I never fell in love with the heroine, but I liked the hero a lot. It‘s the first in a trilogy and I hope my library obtains the other two 🤞🏽

My 2nd book by this author. I enjoyed it more than The Flatshare, but I‘m wondering if I‘m missing something with this author of if I haven‘t been in the right mood for her 🤔

This was a long one. It had a saga-like feel, and it took a minute to get absorbed into the story, but I ultimately liked it. A fun visit back to the 90s. Could have done with an epilogue, but that‘s what I almost always say.

SamAnne I absolutely loved this one. 2w

Meh. Sir Candle Man has a large following in the candle community and his IG stories can be fun, but this book was not my favorite. I found the section on decorating with candles to be a little strange.

I stumbled upon this book when searching for an Earl Grey scented candle. Someone recommended Laurel Mercantile‘s Tudor candle. Haven‘t bought the candle yet, but did manage to watch one episode of their show. The book leaned more Christian than I anticipated. They seem like a very sweet couple.

Another one I had to listen to twice because I had difficulty keeping track of who was who the first time around. Jonah/Jude/Jules. Tough in an audiobook.
I did like the story though. I love reading about friends and family banding together in difficult situations; love details and the nitty gritty about people‘s daily lives; love inside jokes 💖

So many characters that it took me half the book to even care about them. Had to go back and listen again so that I could enjoy the story the 2nd time when I already knew the characters and had the lay of the land.

Some interesting trivia. I get why they can‘t include bits of the songs in the audiobook. Good news is that someone already put together a Spotify playlist 🙌🏽

Thoughtful approach to parenting, focused on connection (rather than trying to control behavior) in order to raise secure and self-possessed people.

Didn‘t love it but liked it A LOT.
It‘s gentle; no real dramatic highs and lows, but that was a good thing. The couple is in their late 30s and are mature and for the most part, well adjusted. I liked both of them 😊

This was fine. I didn‘t fall in love with either of the main characters; nothing wrong with them, but they didn‘t feel special. The character I liked the most was the hero‘s ex-wife; she was minor but great.

Another pair of boys to love 💕 This prequel is just as good as the first book, and it was fun to catch glimpses of the boys in the original book several years before their story happens.

I rarely bail on a book but I‘m quitting this one at 56% on this one. Narrator‘s voice is wrong for the heroine, the sister character is cartoon-awful, and I‘m just bored. Such a bummer because I‘d been looking forward to this one for a while 👎🏽

It‘s good. Not just romance but also friendship and family and grief.
I still think that the couple‘s initial break up is dumb, but then I haven‘t been in their situation.

PG-13 slow burn romance. Been a while since I‘ve read something with characters that I like, and I almost teared up at one point. I thought it was pretty good. However, a point off for no epilogue.

My favorite of the series. Even though I found a lot of it incredibly stupid (falling for multiple boys, out of character major decision made by the king, and more), I was totally sucked in by the series at this point and loved the ending.
