Over the past few months, I’ve collected a lot of books on my Kindle, especially during February when there were a lot of contemporary romance books on sale, which is my favorite genre. Here are a few books that I picked up recently:
- The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
The Unhoneymooners is a fairly hyped book in the bookish community. While all of the books that I’ve read by Christina Lauren have only been average for me, the plot sounded really interesting to me, so I decided to buy it for my Kindle. Unfortunately, many aspects of this story fell flat for me and only ended up as an average read like Christina Lauren’s other books.
The Unhoneymooners follows Olive, whose sister recently got married. Olive goes on her sister’s honeymoon after she sister, as well as many of the guests, get food poisoning from food at the wedding. However, the trip isn’t as relaxing as Olive hopes because the annoying best man at the wedding joins her on the trip.
- The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai
I heard about The Right Swipe, but it didn’t sound like something I would be interested in reading. However, I saw a few reviews of this book online that were very positive, and since I’m always willing to be proved wrong about a book, I decided to download it. Since it was recently on sale, I couldn’t pass it up for such a good price.
In The Right Swipe, dating app creator Rhiannon matches with Samson, a professional football player. However, problems arise when Samson works with one of Rhiannon’s biggest rivals.
- Truly, Madly, Royally by Debbie Rigaud
Truly, Madly, Royally is one of the books on my 20 books I want to read in 2020 list. I’ve wanted to read it for awhile now, so when I saw it on sale recently, I purchased it immediately. I’m typically not into contemporary royal romances, but this sounds like a cute, and fun contemporary, so hopefully it will change my mind!
In Truly, Madly, Royally, Zora meets Owen, a cute boy at her prestigious summer camp who invites her to his brother’s wedding. Since it is a royal wedding, Zora faces scrutiny in real life and online.
- Of Curses and Kisses by Sandhya Menon
Sandhya Menon’s books are either hit or miss for me, but I couldn’t pass up reading something slightly out of her typical genre. I am a huge fan of fairytale tellings as well, and this one does its own play on Beauty and the Beast. Hopefully, I enjoy this book as much as I enjoy the synopsis!
Of Curses and Kisses follows Raya, a princess, who goes to a royal boarding school to get back at a rival clan of her family by targeting one of its members. However, Jaya struggles once she starts to fall for the enemy.
