When You Get the Chance, the much-discussed new novel, has millennials feeling… old. The plot is as follows: Millie Price is an emotional young Broadway hopeful whose life is forever changed when she stumbles upon her dad’s old LiveJournal account. Because in that LiveJournal account, she just might be able to discover who her mom is. And once you get over your shock at the fact that LiveJournal users would be able to have adult-aged children, you will fall head over heels in love with this Mamma Mia tale for the digital age. Come for the charismatic heroine and crowd-pleasing premise, and stay for the rivals-to-lovers romance and countless musical theater references.

In Digging Up Love, Alisha is a baker, whipping up magical confections for her family’s restaurant. Quentin is a paleontologist, who finds himself in Alisha’s yard in pursuit of a buried dinosaur bone. They are both in search of something. Alisha, a chance to leave her small town behind, and open a bakery in the big city; and Quentin, the ability to get over the pain of his recent breakup – but instead, they find each other.

Dahlia and London are rivals on a cooking competition show in Love and Other Disasters. London doesn’t have time for Dahlia – they just came out as nonbinary on national TV, and they have enough to worry about without taking Dahlia’s clumsy antics into consideration. And yet, in spite of all this, sparks fly between them, and the question will be whether they can make their relationship work – in face of the show’s season finale.

PREORDER NOW: $ 14.39.

6. Delilah Green Doesn’t Care by Ashley Herring Blake.

 

In Delilah Green Doesn’t Care, Delilah is back where she never expected she would be: home, photographing her estranged stepsister’s wedding. And she definitely did not expect to find feelings for her stepsister’s close friend Claire. At first it looks like Claire doesn’t want anything to do with her – a single mother and business owner, she doesn’t have time for romance – but maybe, before the end of the wedding, all of that will change.

7. Yinka, Where is Your Huzband? By Lizzie Damilola Blackburn.

In Yinka, Where is Your Huzband? Yinka is single, and needs to find a date for her cousin’s wedding. We’ve all been there. But this task is only made harder by the expectations of the people around her – her Nigerian relatives, who are praying for her to find love; her coworkers, who think she’s too old-fashioned; and her friends, who really want her to get over her ex. Can Yinka ignore what everybody else wants, and find the person who’s right for her? This new romance is described a subversion of the genre, and a beautiful narrative about being stuck in the middle between two cultures – we can’t wait to read it!

OUT JANUARY 18: $26.
