Welcome to something new and fun, something I will place under the tag category: Spell The Month in Books!
I found this one on One Book More and it looked so much fun so I had to participate as well! I wanted to do my TBR, physical TBR (library or owned books), see if I could find all the letters. I did! It took some effort and puzzling to find all the books. In the end I have 5 Dutch books and 3 English books. I am delighted that I had two picture books from the library for the Es, because I was this close to just calling November Novmbr. 😛
I am going to show you guys a picture of my stack and after that I will show the book covers + blurb (for the Dutch-Dutch books I translated the blurb for you (which was tons of fun btw), for the English>Dutch translated books (2 of them) I picked the original blurb).
Oh, and the original creator of this tag is Reviews From The Stacks!
And yes, I may do this tag more often, it all depends on my TBR, which is generally pretty tiny, unless I raided the libraries. 😛

Chloe Wang is nervous to introduce her parents to her boyfriend, because the truth is, she hasn’t met him yet either. She hired him from Rent for Your ’Rents, a company specializing in providing fake boyfriends trained to impress even the most traditional Asian parents.
Drew Chan’s passion is art, but after his parents cut him off for dropping out of college to pursue his dreams, he became a Rent for Your ’Rents operative to keep a roof over his head. Luckily, learning protocols like “Type C parents prefer quiet, kind, zero-PDA gestures” comes naturally to him.
When Chloe rents Drew, the mission is simple: convince her parents fake Drew is worthy of their approval so they’ll stop pressuring her to accept a proposal from Hongbo, the wealthiest (and douchiest) young bachelor in their tight-knit Asian-American community.
But when Chloe starts to fall for the real Drew, who, unlike his fake persona, is definitely not ’rent-worthy, her carefully curated life begins to unravel. Can she figure out what she wants before she loses everything?
