F/F ROMANCE BOOKS ON MY TBR

It’s winter here in Australia… and that usually means I’m in the mood for reading books that feature some kind of romance. I can say for most of June, this has been so true. I’ve been ploughing my way through all kinds of romance books and participating in romance readathons.

Despite reading obligations and TBRs… here are some of recent romance additions to my TBR that happen to feature central F/F relationships that I am so excited to get too!

Shane has been doing college all wrong. Pre-med, stellar grades, and happy parents…sounds ideal—but Shane’s made zero friends, goes home every weekend, and romance…what’s that?

Her life has been dorm, dining hall, class, repeat. Time’s a ticking, and she needs a change—there’s nothing like moving to a new country to really mix things up. Shane signs up for a semester abroad in London. She’s going to right all her college mistakes: make friends, pursue boys, and find adventure!

Easier said than done. She is soon faced with the complicated realities of living outside her bubble, and when self-doubt sneaks in, her new life starts to fall apart.

Shane comes to find that, with the right amount of courage and determination one can conquer anything. Throw in some fate and a touch of magic—the possibilities are endless.

Take the Lead is sizzling romance between a Puerto Rican professional dancer and Mountain man reality star who find love on a reality show centred around a dance competition. As all budding romances go between a bubbly female lead and a brooding love interest, this book hits all the beats you expect a good romance novel to hit. It’s flirty, fun, with just the right amount of smut. But Alexis Daria takes this book to the next level and does more than what’s expected of the average new adult novel. With important conversations about Latina women in the entertainment industry being type casted and over-sexualised, this book features many elements that make it an exceptional and fresh addition to the genre.

A century ago, scientists theorised that a habitable planet existed in a nearby solar system. Today, ten astronauts will leave a dying Earth to find it. Four are decorated veterans of the 20th century’s space-race. And six are teenagers, graduates of the exclusive Dalton Academy, who’ve been in training for this mission for most of their lives.

It will take the team 23 years to reach Terra-Two. Twenty-three years spent in close quarters. Twenty-three years with no one to rely on but each other. Twenty-three years with no rescue possible, should something go wrong. And something always goes wrong.
