Lisa’s Looking Foward To #24 – July 30th and August 1st 2019

Posted July 24, 2019 by Lisa Mandina in / 24 Comments

Back to joining up with the Waiting on Wednesday Posts, and the Can’t
Wait Wednesday posts hosted by Wishful Endings.  This week there are three on my list, two for July 30th, and one for August 1st.

From my ARC list for July 30th:

This sounds like a lot of fun right now, a fun romance perfect for summer or just for what I’m doing these days!

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

Swipe right for love. Swipe left for disaster.

By
day, Mel Strickland is an underemployed helpdesk tech at a startup
incubator, Hatch, where she helps entitled brogrammers—”Hatchlings”—who
can’t even fix their own laptops, but are apparently the next wave of
startup geniuses. And by night, she goes on bad dates with misbehaving
dudes she’s matched with on the ubiquitous dating app, Fluttr.

But
after one dick pic too many, Mel has had it. Using her brilliant coding
skills, she designs an app of her own, one that allows users to log
harrassers and abusers in online dating space. It’s called JerkAlert,
and it goes viral overnight.

Mel is suddenly in way over her
head. Worse still, her almost-boyfriend, the dreamy Alex Hernandez—the
only non-douchey guy at Hatch—has no idea she’s the brains behind the
app. Soon, Mel is faced with a terrible choice: one that could destroy
her career, love life, and friendships, or change her life forever.

With my love of Outlander, this just fits right in.  Seems like there are some good romance books coming out this week!

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:


The timeless romance, soaring passion—and gorgeous men—of Scotland
comes to modern-day America. And the rules of love will never be the
same…

Isabel Buchanan is fiery, funny, and never at a loss for
words. But she is struck speechless when her mother returns from a trip
to Scotland with a six-foot-tall, very handsome souvenir. Izzy’s mother
is so infatuated by the fellow that Izzy has to plan their annual
Highland Games all by herself. Well, not completely by herself. The
Highlander’s strapping young nephew has come looking for his uncle…

Alasdair
Blackmoor has never seen a place as friendly as this small Georgia
town—or a girl as brilliant and beguiling as Izzy. Instead of saving his
uncle, who seems to be having a lovely time, Alasdair decides he’d
rather help Izzy with the Highland Games. Show her how to dance like a
Highlander. Drink like a Highlander. And maybe, just maybe, fall in love
with a Highlander. But when the games are over, where do they go from
here?

From my ARC list for August 1st:

I’m a little surprised I didn’t get an ARC of this one, as Sourcebooks usually sends me all their books it seems.  Or a lot of the time they do.  But it sounds like a creepy one! 

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

The Blair Witch Project
meets Imaginary Girls in this story of codependent sisterhood, the
struggle to claim one’s own space, and the power of secrets

Sixteen-year-old
Skye is done playing the knight in shining armor for her insufferable
younger sister, Deirdre. Moving across the country seems like the
perfect chance to start over.

In their isolated new neighborhood,
Skye manages to fit in, but Deirdre withdraws from everyone, becoming
fixated on the swampy woods behind their house and building monstrous
sculptures out of sticks and bones.

Then Deirdre disappears.

And
when something awful comes scratching at Skye’s window in the middle of
the night, claiming she’s the only one who can save Deirdre, Skye knows
she will stop at nothing to bring her sister home.

  1. I liked How to Hack a Heartbreak. It was really funny and relatable. I am thinking of downloading Highlander, but I feel like I have too many review books right now. It sounds great though.

  2. How to Hack a Heartb read sounds like a fun story! Here there are Monsters sounds creeptastic and right up my alley! Great picks Lisa 🙂
