Built to Last by Erin Hahn ๐ŸŒŸ Arc Review ๐ŸŒŸ

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!

I love friends to lovers, a one bed only trope and throw in a reality TV home remodeling show??? YES!!!

This was a hit for me. Shelby and Cam started something at age 17 when their tv/sitcom coming of age show went off the air 10 years ago and now, they are working together again!

This has a great build up to steamy romance and a lot of sweet nothings that left me sighing. What I especially loved was the attention to details about them as a couple but first and foremost as individuals.

Cam really had to make peace with his family, especially his father. He was also struggling with the idea of setting down roots somewhere more permanently than he has been. Shelby has spent the last 5 years sober and focusing on herself. My personal favorite thing about this book is that Shelby is a skilled woodworker and works with her dad on renovations.

If your a fan of romcoms then I definitely recommend this!

Three Kisses, One Midnight by Roshani Chokshi, Evelyn Skye and Sandhya Menon ๐ŸŒŸARC Review ๐ŸŒŸ

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!

Such romance! I adored this! 3 short stories about Onny, Ash and True finding love on the 400th anniversary of their towns founding. The sky itself holds 2 lovers on this night, the Lady and Gentleman of Moon Ridge. But, the Lady’s star is missing from the sky and it’s possible on this magical night that she is at Onny’s parent’s gala with the rest of the town making sure love finds it’s way to these three friends.

This was great. I loved that it was 3 different stories, one about each friend. This let me get to know them really well and feel a connection to this tale. I am a sucker for romance and this book is perfection!

๐ŸŒŸ Arc Review ๐ŸŒŸ This May End Badly by Samantha Markum!

Thank you Netgalley and Wednesday Books for this incredible arc!

I love the fake dating romance trope and this book instantly became another new favorite for me this year. Doe and Wells make for a delicious and delightful team in this story and I loved every second of it!

The fast-paced, humorous and endearing world and relationship with these characters made me never want this book to end. Although the story is light-hearted and fun, there were some serious topics covered which made this tale more authentic.

I recommend getting your hands on this one! Definitely do not miss out on this witty romantic read. I cannot recommend this more!

Out April 12th!

๐ŸŒŸ My Current Reads Update and THOUGHTS ๐ŸŒŸ

Is published Reylo fanfic Real????

YES IT IS!!!

And, it is wondrous!!!

Seriously if you love Reylo fanfic or just Reylo or just Adam Freaking Driver … Just do me a favor and read this and tell me what you think!!!

So, I talked to a few people who did not enjoy the slow burn, did not think it was smutty enough and also, did not love the ongoing miscommunication and misunderstanding.

However, it’s Reylo so I thought it fit and yes, it is GLORIOUS!!! Lol ๐Ÿคฃ

Empire of the Vampire!

This book is outstanding. A great piece of work. I have read the first 400 pages as a sampler Arc but I’m rereading super slow and just taking it all in. I’ll probably be slowly getting through this for another month.

Zodiac Academy: The Awakening

So excited to read this! Just got into the first few chapters yesterday and it’s caught my interest. Looking forward to reading more today!

Steelstriker

I love Marie Lu with all my heart and I do not understand how these beautiful books and amazing story are not more popular! This is the sequel to Skyhunter and it’s great. Basically war and monster like creatures and steel wings … it’s cool.

So basically that’s it! If you have read any of these please message me with spoiler free thoughts!!!

Have a great day! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

I am absolutely thrilled to be only one week away from Christmas! I can’t wait to hand out presents, overdose on sugar while watching Elf and of course spend time with family!

I am currently reading a few things that are not exactly Christmas related but I am certainly enjoying:

A snowy thriller!

I am loving this cryptic suspense and mystery in Rock Paper Scissors by Alice Feeney! I have fallen in love with the thriller genre this year and there is no turning back now! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Lexi Ryan is amazing!! I bow down to her as I read this story full of manipulations and lies… not to mention two absolutely gorgeous Faerie Prince’s!!! And, there is going to be a sequel??? I am so not ready for whatever cliffhanger I’m heading towards!!

Stop! Just stop and write on your calendar for 2022… January 4th is the release date for this very unique and indescribable really, thriller following Molly the Maid during a murder investigation at her high end hotel of employment. I hope to finish this soon to tell you more bc it is incredible!

This is everything I’m reading right now! I am wishing all of you the very best and would love to hear your thoughts on any of these books! Please feel free to message me anytime! Cheers!

The Love Curse of Melody Mcintyre by Robin Talley, A Quick Review

As soon as I began reading The Love Curse of Melody Mcintyre I immediately felt a connection to the main character, Mel. 
When her role as a stage manager (SM) for her high school’s plays and musicals is endangered by a bad break up with her girlfriend, the crew decides that Mel should stay single and not fall in love as a way to beat the curse that seems to make everything go wrong.
Mel agrees, however,  she has a change of heart when she meets the local high school celebrity who is able to take part in the upcoming musical Les Mis.
This book had everything I wanted for a lighthearted romance.  It was sweet and cute and romantic. Not to mention that there were some parts that had me laughing out loud.  The author did an amazing job making these characters relatable and loveable.  I also kind of wish I had been in drama club too because it sounds like so much fun!

Divergent by Veronica Roth, A Short Review

This was such a great reread almost 8 years after the first time I read it. I had no idea I would still love this book so much! What I loved most of all was the sweet romance between Tris and Four. I do not know if it affected me as much the first time I read this but this time I felt like a lovey ball of goo just adoring every moment they had together. Honestly, I am not sure if I have really matured much over the years! I highly recommend this to first time readers and rereaders alike. So much fun, definitely fierce and just the right amount of romance.

Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!!

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, A Review

An amazing end to an amazing story. Katniss never really was in control of the rebellion situation or her own life like she believed she was before The Hunger Games. Everything she loved could always be simply taken away from her. Everything she knew and trusted could be changed. It is not till the end of this book, when she loses almost everything she loves, that she truly gains control.

Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!!

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir, A Review

This book has so much strength to it, and the fact that I was able to get a signed copy has made me literally feel stronger for reasons I cannot totally explain. The main characters are both very loveable, charismatic and only serve to enhance each other’s stories. Laia has everything taken from her and has no idea how to fight back for it, how to have the courage of a lion and show no fear. Elias is fighting in a different way, he is literally a fighter, a mask, and also trying to find his escape to a freedom that doesn’t involve hurting anyone. I highly recommend this first book in the series and thanks for reading my review and happy reading!!
