Hey there Everyone.
So I have read a few books this year written by British writers with at least one of the main character being British. Its just something that I have realised that it has been a real fun reading these books. Especially the slang which is incorporated in them and how funny and relatable the characters were. Most of the leading ladies being in their late 20s or early 30s an age I feel would be perfect to fall in love. !
Its just I realised that these British leading ladies have a knack with words , are not very religious or mad about the aristocracy and money , and are doing there best to fulfill their dreams whatever it may be ! They all felt like women I would like to be someday. ( Though some are still in the process of finding themselves which is just as muvh interesting to read). Its just they want to fall in love and have amazing sex but marriage is not the end goal they are looking for. They feel independent crusading through this big bang world.
So there are going to be 5 books which I will be listing. It was a combination of the leading lady’s and the heart flattering Romances which have made me a fan of these books. Hope you get a chance to read them. !
1. THE PIANO MAN PROJECT BY KAT FRENCH .
It’s a love story between a guy who has just lost his eyes and the women who ends up becoming his neighbour. So there is a lot of angst between them. The guy not ready to accept his new reality(he was a celebrity chef) and how the girl next door is always so sunny 🌞! The main girl works in a retirement home and in the book is working to save it from being closed down.! There is a lot of tension between the main characters and I have to say this book will pull the strings of your heart.
2. HERE’S LOOKING AT YOU BY MHAIRI MCFARLANE
So this is one of the most latest books I have read. The main girl is a history professor in the University Of London and has an upcoming show on a 👑Queen in the London Museum. The backstory is that she was bullied and one last act ended up pulling the plug. It’s a love story between her and the guy she liked during her school time who unfortunately bullies her. It is them coming to terms with what happened in the past. The funny part is when they meet in the present when both are 30 something and the main girl dose’nt tell the guy who she really is. It’s a very emotional book which will teach you a lot. Its based loosely on pride and prejudice. You will fall in love with the main characters.
3. BIG SEXY LOVE BY KIRSTY GREENWOOD
Now this book was something different. So the main girl is always prepared and dose’nt like changing her routine. She works in the fish market(😅). Basically her best friend gets cancer and she makes the MC go to New York to give a letter to her big Sexy Love . This book is hilarious from the moment she enters the airport to go to New York. It’s a coming of age novel with a late 20 something MC who ends up finding her dream in the most wonderful city in the world which is New York. And there is a romance involved . With the main guy being a comedy writer in SNL.!
4.ACT LIKE IT BY LUCY PARKER
Now this book had all my favourite tropes. Haters to Lovers and Fake Dating. Both the main leads are theatre actors in London and are presently working in the same play. The guys image is tarnished badly and to resurrect his image the producers decide that the Main Leads should take date . And then you know rest is history. There are just 10 chapters but extremely long , well written and filled with romance 10 chapters. The haters to lovers transition was very smooth .
5. THE PLUS ONE BY SOPHIA MONEY-COUTTS
This is a book for which I am extremely thankful to HQStories for sending it my way. Now this book is absolutely and I mean absolutely Hilarious.It’s a book about 30 year old Polly who works in POSH! Magazine and is not really happy with her job. Its about her navigating her life with her friends , her love life & her amzing mom in London. And it’s a book which involves a lot of wine and raunchy sex scenes 😉.I really fell in love with Polly and how along with being a love story it was a also a coming of age novel. How she wanted to fall in love but wasn’t desperate . And the parallelism done with Sense and Sensibility was something different . Basically due to an assignment she is supposed to interview an aristocrat who though proves himself to be different than what the papers convey him to be you will always have a nagging feeling. This book is really insightful when it comes to Aristocracy and how those people are blinded by money and no active job to do except Partying 😅😉😶. *SPOILER ALERT* It has a very unexpected ending (Though it was something I felt). Its the first book where I believe I could whole heartedly appreciate the best friend trope. And how our best friends can end up being the people with whom we fall in Love.
Thank You so much for reading this blog post of mine. If you have ever felt the same or if any of these books has meant a lot to you feel free to COMMENT !
