Hello friends and fellow book lovers! Welcome to another week of blog posts and this week, I’m doing a post about books that I’ve #bookedged and ended up really loving. This is actually a term I learned on Bookstagram and it was coined by Amanda from Talk_About_Swoon who has an incredible romance bookstagram.
The entire book is that you wait to read a book until you either absolutely have to or you just wait because you know you’re going to love it.
1. From Lukov With Love
The first book that came to mind for me was From Lukov With Love by Mariana Zapata. Since I saw this book on sale, I knew I wanted to get it since it was cheap. However, it’s been sitting on my Kindle since September 27, 2020 and I finally picked it up almost a year ago. This was such an incredible slow-burn romance but I feel like I had a valid reason for waiting since her books are just SO long. Either way, I loved it so I’m annoyed I waited almost a whole year to read it.
2. Act Your Age, Eve Brown
The next book I’ve #bookedged is Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert. I’m caught up on her entire backlist so I really wanted to wait on this. I actually waited an entire month after its release until I read it. I ended up loving it so much and I’m sad I waited so long to read it. I am annoyed that I have nothing else of hers left to read, though.
3. If She Says Yes
The next book I did this with was If She Says Yes by Tasha L. Harrison. This book is an age-gap interracial romance I used for #SpringIntoLoveBingo, I think? Either way, I waited to read this as it was my last spot on the bingo board. However, I ended up absolutely adoring it. It’s such a beautiful yet sexy story. Ugh, easily one of my biggest bookish regrets is waiting to read this for so long.
4. Only When It’s Us
The next book I waited for SO long to read is Only When It’s Us by Chloe Liese. This is a book I waited to read because of the hype and I’m so annoyed with myself. While this isn’t my favorite book of the series, this series quickly became a new favorite. I especially loved how emotional this book was and how adorable the romance was. Definitely more than a little annoyed that I drug my feet so much on this one.
5. Make A Scene
The final book that I #bookedged was Make A Scene by Mimi Grace. I saw this cover back when it was released and immediately preordered it. When it finally came out in September 2020, I was so excited to pick it up and then didn’t. Rather, I waited until the start of 2021 to finally pick it up. It ended up being a five-star read so I’m mad I decided to wait but I’m also happy I finally gave in and read it.
