Hi everyone and Happy Thursday! I’m sure you all know what that means…
It’s Theme Thursday time!
Yes, that’ll be my intro from now on because I’m lazy. 🤷
So last month I said I didn’t have any themes planned for the upcoming months but I did come with two that would be so cool to do: Office and Witches (because Halloween, I mean, how could I not?)
💟 Bloggers Shoutout 💟
Theme Thursday is a new monthly feature created by Sophie @ Blame Chocolate where bloggers can share recs and newly found books featuring that month’s theme.
- There will be a different theme (genre, trope, etc) every month. Check the calendar here.
- Those participating have to list titles that feature that theme in some way (doesn’t have to be the main theme of the book).
- You can choose one of the four (or five) Thursdays of every month to post.
- You can use the three main categories: Books I’ve Read/I’m Reading, Books I Want to Read, and Other Books That Fit The Theme but this isn’t mandatory.
- Please use this boxed text (or similar) in your post, which doubles as a pingback.
- Additional info is available on the Theme Thursday page.
This month’s theme is: Office!
So any books that take place inside an office space or are about office life or even office romances – really, anything would be fair game. You just had to make sure they involved offices somewhat.
And, guys, I just love these so much! There’s just something about getting access to somebody’s work life, their crushes, their vendettas, their hopes and dreams, that makes it super exciting to read about. Or maybe I’m just nosy? 🤣
🍫 Books I’ve Read/I’m Reading:
I really didn’t like this book. At all. And I know that has nothing to do with it being a genre I rarely reach for because I have read thrillers/mysteries in the past that I did enjoy.
However, Our Kind of Cruelty did involve a few scenes with the main character in his office and with his coworkers so I had to include it here.
On a lighter note, I love The Hating Game so much 3 ❤ ❤
It was the perfect office romance – enemies to lovers, super slowburn, non-asshole alpha love interest, quirky and lovable heroine, witty, sexual-charged banter, I mean, what else could I ask for?
Just please read this book, it’s so CUTE.
Another super cute book!!
So, confession time: I used to be addicted to chick-lit. I know it gets a bad rep, but honestly, they were some of my favourite books ever and I still look back at them with fondness.
The Boy Next Door is one of them.
I know I was much younger then and I might cringe at it now, but who cares. Not only did it include some of the best romance ever, but also some hilarious office moments. Also, did I mention it is completely written in IM/email/text format? (Groundbreaking at the time, guys, I assure you.)
This book is why sequels are sometimes best left unpublished, inside the author’s mind…
Boy Meets Girl is supposed to be a sort of spin-off to The Boy Next Door (same setting, same supporting characters) but it has none of the charm, wit or fun of its predecessor.
Not only is the heroine a dimwitted Barbie with no endearing qualities to speak of (no matter what the author says) but the whole story and romance are so insipid.
🍫 Books I Want to Read:
I’ve heard so much about this author and I thought Neanderthal Seeks Human‘s blurb sounded so adorable! Not to mention the cover… ❤
Again, the cover and blurb had me instantly in love! I just hope Nerd Girl doesn’t disappoint me…
Another adorable book… I don’t know what made me add Sushi for Beginners to my TBR but I’m sure glad I did!
That’s it! Make sure to pingback so I can check out your recs. And if I missed your TT post, feel free to send me an email or comment below with your link and I’ll check it out 🙂
