Hello and welcome to Bathtub Book Club, Isolation Edition! If you’re reading this in 2020, you’re likely spending a lot of time at home or dreading leaving your home. Since pretty much all new news right now is a certain level of exhausting, we decided to stick with the familiar and re-read a book that we’ve both read before.
I broke down and got a promotional Kindle Unlimited membership, just to try it out. The cool thing about it is that I can read a whole series on Kindle Unlimited without paying for it (with the exception of my monthly membership fee, of course), which means I have been reading a lot more romance series than I used to do. The first romance series I stumbled upon on Kindle Unlimited was The Somerton Scandals series by Ava Devlin.
Little Weirds opens up with Slate sharing one of her fantasy dimensions, where people interpret her as a french woman, but actually as a french croissant, intended to be consumed, to satisfy people’s appetites.
Those of you who have read my reviews in the past know that I get most of my reading material from emails.

I came across this Cinderella retelling as an ad on BookBub, one of the lists I get emailed to me periodically. I clicked on it because I wanted a closer look at the cover art. I bought it because of the description. I read the whole series, because I had to find out what happens next. To explain The Memory Thief, I have to set the stage a bit...
Wolf in White Van follows Sean, who creates mail-in roleplaying games and makes a living off of subscription fees.
If you know me - or if you’ve read any of my reviews in the past - you read the content notes for this post and thought, “Bethany read this? That doesn’t sound like her style…” You would be correct. The blurb for this book did NOT prepare me for the amount of trauma the characters experience, which is a large part of why I have chosen to review it.
Nervous Conditions follows Tambu, a young girl who grew up on an impoverished homestead in Zimbabwe in the 1960s.
After the last book that I read - a contemporary military romantic suspense - I wanted a change of pace. I still wanted to read a romance novel; my boyfriend and I have an anniversary approaching and romance is in the air. So, I chose a period romance set in England and the Scottish Highlands.
