The Friend Zone, Superfan, The Unhoneymooners & More! | Recently in Romance

Hi guys! Sorry for my long hiatus, blogging always goes out the window for me when my kid isn’t sleeping well! I’ve read some AMAZING romances in the meantime, though, so I hope you’ll check out some of these fan favourites, especially if you’re looking for a beach read! Review: The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez Loved this unique story of self-discovery, love at all costs, and friendship. The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez surprised me in the best way possible. Going into the book, I was initially super annoyed by heroine Kristin Peterson’s brashness and her prejudices against anything […]

A Must Read! Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston | 5-Star Review

A Must Read! Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston | 5-Star Review

Review: Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston Red, White & Royal Blue is the year’s best romance, an intoxicating and beautifully written tale about love between the First Son and the Prince of Wales, finding and accepting your sexuality, and the politics of doing the right thing. It’s an absolute triumph of writing, angst, shippy-ness, and inspiration. Alex Claremont-Diaz is the son of US President Ellen Claremont, a biracial, wise-ass of a guy who has grand political ambitions of his own and the smarts and leadership to make it happen. He’s just finishing university at Georgetown as his […]

From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon | 4-Star Review

Review: From twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon From Twinkle, with Love stars Twinkle Mehra, an Indian-American girl who’s dreamed of being a filmmaker for her whole life. At the beginning of the book, she’s done a few YouTube videos, but nothing big. That all changes when Sahil Roy – the nerdy brother of her crush, Neil – suggests that she create a movie for the upcoming Midsummer Night festival at school. He’ll produce, she’ll direct. It’s perfect – Twinkle will get to put herself out there (yikes) and she’ll also get to get closer to Neil – and to […]

Your Next Rom-Com Reads: Man Hands and Man Card by Sarina Bowen & Tanya Eby

Friends, as many of you know, I am Sarina Bowen-obsessed. So when I heard she and Tanya Eby were writing two rom-coms called Man Hands and Man Card, I leapt at the chance to review them. Sarina is a great at partnering with other authors to write the best new adult romance out there (see: the Him series; Temporary, etc, etc). Her romances are packed with loveable, relatable characters, found families and friendships, and swoony moments. Please note: These are R-rated, and you may snort laugh while reading these. I sure did. And they got me out of my first month […]
