The Slow Burn Office Romance You Need: Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen

The Slow Burn Office Romance You Need: Brooklynaire by Sarina Bowen

I think this is my highest rating ever for a Sarina Bowen novel, and that’s saying something. Sarina writes some of my favorite new adult romances, and every single one of her books is an immediate must-read for me. The reason this one struck me so hard? It’s the slow burn of the century. If you’ve read the rest of the books in Sarina’s Brooklyn Bruisers series, you’ll know that she’s already hinted at the romance between billionaire tech guru Nate Kattenberger, owner of the Brooklyn Bruisers hockey team, and his office manager, the sassy Rebecca Rowley. Those glimpses were […]

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld | Book Review

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld | Book Review

Review: Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld is a witty and enjoyable, if long, retelling of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Clocking in at 512 pages, Sittenfeld takes her time establishing the characters, the city of Cincinnati, and the society in which they live. This is a book for people who like to fall in love with a city and who, like Elizabeth Bennet herself, tend to hold onto first impressions of books and characters. At first glance, Liz Bennet and her family seem like pretty despicable people. They’re old money Cincinnati folk, born with and continuing […]

: The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet by Kate Rorick and Rachel Kiley

The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet is a love letter to fans of the wildly popular webseries, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. There’s no other way to put it. In the Acknowledgments, the authors say that the book would not have existed if people hadn’t voiced their love, affection, and concern for this version of Lydia Bennet. So it seems absolutely right that Lydia should finally get her own story via the voices of those who loved her…because this book, in, itself, is all about Lydia reclaiming her voice. But I’m getting ahead of myself. If you haven’t heard of The Lizzie Bennet […]
