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 Bookish Life of Nina Hill

There are certain books you read that leave you with a feeling of contentment. This is one of those.

When I read the excerpt, I expected it to be a typical romantic comedy — a light enough read to keep me entertained. What I was not prepared for was how much depth I found in it.

This book is not just about a girl who loves books and being alone. This book is about comfort in solitude, the gift of family, and how sometimes, the best company comes in the most unexpected people.

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: The Kiss Quotient (The Kiss Quotient #1)

“How did one not obsess over something wonderful? How did one like something a reasonable amount?”

This quote pretty much sums up how I feel about Helen Hoang’s writing. When I read The Bride Test, I found it hard to finish any book I started. I just wasn’t in the mood. I wanted to read others like it. So I read The Kiss Quotient and again, I was sucked into it.

Review: The Bride Test (The Kiss Quotient #2)

This is my first Helen Hoang book so I had no expectations. I heard about The Kiss Quotient — it was big on the book blogging community — but I haven’t had time to read it yet. But when I got an ARC for the second book, I couldn’t miss the opportunity.

Right from the beginning, I was hooked. It even made me stay up late until 4 AM even though I had work in the morning. It was that good.

Blitz and Giveaway: Cutie Pies and Deadly Lies

“My name is Lottie Lemon and I see dead people. Okay, so I rarely see dead people, mostly I see creatures of the dearly departed variety, aka dead pets. And for some reason those sweet, fluffy albeit paranormal cuties always seem to act as a not-so-great harbinger of deadly things to come for their previous owner. So when I saw that sweet orange tabby twirling around my landlord’s ankles, I figured Merilee was in for trouble. Personally, I was hoping for a skinned knee—what I got was a top spot in an open homicide investigation. Throw in a hot judge and an ornery detective that oozes testosterone and that pretty much sums up my life right about now. Have I mentioned how cute that detective is?”

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.
