Bookbugworld’s Spotlight Thursday | 17 June 2021
Welcome to another Thursday spotlight post. This is a weekly segment where I will introduce you to some interesting books that got my attention and would like to read in the near future. This week we have three books in the spotlight. Without any further delays, let’s take a look at them.
1)Mr. Nice Guy by Belinda Williams
I found the book while browsing the NetGalley library. The cover itself got my immediate attention. I am a fan of illustrated covers especially when it comes to romantic comedies.
NICE GUYS CAN PLAY DIRTY TOO . . .
“Give me a week. Seven days and seven nights. I’ll show you what it’s like to be with a nice guy.”
Chelsea’s housemate Tom is tired of her complaining about her boyfriends. Arrogant, sexy, irresistible—bad boys are basically Chelsea’s M.O.
Pretty much everything that Tom is not. He’s dependable and sweet. He’s also kind of hot in a cute, unthreatening way. His offer surprises Chelsea. He’s right . . . she’s never really given a nice guy a chance before. And now she’s curious. Hell, it might even be fun.
There’s just one rule: this isn’t a friends with benefits arrangement. Except Chelsea never imagined nice guys could play so dirty . . .
Mr. Nice Guy is the first book in the Pierce Brothers series featuring four brothers who are determined to be equally as nice as they are naughty.
Published by BWrite Publishers, the book comes out on 28th June, 2021.
2)Queentide by Donna Fisher
The second book in my spotlight is Queentide. Written by Donna Fisher and published by SheSaw Press , the book comes out on 21st June, 2021. The Gileadean premise is my main draw to the book. It is what made it stand out in the NetGalley library.
Australia in 2026 is not an easy place to be a woman.
Authoritarianism has crept into the country and women have lost their rights and voices. But Bodie and her militant granddaughter, Insley, are gambling everything to return them.
They have set up a radical feminist group, Queentide, to steal the upcoming election and make Aboriginal politician, Kathleen, the next Prime Minister of an all-women Government. The ex-wife of a senior Minister, Lilith, vows to help them by sharing explosive secrets that will guarantee Queentide’s success.
But two things might stop them. A state-backed, violent men’s rights group and a bitter power struggle that threatens to tear Queentide apart.
Can the women harness the storm and smash the patriarchy? Or will Queentide wreck itself?
I am really excited to dive into this women’s fiction political drama.
3)Geraldine Vine’s Red Suitcase by Jane Riley
The final book in my spotlight is again a NetGalley pick, Geraldine Vine’s Red Suitcase by Jane Riley. The book is published by Lake Union Publishing and will come out on 29th June, 2021.
His dying wish was to set her free. So why does she feel so trapped?
Jack had two dying wishes: that his wife scatter his ashes somewhere ‘exotic’, and that she not give up on life once he was gone. He intended to spur her on to new adventures, but despite clinging to her red suitcase, Geraldine Verne hasn’t left the house for three months.
It takes an accident for Geri to accept help from her friends, but when Meals on Wheels arrive she is mortified. Yet heartbroken volunteer Lottie brings with her more than cottage pie and custard. Like Geri, she too is struggling to cut loose.
As a gloriously unlikely friendship blossoms, Geraldine begins to feel a long-lost spark of life and a newfound confidence. Perhaps what both women needed most, after all, was each other.
I enjoy reading female friendship stories. And this one sounds particularly heartwarming. No doubt, I will be reading it soon.
So, there we go. Those are my bookish spotlight for the week. I intend to new bring new books that aren’t common in the bookish community. Hope you find some good ones here. If you’re familiar with these books , let me know in the comments how you feel about them.
Happy Reading everyone!!!!
