MY REVIEW

CW: Blood; murder; gun violence; Alzheimer’s/dementia

The Perfect Crimes of Marian Hayes was a delightful surprise of a book. I went into this book with no exceptions, but I came out completely enamored. Something about the romance between Rob and Marian touched a special part of my soul, and this book was so sweet, loving and tender that I feel like I have a dopey smile on my face every time I think about it.

MY REVIEW

CW: Homophobia; outing; depression; grief

I feel like this will be a very unpopular opinion, so stick with me, but I did not like Red, White and Royal Blue. I’m very late to the game with reading this, but this is a super hyped book, and I tend to push off reading those as me and hyped books don’t tend to mix well. And that was certainly the case with this book. From the romance to the characters to the plot, this book was just not good. And I’ll be honest – the hype had me expecting more.

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW

CW: Homophobia; racism

I went into this book with zero knowledge of the plot as silly old me didn’t read the synopsis. Color me surprised that there was time travel in this book! Once the suspension of disbelief kicked in, I liked this book despite some of its flaws.
