Premise:

When Emily’s sister got in an accident, she dropped everything to help her and her niece. So when said niece needs an adult to volunteer with her at the Renaissance Faire, she agrees. However, what she didn’t expect was to make an enemy of the man running it, Simon, so quick. He has no patience for Emily and is quick with a critique, but once they get on Faire grounds, he changes completely. He turns into a suave pirate and flirts constantly with Emily’s character, but is it real, or is it just the characters they have to play?

15 September 2019 Book Releases!

Fall is here and I’m only a little bitter about it. Okay who am I kidding, I’m very bitter. While fall may be my favorite season, I feel like summer went by way too fast!

That said, I’m not bitter about the books coming out this month! A couple of these books I’m about to talk about have become all-time favorites of mine, and I can’t wait for everyone else to read them!

Now, there are a lot of September releases. Seriously. A lot. So much that I have to split up this list into sections. First, we have my top 7 YA standalones and series starters, but I’ve also included a list of 6 sequels as well as 2 non-YA releases I’m excited for.

Wrap Ups & My August TBR (caitsbooks.com)

July Favorites, Reading Rush Wrap Up, + My August TBR!

I think I finally did it. I think I beat my reading slump.

It only took me… five months. But I did it!!!

July was a surprisingly good month for me. At this point, I had given up all hope and thought that I would never regain the motivation to read like I had, but then came The Reading Rush.

Readathons scare me. A lot. So I had never done one before. I never liked the idea of pushing myself to read as much as possible, because I thought it would inevitably cause me to burn myself out.

Looks like I was wrong.

12 Summer Romances (6 YA + 6 Adult)

Okay, before I start, I’ve already lied to you. Well, I misled you.

Technically, some of these books don’t take place during summer, so they aren’t all exactly “summer” romances. That said, they all give me a summer vibe, and I would read all of them on a beach, so I think they count.

For me, summer is the perfect time to dive into romances. I always start my summer with a list of cute rom-coms on my TBR, but come August, I’ve completely gone through it.

I figured I can’t be the only one with this problem, so I’ve compiled a different list of a few of my favorites that you can add to your TBR this summer!

Read more to see 6 summer YA romances, plus 6 summer adult/new adult romances!

Summer & Fall 2019 Releases – 3 Review Teasers

I usually try to write full reviews on Tuesdays, but this past month, I haven’t read anything that I can review. I’ve been focusing a lot on getting ahead and making my way through my BookCon/BEA ARC pile, but because these books won’t be released until later this year, I don’t want to write full reviews just yet.

That said, I still want to talk about them. So while we wait for their release dates to grow closer, here are some quick teasers for a few of the ARCs I’ve been reading.
