Review: You Deserve Each Other

Good morning!! I hope you’re all staying safe and healthy!
Today I’m bringing you a review of one of my favourite reads of 2020, You Deserve Each Other. This was a very fun rom-com based around a fiancés-to-enemies-to-lovers romance; sounds a little strange, but it couldn’t have possibly been any more fun!
I hope you enjoy!! ❤


You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle
Genre: Adult – Contemporary, Romance, Humour
Pages: 368
Publication Date: April 2020
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Read September 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
When your nemesis also happens to be your fiancé, happily ever after becomes a lot more complicated in this wickedly funny, lovers-to-enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy debut.
Naomi Westfield has the perfect fiancé: Nicholas Rose holds doors open for her, remembers her restaurant orders, and comes from the kind of upstanding society family any bride would love to be a part of. They never fight. They’re preparing for their lavish wedding that’s three months away. And she is miserably and utterly sick of him.
Naomi wants out, but there’s a catch: whoever ends the engagement will have to foot the nonrefundable wedding bill. When Naomi discovers that Nicholas, too, has been feigning contentment, the two of them go head-to-head in a battle of pranks, sabotage, and all-out emotional warfare.
But with the countdown looming to the wedding that may or may not come to pass, Naomi finds her resolve slipping. Because now that they have nothing to lose, they’re finally being themselves–and having fun with the last person they expect: each other.

Review: Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating

Good morning!! I hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend and staying safe and healthy. ❤
Today I’m sharing my review of an adult contemporary romance that is pure fluff and fun, Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating. I picked this book up on a whim earlier this week and I read it in two days. I’m so excited to read more Christina Lauren books in the future!!
I hope you enjoy!


Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren
Genre: Adult – Contemporary, Romance, Humour
Pages: 309
Publication Date: September 2018
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Read December 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun.
Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.
Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them…right?

Review: Dreamland

Good morning and happy Saturday! Long time, no see, but I couldn’t be happier to be back. 🙂
Today I’m here with  a review of Dreamland by Sarah Dessen. This was the second time that I read this book (the first being about five and half years ago which is so insane to think about because it feels like just yesterday) and it was interesting how my perspective of certain elements of the story have shifted with time. 
Hope you enjoy!!


Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
Genre: Young Adult – Contemporary, Romance
Pages: 250
Publication Date: May 2004
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Read April 2015 & December 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
Wake up, Caitlin.
Ever since she started going out with Rogerson Biscoe, Caitlin seems to have fallen into a semiconscious dreamland where nothing is quite real. Rogerson is different from anyone Caitlin has ever known. He’s magnetic. He’s compelling. He’s dangerous. Being with him makes Caitlin forget about everything else–her missing sister, her withdrawn mother, her lackluster life. But what happens when being with Rogerson becomes a larger problem than being without him?

Review: Daisy Jones & The Six

Happy Friday, my lovely readers! 
Well, I finally did it. I hopped on the Daisy Jones bandwagon and I have no regrets. This story was amazing, unique, and entirely unforgettable.
I hope you enjoy!!


Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Genre: Adult – Historical Fiction, Music
Pages: 355
Publication Date: March 2019
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Read June 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six: The band’s album Aurora came to define the rock ‘n’ roll era of the late seventies, and an entire generation of girls wanted to grow up to be Daisy. But no one knows the reason behind the group’s split on the night of their final concert at Chicago Stadium on July 12, 1979 . . . until now.
Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock ‘n’ roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.
Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.
Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.
The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.

And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime. Now, after years of homeschooling, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at a public high school. But she never imagined she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.
It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet soon it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory must make a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants and the truths that need to be heard.

Review: Bad Girls with Perfect Faces

Happy Wednesday! I hope you’ve all been having an awesome week so far. 
Today I’ve got a review for a wild ride of a book, Bad Girls with Perfect Faces. This was the first book I read for The Reading Rush. I didn’t actually make a TBR for the readathon because I’m a mood reader and no matter how hard I try, I just never stick to them. This book fulfilled the prompt of a title with five or more words. Hope you enjoy!! 😀

Genre: 
Young Adult – Contemporary, Mystery, Thriller
Pages: 320
Publication Date: October 2017
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Read July 2019

When I looked up, his smile was wide and real. “Ready?” he said.
I faked a smile back. I had gotten so good at faking things.
I thought: You brought this on yourself, Sasha. You will have to pretend forever now.
He squeezed my hand again. He couldn’t begin to imagine what this actually was. He had no idea what I’d done. What any of us had.

When Sasha’s best friend Xavier gets back together with his cheating ex, Ivy, Sasha knows she needs to protect him. So she poses as a guy online to lure Ivy away.
But Sasha’s plan goes sickeningly wrong. And she soon learns to be careful of who you pretend to be because you might be surprised by who you become…

Series: Splintered #1
Pages: 371
Publication Date: January 2013
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Read April 2015 & January 2019 (re-read)

Goodreads Synopsis:
Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.
When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.
