Top 5 Wednesday: ARCs on the Top of My TBR

This week’s Top 5 Wednesday, hosted by the Goodreads group, is: Top of Your TBR. I’ve adapted it a little bit to ARCs on the Top of my TBR.


1. What the Wind Knows by Amy Harmon. After trying to catch up on all of Harmon’s backlist, I’ve discovered a couple of her books are ones that I don’t really care for, so I’m just a little nervous about this since historical fiction isn’t really my thing anymore. But I do have faith that even if it’s not my favorite Harmon book, it will still be good.


2. Fumbled (Playbook #2) by Alexa Martin. Intercepted was a surprise hit for me, so even though this book has some tropes that are not my favorite, I’m still very excited to read it.


3. The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary. This book just very recently got on my radar and it sounds right up my alley. I love stories that involve notes/texts/e-mails.


4. Passion on Park Avenue (Central Park Pact #1) by Lauren Layne. I am always excited to read a Lauren Layne book and I have high hopes for this one. I actually read a review that was complaining that the love scenes were not as graphic as other Layne books have been, but that’s a really big plus in my book and made me even more interested in it.


5. The Escape Room by Megan Goldin. I’ve seen a lot of hype for this one and I’m really hoping it lives up to expectations.

What books are on the top of your TBR?

  1. I have read one Amy Harmon book, Moses, and it’s one of my favorites of all time. That being said, that book completely wrecked me. I don’t think I have ever cried so hard while reading a book, so while I love how Harmon tells a story, I don’t know if I can read any more of her books.

  2. Knowing how you felt about From Sand and Ash, I think you’re going to feel the same way with What the Wind Knows. It’s a really slow book with a LOT of history. Just warning you! It is excellent and worth reading, but you may want to break it up with something lighter.

    I love that Passion is light on the sexy times…I may have to read it. These days I prefer contemporary romance with less of the sex scenes. I got a copy off Netgalley, but I was kinda waiting to see what others thought of it. I’ll let you read it first and see what you think. 😉

    • I was afraid of that 😦 Maybe I’ll save the Lauren Layne book to read in parallel with it, as I’m sure that will be fun and peppy. Speaking of which, I am happy to read it first haha. I find it hard to take a book seriously once it goes into extended graphic scenes, so I am always happy when there’s not a lot of it in Romance books.

  3. I am also excited to read Amy Harmon and LL’s books! (Although, Brandie just scared me a bit.) I just finished Fumbled and loved it. It was just as good as the first book without all of the hashtags.

    • Let’s hope the Amy Harmon-ess of the writing makes up the abundance of historical stuff! I’m so happy to hear you loved Fumbled! I didn’t mind the hashtags in the first book as much as you did, but I’m glad to see that it’s not going to be a “staple” in all her books.

  4. I really like Lauren Layne and am happy to hear her newest is less graphic. I was happy when Christina Lauren’s books became less graphic because I really like her and I prefer less content in my stories. I am looking forward to Peter Swanson’s Before She Knew Him and The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren.

    • I definitely agree with you regarding Christina Lauren’s books. I think I read just one of her older books and it basically felt like erotica to me. They still have more than I prefer, but it’s toned down so much that I don’t feel gross reading it. I am also looking forward to those two books!
