Written in the Stars

B085CFR2BL.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

RECOMMENDED: Written in the Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur is $3.99! Though the book copy mentions both Pride & Prejudice and Bridget Jones’s Diary, though our reviewers mention it’s more like the former than the latter. Aarya and Tara reviewed this one together and gave it an A-:

Tara: This book is so freaking cute, it should be illegal. And luckily, Aarya agrees with me, so we’re talking about it together!

With nods to Bridget Jones and Pride and Prejudice, a charming #ownvoices queer rom-com debut about a free-spirited social media astrologer who agrees to fake a relationship with an uptight actuary until New Year’s Eve—with results not even the stars could predict!

After a disastrous blind date, Darcy Lowell is desperate to stop her well-meaning brother from playing matchmaker ever again. Love—and the inevitable heartbreak—is the last thing she wants. So she fibs and says her latest set up was a success. Darcy doesn’t expect her lie to bite her in the ass.

Elle Jones, one of the astrologers behind the popular Twitter account, Oh My Stars, dreams of finding her soul mate. But she knows it is most assuredly not Darcy… a no-nonsense stick-in-the-mud, who is way too analytical, punctual, and skeptical for someone as free-spirited as Elle. When Darcy’s brother—and Elle’s new business partner—expresses how happy he is that they hit it off, Elle is baffled. Was Darcy on the same date? Because… awkward.

When Darcy begs Elle to play along, she agrees to pretend they’re dating to save face. But with a few conditions: Darcy must help Elle navigate her own overbearing family over the holidays and their arrangement expires on New Year’s Eve. The last thing they expect is to develop real feelings during a fake relationship.

But maybe opposites can attract when true love is written in the stars?

The Game and the Governess

B00GEEB578.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

The Game and the Governess by Kate Noble is $1.99! Sarah said she’s a big fan of Noble’s writing, whether it’s The Librarians or The Lizzie Bennet Diaries or historical romance. She reviewed this book back when it came out and gave it a B-. It’s not her favorite of Noble’s books, but she says it’s as thoughtful and as memorable:

The Game and the Governess is a thoughtful, intricate novel that deals very heavily with privilege, especially the privilege of the hero. The description that’s part of the cover copy says it best, I think: Trading Places meets Pride and Prejudice.

Trading Places meets Pride and Prejudice in this sexy, saucy romance—first in a new series from the author of YouTube sensation The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

Three friends. One Wager. Winner takes all.

The Earl—‘Lucky Ned’ Ashby. Pompous, preening, certain that he is beloved by everyone.
The Miller—John Turner. Proud, forced to work as the Earl’s secretary, their relationship growing ever more strained.
The Doctor—Rhys Gray. Practical, peace-loving, but caught in the middle of two warring friends.

Their wager is simple: By trading places with John Turner and convincing someone to fall in love with him, Ned plans to prove it’s him the world adores, not his money. Turner plans to prove him wrong.

But no one planned on Phoebe Baker, the unassuming governess who would fall into their trap, and turn everything on its head…

Reimagining Lovecraft

B071KZ1CDF.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Reimagining Lovecraft is $2.99! This is a collection of four sci-fi/fantasy novella from some great authors. I personally love Victor LaValle and Carrie reviewed the Kij Johnson novella, giving it an A. Honestly, I think $3 is worth the cost of LaValle and Johnson’s novellas alone.

Four new Lovecraftian tales told by four amazing talents.

Government agents, monstrous P.I.s, walkers of dreams and magical hustlers meet in the pages of this astonishing anthology of four novellas.

The Ballad of Black Tom — the Nebula Award-nominated novella from Victor LaValle.

The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe — the Nebula Award-nominated novella from Kij Johnson.

Hammers on Bone — from Cassandra Khaw, an amazing new voice on the dark fiction scene.

Agents of Dreamland — from the multi award-winning Caitlín R. Kiernan.
