In 2020 my romance book buying went a little wild. It was the first full year I read historical romance and so I had so many books and authors to buy and explore. This year I want to make sure that I’m reading the ones on my shelves rather than just constantly buying new ones. So in order to do that, I’m making myself lists throughout the year of the ones I need to get to in between my book buying bans.
In March and April, I’ll be back on a book buying ban so today I’m here to share with you the ones I’ll be trying to read before I get back to buying in May. These are a mix of physical and eBooks.
Famine by Laura Thalassa
One of my main reading goals for the year is to catch up with series, and this would help with that goal too. This is the third book in the Four Horseman series, but right now book four doesn’t have a release date so I’d technically be caught up until then. I loved the first two books in this series, so I’m hoping I feel the same about this one.
Rebel by Beverly Jenkins
You may have seen this one in the best friends picks my TBR post Angel and I did late last month, but it’s the one I decided to start the project off with. I really know nothing about this one other than that it’s historical, American and of course, follows characters of colour. I think they’re both black characters, but I’m not 100% sure on that one. Either way, I’m excited.
A Rogue’s Proposal / A Secret Love by Stephanie Laurens
I’m slowly working my way through the Cynster series at the moment, and these are books four and five. I like not really knowing what to expect with these ones as they seem to usually have some kind of mystery element to them and it’s fun to just let Laurens take me on that journey without knowing what it is. I own the next three or four books in the series after these, so if I can read a few more during March & April, I may order the next ones in May.
Love in the Afternoon by Lisa Kleypas
This is the fifth and final book in the Hathaways series and I’m very excited for it. I’ve had kind of mixed results with the rest of the series so far—I love 1 and 3, hated 2 and 4 so I’m hoping I’ll follow in that pattern and will end up really enjoying this one. I know a lot of people love this one, so here’s hoping I’m the same!
Lord of Fire / Lord of Ice by Gaelen Foley
And finally, these are books two and three in the Knight Miscellany series. I read book one, The Duke, a few months back and loved it and I just didn’t get to these. I own this entire series, which is seven books long, so I do really need to get a move on with these.
So those are the ones I’ll be prioritising for the next two and a bit months. I’ll definitely be trying to get to a few others, particularly this month, but in any hope I’ll get to these too!
