Top Shelf Reads: July 2018

Posted June 22, 2018 by Francesca in Best Of, Front Page, Under the Covers / 7 Comments

Each of us girls have very definite tastes here at Under the Covers. We know what we like and we get excited about sharing this with you. We can’t help but share when our favourite books are coming out and want to share the joy with as many people as we can. And this is one of the ways we want to do it. Each month we will give you our pick of the bunch, the cream of the crop, the top shelf books! Basically, the ones that we are just itching for you to get your hands on. The kind of books where the year wait is always worth it; where you may have drawn plans to go a little Kathy Bates, but with less sledgehammer action and more hot cups of tea and custard creams – we don’t want to scare the muse away after all. These are the books we are just dying for you to read next month!

Top Shelf Reads: July 2018
All Your Perfects
by Colleen Hoover

BOOK INFO


Released: July 17th 2018
Pages: 320
 

Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

Well guys, it seems this month I’m all alone here!  While it may look like we don’t have much to recommend to you, don’t be fooled by the quantity and think instead of QUALITY.  I haven’t found many 5 star books this year (really, there’s been one so far and a few close 4.5s).  And then this book came around.  I’m always highly anticipating reading a Colleen Hoover book because I’ve really enjoyed her writing in the past.  But at the same time I dread it because I’ve also had some misses from her.  ALL YOUR PERFECTS is one of the winners.  I haven’t found a ton of stories about troubled marriages but when I do and they’re done well I gobble them up.  This one was especially well done and it dealt with not only with a marriage that’s having issues, but also a personal struggle that our heroine is going through.  I don’t want to give anything more than that away.  Suffice it to say it was so easy to identify with Quinn, to feel her pain, to not know how you would react in her shoes.  Maybe it would be the same.  And then there’s Graham, really the perfect hero even through his mistakes.  I fell in love with him in the flashbacks and then fell more in love with him through the pain of their current situation.  This isn’t a book of flowers and happiness, although there is a happy ending.  Reading most of this book felt like an open wound but I wouldn’t trade a second of it.  It was beautifully written and a captivating story.  And yes, one of those elusive 5 star reads for me.  A must read for this summer.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Gah, I completely forgot about this book. I’m not so sure that my body is ready for a new CoHo but that’s not going to stop me from getting it. Thanks for putting this one back on my radar, I’m glad to see that you really enjoyed it.
