For You & No One Else by Roni Loren was one of my most anticipated reads for 2022 because I absolutely loved and devoured the first two books in the Say Everything series as I got them and I loved what we got to see of Eliza through those stories.
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.
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.
Is there a trope that Teagan Hunter can’t write? Because I haven’t found it yet. This might be a new trope for Teagan, but she slayed it and I am still all in my feels. Whenever I pick up a book by Teagan, I end up awake at 2am processing my thoughts about the book because that’s when I usually finish reading it. Her books are best enjoyed in one sitting, no lie. And she knocks it out of the park with One-Timer and the wonderful relationship between Hollis and Lowell.
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.
My god, this book. *chef’s kiss* Catherine Cowles has kicked off her new series with such an emotional, heartbreaking and intense story that I’m not sure I have all the words to express how much I love it. Low on the romance and high on the suspense, Tattered Stars was so beautiful.
I’m not the biggest fan of Romeo & Juliet when it comes to Shakespeare’s works, but this modern retelling was so wonderful that you forget entirely about the classic that it takes some inspiration from.
Skye Kilaen has a way of telling stories that I absolutely love. While the romance in this is minimal, it is the first of a series that will continue the story of the two main characters. Even without the romance being front and center, I was hooked onto this story!
I have a very complicated relationship with this book. I really enjoyed it, but I also didn’t. It’s a weird place to be, so keeping that in mind, I’ll make this a short review.
When Melanie Harlow announced that she was going back to Cloverleigh Farms and bringing the kids of the original gang to life, I squealed so loud. I have loved the Sawyer family so much that I was sad when the books ended. Sure, we got the awesome Bellamy Creek group too, but the Cloverleigh gang was who introduced me to Melanie and I wanted more. And now we have it!
