It is the first of February, and that means Valentine’s (or Galentine’s) Day is just around the corner. Immerse yourself in some of BookTok’s spicy reading recommendations to get through the day of love.
Not all books were created with equal spice, but we think these ones do a pretty good job.
A Touch of Darkness
By Scarlett St. Clair
‘”Let me worship you” will have you swooning. Did I mention this one is a Hades and Persephone retelling?
A Court of Silver Flames
Sarah J Maas
If you’re not on the Maas train already, please explain why not.
The Viscount Who Loved Me
Nothing like a little bit of Bridgerton. When you read this one, though, please keep in mind it came out in 2000…
There is something about Greek Gods, because Hades and Persephone may or may not feature in this one too. Oops.
Don’t let the cute cover on this one fool you. There is a 6’5 ice hockey player involved.
The Love Hypothesis
A little bit of science thrown in here to make us feel smart. The author is actually a neuroscience professor who also happens to write a great love story.
