Flawed but Entertaining: Not the Girl You Marry Review

This is the kind of book that would frustrate you to no end because you get to know both sides of the story. But this is also the kind of book that wouldn’t work better otherwise.

To be honest, Not the Girl You Marry wasn’t even on my radar. I just found out about it when I accidentally requested the 2019 release of Buzz Books Romance on NetGalley. Out of all the excerpts featured, it was the one that really caught my attention. The first chapter got me hooked and made me want more.

More Than a Love Story: What You Wish For by Katherine Center Review

This is a love story and yet, it’s more than just a love story.

Although this is my first Katherine Center book, it’s not the first time I heard about her. I heard a lot of good things about Things You Save in a Fire (which I also plan on reading). So when I got an opportunity to read an ARC of this, I didn’t hesitate to grab it.

Ever read books that make you feel like you’ll really love them even from the start? This is one of those.

Review: Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating

When you’ve had the best, suddenly, everything pales in comparison.

I know I shouldn’t have but I couldn’t stop comparing this to The Unhoneymooners. It was my first Christina Lauren book and I absolutely loved it. It was hilarious and fun in all the right ways. On the other hand, Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating was fun… just not as fun.

I admit that I also didn’t give this the full attention it deserved. This past week, I was so busy that I only read this for at most fifteen minutes during lunch break. But when it did have my full attention, I was gripped.

Enemies to Lovers Excellence: The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren Review

I haven’t laughed this much while reading a book in such a long time. Like literally laughing out loud and not just in my head. The Unhoneymooners was that funny for me.

What I loved most about this book is how the characters were not really mean towards each other. I love good enemies to lovers romance but when one of them is abusive towards the other, that’s where I draw the line. Ethan and Olive hated each other’s guts which resulted in this awesome and witty banter. It’s what made this book so good for me. I loved both of their characters and they were perfect for each other. I got so invested in their relationship that I breathed a huge sigh of relief when everything went well in the end.

Review: The Hating Game

This book is a guilty pleasure. It is the kind of book I would call bad under certain circumstances. Boy hates girl, girl hates boy, but there’s undeniable chemistry and irresistible sexual tension between them. Girl is short and feisty, guy is tall and cold. It has cliche written all over it. Except for one tiny detail: I enjoyed it.

Review: Stronger, Faster, and More Beautiful

What if we could modify our bodies to eradicate all diseases, enhance our intelligence and strength, be able to fly or breathe underwater, and do so much more than what we’re currently capable of? If mankind was given the power to redefine what it means to be human, what would we do?

Sounds amazing, right? But as the author put it, “We will definitely find some way of messing this up in spectacular fashion.” Because that’s what humans are good at — destroying anything.

Review: Remembrance (The Mediator #7)

Meg Cabot has been one of my favorite authors and her Princess Diaries and The Mediator series are one of my favorites. Not to mention her other books that I really liked, which, if I will list them all will take a while.

So naturally, I was also a little nervous and skeptical before reading this. What if it’s not as good as I expected? What if I grew up and the characters I have always loved before weren’t so cool anymore?

I guess I shouldn’t have worried too much. I loved every bit of this book.
