I am over on Goodreads where I’ve set a goal to read at least 20 books this year (not including my own which I read to edit and make notes on).
I’ve finished two so far this year.
I try not to overdo it because I have the unfortunate inability to “just read a couple of chapters at bedtime.” I start reading and 6 hours later, as I finish the book, tell myself that 2 hours of sleep is plenty for the average book-loving human.
But, I enjoyed these books and thought you might too.
For Romance readers (affiliate link):
This was a sweet little Christmas romance. Admittedly, you may not be in the mood for a few months, but you can always add it to the “Want To Read” Shelf. ( Note: While the main characters do not have on-the-page sex, things do get to a mildly steamy level, so be aware. I wouldn’t categorize this as straight “sweet/clean” romance.)
For Historical Fiction readers (affiliate link):
This one is a little bit of a generational saga and a little bit of “finding yourself,” I think. It started slow, but once I was into it I had to finish, which is what we all want, right? If you’re interested in the time frame/location, it covers from just before the turn of the 20th century to 1950. There’s some back and forth in timelines, and deals with both World Wars.
You can click on the book images to go to Amazon and purchase if you’re interested. They’re affiliate links, so I’ll earn a few pennies if you do. Do know this, I bought these books (or found them free through BookBub or other advertising sources) and the authors don’t know me and nobody asked me to read or recommend these books. If I ever do read and recommend an ARC or author friend’s book, I’ll be sure to let you know.
