#Book Review #ARC – The Sweet Shop of Second Chances; H. Lynn

What a great read! First thing first, the story arc is super. Great idea, great execution, the ups and downs are well-timed, and the MC is so relatable. You end up caring about Holly within the first chapter, about her struggles and the way she responds to them. Is she a bit naive sometimes? Of course *cough cough*. Is she able to overcome her fears and go through an excellent character growth? Yes. Color me satisfied.

#Book Tour #Book Review – The Grooms Wore White; C. Lindhurst

Let me start by stating that I love the idea behind this book. It’s cute, it’s funny, and it’s well-thought-out: Lindhurst grabs some tropes and builds a story around them, using them as a starting point rather than relying on them. The latter is the easy way out, but also the mark of a lazy author; the former is trickier, but also a chance to showcase an author’s writing skills. Well done!

#Book Review #ARC #Mini Review – Here We Are… On Route 66; J. Hinckley

Travel books are comfort books. They’re there to take you on a journey–always appreciated–and show you new places. Or, old places you can’t get enough of. Here We Are… on Route 66 belongs to the latter category. I think I read a decent chunk of Route 66-related books, and I’m still coming back for more: there are so many attractions, so many cool places, and signs.

#Book Review – Resistance #2 – Equality; E. McGinness

The second installment in the Resistance series, Equality brings back our favorite French couple, Sabine and Hérisson. Still double POV, and once again both characters have powerful voices. This time I prefer Hérisson’s arc because his character growth is even more pronounced than it was in Liberty. Sabine, though! Sabine reads as the core of the story, and I love her ability to face every issue with bravery. Her spirit is the real backbone of this book.
