What I’ve Been Reading Lately: February 2023

February has been such a good month of reading! While I admittedly haven’t read a YES THIS IS A FAVORITE BOOK yet, two of the following are definitely in my top 3 favorites of 2023 so far and another was a highly anticipated 2023 read. 

On a Night Like This by Lindsey Kelk – I read Lindsey Kelk’s The Christmas Wish in December & I knew I wanted to read more by her in the new year. I know British romances usually have more wit and sarcasm, bu Lindsey Kelk’s books are so laugh out loud funny with some of the one-liners. On a Night Like This was no exception and it should honestly be part of a starter kit for contemporary romances because it was THAT good. The book follows a woman who’s had a series of temporary assistant gigs and lands a high paying role as an A-list singer’s assistant aboard a private yacht on the way to a charity ball. On a Night Like This felt like two stories in one – the first half of the book follows Fran’s role as an assistant on the yacht and the second half follows her Cinderella like night at the Crystal Ball where she falls for a handsome stranger – but I love how the story came together and made for the perfect happily ever after. So looking forward to picking up more of her work! My Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

February 2023 Anticipated Releases 

One of my favorite things to help me get through the winter blues is looking forward to new books coming out. Although I don’t have a ton of books included below,  I’m excited that February 2023 contains new books from some of my favorite authors of last year. 

Just My Type by Falon Ballard | RD: Feb. 7 – I, like many, loved Falon Ballard’s debut last year, Lease on Love, and I heard that readers will enjoy her latest if you’re a Beach Read fan.

I Have Some Questions by Rebecca Makkai | RD: Feb. 21 – I haven’t read a book by Rebecca Makkai before, but I’ve been seeing so much early hype. The book follows a film professor and podcaster who is invited to teach a course at her former boarding school and is set to figure out the murder of her roommate.

Best Served Hot by Amanda Elliot | RD: Feb. 21– I loved Amanda Elliot’s debut, Sadie on a Plate. Best Served Hot is a NYC enemies to lovers romance between 2 food reviews.

Things We Hide From the Light (Knockemout Out #2) by Lucy Score | RD: Feb. 21 – Again like many, I LOVED Things We Never Got Over last year and can’t wait until I read the companion novel.
