November 9 – Colleen Hoover

November 9 – Colleen Hoover

I had such high hopes for November 9. I had never read a Colleen Hoover and heard so much praise and love that I had to read one. And hooboy was the praise worth it, until almost the end of the book. Then I was just annoyed and frustrated. Fallon […]

Shopaholic to the Rescue – Sophie Kinsella

Oh Becky, how I missed you. Sophie Kinsella is one of my auto-buy authors and I was sad as I did not love her YA debut Finding Audrey. So, I was thrilled that her return to the Shopaholic world was great. Shopaholic to the Rescue picked right up where the previous […]

Furiously Happy – Jenny Lawson

Furiously Happy – Jenny Lawson

I kept seeing Furiously Happy all over the place but never thought to add it to my TBR. I passed on it when it came up on Netgalley as it just didn’t seem like my kind of read. Then I saw Grace’s review and knew I had to read it. It […]

Carry On – Rainbow Rowell

Carry On – Rainbow Rowell

I have been enamored with Rainbow Rowell since I first read Eleanor & Park in 2013. I have read her previous four books but her two YA’s have been my favorites. Oh Fangirl, how I loved thee…So when I heard Rowell was writing a book based off of the fanfic in Fangirl, I think […]
