Can't Wait Wednesday-Cross the Line

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Typically they are books that have not been released yet. This week I am sharing Cross the Line by C. C. Warrens. It is the fourth book in the Holly series and is set to release October 31, 2022. I absolutely loved, loved, loved the first three books in the Holly series and had NO idea a fourth one was releasing. This is absolutely a must-read series and one I would LOVE to own the paperbacks for (the first 3 are free on Kindle Unlimited, so if you have that, GO read them!!).

Top Ten Tuesday-Literary Escapes Challenge (States)

Happy Tuesday, my bookish friends!! I hope you all are doing well. Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Books Set In a Place I’d Love to Visit (real places or fictional). This is not how I think of books and I don't really have a list of places I'd love to visit, so I am tweaking today's topic. I am participating in The 2022 Literary Escapes Challenge Challenge hosted by Lori over at Escape with Dollycas Into A Good Book. So, for today's topic, I will be sharing 10 books and the state they are set in that I am still planning to read for this challenge. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and you can head over there to see what our other bookish friends are up to today.
