I am absolutely blown away by the brilliant writing of Lindsey Jesionowski in her stunning debut. The words have a lyrical feel to them and the story itself is so enticing and interesting that once you start, it’ll be hard to put it down. And there’s a part of me that can’t quite believe that this is Lindsey’s debut, because this book is fantastic.
What an incredible debut by Hannah Smith! Hazy Love is the story of 27 year old Hazel Jones going through the motions following a break-up with her cheating ex, lots of drinking to numb herself and the constant struggle of being unable to do the one thing she wants.
I absolutely devoured Kate McWilliams’ debut as soon as it landed on my Kindle and I loved the suspense element that I didn’t see coming! This small town, second chance romance is a great debut and an easy and captivating read.
Easy and light, Influenced Love is a fun read. There are some hilarious moments and some moments where you might feel secondhand embarrassment, but all good books have those pieces.
Look at this cover! It’s so beautiful and it really nicely depicts the story of Vassa and Lazarus, but what the cover also doesn’t show is just how deep this story runs! It Started with a List is a fantastic debut and one that’s got me excited for what Tinia Montford has coming next!
Kaye Rockwell’s debut shook me to my core in all the right ways. Glad You Exist is a young adult contemporary romance and while it tackles all of the teenage woes of being in love with your best friend, dealing with friendships and straddling the line of being a good daughter and a good friend; this book also tackles some really heavy topics.
The Wedding Planners follows Jemma and Nash as they navigate life in New York while being forced to plan a wedding together, days after they shared the hottest night of their lives, working around their feelings for each other and their struggles with finding themselves in the mess of it all. It’s a fun, sexy and beautiful read that I think everyone desperately needs in their lives.
I’d like to take a minute to just stand up and clap for the masterpiece that is Natasha Bishop’s debut novel. Because this book was EVERYTHING! While a steamy romantic suspense with two brilliant leads, Where We Found Our Home is about so much more than just that.
Elliot Andrews’ romance debut is the first book I’ve read that talks about the pandemic and its existence! I love that. I know that we all want to forget about the pandemic and how it’s affected our lives, but Elliot weaves it into his story seamlessly and it makes sense given the journey that our hero goes through to get to the end of the book.
This book was so wonderful! Open Lanes is Mary Morano’s debut novel and it was such a good time! And it featured one of my favourite tropes of all time – road trips – so that only made this book that much more exciting and lovely to me.
