The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez

The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez was a cute and humorous read. While the ending was very predictable, as are most rom-com novels, it was still a feel-good book that provided a smile during these current trying times. One trouble-making dog brings together two perfect strangers in this USA Today bestselling romantic comedy full of “fierce humor and fiercer heart.” (Casey McQuiston, NYT bestselling author of Red, White & Royal Blue) Two years after losing her fiancé, Sloan Monroe still can’t seem to get her life back on track. But one trouble-making pup with a “take me home” look in his eyes is about to change … Continue reading The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez

Symptoms of a Heartbreak by Sona Charaipotra

Symptoms of a Heartbreak by Sona Charaipotra is the first book that I received through Book of the Month’s YA Program. I have very mixed feelings regarding this book honestly but the part that I adore with BOTM, is that it encourages me to read books that I normally would not look at. Which is definitely the case with Symptoms of a Heartbreak. I loved the idea of a 16 year old “girl genius” doctor. However, I didn’t like the way that she was portrayed. I felt that if she is supposed to be a “genius” and a board-certified doctor, … Continue reading Symptoms of a Heartbreak by Sona Charaipotra

The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen

Is it possible for Sarah Dessen to write anything that isn’t gold? The answer is no….no it is not! Read at your own risk for spoilers. Emma Saylor is a delight to read about. The immediate love that she has for a family long forgotten {not her fault} is wonderful to see. She immediately accepts them and wants to learn as much about her history as possible. Even with the photographic evidence that she sees, she wants to learn more. And that’s also due to the photographs. She’s found a family that has missed her, and by doing that, she … Continue reading The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen

Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta

I hate writing negative reviews, I really do. This was an….interesting…..book. Watch out for spoilers. I honestly struggled through this book. While I enjoy the story of King Arthur, I did not enjoy this adaptation. I think it was so far from the original that it was hard for me to accept. I also wasn’t expecting it to be as dystopian of a book as it was. There were definitely parts that captivated my attention and caused me to not want to put the book down. However, they were few and far between. I found myself checking my phone every … Continue reading Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta

Desperate Forest by Cece Louise

Please note, I received a free copy of this e-book in exchange for an honest review. Please note that there are spoilers ahead in this review. When I first started the book, honestly I wasn’t super thrilled. A king was murdered, the uncle wants to now kill the princess in order to have control over the kingdom, and the Princess has run away. Okay, decently common theme throughout young adult fantasy books. I’m very glad that I kept reading though. Roselynn was a fantastic protagonist. She is a great combination of innocence and determination and loyalty to save her people … Continue reading Desperate Forest by Cece Louise

Mom’s Perfect Boyfriend by Crystal Hemmingway

Please note, I did receive a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. And there are spoilers ahead! Okay….now to the review. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I’ve definitely read books in Instant message/chat format before… TTYL by Lauren Myracle for example. So when I started this book and it was in text message format, I wasn’t really phased. However, I love that Hemmingway also add it in excerpts from journal entries as well as regular letters also. It was a great way to provide background information around the story without breaking the format of the way it was … Continue reading Mom’s Perfect Boyfriend by Crystal Hemmingway

Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life by Gary John Bishop

I remember downloading this book awhile ago onto my Audible account and then promptly forgetting about it. I love audiobooks, but it’s not always easy for me to get into them. I tend to want the narrator to read quicker than they are. And then I get discouraged by how much time is still left for the book. Scrolling through my Audible account, I actually clicked on a different book by Gary John Bishop. Within the first couple minutes, he mentioned “as I talked about in Unfu*k Yourself” (or something along those lines), I knew I needed to stop and … Continue reading Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life by Gary John Bishop

My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler

I’m definitely hit or miss when it comes to audiobooks. I went into this book having never heard of Chelsea Handler before, I was intrigued by the title of the book. It was hilarious!!! She was blunt, honest, and didn’t hold back. I love that she is not ashamed of her past and embraces it wholeheartedly. I definitely want to learn more about her now. It’s still looked down upon for a woman to enjoy men, whereas it is celebrated for men to enjoy women. The fact that Chelsea shared her experiences, is a breath of fresh air. She has … Continue reading My Horizontal Life by Chelsea Handler
