This book was so sweet and had many laugh out loud moments. Somehow it still managed to have some incredibly hot scenes. I highly recommend it!

My last read of 2022 and quite a bit short of my 30 book goal. I was doing well but work turned into utter chaos. 14/30 while keeping in mind I took care of myself the best I could isn‘t too bad. Happy new year everyone!

I loved this book! Kate and Anthony‘s chemistry was electric and somehow more intense than Daphne and Simon‘s, which is hard to imagine. Unlike the first, I read this before I will start season 2 of the show. I‘m excited to see how the show tells the story but I can‘t imagine that it will live up to the love I have for this book.

2. Christina Lauren! I absolutely adore everything I‘ve read thus far from this writing duo!!

Let me start this by saying I watched the show and I still couldn‘t put this book down. If you‘ve seen the show, you know what to expect, but if not, think Darcy and Elizabeth with a twist. Both Daphne and Simon will do things that will upset you, make you laugh and melt your heart. At the end of it all, you can‘t help but want to know more about their life together and cheer them on. I‘m so glad this one had the 2nd epilogue!

This book is a beautifully written story about love and loss. The heart wrenching story of the Titanic has always fascinated me but this book added a new depth to what I knew about it. Fiction or not, I can‘t help but feel that I have a deeper understanding of what happened and how it affected so many. If you‘re interested in the history of the Titanic, then this is a must read!

Totally not Litsy related, but today is Mia‘s gotcha day! A year ago today I brought the sweetest furbaby home from a rescue. She was surrendered by her previous owner‘s family after her owner passed away. I was looking for an orange cat but something kept bringing me back to this sweet baby‘s picture. I contacted the rescue and scheduled the soonest appointment I could get to meet her, immediately fell in love and told her she was coming home ❤️

Last year I rekindled my passion for reading around May and set a goal of finishing 12 books. I realize that‘s nothing, especially for my fellow Littens, but I had gone from reading a book or two a year to really dedicating time for myself to read. I ended up reading 25 books in 2021 but stopped reading around mid-October. This year I set my goal at 30 books and am hopeful I‘ll exceed that. I‘m excited to set more time aside soon ❤️📚

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks That‘s awesome!! 👏🏻📚❤️ 13mo

SRWCF @Ahw06 sing it, sister! When I was a teenager, I dove head first into all the classics and devoured them with gusto! Since then, over the years, my reading has been pretty hit and miss. I guess I just adult too much and don't take a lot of time for self-care (i.e. reading). I'm starting off this year with some short, easy books to get me back into the reading habit. 📚 🥰👊 13mo

This book was good and I understand why it ended the way it did, but it felt so incomplete to me. I would have preferred a more concrete decision from the heroine but it was more true to life with the ending.

Unpopular opinion: the best part of this book was the cat.

I heard wonderful things about this book but it just didn‘t do it for me. It seemed to drag on forever. I know the dialect was to engross the reader in the location and era but it made it much more difficult to follow. There were good parts to the book but the overall story fell flat.

SamAnne I‘m in the same boat. I loved the descriptions on the marsh, etc but found aspects of the story too unbelievable. It was a so so for me. 1y

I really enjoyed this book! I had no clue it was a follow up to Big Summer until I was about 25% of the way in and saw a character‘s name in it. It‘s not a sequel in the sense of having the same characters and continuing their story line, but more of a different branch of the timeline with new characters. I can‘t wait for the 3rd one to come out - The Last Summer.

This book was an excellent continuation of the first. I love a perfect romantic ending but there was something with how this one ended that just made me love it more. It left the story open enough for the possibility of a 3rd book, while also concluding the storylines with enough room for curiosity about what will happen later. I adore this series!

Anxiety, depression and suicide are at the forefront of this book, but it is so beautifully written. While most books with these themes so prevalent can be quite triggering, this book wasn‘t (at least for me). A story that is not just about hope but about appreciating all the little things that are so easy to overlook. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is in a rut and is unable to see the beauty in their life.

This book was a combo of two of my favorites, romance and thriller / mystery. I loved the transition in the book from one genre to the next and how it covered the more difficult parts of loving yourself and realizing how good you really do have it. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good romance but also wants to be caught up in the suspense of a thriller / mystery.

This book really needs a trigger warning. There are so many serious subjects in it and very few of the high ratings actually disclose this. Reading a summary of the book, I really didn‘t think I was going to be getting into a book about child abuse, mental illness, domestic violence, etc.

This book was ok but it is not the book for me.

katy4peas Bummer. That‘s not what the summary says at all. 😕 1y
Ahw06 @katy4peas yea I really thought I was just reading another enjoyable, lighthearted book. I debated not even finishing it, but I never do that. It‘s not a bad book but be prepared for a lot of really tough subjects to pop up as you‘re reading. 1y
katy4peas Hmm. Thanks for the warning. I‘m up for ditching. I‘ve decided there are too many books I want to read, so if I don‘t like it I move on. That seems to be my motto for the year. 🤷‍♀️ 1y

Some books should have trigger warnings, regardless of where you are borrowing / purchasing them from. This is that book. I‘m 21% of the way through and I can‘t decide whether or not I should just bail on this one. I haven‘t bailed on a book yet but this is disturbing. There have already been implications of severe mental illness, child abuse, domestic violence and emotional / psychological abuse.
