Book Lovers

My third book by Emily Henry in 3 years and this is by far my favorite one! Remember Sandra Bullocks character in The Proposal? Yea that’s Nora. Uber successful and cutthroat literary agent. Her favorite things include her beloved Peloton and getting the best deals for her clients. Known as The Shark, Libby hasn’t taken…

The Summer Place

I’m so conflicted on this review. On one hand I think it would be great for zoning out while sitting on the beach. On the other hand I didn’t find it super engaging . When Ruby gets engaged, three generations of family secrets are forced to come to the surface. All of the secrets are…

One Italian Summer

I read Rebecca Serle’s The Dinner List a few years ago when it was a Book of the Month pick and I loved it. Then In Five Years came out and once again, Serle was able to toy with my emotions once again. At this point she’s an auto-buy author for me and if you…

Olympus, Texas

This is the epitome of a family drama, and really the entire plot revolved around the internal drama that is the Briscoe family. This story is 100% about the character’s emotional baggage and coming to terms with who they are as people. While it promises to hold quite a bit of mythology references, unless you…

Plain Bad Heroines

I was on a bit of a roller coaster with this book and after finishing this book my feelings for it are conflicted. On one hand I really enjoyed the creepy boarding school vibe, the trippy ‘magic’, and the originality of the story. On the other hand there were some parts of the story that…

The Keeper of Night

I’m a huge fan of YA fantasy, but I think I’ve decided I’m not a huge fan of fantasy duologies. I have started to notice, at least in the duologies I have read recently, is a big issue with pacing. Most fantasy stories need time to develop and establish world-building. I find that the first…
