Greetings and salutations, Tuesday friends! I hope you were able to enjoy your weekend and get some reading done. I don’t know what switch has flipped in my brain, maybe it’s the warmer weather, but I am extra-excited to read these days. I spent almost the whole weekend with my nose in a book, and I was able to read a couple wonderful things that you’ll be hearing me talk about a whole bunch in the future!
Now, today’s books: I do these first Tuesday megalists because the first Tuesday of each month has so many new releases, and it’s fun to round some of them up. Below, you’ll find titles (loosely) broken up into several categories, to make it easier for your browsing convenience. I hope you have fun with it! And as with each first Tuesday newsletter, I am putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have had the chance to read and loved.
And speaking of today’s great books, for this week’s episode of All the Books! Danika and I discussed some of the wonderful books that we’ve read, such as Book of Night, I Kissed Shara Wheeler, Trust, and more. And thank you to everyone who has sent us all the adorable pet pictures. 😘

The Singles Table by Sara Desai

One wedding, she is sat at the same table as Jay, and they strike up a bargain; if he introduces her to his celebrity clients, she will find him his perfect match.
