat June 5, 2018
The One You Can’t Forget was a surprise for me because it was so damn good! I was touched and I cried and OMG, there is food involved! I also loved that it’s the hero who wanted a relationship, while the heroine was the one who refused and had a whole lotta baggage.
Melt For You by J.T. Geissinger
Slow Burn #2 | Pub Date May 15, 2018
I’ve never literally laughed out loud and cried while listening to a book. Melt for You is a freaking awesome read AND listen, of course! Plus, it features an older curvy female and a younger guy. PLUS, it is a slow burn romance, which is another surprise in itself because I don’t really love slow burn romances.
My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan
Standalone | Review | Pub Date April 24, 2018
WOW! This book is awesome! It is very heartwarming and heartbreaking and I was bawling like nobody’s business! If you love a good cry and basically an awesome story, THIS is the book for you. Also, it’s narrated by Julia Whelan!
Recovered by Jay Crownover
Standalone | Review | Pub Date March 24, 2018
I can’t recommend Recovered enough. For most of you who read my review, you will know why. This book really touched me in ways that I didn’t expect to. This is an awesome new adult read and an all-around awesome Jay Crownover book. It is dark, it has angst, and yes, sexy times is smokin’!
Getaway Girl by Tessa Bailey
Standalone | Pub Date March 26, 2018
Here’s another Tessa Bailey book that I enjoyed so much! I love, love, LOVE Getaway Girl! It is funny and scandalous and features a dirty talking heroine! This book is set in Charleston and it was an interesting read with a touch of politics and scandal. Also, there is a Christmas decorated apartment that was a safe haven.
Wanderlust by Lauren Blakeley
Standalone | Review | Pub Date March 20, 2018
I was blown away by Wanderlust. I mean, not because it was narrated by Richard Armitage, but because it took me to another world! Wanderlust was an awesome read and I felt that I was in Paris! The romance was top notch and also heartwrenching!
True to You by Jennifer Ryan
Montana Heat #2 | Review | Pub Date February 27, 2018
True to You was the first Jennifer Ryan book I read and I was amazed at how good it is! This was my first 5-star read this year and I immediately read the first book in the series. I love dark romances and this one has it in spades! The hero is undercover and falls for the villain’s daughter!
Have you read any of the books on my list?
