The final book in Evie and Christopher‘s love story. These two have been through so much. They are clearly soulmates and Elisabeth Garner sucks you into the world so thoroughly that you feel like you‘re going through all of it with them. This story is beautiful.

Crows remember human faces. They remember the people who feed them, who are kind to them. And the people who wrong them too. They don‘t forget. They tell each other who to look after and who to watch out for.

I loved this book. The friendship between Tabitha and her girls. The love between her and her grandmother. The fierceness with which she lives her life! Her refusal to give up her plan for life even if it had to change slightly! Loved it! https://heartandsoulbooks.blogspot.com/2022/03/black-girls-must-die-exhausted.ht...

It's been a minute, or possibly ever since I only read one book at a time.This year I'm trying something different and I have been loving being fully immersed only in this world.
Laini Taylor has been drawing me in so completely. Karou is badass, and honestly so is Zuz. I love her characters, I love these books and 2 days after finishing the second I'm already halfway through the third.

Finally catching up on some book reviews...these are completely out of order as I go through the growing pile of finished books on my desk.

I absolutely love @booksbyemgarner writing. She writes life. You connect with her characters and feel like you are one of them. Not a specific character but another one in the room with them. I loved this book, I can't wait to keep reading her series.

The Heart Principle | Helen Hoang

I loved this novel, to me it was more self-love than romcom. While there is a romance aspect to it, there is also family drama. But, the most important part to me is the main character learning to love herself and prioritize herself.

This one officially comes out on August 31st and I highly recommend.

Do you have that one person who recommends a book and you instantly know it‘ll be good? I have 3 such people. One of whom texted me today while I was at the park with my nose buried in another book, telling me I should read this one. Ironically when I checked my library app moments later the audiobook was available, soooo I while I set up some tlc I dived into tara‘s story.

We should all strive to be more unapologetically ourselves. I loved the underlying theme in this book that reminded me constantly to ignore people's underestimation of me, be myself, not apologize and most of all, be happy.

Call me a sucker for books about books but I loved following Emme through her discovery of her hidden gift. Time traveling through books to record important moments of history? Yes freaking please. I have a ton of questions about why haha that are completely irrelevant to the story but that I hope the next two books will answer.

This novel was such a fun quick read. Perfect for a reading slump. I Jenny is going through a crushing break up with her long time boyfriend. Charles is her boss and she hates him. Through a funny turn of events the two end up together and it is beyond adorable and more than a little bit steamy.
