Poppy & Alex haven‘t spoken to each other in 2 yrs. They were best friends who enjoyed traveling together every summer, but 1 summer changed everything. Poppy‘s plans a trip for Alex‘s brother‘s wedding. What will happen between them by the end?

The hype for this book was definitely guaranteed. I liked the gradual built up chemistry between the 2. The plot & the descriptions were top notch, but rest of the writing could‘ve been a little better.

This STEMinist novella is about Mara being forced to live in the house as grumpy giant Liam through an inheritance. At first, they loathe each other, but through their forced proximity, that starts to change during their year together.

This one is my favorite of the trilogy. I loved the couple; they were hilarious & adorable together. The separate time frames were a fantastic build up to the end.

This STEMinist novella is about how Hannah‘s sent to the Arctic for NASA research, where she runs into Ian. She hasn‘t seen him since their hookup after their interview years ago. He‘s also tried to veto her expedition. Why?

I liked the main characters in this one better than the other one. I didn‘t really like the time frames in this 1 as much as the other 1. I also liked how the other characters from the other novellas reunited at the end.

This STEMinist novella‘s about Sadie stuck in an elevator w/ Erik. About a month ago, they spent one day & one night together. He supposedly betrayed her, so she ghosted him. How will they move on from their past together?

The characters were cute & funny, but they got kind of annoying b/c of their non-communication. I liked the separate time frames. I‘m so glad they didn‘t say “I love you” at the end; I would‘ve been even more annoyed.

Ava‘s brother‘s best friend, Alex, is assigned to look after her. Ava tries to get emotion out of Alex‘s icy demeanor, & she succeeds. They learn of each other‘s demons, will they get past them together?

This was kind of worth the hype. I liked the characters & their chemistry: cute, spicy, & funny. I enjoyed the plot, but the writing could‘ve been a little better. I will let you how the 2nd one goes.

Phoebe moves back into her childhood home to renovate it after her father dies. She loves true crime culture, which is why she suspects her neighbor to be a serial killer. When he‘s quite the opposite, she grows feelings for him. Will she be able to have a relationship w/ him?

This one was slow through most of it, but it had good writing & plot. Phoebe & Sam as characters were very funny & charming; not really any character arcs for them.

Hannah‘s back in Westport to shoot a movie. She stays with her “platonic,” but extremely hot friend Fox. They try to make her boss, who she has a crush on, jealous, but they both start to grow feelings for each other instead.

I still like the first one better, but this one is still good. I liked Hannah and Fox as characters together and their arcs. My favorite part was the epilogue; it was much needed.

Olive and her attractive enemy, Ethan, go on her twin sister‘s honeymoon b/c the sister and the groom get sick. During the trip, they get rather close and realize their feelings for each other. Can they put the past behind them though?

I didn‘t really get the hype for this book. I liked the diversity in the characters, but not the characters themselves, especially Ethan. It had a happy ending, and I liked it, but not really how it got there.

Bee‘s selected to lead a NASA project along with her nemesis, Levi. While they‘re working together, she realizes that maybe he‘s not her nemesis, and starts to have feelings for him. How will that affect the project?

I really enjoyed this one. Levi‘s character as the love interest was perfect. Him and his chemistry with Bee was just beautifully written. The plot wasn‘t like any other I‘ve read. I just wish there was more diversity in race.

Naomi & Nicholas are supposed to be getting married soon, & they don‘t love each other anymore. But neither of them want to pay for the cost of the wedding. So, they prank each other into giving in. Neither one of them expected to fall in love again.

This one was cute & funny at times, but also boring. I enjoyed the character arcs for both the main characters. There was just little to no spice. Enjoyed it, but wouldn‘t read it again.

Vivienne put a curse on her ex-boyfriend and he returns to town to recharge the magical lay lines. Because of her curse, everything goes haywire in town. That means they have to work together and ignore their chemistry. Can they do both?

This book was cute and had good humor. I didn‘t really like Vivienne as a character b/c she wasn‘t so smart; it got annoying. She didn‘t really get a character arc. However, I did like her with Rhys.

This one was an okay read. I liked the characters, but I didn‘t like the plot b/c the characters fall in love in 3 days. I feel there should‘ve been more time, but I know there‘s only so much time w/ car troubles.

This one was so cute. I wish I read it as a physical or e-reader. For some reason, I didn‘t like it as an audiobook. I liked both the characters‘ arcs and the plot. The writing was okay, could‘ve been better.

A Shatter Me novella from Warners POV after Juliet has escaped sector 45 compound. Warner is devastated about Juliet escaping because he loves her.

This novella was an enjoying read. It progressed Warner‘s character compared to the first one. It also nicely transitioned into the second book, which I liked. It was a bit slow at first, but then picked up half way through.

This ACOTAR novella bridges the events between the 3rd and 4th book. The gang is still recovering from the war, but also trying to prepare for Winter Solstice.

I didn‘t really see a point to this novella. There are a couple things that are mentioned in the 4th book, but that‘s it. It doesn‘t really advance many of the characters or their relationships, which made it kind of boring.

I didn‘t like this as the last novel. It got a little confusing and weird at some points with Juliet. However, I did like that it had a happy ending for my favorite characters.

This 1 was also a great read. I enjoyed getting to know more about the secondary characters. I also liked how some other characters came into the war against Hybern. I definitely liked the ending, despite the sad parts that came with it.

I was intrigued by the plot of this book, but I was disappointed by the writing & the main character. It was unnecessarily long; mainly due to the back & forth between Remy and her neighbor. There was a happy ending, but I didn‘t like how it got there.

Like in Pretty Woman, Lottie goes out looking for a husband in Beverly Hills after she gets fired. She runs into Huxley, who‘s looking for a fake pregnant fiancée. The more time they spend together, the more the feelings (and desires) begin to turn real.

I didn‘t really enjoy this one. I didn‘t like most of the characters. The main character annoyed me because she was too indecisive. I already knew who did it from the beginning. Also, the reveal felt forced rather than natural.

This is a prequel to The Hunger Games narrated by Coriolanus Snow. Coriolanus is a new mentor for District 12 female in the 10th annual hunger games. While he helps her in prepping for the games, they grow feelings for each other. What could go wrong?

This one was okay. It was interesting to know more about Snow, but it was slow and boring up until the end. If I hadn‘t listened to it as an audiobook, I would‘ve bailed.

Juliet and Adam have escaped Sector 45. However, Juliet still tries to figure out why Warner and Adam are both immune to her deadly touch. That causes her to become closer to Warner … in more ways than one.

I loved this one! So much better than the first one. The writing is just as great, or even better. We get to know Warner more. More romance. More action scenes. And the segue into the next book is just spectacular.
