MY REVIEW

In Which Margo Halifax Earns Her Shocking Reputation was such a cute and spicy little novella that managed to cram a great romance in a short amount of pages! I’m not usually a big reader of novellas, but I saw everyone raving about this on Instagram, so I had to pick it up!

MY REVIEW

CW: Misgendering; enbyphobia; divorce; strained parental relationships

I had seen a handful of folks gushing over Love & Other Disasters on IG back when it was published, and fate would have my audiobook come in on the first day of Pride month! This delightful cooking show romance was a beautiful story of queer love.

MY REVIEW

CW: Grief; anxiety; pregnancy; home invasion

It pains me so much that I didn’t like this book. I was greatly looking forward to it as I adored Kylie Scott’s Stage Dive series and was excited for her to write another musician hero. However, this book fell flat. This book was a bit of a nebulous meh.

MY REVIEW

After not liking It Happened One Summer, I went into this book with slightly lower expectations. And I’ve got to be honest – my feelings on this are a bit mixed. I liked the beginning and the build-up in Fox and Hannah’s relationship (something sorely lacking in Piper and Brendan’s relationship), but the final act of this novel is where the story lost me and made me a bit iffy on my overall feelings on it.

MY REVIEW

CW: Childhood cancer; death of sibling from cancer

I’m not a big fan of holiday-themed romances, but I am a big fan of Lauren Layne and An Ex for Christmas is such a cute, quick holiday read. An Ex for Christmas feels like a Hallmark movie in book form with a hint of a rom-com like What’s Your Number mixed in. You go in knowing exactly how it will end, but it’s fun to see how Layne will get our two lead characters together.
