Welcome to the Sundays In Bed With… Meme! The meme that dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning? Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today! This meme is hosted by Midnight Book Girl.

This weekend I’m reading Call Me Maybe by Cara Bastone. I have never been an audiobook person. I don’t have the attention span for them. When I listen to podcasts, my mind wanders pretty easily (unless it’s funny enough to keep my attention) so I can’t imagine listening to an audiobook would go over well. But last night I decided to try it out and settled on this one. Holy fuck it’s so good. The story is so cute and the production that was put into this is perfection. I can’t wait to finish it today.

Title: Call Me Maybe

Author: Cara Bastone

Series: Love Lines #1

Publisher: Audible Originals

Release Date: October 20, 2020

Paint your toes. Pick up the wrong coffee and bagel order. Drive from Brooklyn to Jersey in traffic so slow you want to tear your hair out. It’s amazing all the useless things I can accomplish while on hold for three hours with customer service. Three hours when I should be getting the Date-in-a-Box website ready to launch at the big business expo in a few days. Except my shiny new website is glitching, and my inner rage-monster is ready to scorch some earth… when he finally picks up. Not the robot voice I expected but a real live human named Cal. He’s surprisingly helpful and really knows his stuff, even if he’s a little awkward…. in an adorable way.

And suddenly I’m flirting with him? And I think he’s flirting back.
And suddenly it’s been hours, and we’re still on the phone talking and ordering each other takeout while he trouble shoots my website.
And suddenly we’re exchanging numbers and sending texts and DMs every day, leaving voice mails (who even does that anymore?!).
And suddenly I’m wondering if it’s possible for two people fall in love at first talk.

Because I’m falling… hard.

This weekend I’m reading A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer. I have 50 pages left and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. I know a lot of people didn’t like the fact that this book wasn’t from Rhen/Harper’s POV but I am all for it. I loved Grey so much in the first book so to have a story from his perspective is perfection.

Rumored to be the heir, Grey has been on the run since he destroyed Lilith. He has no desire to challenge Rhen–until Karis Luran once again threatens to take Emberfall by force.

This weekend I’m reading Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. My friend and I were talking about how the Netflix show is coming out this month and we’ve decided to buddy read it together. I’m not sure how I feel about this book to be honest. I think I would have liked it more if I had read it back when it came out. But I still have plenty left to read so who knows, I might end up loving it.

Author: Leigh Bardugo

Series: The Grisha Trilogy #1

Alina Starkov doesn’t expect much from life. Orphaned by the Border Wars, she is sure of only one thing: her best friend, Mal–and her inconvenient crush on him. Until the day their army regiment enters the Fold, a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters. When their convoy is attacked and Mal is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power not even she knew existed.

Ripped from everything she knows, Alina is taken to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling. With Alina’s extraordinary power in his arsenal, he believes they can finally destory the Fold. Now Alina must find a way to master her untamed gift and somehow fit into her new life without Mal by her side. But nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. As the threat to the kingdom mounts and her dangerous attraction to the Darkling grows, Alina will uncover a secret that could tear her heart–and her country–in two.

This weekend I’m reading The Governess Game by Tessa Dare. I absolutely loved the first book in the series and I’m so excited to read Alexandra’s story. I’m only about 40 pages in, but so far so good. I have no doubt I’ll enjoy this one as much as The Duchess Deal.

Title: The Governess Game

Author: Tessa Dare

Series: Girl Meets Duke #2

Publisher: Avon

Release Date: August 28, 2018

The accidental governess.

After her livelihood slips through her fingers, Alexandra Mountbatten takes on an impossible post: transforming a pair of wild orphans into proper young ladies. However, the girls don’t need discipline. They need a loving home. Try telling that to their guardian, Chase Reynaud: duke’s heir in the streets and devil in the sheets. The ladies of London have tried—and failed—to make him settle down. Somehow, Alexandra must reach his heart… without risking her own.

The infamous rake.

Like any self-respecting libertine, Chase lives by one rule: no attachments. When a stubborn little governess tries to reform him, he decides to give her an education—in pleasure. That should prove he can’t be tamed. But Alexandra is more than he bargained for: clever, perceptive, passionate. She refuses to see him as a lost cause. Soon the walls around Chase’s heart are crumbling… and he’s in danger of falling, hard.

This weekend I’m reading The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare. I’ve been hearing amazing things about the books for years so I finally decided to pick it up and it was the best decision of my life. It is so GOOD. It’s pretty much everything I’ve ever wanted in a historical romance. And it just proves that marriage of convenience will always be the superior trope. I have about 120 pages left and the plan is to finish it all today. I can’t wait!

Title: The Duchess Deal

Author: Tessa Dare

Series: Girl Meets Duke #1

Publisher: Avon

Release Date: August 22, 2017

Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do.

His terms are simple:

– They will be husband and wife by night only.
– No lights, no kissing.
– No questions about his battle scars.
– Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again.

But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own:

– They will have dinner together every evening.
– With conversation.
– And unlimited teasing.
– Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…
