Lia Louis recommends
The Wake-Up Call (2023)
Beth O'Leary
"Oh my goodness, I have not enjoyed a book like The Wake-Up Call in a long time! I could not stop reading, and when I wasn't reading it, I couldn't stop thinking about it! It was like having a crush! Equal parts heart-warming, touching, sharp, and sexy, Beth O'Leary just gets better and better."
Seven Exes (2023)
Lucy Vine
"Lucy Vine has knocked it out of the park with Seven Exes. I couldn't put it down! It's so smart and funny, and just warts-and-all levels of real! A nostalgic, comforting romcom. I loved it!"
The Lost Ticket (2022)
The Girl on the 88 Bus

Freya Sampson
"The Girl on the 88 Bus is a gorgeous story that's equal parts heartbreaking and heartwarming. A reminder that love is unwavering and ageless and will always carry us through. Freya Sampson is a brilliant writer."
