My Top Ten Most Recent Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and The Artsy Reader Girl. I love to talk about what I've been reading! As you might be able to tell by the fact that I run a book blog. I've recently read some romance novels, queer contemporary YAs, and (a first for me) a queer adult fantasy! A number of the books I read were ARCs of books coming out this summer and fall, so be on the lookout for those coming out later this year!

1. Devil in Disguise by Lisa Kleypas - I read this as an ARC and absolutely loved it! It is a solid examination of love and family while also being a great romance!

2. She Drives Me Crazy by Kelly Quindlen - We are getting all the queer YA this year, and She Drives Me Crazy is a great addition to my collection!

3. If This Gets Out by Sophie Gonzales and Cale Dietrich - I was so excited when I got this ARC! I dived in immediately and absolutely loved this m/m YA romance!

4. Malice by Heather Walter - My first adult fantasy novel! I adored the main character Alyce and am always down for queer reimaginings of fairy tales!

5. The Hellion's Waltz by Olivia Waite - I got approved for an ARC of The Hellion's Waltz and knew I had to read it ASAP! We get a f/f romance, a swindle adventure, and some great music!

6. The Viscount Made Me Do It by Diana Quincy - I absolutely loved the first book in this series, so I grabbed up this ARC at the first opportunity! I absolutely loved it and enjoyed this more diverse look at historical romance London!

7. The Duchess Hunt by Lorraine Heath - I'm a big fan of Lorraine Heath, and always request her ARCs the second they go up! I definitely enjoyed this and look forward to the next one!

8. Girls With Rebel Souls by Suzanne Young - I was super excited when my preorder came in for Girls With Rebel Souls, the last book in this near-future series. It does a good job of examining what could happen to our world, and I'd love to see more of these characters in the future!

9. The Salt in Our Blood by Ava Morgyn - This plays with a number of themes including loss, parental relationships, and the lasting effects of abuse and grief.

10. The Girls I've Been by Tess Sharpe - While in some ways really dark, The Girls I've Been is also really fun. We get smart teens solving problems, some of which they should never have to solve.
