Can you believe that November is already here? Happy Thanksgiving to our American readers and, for everyone, it’s Black Friday sales, so it’s time to stock up on your books for the Holiday Season! Here are some recommended new releases, a classic lesfic novel and a last year’s book you shouldn’t miss.
Recommended new releases:
‘London, actually‘ by Clare Lydon
Clare Lydon’s novels are the epitome of lesbian rom-coms, full of romance, hot chemistry and feel-good moments. Her books are funny, witty and quintessentially British, but not overwhelmingly so. The plots are tightly woven, the characters are well rounded and the dialogues are humorous and engaging. ‘London, actually’ is no exception. 5 stars.
‘Ask me again‘ by E.J. Noyes
This is the sequel of ‘Ask, tell’ which was one of my favourite lesfic books of 2017. This is a novel with a surprising level of depth and isn’t a light read. It’s intense, raw, emotional and even heartbreaking. Great sequel that does justice to the characters’ story. 5+ stars.
‘Media darling‘ by Fiona Riley
Emerson Sterling is a famous actress with a bad-girl reputation. Hayley Carpenter is a celebrity gossip journalist whose dream is to be a screen writer. When their paths cross in an awkward situation, they start to form a bond which evolves into something deeper. But Hayley soon learns the high price to pay behind the apparent glamour of celebrity life. An entertaining, poignant and romantic story with a side of social critique to celebrity culture and the media. 5 stars.
Classic lesfic book:
‘It should be a crime‘ by Carsen Taite (2009)
Published in 2009, this is Ms. Taite’s first legal thriller which is followed by an extensive list in this sub-genre. ‘It Should Be a Crime’ has it all: sizzling connection of the main characters, a high-profile murder trial and twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages. 5 stars.
Last year’s book you shouldn’t miss:
‘Casting Lacey‘ by Elle Spencer
This is a very good debut novel that combines the fake girlfriend trope with celebrity lifestyle. The story is full of humour, wit and saucy dialogues but also has angst and drama. Highly recommended if you are into fake relationships and don’t mind a side of angst. 4 stars.
