Carrie Soto Is Back

Taylor Jenkins Reid

Premium Fiction

Fiction

Hardback

Carrie Soto is fierce, and her determination to win at any cost has not made her popular. By the time Carrie retires from tennis, she is the best player the world has ever seen. But six years after her retirement, Carrie finds herself sitting in the stands of the 1994 US Open, watching her record be taken from her by a brutal, stunning, British player named Nicki Chan.




LoveMyRead Review

Following on from the New York Times bestsellers Malibu Rising and Daisy Jones and the Six, Taylor Jenkins Reid's latest release kicks off our September guest curation with another irresistible slice of escapist drama. This is Jenkins Reid's most vulnerable, emotional story yet and we couldn't put it down.

Dele Weds Destiny

Tomi Obaro

Premium Fiction

Fiction

Hardback

Three women. Three decades. The friendship of a lifetime. Zainab, Funmi and Enitan first meet at University in northern Nigeria, all learning how to become themselves. It's an experience that binds the three very different women together. When Enitan moves to New York to elope with a white man, Zainab and Funmi are left behind, with drastically different fortunes.


Taylor Jenkins Reid Review

I'm a sucker for books about female friendships and mother-daughter relationships. This one, featuring the stories of Funmi, Zainab, and Enitan — three friends reuniting in Lagos when one of their daughter's is to be married — is meaningful, complicated, and rendered with such heart.

A Lady's Guide to Fortune-Hunting

Sophie Irwin

Premium Fiction

Fiction

Hardback

The season is about to begin - and there's not a minute to lose. Kitty Talbot needs a fortune. Or rather, she needs a husband who has a fortune. This is 1818 after all, and only men have the privilege of seeking their own riches.


Taylor Jenkins Reid Review

This book is one of the most fun, swoony Regency romances I've read in a long time. It is cute and sweet — but it also has some real teeth. Hands down one of my favorite books of the year.

Skye Falling

Mia McKenzie

Fiction

Paperback

A woman who's used to going solo discovers that there's one relationship she can't run away from. Twenty-six and broke, Skye didn't think twice before selling her eggs and happily pocketing the cash. Now approaching forty, Skye moves through life entirely--and unrepentantly--on her own terms. But then a twelve-year-old girl shows up during one of Skye's brief visits to her hometown of Philadelphia, and tells Skye that she's "her egg."

Taylor Jenkins Reid Review

Skye Falling is one of those books where I fell hard for this mess of a protagonist and I was deeply invested in seeing her find her way through the world. It's what great fiction should be: a chance to meet a character who drives you crazy and hits you right in the heart.

Taylor Jenkins Reid Review

I keep pushing this book into everyone's hands! It is one of my favorite books of 2021. It's sexy and glamorous and romantic and funny. What’s not to love?

In Case of Emergency

Poorna Bell

Premium Fiction

Fiction

Hardback

Waking up in hospital after a dangerous accident, Bel realises she should reconnect with the most important people from her past. Bel's HR record still lists her ex as her next of kin, but she can't think of a less appropriate person to nurse her back to health. But who can she turn to in a crisis? Over-invested parents? A sister whose life has turned out perfectly? Friends she exchanges dating woes with over cocktails?

Taylor Jenkins Reid Review

It is a joy to read a debut that has such heart, humor, and pathos that the main character starts to feel like a friend you can't help but root for. Poorna Bell's lively Bel Kumar is exactly that. This story, her journey of trying to reconnect with her friends and family after a freak accident, is a pleasure.

Mexican Gothic

Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Fiction

Paperback

An electrifying chiller that plays with the conventions and form of the gothic thriller quite brilliantly. He is trying to poison me. You must come for me, Noemi. You have to save me. When glamorous socialite Noemi Taboada receives a frantic letter from her newlywed cousin begging to be rescued from a mysterious doom, it's clear something is desperately amiss. Catalina has always had a flair for the dramatic, but her claims that her husband is poisoning her and her visions of restless ghosts seem remarkable, even for her.

Taylor Jenkins Reid Review

If you want a book that is going to grip you early on and keep you turning the pages, blowing your mind, getting as wild and out there as possible, look no further. I found it unputdownable.
