The Birthday Book Tag: I’m Turning 20!

Happy Sunday, my lovely readers! I hope you’re all having a beautiful weekend!

This morning I’m here with a super fun Book Tag to celebrate my 20th birthday this week!
Ahh, I still can’t believe that I’m entering my twenties. This is my last weekend as a teenager!
To celebrate, I’m going to do The Birthday Book Tag, which was originally created a few years ago by Antonia @ Always Books.

I hope you enjoy! If your birthday is coming up (or you just want a fun tag), then I encourage you to join in!


Birthday Cake – A book with a plot that seems cliché but you adore it anyway

That’s a fun question! I’m going to choose Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout. The Lux series definitely has a strong cheese factor and some clichés, but it is without a doubt one of my favourite series!

Party Guests — Your most anticipated book release for this year

My most anticipated release for 2021 actually already came out, and that was Twice Shy by Sarah Hogle. After how much I loved her debut novel, I couldn’t have possibly been more excited for Twice Shy. I was lucky enough to read the book a couple of months ago, and while I did enjoy it, the book was not quite everything I dreamed it would be.

This morning I’m here with a review of Sarah Hogle’s second novel, Twice Shy, which was my most anticipated read of 2021! Unfortunately, I did not end up loving the book as much as I had hoped to, but it was cute and fun. 
Happy reading!!

Goodreads Synopsis:
Can you find real love when you’ve always got your head in the clouds?
Maybell Parish has always been a dreamer and a hopeless romantic. But living in her own world has long been preferable to dealing with the disappointments of real life. So when Maybell inherits a charming house in the Smokies from her Great-Aunt Violet, she seizes the opportunity to make a fresh start.
Yet when she arrives, it seems her troubles have only just begun. Not only is the house falling apart around her, but she isn’t the only inheritor: she has to share everything with Wesley Koehler, the groundskeeper who’s as grouchy as he is gorgeous—and it turns out he has very different vision for the property’s future.
Convincing the taciturn Wesley to stop avoiding her and compromise is a task more formidable than the other dying wishes Great-Aunt Violet left behind. But when Maybell uncovers something unexpectedly sweet beneath Wesley’s scowls, and as the two slowly begin to let their guard down, they might learn that sometimes the smallest steps outside one’s comfort zone can lead to the greatest rewards.
