Good second installment in the series. The cliffhanger ending assures my continued interest in the lives of Sunshine and Levi and the rest of the characters in Del Sol!
3.5⭐️ Fun love story, cute and easy to read!
Really good romance. If you‘re looking for spice, this isn‘t it, but it‘s a really good story of two flawed characters navigating life alone and eventually together. The audiobook is really enjoyable!🎧
“What is a game?” Marx said. “It‘s tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow. It‘s the possibility of infinite rebirth, infinite redemption. The idea that if you keep playing, you could win. No loss is permanent, because nothing is permanent, ever.”
Enjoyable second in the series. I like that these sisters are not damsels in distress waiting to be rescued. The books are cute and fun. The audiobook narrators are very good (although the American accents sound like it‘s what someone who‘s never actually heard an American speak thinks it would sound like🤷🏽♀️😂)
Best description I can give this audiobook is: meh. The story is ok, happy, if somewhat unconventional (in that the couple doesn‘t ride happily off together,but are both seemingly happy or finding their happy apart) ending. The narrator is alright, but some of the accent work is questionable/grating.
I don‘t even know where to start with this one. I literally couldn‘t stop listening. I kept asking myself “how is this somebody‘s real life?” Tara Westover is a testament to the notion that it‘s never too late to become what you‘re meant to be and to overcoming a very unconventional/dangerous/crazy upbringing. This book will stay with me for a long time, I think.
“To the extent I‘d ever dreamed of my own wedding— which was approximately never — it had always been a courthouse affair for health insurance purposes where we told no one and continued to live in separate houses.”
Love this quote and thoroughly enjoyed this book!
This cast of characters and the story of their epic adventure (at times misadventure) is just good reading/listening. The narrators were excellent and I really enjoyed the storytelling. I felt like I was “traveling 300 questions an hour” with Billy, Duchess, Emmitt, Wooly, and Sally and I enjoyed every minute of it.
“It‘s a leap of faith to love people and let yourself be loved. It‘s closing your eyes, stepping off a ledge into nothing, and trusting that you‘ll fly rather than fall.”
Loved this book - an adorable, cozy love story full of found family, cute kids, magical happenings, and happy endings.
CHEMISTRY IS CHANGE… Whenever you start doubting yourself, … whenever you feel afraid, just remember. Courage is the root of change—and change is what we‘re chemically designed to do so when you wake up tomorrow, make this pledge. No more holding yourself back. No mor subscribing to others‘ opinions of what you can and cannot achieve. And no lore allowing anyone to pigeonhole you into useless categories of sex, race, economic status, and religion
And, in the end, do you ever truly know for sure if you‘re lovable?
What a question.
You don‘t. You can‘t. Of course not.
Life never hands out the answers like that.
But maybe that‘s not even the right question.
Maybe love isn‘t a judgment you render—but a chance you take. Maybe it‘s something you choose to do—over and over.
Doy yourself. And everyone else.
⭐️ This seems to be quite a polarizing book, and I‘m firmly in the “no thank you” camp. I did not enjoy the story at all. It was just weird and not in a very fun or interesting way. Also, the audiobook is grating especially when the narrator voices the toddler daughter - there‘s only so much “mommy, mommy, mommy” I can hear before wanting to scream (maybe that was a little bit the point 🤷🏽♀️). Anyway, this one was a solid NO for me.
This book is way outside my preferred genres, but I enjoyed listening to it. The narrator was excellent and the story is very interesting. 🎧
Emily Henry writes men clearly created by a woman. Charlie Lastra is the latest, and he has to be fictional, because I am convinced no one like this actually exists in reality. If I‘m wrong, I need an introduction immediately. Anyway add to my list of favorite reads.
To say that I loved this book would be an understatement! The slow burn romance of Diana and Jeremy was EVERYTHING! The sapphic love between Helen and Sutton was unexpected and refreshing. The banter practically leaps off the page. I enjoyed reading this immensely!
When other girls dreamed about the prince, I was definitely fantasizing about that library!
“She‘d gone to the library with her parents, once a week, every week, when she was a little girl. It had felt like a magic place to her, full of books just waiting to be read—on shelves, in stacks, in every corner. She‘d fantasized about having a place like that in her own imaginary future home, with shelves and shelves of books, wherever you looked.”
“how nice it was to be sleeping with a guy who didn‘t seem to want or need all the other bullshit men always wanted from her—parties, meeting their friends, all the big showy stuff she always dreaded. All she and Theo did was eat takeout on his couch, watch TV, and have great sex. It was heaven.
