MEMORABLE TITLES THAT START WITH “W”

What Happened is Hillary Clinton’s version of what exactly happened during the 2016 American presidential election, and it’s a very powerful novel. She not only talks about Trump, the Russian influence and the FBI, but also discusses what its like being a woman in politics and her reputation throughout her career. Wolfsong is an amazing m/m novel about werewolves — it’s a romance where basically every character is queer and I highly recommend it! Widdershins is the first book in the Whyborne and Griffon series that I binged last year, and it’s a little gem of a series, featuring a lovely m/m romance and paranormal shin-dings. When the Moon Was Ours is a gorgeous magical realism novel about a trans boy and a mysterious girl, and some weird witchy sisters — definitely recommend this one, because the writing is so beautiful.

Wanted, A Gentleman is an adorable m/m historical romance between two men who are attempting to rescue a young woman who is about to elope with a man who wants to steal her fortune. It’s tender and lovely and I want everyone to read all of KJ Charles’ books! The Wicker King is a strange, alluring novel about mental illness, friendship and romance — and what one boy will do for his best friend. Definitely memorable. Words in Deep Blue is an Australian novel about grief, ex-best friends and finding your way — it’s sad and lovely and I cried a lot reading it. Why Not Me is a collection of essays by Mindy Kaling, and there’s one essay in there that is so amazing, I cried from happiness.

 

BOOKS STARTING WITH “W” ON MY TBR

Wanna Bet? is the second book in the Dirty British Romance series and I adored the first one, so I know I’ll love this too! Wayward Son looks like it will be the sequel to Carry On coming out sometime this year! Super keen for it! I got Wolf Hall for Christmas a few years back and still haven’t read it, although I know I’ll love it because it’s about Thomas Cromwell, an advisor to Henry VIII. Walk on Earth a Stranger is a Western historical YA book about the gold rush, and hell yeah! I need to find time to actually read it!

      I love both of Mindy Kaling’s books! They’re amazing, you’ll definitely love them!

      I loved What Happened. It’s a great look into the 2016 election, but she also discusses some other events in her life — it’s great.

      Thank you lovely 😘
