Top Off Your TBR: February 2021 Edition

Ah, February. It's a junk month for weather up here, but it's a big birthday month in my family so between that and the books I think I'll pull through.

Now that Inauguration is out of the way, my activist groups are ramping up our 2021 plans and I'm choosing fierce hope over the despair that keeps trying to take over.

I'm wishing you a fierce, hopeful, and healthy year.

Review: The Ex Talk, by Rachel Lynn Solomon

The Ex Talk very much appealed to the NPR nerd in me, so if you like romance and you like public radio, you probably don't need to read the rest of this review.

Review: I Want to Be Where the Normal People Are, by Rachel Bloom

Rachel Bloom's brand of humor isn't for everyone, but if it's for you, you'll love I Want to Be Where the Normal People Are. Fans of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend like me will appreciate the blend of gross, awkward, honest and er, musical? humor contained in these essays, screen-plays and journal entries by a young Rachel.

By now maybe you've noticed that I've been on something of a gothic romance kick lately. Maybe you don't follow my reading that closely. This is expected, you are a real human with better things to do. (Unless you're Google crawling the internet, in which case hiiii robot overlords.)

Review: When a Rogue Meets His Match, by Elizabeth Hoyt

After a lengthy--for the romance genre--break following the first in the Greycourt series, Elizabeth Hoyt returns with When a Rogue Meets His Match. I'm not sure why this series is received less favorably than the Maiden Lane series, but to me the hallmarks of her historical romances are still there.  Her writing still pulls the emotions out of me and her plots are complex and action-packed.

Review: Where Dreams Descend, by Janella Angeles

When I heard that Where Dreams Descend was being pitched as a gothic circus fantasy romance, I was intrigued. Then I saw the cover and I swear I gasped. The cover blurb from Claire Legrand says it's perfect for fans of Caraval and The Night Circus and while that is absolutely true, I got some pretty strong Phantom of the Opera vibes as well.
