NEW RELEASE TUESDAY – FEBRUARY 23, 2021

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.


Like Home by Louisa Onomé is “a poignant and incandescent debut that explores the bonds of community and what it really means to change.”

Make It Sweet by Kristen Callihan is “satisfying contemporary romance with protagonists steeped in fame but crashing to earth,” as put by Micky. Look for our review later today!

Love At First by Kate Clayborn is “a sparkling, tender novel about bickering neighbors, surprise reunions, and the mysterious power of love.” We stole the pitch because it was easier than trying to sum up this really lovely read.. though you can also check out our review here!

Best Laid Plans by Roan Parrish is book two in the Garnet Run series, a wholesome queer contemporary romance featuring cats.

The Gentle Art of Fortune Hunting by KJ Charles isn’t out until February 24, 2021, but we are boosting it anyway so you can get ready for it. We don’t know anything about this except it’s KJC which means queer, historical, and likely to be amazing.

A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas needs no introduction, does it?

First Comes Like by Alisha Rai is the third installment in the author’s Modern Love series.

You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle gets its UK paperback release and if you haven’t read this war of the roses take, it’s time!

Much Ado About You by Samantha Young is low drama and fabulous contemporary romance bringing a US heroine to the north east coast of England. It features a fab Shakespearean sub-plot and Micky recommends.

The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna is a West-African inspired fantasy with an unlikely heroine and a unique plot. This book is all about the patriarchy and is very female-centric.

Winter’s Orbit by Everina Maxwell is pitched as “RWRB meets Ancillary Justice,” and honestly you had us at RWRB.

Beneath the Keep by Erika Johansen is a new addition to the Queen of the Tearling universe but looks to be a prequel? Can’t wait!

All The Tides of Fate by Adalyn Grace is a sequel anticipated by many (including us!).
