Here are all the books I’ve acquired this month
One of my favorite used bookstores is McKay Used Book in Manassas, Virginia. When I first graduated from college and was super unemployed I’d go there every few weeks to find new reads. It is probably the place that sparked my initial interest in romance because they have shelves and shelves of romance.
I don’t always make it back there when I’m in Northern Virginia but I decided to stop in a few weeks ago. I could spend hours picking through their romance shelves but I only had about 45 minutes and these are the books I picked:
Reign of The Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
I saw this in the YA section and snagged it. It’s a fantasy about necromancers.
When A Scot Ties The Knot by Tessa Dare
This is one of my favorite Tessa Dare books and one I thought I might want to do a re-read so I picked it up.
After Midnight by Teresa Medeiros
I told Jess to pick out a paranormal romance for me to read and this one about vampires sounds intriguing.
Drive by Sidney Bristol
I love a good car-related romance
To Catch A Stolen Soul by R.L. Naquin
This is a Carina press romance about djinn
Catherine and The Pirate by Karen Hawkins
This one was quite a used bookstore find! In the early 2000’s Avon released a line for teen readers called Avon True Romance. These books have been put out of print for quite some time and while a few are still available as ebooks this is not one of them. I first learned about these from this Book Riot article.
Avon Addict Box
It’s always a fun day when a box from Avon arrives! It was rainy the day it arrived and I was afraid of water damage but most of the books came out just fine.
DUCHESS BY DESIGN by Maya Rodale
DIRTY LITTLE SECRET by Jennifer Ryan
FOREVER CHRISTMAS TREE by Sandra Hill
A DUKE CHANGES EVERYTHING by Christy Carlyle
THE DUKE’S DAUGHTER by Megan Frampton
THE LADY IS DARING by Megan Frampton
LADY BE RECKLESS BY Megan Frampton
SECRETS AND LIES BY SELENA MONTGOMERY
POLARIS RISING by Jessie Mihalik
KILL THE QUEEN by Jennifer Estep
I think my next read will be Secret and Lies by Selena Montgomery, aka Stacey Abrams–who could be the first Black female governor in the US.
