This spring lot’s of great books are coming out. Here is my list of my Top Ten Books on my Spring 2014 TBR List
I am so excited for Paige Toons new novel! For many I’ve ben a huge fan of her books and they never dissapoint. I’m sure this one is not going to dissapoint either.
Maddy, dressed in white, stands at the back of the church. At the end of the aisle is Rob – the man she’s about to marry. Next to Rob is Ben – best man and the best friend any two people ever had. And that’s the problem. Because if it wasn’t Rob waiting for her at the altar, there’s a strong chance it would be Ben. Loyal and sensitive Ben has always kept his feelings to himself, but if he turned round and told Maddy she was making a mistake, would she listen? And would he be right? Best friends since childhood, Maddy, Ben and Rob thought their bond was unbreakable. But love changes everything. Maddy has a choice to make but will she choose wisely? Her heart, and the hearts of the two best men she knows, depend on it…
As some of you know, I was not the biggest fan of Billy and Me. Even though I’d like to read her her new novel to see how Giovanna’s writing style has changed. The cover is utterly beautiful and the blurb promises a fabulous romantic story.
Lucy and Owen meet somewhere between the tenth and eleventh floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they’re rescued, they spend a single night together, wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is restored, so is reality. Lucy soon moves to Edinburgh with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father. Lucy and Owen’s relationship plays out across the globe as they stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and — finally — a reunion in the city where they first met. A carefully charted map of a long-distance relationship, Jennifer E. Smith’s new novel shows that the center of the world isn’t necessarily a place. It can be a person, too.
This has grabbed my interest on Netgalley. Great blurb, great cover! Can’t wait to read it!
The Accident made it on my to be read pile because of Laura of Shelovestoread. This book was part of a Weekly Wrap Up Video and grapped my interest when she started talking about it. Usually I am not reading crime and thriller based book but I absolutey want to give this a go. Sounds fabulous!
The Best Thing That Never Happend To Me by Laura Tait and Jimmy Rice (April 2014)
Everyone remembers their first love. Holly has learnt that life isn’t about seizing the moment. She might have harboured dreams about travelling the world as a teenager, but she let go of those – just as she let go of Alex. But what if the feelings never really went away? Alex wants to make every moment of his new job count. It’s a fresh start in a new city, and he knows that moving to London has nothing to do with Holly. Well, probably. How do you know if it was meant to be. or never meant to happen at all?
I can’t wait to read this one! An ARC Copy of this beauty is waiting on my kindle for me. The cover is lovely and the blurb sounds like a great story. I think I could easily fall in love with. I’m very curious how it’s going to be like read a story out of a mens point of view.
I found out about this one just very recently. I’ve spotted it on another book blogger’s blog. Eye catching cover and a great blurb which promises a good story.
Suddenly she’s starting to put her life back together, and, apart from the fact that her hard-to-please new boss is breathing down her neck, things are looking good. But what goes on in the Hope Street Hotel is a far cry from anything she’s ever dealt with before. This is a pioneering ‘divorce hotel’ designed to make every aspect of breaking up efficient and pain-free. In one single weekend, Chloe’s team promises to take care of everything – legal, technical, emotional – and guests check out carefree and single.
No one is better qualified than Chloe to understand what couples need when their relationship is at breaking point, but she soon finds herself having to tackle the heartbreak she’s tried to bury. In particular three couples need her help – Jo and Dave, Lucy and Andrew, and Kirk and Dawn – and the opening weekend is full of revelation, trouble, memories happy and sad, facts that need facing, and some very big surprises. It’s time to move on. And it soon becomes clear that some endings are, in fact, very exciting new beginnings …
Unfortunately I have not read any of Claudia Carrolls books yet but this one seems like a good one to start with. Absolutely stunning book cover.
Everett is an outsider who’s housesitting his family’s mansion off the coast, and for reasons Lacey can’t understand, he’s completely transfixed by her. He seems determined to show her that life can offer more than she’d ever hoped for, if only she believes in herself. She desperately yearns to trust him, but what happens when she finds out that everything he’s told her is a lie?
This sounds like a great New Adult and Contemporary Romance book. I’ve not read a book in this genre for quite a while so I think this is a good one to pick up to. Also spotted on Netgalley.
Which novels are you looking forward to this Spring? I’d love to hear from you!
