Title: Weather Girl

Author: Rachel Lynn Solomon

Genre: Adult Romance Comedy

Availability: January 11, 2022

With an expected release date on January 11th of 2022, Rachel Lynn Solomon brings a TV meteorologist and a sports reporter scheme to reunite their divorced bosses with unforecasted results in this charming romantic comedy that is set to become the next best-selling novel.

Ari Abrams has always been fascinated by the weather, and she loves almost everything about her job as a TV meteorologist. Her boss, legendary Seattle weather woman Torrance Hale, is too distracted by her tempestuous relationship with her ex-husband, the station’s news director, to give Ari the mentorship she wants. Ari, who runs on sunshine and optimism, is at her wits’ end. The only person who seems to understand how she feels is sweet but reserved sports reporter Russell Barringer. 

They will have to work closely and get to know each other, especially parts of Ar that she keeps hidden from everyone if they want to succeed. Will he be able to embrace her dark clouds as well as her clear skies?

Rachel states that her novel “it’s an adult romantic comedy that I’ve pitched as Set it Up (or The Parent Trap) at a TV station with more spice”. With that description, who wouldn’t want to read it!


Title: 30 Things I Love About Myself

Author: Radhika Sanghani

Genre: Romance

This book is a mixture of self-discovery, comedy, and romance, all tied together by the outrageously funny novelist Radhika Sanghani. When a British Indian woman's life hits rock bottom, she decides to change her stars by falling in love with herself.

Nina didn't plan to spend her thirtieth birthday in jail, yet here she is in her pajamas, locked in a holding cell. There's no Wi-Fi, no wine, no carbs, and no one to celebrate with. Unfortunately, it gives Nina plenty of time to reflect on how screwed up her life is. She's just broken up with her fiancé and now has to move back into her childhood home to live with her depressed older brother and their uptight, traditional Indian mother. Her career as a freelance journalist isn't going in the direction she wants, and all her friends are too busy being successful to hang out with her. 

Just as Nina falls into despair, a book lands in her cell: How to Fix Your Shitty Life by Loving Yourself. It must be destiny. With literally nothing left to lose, Nina makes a life-changing decision to embark on a self-love journey. By her next birthday, she's going to find thirty things she loves about herself.

This piece, expected to be published on January 4th of 2022, deserved the complete synopsis to give you a full idea of what it will be about. It is not a simple and light-reading book but a self-discovery journey that happens out of nowhere, some might say out of necessity, that will leave more than one thinking about their lives.


Title: Operation Sisterhood

Author: Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich

Genre: Middle School

Synopsis: "Bo and her mom always had their own rhythm. But ever since they moved to Harlem, Bo’s world has fallen out of sync. She and Mum are now living with Mum’s boyfriend Bill, his daughter Sunday, the twins, Lili and Lee, the twins’ parents…along with a dog, two cats, a bearded dragon, a turtle, and chickens. All in one brownstone! With so many people squished together, Bo isn’t so sure there is room for her." 

What can I say, I needed to display the synopsis because of how much adventure will be happening throughout this book. The cover drew me in but the plot made me want to devour this book immediately. I think that this book fits for an NY escape and wanting to relive your children with The Baby Sitters club.

She’s heading to NYU in the fall with a scarlet U (for “undeclared”) written across her chest. Her parents always remind her that Black kids don’t have the luxury of figuring it out as they go—they have to be 110 percent prepared. But it’s a lot of pressure to be her ancestors’ wildest dreams when Lenore’s not even sure what her dreams are yet.

When her family embarks on a post-graduation Mediterranean cruise, her friend Tessa is sure Lenore’s in for a whirlwind romance. But Lenore knows that doesn’t happen to girls like her.
