New Books

First Tuesday of November Megalist!

It’s time for another round of “HOLY CATS! THERE ARE SO MANY BOOKS.” It’s another fabulous first Tuesday megalist, and there are sooooo many great books on here. You can hear about several of today’s new books on this week’s episode of the All the Books! Jenn and I talked about a few amazing books we loved, including The Best Bad ThingsKingdom of the Blazing PhoenixBorn To Be Posthumous, and more.

(And like with each megalist, I’m putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have read and loved. But there are soooo many more on this list that I can’t wait to read!)

Zandy Lynch is determined not to be a virgin when she heads off to grad school, and she’s got one night in London to lose her V-card before spending the summer as a research assistant to an ancient professor in the English countryside. Oliver Graeme is not looking forward to having some American co-ed hovering around while he’s trying to work, but he needs the help. While visiting London, he winds up having the sexiest night of his life with a stranger who vanishes in the morning without a trace. When Zandy and Oliver next cross paths, to their shock, it’s as professor and research assistant. Aloof professor by day and a generous, rough lover by night, Oliver is like nothing Zandy’s ever imagined. Does she stand a chance at not falling for both versions of him?
