Old Favorites

Sometimes you want to read something new and other times you want to get in the bubble bath with an old favorite.  Here are a few of my old favorites that I've read several times:

Why I love it?  
Harry is a kick butt heroine that can ride a horse.  The world-building is amazing.  The kelar (magic) is original and compelling.  And the romance is subtle. 

Why I love it?
This book was originally published as two books, but combined in this edition.  Mel is hotheaded and impulsive.  She's strong-willed and often makes mistakes, but is essentially goodhearted.  Even though she is small and not a good fighter, she manages to play a key role in a revolution and a rebellion.  

Why I love it?
Even though the main character is naive and makes some mistakes, she is strong and feisty.  And she also happens to be a seer.  How cool is that?  The hero in this is one of my favorites penned in fiction.  

Why I love it?
Coriel is not your typical heroine.  She is the baseborn daughter of a Halsing and she lives with her grandmother who is a wise woman.  Corie's greatest ambition is to be a witch, but every summer she goes to Castle Auburn to spend time with her half sister who is engaged to the prince.  Corie learns so much about herself and others and ultimately risks all to do what is right.  I LOVE the hero, but because it's a twist, I won't name him.  But he is wonderful.  

What are some of your old favorites?  Feel free to share them in the comments.

The Invention of Sophie Carter

THE INVENTION OF SOPHIE CARTER  
iscoming out July 14, 2020 from Swoon Reads / Macmillan
1851. Bounced from one begrudging relative to another their whole lives, orphaned identical twins Sophie and Mariah Carter have always relied on each other for love and support, even though the sisters couldn't be more different.
Brash Sophie wants to be an inventor, and demure Mariah wants to be an artist. Both long to visit London for the summer—Sophie to see the Queen’s Great Exhibition and Mariah to study the world’s finest collection of paintings. But when their cantankerous aunt answers their letter pleading for a place to stay, she insists she only has time and room to spare for one of them.
So, Mariah and Sophie hatch a clever scheme: They will travel to London together and take turns playing the part of "Sophie".
At first the plan runs like clockwork. But as the girls avoid getting caught by increasingly narrow margins and two handsome gentlemen—both of whom think they’re fal…

A Royal Christmas Quandary

Readers looking for a light, fun read full of holiday mischief will be delighted by Samantha Hastings' A Royal Christmas Quandary, perfect for fans of A Christmas Prince.
When you spend Christmas in a castle, anything is possible.
1860. Lady Alexandrina Gailey is looking forward to a cozy holiday at Windsor Castle with her best friend, Princess Alice, and her long-time crush, Lord George Worthington. But Drina's plans are all but dashed when Alice's parents, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, declare that Alice must choose one of two royal princes to become engaged to before Christmas.
There's just one problem: George, a junior member of the Foreign Office, has accidentally misplaced one of the princes.
Together, Drina and George scour the town of Windsor for the missing prince, desperately hoping to deliver him to the royal dinner party with the queen and king none the wiser. They might just need a royal Christmas miracle to pull it off.
