  • Take Me Home Tonight by Morgan Matson – This is such a fun contemporary young adult read! Real friendships with a touch of shenanigans and a NYC background.
  • The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes – I was addicted to this book once I started reading it .. and that ending? WHAT! I need the sequel now.
  • The Lost Love Song by Minnie Darke – I enjoyed the way that the “lost love song” was threaded throughout the book and was a cause for the interactions between the characters.
  • The Playboy Prince and the Nanny by Donna Alward – Fairy tale romance type of read. Simple, sweet, and easily enjoyable.
  • Marathon Man by William Goldman – I read this book as well as the sequel Brothers and all I can really say about these two books is that they are weird and filled with secret agents and Nazi’s.
  • Before You by Amber Hart – I read this book as well as the companion After Us. Both books are young adult contemporary romances with a good girl/bad boy vibe.
  • The War That Saved Me by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley – This book was recommended to me by Lindsey and it is SO GOOD! Such a compelling and heart warming read.
  • Lifting as We Climb: Black Women’s Battle for the Ballot Box by Evette Dionne – I found this book to be very informative. I learned quite about Black women who played a significant role in women’s suffrage – which is still a subject that I’m not as familiar with as I could like to be.
  • The Black Friend: On Being A Better White Person by Frederick Joseph – I read this one in order to expand my horizons and be a more diverse reader. While I enjoyed it, I was also conflicted about how some subjects were written and interpreted.
  • Love In Lockdown by Chloe James – Set during the initial lockdown phase of the pandemic, this book was a surprise read for me. Primarily focused on community and human interaction and connection which I found to be good themes to in on.

These are just a few of my most recent reads. Have you read any of them? If so, what did you think? If you made a TTT list, be sure to leave me your link so I can check it out!

  1. I’m curious about Morgan’s book (sounds exactly as you describe!) and I own Jennifer Lynne Barnes’ book too (sounds way interesting!), but alas haven’t read it. Glad to know it’s an intriguing read. 🙂

  2. I haven’t read any of these books yet. Take Me Home Tonight always reminds me of the Eddie Money song from a long time ago. Love in Lockdown sounds interesting.
