Perhaps it is just the monotony of staying indoors under lockdown in this pandemic, but lately I have been reading more and more contemporary romance novels. And All I’ve Wanted, All I’ve Needed by A. E. Valdez is one of those sweeping romances that’s been on my TBR list.

Following the story of Harlow Shaw who believes in things that are meant to be and happily ever afters (ahem…sounds a lot like me if I am being honest), All I’ve Wanted, All I’ve Needed by A. E. Valdez is a beautiful story about new beginnings, and discovering what you really want out of life and going for it unapologetically.

As a South Asian Muslim woman myself, I was beyond excited to get my hands on Hana Khan Carries On by Uzma Jalaluddin, a delightful love story featuring a bold, brilliant and ambitious young Muslim protagonist, two competing rival halal restaurants, and a diverse cast of colored characters.

Blog Tour: Battle Of The Bullies By Fenix Blue [Excerpt + Giveaway]

A story about three sisters in high school who are trying to survive bullying and overcoming their personal trauma? It’s not easy to explore such sensitive and important issues, but Fenix Blue does it masterfully in her novel Battle Of The Bullies.

Blog Tour: The Monster Keeps Me Safe By Kitty Thomas [$200 Grand Giveaway]

I am a HUGE fan of Kitty Thomas. I fell in love with her books ever since I picked up Comfort Food, which is honestly one of the most phenomenal books I have read on sexual slavery and Stockholm Syndrome. Normally, I stray far away from dark erotica or non-consensual romance, because I think it takes a lot of skill to handle such subjects without being insensitive to victims of abuse.

Blog Tour: The Monster Keeps Me Safe By Kitty Thomas [$200 Grand Giveaway]

But, you see, this is where Kitty Thomas shines. Most of her books are dark and gritty and quite disturbing, and although they all belong in the romance genre, she never actually romanticizes the abuse because she never excuses the actions of the abusers in her stories.

And that’s why I cannot wait to get my hands on The Monster Keeps Me Safe. It was previously published under the name Tabula Rasa, but the content remains the same; only the cover art and title has been changed. Thank you Xpresso Book Tours for having me as a tour host for this book.
