A super cute, super sweet homage to rom-com movies and the people who love them.
You can always tell when a story feels so personal to the person who created it and The Lesbiana's Guide to Catholic School is one of the best examples I have ever seen of this. I laughed, I cried, I cheered and I closed the final page with the biggest smile on my face.
I really, really liked this! The twist at the end literally made me gasp, which has not happened in a while but is always the best feeling ever!

I love this book so so much! It is sweet, funny, steamy and everything I never knew I needed in a heist novel. So excited for the next book!
Casey McQuiston's novel is a fun, sugary-filled treat full of charmingly relatable characters and extra sweet feels. It immediately transported me into August's world and made me wish I could travel to New York City and look for my own group of people immediately.
A delightful romp around London in the 1960s that focuses on a young Cruella and showcases her descent into the villain she's known as today.
This book is seriously messed up in the best way possible. A modern retelling of the infamous Dorian Grey, this story was creepy, suspenseful and unputdownable, and came with a sweet romance as an added bonus. Highly recommend!
Lost in the Never Woods is so much more than just a Peter Pan retelling. It is an emotionally beautiful and devastating exploration of grief, survivor's guilt and the power of light and children's wonder. Any book that can make you smile, sob and ultimately inspire you is one worth reading!
I have never read a book quite like this, mystery or otherwise, and it was the story I never knew was missing in my life. Finlay Donovan is someone who tries her best, but just can't seem to get ahead before life kicks her down again and seeing her rise to the occasion over and over throughout the book and become the badass woman she is was amazing!
This book was so interesting! I was particularly impressed with the way Tori Telfer was able to balance telling each story in a way that was engaging and entertaining while always managing to connect it to the idea of how female criminals fit into a society that emphasizes male crime, and how these women were able to utilize that to their benefit and other people's harm.
A completely unique and enthralling tale of horror and mystery! Getting to know all the characters and their unique dynamic in the family just added to the creepiness and the urge to read on and figure out just what exactly is going on. I can't wait to see wha the author comes up with next!
Gabrielle Korn is my new favorite writer! The way she tells her story so open and honestly and is able to connect it to the social media-driven society today without ever coming across as condescending or above it all is truly amazing and refreshing. I think nowadays everyone is so obsessed with appearing like they have it all, that reading about someone who is successful but open about their struggles is honestly inspiring for anyone out there. Definitely a new favorite!
Enemies to lovers is a tale as old as time, but one that manages to feel amazing and grin-inducing every single time. Seeing Dom and Shay come together and grow closer throughout the novel literally had me squealing in excitement.

Another phenomenal addition to the Rick Riordan presents family, I absolutely could not put this down until it was finished. I especially loved the fact that Sik was not a fighter and was able to navigate the trials set up for him by relying on his friends and the skills he did have. An exciting read for sure!
A super adorable debut romance that deals head on with mental health issues in a way that feels realistic and inspiring.

Wes and Bethany's book has been a highly anticipated one ever since being introduced to the set up of their love/hate relationship in the last book, and boy was the anticipation worth it. Seeing how they changed themselves and each other for the better and worked to become the best versions of themselves is a great reminder of what healthy, trust-filled relationships should feel like.
