If you can’t tell by now, rom-coms are my jam. They can be silly, over-the-top, happily ever after overload, sugary sweet, delicious, delectable…oh wait, I think I may be talking about dessert now ha!

Writing duo Christina Lauren’s new one The Honey-Don’t List did not disappoint. True to form, it included witty banter, page-turning character chemistry, and a leading man that you will want to be your book boyfriend. They really do know how to write a male lead.Read More »

<— This is how I feel about this book. I have been holding this review in, waiting for pub day and I am EXPLODING with excitement that its finally out in the world!

5 STAR HERO:
It was the perfect rom-com that snapped me out of my reading rut. I DNF’d the 3 books I picked up before this…my rut was on a serious downward spiral, but I digress. I read it in ONE DAY by alternating between audio and book; both of which I loved.

Need a summer read with a little bit more oomph? I’m talking secrets, some family drama, and learning to find oneself. Then this book is might be your perfect oceanside, poolside, lakeside, heck even cozy couch read. It’s not super dramatic on the oomph front (has just enough): its authentic and had just the right amount of humor.Read More »

My current reading mood = light, feel good, summer vibes. I just want to read books you would enjoy poolside, lakeside, or oceanside even if I am just reading from the couch.

Josh & Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating is my 2nd Christina Lauren book and I’m totally here for it. It was super fun, quirky, and the quick read I needed.

Book Review: Sorry Not Sorry by Sophie Ranald

Did a book’s ending ever make it hard to fairly rate the book? I am not saying that the ending was terrible, its just that…well, I just didn’t like it. Which stinks because up until the 95% mark of this book I thought it was rather fun. I was whipping through the ending because I wanted to finish and then BAM, that “twist.”

It was a fun story; classic chick-lit, light read that is easy to whip through. I liked some characters, I hated some characters (which you were supposed to).  But obviously meh about the ending.

It was okay, it could have been way better. I was disappointed in how flat it fell.

It left me more irritated than love sick. What a bummer.Read More »

I love music just as much as I love books and every Saturday share my Top 5 Saturday Nite Jams in my Instagram stories. This week’s post I thought I would review my latest book club read: Matchmaking for Beginners by Maddie Dawson and dedicate my weekly jam list to the book. After my review you can check out which 5 songs I would pick to describe this book. Enjoy!

This darling of a book was exactly what I needed to round out the majority of heavy reads I completed this month. It was simply delightful: filled with a humor and that butterflies in your stomach feeling. If this book was a living thing I would want to hug it (and if you know me, I hate hugs).Read More »
