Happy almost August! I’m so excited that another month is almost gone, because that means I am one month closer to my wedding! I feel like the days are passing SOOO slowly, though at the same time I am somewhat glad they are because I am nowhere near finished planning. I honestly feel like I should write a post or two about wedding planning or how life is going right now for me, so we’ll see. For now, here’s a fun picture of me and my fiancé from our engagement shoot. (Isn’t he just the sweetest???)

Happy Tuesday! This week I am revisiting a weekly linkup that I really love but just haven’t been able to keep up with lately called Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Top Ten Tuesday is all about books and lists—two of my all-time favorite things, which is probably why I love it so much. This week’s top ten list is Top Ten Auto Buy Authors, meaning the top ten authors whose books we automatically buy, sometimes even without knowing anything about that particular book. When I normally talk about auto-buy authors, I think about authors whose new releases I immediately preorder, even if the synopsis hasn’t been released yet, because I cannot imagine not owning anything new they come out with. The funny thing is, because of this stupid thing called a budget and the fact that weddings are super, SUPER expensive, I haven’t preordered a book in quite some time.

However, I do still think about preordering books (I just can’t help myself), and I do immediately add new books to my TBR list all the time, so I think that counts for this kind of list. And believe me, if I could preorder books as often as I would like, I totally would. So, let me get started listing these authors for you! And for each author, I’m going to add an image of the cover of their most recent book that I have read, just because I love sharing about how awesome their books are.

Romance has never been actress Chloe Daschle’s forte—in life or on screen. But everyone knows who to call for a convincing death scene…and it might be killing her career.

When Chloe is given a peek at the script for an epic love story, she decides to take her destiny into her own hands and request an audition for the lead female role, Esther Kingsley. The compelling tale, inspired by family lore and a one-page letter from the colonial ancestor of scriptwriter Jesse Gates, just might break her out of this career-crippling rut. Jesse would rather write about romance than live through it after his past relationship ended in disaster. But once on-set together, the chemistry between Jesse and his leading lady is hard to deny.Centuries earlier, in the heart of the Revolutionary War, Hamilton Lightfoot and Esther Longfellow wrote their saga off the silver screen. Esther’s Loyalist father opposes any relationship with Hamilton, but Esther must face her beloved father’s disapproval and the dangers of war in order to convince Hamilton of their future together. Hamilton has loved Esther for years, and on the eve of battle pens the love letter she’s always wanted—something straight from the heart.

Happy July! I know this is a little later than I typically like to share about my featured releases for the next month, but the past few weeks have been super crazy. However, I do still want to talk about all of these fantastic novels! I have already read the first novel—Midnight on the River Grey—because I had the chance to be an influencer for it, and it was phenomenal. I highly recommend it, and will be reviewing it later this week, so keep an eye out for that! Other than that, check out all of these other books too, I’m sure they’re going to be great!

The Toughest Puzzle She’ll Have to Solve
May Be the Wishes of Her Own Heart

Three years into the Great War, England’s greatest asset is their intelligence network–field agents risking their lives to gather information, and codebreakers able to crack German telegrams for hints of the enemy’s plans. Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, she discovers for the first time in her life that numbers aren’t enough.

Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy who just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the quick and brainy Margot, but soon the dangers of the war draw ever closer. Margot and Drake will have to team up to save themselves from the very secrets that brought them together.

Happy Thursday! I know I have not been as consistent as I should at sharing things here on the blog but I am trying to remedy that! Wedding planning and starting a new job have taken me on a bit of a wild ride the past month, but things should be slowing down now. Hopefully that also means I will get to do more reading in the near future! I remember the days when I would average about 3 books a week, but this past month I only read 2 books in the whole month! However, they were 2 quality books, so I am happy to share about them with you!
