NEW RELEASE TUESDAY – DECEMBER 22, 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.



Back to back weeks where we are both perplexed and relieved by no new releases we’re desperate for. Because we still have so many unread books from the weeks that came before! That said, are there any titles out today you’re excited for? Let us know in the comments below!

NEW RELEASE TUESDAY – DECEMBER 15, 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.



There’s nothing on our radar for today but are there any titles out today you’re excited for? Let us know in the comments below!

NEW RELEASE TUESDAY – DECEMBER 8, 2020

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

Layla by Colleen Hoover is a paranormal suspense with a bucket load of romance thrown in. This is a different offering from CoHo but if you were a fan of Verity it might be up your street.

Brambles by Intisar Khanani is a the prequel to Thorn (re-released last year). It’s a short read but brings a wider understanding to the whole premise of Thorn. It also whets the appetite for book 2 in the Dauntless Path series.

A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir is the fourth and final book in the Ember in the Ashes quartet! For those who fell behind in this series (not naming names, cough, Hollis..) this is a great time to dive into a binge.

How To Catch a Queen by Alyssa Cole is the first book in a new series, Runaway Royals, which seems to be a spinoff from her Reluctant Royals series. Which is about, you guessed it, royals!

Forever Wild by K.A. Tucker is a novella in Tucker’s Simple Wild universe which is already a bonus for fans. An extra bonus? It’s a holiday themed story!

Every Last Secret by A.R. Torre is about neighbouring couples with a focus on the women; one who has everything and the other who wants what she doesn’t have but is within her sight. It sounds like yet another dark twisty offering from this prolific author.
