My birthday was just a few weeks ago and for my birthday I got a lot of gift cards, which I love. I like gift cards because this way I can really pick something I need or want. One of those gift cards was a gift card for an online and they also sell books. So of course, I bought a few e-books with that gift card. These are the books I bought.
Books I bought in May
- Under one roof – Ali Hazelwood
As an environmental engineer, Mara knows all about the delicate nature of ecosystems. They require balance. And leaving the thermostat alone. And not stealing someone else’s food. And other rules Liam, her detestable big-oil lawyer of a roommate, knows nothing about. Okay, sure, technically she’s the interloper. Liam was already entrenched in his aunt’s house like some glowering grumpy giant when Mara moved in, with his big muscles and kissable mouth just sitting there on the couch tempting respectable scientists to the dark side…but Helena was her mentor and Mara’s not about to move out and give up her inheritance without a fight. | Buy on Amazon
- Book lovers – Emily Henry
Nora Stephens’ life is books—she’s read them all—and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby. Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sister’s trip away—with visions of a small town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute. | Buy on Amazon

5. 13 minutes – Sarah Pinborough
Natasha doesn’t remember how she ended up in the icy water that night, but she does know this—it wasn’t an accident, and she wasn’t suicidal.

Recently divorced and on the verge of bankruptcy, Dahlia Woodson is ready to reinvent herself on the popular reality competition show Chef’s Special.

7. Life’s too short – Abby Jimenez
When Vanessa Price quit her job to pursue her dream of travelling the globe, she wasn’t expecting to gain millions of YouTube followers who shared her joy of seizing every moment. For her, living each day to its fullest isn’t just a motto. Her mother and sister never saw the age of 30, and Vanessa doesn’t want to take anything for granted. But after her half-sister suddenly leaves Vanessa in the custody of her baby daughter, life goes from “daily adventure” to “next-level bad” (now with bonus baby vomit in her hair). The last person Vanessa expects to show up offering help is the hot lawyer next door, Adrian Copeland. After all, she barely knows him. No one warned her that he was the Secret Baby Tamer or that she’d be spending a whole lot of time with him and his geriatric Chihuahua. Now she’s feeling things she’s vowed not to feel. Because the only thing worse than falling for Adrian is finding a little hope for a future she may never see. | Buy on Amazon
8. After the rain – Jo Watson
Stormy-Rain and Marcus could not be more different: she’s a free-spirited, rainbow-haired hippie; he wears a suit and over-shines his already too-shiny shoes. She believes in auras; he’s governed by logic and doesn’t believe in Fate. But Fate believes in them…
So what happens when their worlds collide – and they are forced to embark on an epic road trip to catch a plane to a wedding on the other side of the world?
The clock is ticking…and they’re seriously ticking each other off. But Stormy and Marcus are about to discover just how thin the line between love and hate really is. | Buy on Amazon
