NEW RELEASE TUESDAY – JUNE 2, 2020

Happy “where’d all my money go?” new release Tuesday, everyone!

As you know, the most exciting day of the week in this community is the day that follows the one we all dread (Mondays for the nope) and today we’re going to highlight some of the new books chipping away at our bank accounts — but each one is so worth it.


MY CALAMITY JANE is book three in the Lady Janies series by this trio of authors and this retelling/parody/homage (if you’ve read the series, you understand) features the wild west and werewolves! Naturally.

CONVENTIONALLY YOURS by Annabeth Albert is a m/m romance set around, well, a convention. Nerds, fandom, opposites attract.. it’s all here. Review will be up on the blog tomorrow!

Out on June 4, 2020 is THE COURT OF MIRACLES by Kester Grant. A ‘Les Mis’ type of re-imagining, this epic read is fantastic and we have a review coming for it.

A DARK AND STORMY KNIGHT is book seven in Kerrigan Byrne’s Victorian Rebels series and the long-awaited romance for a certain Chief Inspector from Scotland Yard. Hollis remains disappointed this didn’t go in an m/m direction but alas.. she’ll still read it. It’s Byrne after all.


Are there any titles out today you’re excited for? Let us know in the comments below!

MONTHLY WRAP UP – MAY 2020

To close out each month, we’ll be posting a break down of everything we reviewed, beginning with the reads we loved.. and ending with the reads we didn’t. Not only does this compile all our reviews in one handy summary for you to peruse, or catch up on, it also gives us an interesting birds eye view of the month and our reads. And maybe, even, our moods.
