Currently Reading: Lies & Letters by Ashtyn Newbold

It's been a while since I shared a currently reading post and that's mostly because I haven't read in a long time! I kind of got stuck in a rut with a book I didn't love in January-April (that's how long it took me to get through it because I just didn't like it) and have recently got back into reading and I'm loving it! I have so many books I want to read and I've recently read quite a bit which has been awesome!

I come to you today with one of my favorite new authors (a cousin of family friends of ours) named Ashtyn Newbold. She writes beautiful, compelling, captivating, heartwarming novels in the Regency era which is one of my favorites! The characters in her books are always so endearing and I end up loving all of them. Every last one!

Her latest book, called Lies & Letters is about a girl named Charlotte who is thoroughly obnoxious at first. I've never read a novel with a main character who I disliked so much from the beginning. As the story unfolds and Charlotte is faced with trial after trial, it was so fun to see this character grow through these experiences. The author is witty, clever, and creates stories that I will read over and over again. If you love romance novels or the Regency era or both, give this one a try! Her other novel, Mischief & Manors, may be my favorite out of the two but they are both truly fabulous books!

*I received both books free from the author and this did not affect my opinion in any way.*

What are YOU currently reading? I'm in need of some more books for this summer!

  1. Sounds like a book I would enjoy, will be keeping my eyes out for it! I just read Man's search for meaning by Viktor E. Frankl, a jewish man who writes about life in Nazi death camps and lessons of spiritual survival. I definitely recommend it, if you haven't already read it that is. Not a fun type of read but so full of raw experience and lots of important spiritual/thought provoking wisdom. I'm the worst at describing plots in a short way, but it's really good!

    1. Yay! I love book recommendations! That totally sounds like something I would like. Thank you for sharing, Alice! Have you read The Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly? I posted about it a while ago under my Currently Reading tap on my sidebar and Man's Search for Meaning sounds similar. I bet you'd like it!
