This was such an interesting book and I commend Gillian Libby on a fun debut. It’s got a combination of a lot of things I love about a romance and while I honestly thought this would be a women’s fiction sort of story, it had some steamy bits that really took me in the opposite direction. It’s got great friendships, a charming hero, a beautiful beach location and loads of surfing.
Beauty in the Details takes place in Nantucket, a part of the world I’ve only ever seen in pictures and I’ve always been fascinated by. So to spend time there through this book was a treat.
This book was such a treat. Not only did I not read the blurb to remind myself of what the book was about before I started, but I also decided not to read any reviews either. And I’m so glad. Because I enjoyed this book so much more than I thought I would and having read some of the reviews now, I’m glad I didn’t let those change my thoughts about the book.
I am absolutely blown away by the brilliant writing of Lindsey Jesionowski in her stunning debut. The words have a lyrical feel to them and the story itself is so enticing and interesting that once you start, it’ll be hard to put it down. And there’s a part of me that can’t quite believe that this is Lindsey’s debut, because this book is fantastic.
What an incredible debut by Hannah Smith! Hazy Love is the story of 27 year old Hazel Jones going through the motions following a break-up with her cheating ex, lots of drinking to numb herself and the constant struggle of being unable to do the one thing she wants.
I absolutely devoured Kate McWilliams’ debut as soon as it landed on my Kindle and I loved the suspense element that I didn’t see coming! This small town, second chance romance is a great debut and an easy and captivating read.
There was so much about this book that I wanted to love, but it didn’t hit all the right notes for me. Even though it took me a while to figure out where the book was based, I liked that we stepped out of the traditional small American town location to focus on a city like Brighton (if I’m not wrong) in England.
Easy and light, Influenced Love is a fun read. There are some hilarious moments and some moments where you might feel secondhand embarrassment, but all good books have those pieces.
Look at this cover! It’s so beautiful and it really nicely depicts the story of Vassa and Lazarus, but what the cover also doesn’t show is just how deep this story runs! It Started with a List is a fantastic debut and one that’s got me excited for what Tinia Montford has coming next!
Kaye Rockwell’s debut shook me to my core in all the right ways. Glad You Exist is a young adult contemporary romance and while it tackles all of the teenage woes of being in love with your best friend, dealing with friendships and straddling the line of being a good daughter and a good friend; this book also tackles some really heavy topics.
