Book Tour: The Decoy Girlfriend by Lillie Vale | Spotlight

Welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours Book Tour for The Decoy Girlfriend by Lillie Vale! This sounds really good and my type of RomCom: fake-dating, look-alike/doppelgänger, bookish main character (a writer)! Oddly, these last few months have been the summer of horror since that’s all that’s been calling to me (horrors/thrillers/mysteries), which meant my RomCom reading came to a slow (almost hault!). I’m hoping to pick it up soon though, because it really does sound addictive and good! Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the tour schedule for other content creators links.

Recommendations: Five Amateur Sleuth with Social Platforms

I seem to be on a roll: Five Adult RomComs, Nine LGBTQIA+ Reads, & Five Spooky Middle Grades. Now I’m back to recommend another five books.

In release date order, here are my top 5 (and 1 honourable mention) anticipated books for August 2022.

Goodreads Synopsis:

The city of Elendhaven sulks on the edge of the ocean. Wracked by plague, abandoned by the South, stripped of industry and left to die. But not everything dies so easily. A thing without a name stalks the city, a thing shaped like a man, with a dark heart and long pale fingers yearning to wrap around throats. A monster who cannot die. His frail master sends him out on errands, twisting him with magic, crafting a plan too cruel to name, while the monster’s heart grows fonder and colder and more cunning.

These monsters of Elendhaven will have their revenge on everyone who wronged the city, even if they have to burn the world to do it.
