A Sweet Tale of Music and Romance: More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn Review

How do you deal with the grief of fictional character death? If you’re me, I would say, read something cute and fluffy. I was really devastated by the death of one of my favorite characters in the book I read before this. I wanted something that would make me forget and squeal in happiness. More Than Maybe seemed cute enough so I moved it to the top of my reading list.

When I read the first chapter in this book, I knew that I would like it. Mutual pining and assuming feelings are unrequited? It’s one of the tropes I live for.

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.

Warm and Fluffy Read: Eyes on Me by Rachel Harris Review

This is the kind of book that leaves you feeling giddy and warm at the end. The kind that makes you sigh with contentment, wishing to find a love like it.

Before reading this, I reread one of my favorite books by the same author, The Fine Art of Pretending, so I couldn’t help comparing the two. I guess every Rachel Harris book I read will always have high expectations to live up to. But although The Fine Art of Pretending remains my favorite, this one was great too.

Just as Good as I Remembered: The Fine Art of Pretending Review

Before I start this review, let me just say that I have “book amnesia”. I can barely remember books I read years ago even when I absolutely loved it. Honestly, what leaves a lasting impression on me is not the plot but the way a book made me feel.

The Fine Art of Pretending was one of the books that had the honor to be included in my favorites (stand-alone) shelf but I couldn’t even remember any of it. All I know is that it was sweet and fluffy and I absolutely loved it. So despite reading it five years ago, it still felt like the first time.

Perfect Except for the Ending: The Sun is Also a Star Review

This is the kind of book that would’ve been perfect except for one thing: I did not root for them to be together. Yes, they had chemistry but since it all happened in one day, I still feel that everything was a bit rushed.

Yes, I get that this was all supposed to happen in one day but I’m not really a big fan of instalove. I also had a little problem with the ending. Everything was perfect and I was about to give this five stars since it kind of negated the instalove part. Until the epilogue happened.

Funny, Frustrating, and Sweet: Meet Me At Midnight Review

This is one of those books that make you want to scream and shout “FINALLY!” after everything goes well in the end. The kind that puts you through sweet and anxious moments in equal measure. You know that there’s inevitable doom but you don’t mind because it is fun and sweet so you just enjoy the moment while it lasts.

To be honest, I really wasn’t into this at first. I tried picking this up last January but left it for another book. Eventually, I picked this up again because I HAD to read it. So if you decide to read this, I beg that you hold on because things will definitely get more interesting.

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: This Song Will Save Your Life

I am pretty sure anyone who reads the synopsis for this book will not expect what’s actually inside. Sometimes, books cannot be summed up in a few words. You have to read every page and see the whole picture to know how special it is. This is one of those books.

This Song Will Save Your Life definitely started strong. Elise’s voice was very engaging and I flew through the pages easily. It was funny without trying, sometimes even in serious moments. But what I was not prepared for was the weight it carried right from the beginning. I went into this expecting a light, contemporary read but what I got was something else. Something far more important.

Review: The Burning Shadow (Origin #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

This was so much more than I anticipated. The second book in a series is usually a letdown but I am really glad this was not. After reading too many Jennifer Armentrout books, I can definitely say that we fit. I want swoon as much as I want action and she never lets me down in both aspects.

What did I like about this book? Well, first things first: Luc. Seriously. He is such a complex but irresistible character. I remember being initially pissed at him in The Darkest Star but I understood him after reading the Lux series. So reading The Burning Shadow made me see him a different light. If it was possible to fall in love with him more, it’s exactly what I did. Seriously, who can resist him? Not me (and not Evie), that’s for sure.
