Landline by Rainbow Rowell
First I loved Eleanor & Park. And then I loved Attachments. And now I love Landline. I think it’s safe to say that I’m a fan of Rainbow Rowell. Big fan. Landline is funny, charming, sad, magical, mystical, hopeful, tense, and a little time-bendy. It’s about relationships—between husband and wife, mothers and daughters, best friends, boy and girl, girl…
Friction by Sandra Brown
I initially picked this up thinking I’d slip it in under No.22 on my challenge, but since it’s probably the least explicit Sandra Brown book I’ve read (there are only like, three steamy scenes in 416 pages), I’m going to hold off until I find a book worthy of the Erotica genre. In other news, Friction is the perfect book for soaking in…
The Love that Split the World by Emily Henry
I bought this book solely for the cover and I’m glad I did—Emily Henry really is a gifted writer. An imaginative time-bending teen romance, The Love the Split the World is jam packed with quick wit and sarcasm—which, of course, I love—and it kept me captivated enough to keep reading in the park well into twilight, until my straining…
Soulless by Gail Carriger
Though I did find a few plot points a bit tiresome (we get it, Alexia, your father is Italian, your nose is Roman, your best friends are a flamboyant vampire and a woman with horrendous taste, and your Victorian era suitor is a smoking hot Scottish werewolf Alpha who is the picture of a perfect gentleman…
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
I feel very strongly about the subject matter of this book. I support death with dignity, and I believe it’s an important issue that should be discussed and considered on a personal and individual level. This novel may have started a conversation for a lot of people, and I think Moyes does a fantastic job portraying a…
The Tiny Wife by Andrew Kaufman
I’m 100% convinced that everything Andrew Kaufman writes is pure gold. Absolutely genius. I don’t know how he’s able to say so much about love in such a short book, but he is incredibly successful in doing so. No. 14 on my challenge. Thank goodness—it would have been terrible for Nancy if she’d had to…
The Longest Ride
Typical Nicholas Sparks: Old couple, young couple, romance, fight, romance. But I will say this: Scott Eastwood is too sexy. He should have to pay Attractive Taxes.
Sam Rockwell and Keira Knightley, eh? Who knew? ps. this movie is adorable.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
I’ve always fancied men in kilts and Scottish brogues. Throw in time travel, historical fiction, romance, sadism, humour, fear, and a healthy dollop of erotica and what’s not to worship? (Obviously, I’ll be binge watching the series.) No. 4 on my challenge. Thanks for my signed copy, Mom!
Two Night Stand
A typical rom com: hot people in a ridiculous situation. So obviously I loved it.
