Last month I introduced The Hoemance Book Club here on my blog and this month we’re reading The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang (there’s still time to join us if you’re interested!). I’m personally really loving discussing the book on the Discord with everyone in the club and I can’t wait to discuss it with everyone in our live show at the beginning of next month! So, here are out book club picks for OCTOBER, NOVEMBER & DECEMBER of this year! I’ll also be posting our book club picks for the start of 2022 later this year so look out for that post!

Foster Marlett was always there…until he wasn’t.

After disappearing for four years without so much as a goodbye, he’s back, and something has definitely changed about him other than his marital status.

Long gone is the boy who left on a whim.

He’s taller.
And have his arms always been that big?

When he starts sending looks my way I know I should ignore, I can’t help but wonder if there’s something between us that wasn’t there before.

But that can’t be possible.

He’s always just been my brother’s best friend.

I can’t fall for him…can I?

This month we have two book club picks in case anyone doesn’t like sci-fi/fantasy elements in their romance!


Book Cover

Seventeen-year-old Julie has her future all planned outβ€”move out of her small town with her boyfriend Sam, attend college in the city, spend a summer in Japan. But then Sam dies. And everything changes.

Heartbroken, Julie skips his funeral, throws out his things, and tries everything to forget him and the tragic way he died. But a message Sam left behind in her yearbook forces back memories. Desperate to hear his voice one more time, Julie calls Sam’s cellphone just to listen to his voicemail.

And Sam picks up the phone.

In a miraculous turn of events, Julie’s been given a second chance at goodbye. The connection is temporary. But hearing Sam’s voice makes her fall for him all over again, and with each call it becomes harder to let him go. However, keeping her otherworldly calls with Sam a secret isn’t easy, especially when Julie witnesses the suffering Sam’s family is going through. Unable to stand by the sidelines and watch their shared loved ones in pain, Julie is torn between spilling the truth about her calls with Sam and risking their connection and losing him forever.


Book Cover

In an office romance, there’s a fine line between sexy and awkward… and that line is where Asako — a woman who sweats copiously — met Koutarou — a perfume developer who can’t get enough of Asako’s, er, scent. Don’t miss a romcom manga like no other!

Yae’s living her dream, working at the toiletry maker Lilia Drop. Little do her coworkers know, the reason she loves the company so much is that she’s ashamed of her body odor, and their soap is the only thing that does the trick. So when the company’s lead product developer, a perfuming genius, approaches her in the lobby and wonders what “that smell” is, she’s terrified… but could it be… that he likes it? And, even more surprising to Yae… does she like him?

The hilarious ups and downs of an office romance at a personal care products company are the subject of this sexy, strange romp. Sweat and Soap combines the odd-couple chemistry of Wotakoi, the “too real!” workplace comedy of Aggretsuko, and a heavy dollop of office steaminess!


For December we’ve picked a backlist Christmas romance by Christina Lauren!
Book Cover

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…but not for Maelyn Jones. She’s living with her parents, hates her going-nowhere job, and has just made a romantic error of epic proportions.

But perhaps worst of all, this is the last Christmas Mae will be at her favorite place in the worldβ€”the snowy Utah cabin where she and her family have spent every holiday since she was born, along with two other beloved families. Mentally melting down as she drives away from the cabin for the final time, Mae throws out what she thinks is a simple plea to the universe: Please. Show me what will make me happy.

The next thing she knows, tires screech and metal collides, everything goes black. But when Mae gasps awake…she’s on an airplane bound for Utah, where she begins the same holiday all over again. With one hilarious disaster after another sending her back to the plane, Mae must figure out how to break free of the strange time loopβ€”and finally get her true love under the mistletoe.
