The Reading List: A Novel | Sara Nisha Adams
post image
Pickpick

This book was lovely. I'm glad I listened to the audio, even though it made me teary during my drive to work. This was a sweet story about how reading can help you find perspective in your life. It follows the impact of a reading list as it drops into the hands of different people in the community. I liked switching between Mukesh and Aleisha's experience and seeing how they related to book characters. Their friendship was so fun to watch grow.

I finished crocheting this sweater last week, it's the first time I've attempted such a large, wearable project. Normally I stick to small items or blankets. I think it turned out well! Now I've started a new cardigan, which I'm pretty excited about.

The Bachelor's Valet | Arden Powell
post image
Pickpick

This was a silly little novella from KU. Alphonse would be happy to remain a bachelor forever, but his mother threatens to cut him off if he doesn't marry the bride she has picked for him. As he tries to come to terms with the idea of marriage, he starts to suspect that he may have feelings for his trusty valet, Jacobi. This is set in a 1920s AU w light magic. It was super sweet and also made me chuckle. Alphonse is a bit bumbling and aware of it.

I was a bit disappointed reading this graphic novel, I had heard great things about it. I actually bought it as a gift for my sister but wanted to read it before I gave it to her. I'm glad I did because I think it would be triggering for her so I'll be sending her a different book.
I hoped this would focus more on sisterhood & power over men, rather than peer pressure & the corruption of power. Still a decent read, just not what I was looking for.

GondorGirl I'm with you there- I was expecting sisterhood. It was still a good read, but I wish the blurbs had been more clear as to what it was actually about. 2w

This was a great follow-up of the Brown sisters. Hibbert does a wonderful job creating relatable characters & depicting healthy relationships. I especially loved the love interest Zafir who suffers from anxiety & panic attacks because I also struggle with these issues and it was nice to see it handled so well. Dani asks the universe for the perfect f* buddy but is given a fake relationship with Zaf, the romantic
TW: grief, past toxic relationships

I made it halfway through this one before bailing for better things. I didn't love the characters & wasn't interested in the plot. This is the 3rd book in a series so maybe if I had read the first two I would have cared more

The Holiday Swap | Maggie Knox

I loved this twin swapping romance. A bit unbelievable that no one can tell them apart, but all part of the fun. The love interests were swoon-worthy and the women were confident and strong characters. I enjoyed the baking show element and the small hometown setting. This one might become an annual reread...

This Time Next Year | Sophie Cousens
post image
Pickpick

This was different than I expected, in a great way. Minnie has always resented Quinn because he was born one minute before her on New Year's, winning a prize her family needed & stealing her name. Then they meet on their 30th birthday and start spending time together. The chapters flip between the present & previous new year's, showing the two perspectives and the missed opportunities they've experienced. The character growth was really well done.

This was a cute holiday romance. Nick and Noel are best friends but when they stage a kiss to get back at their exes, something sparks between them. I enjoyed the chemistry of the couple and how Nick was so supportive of Noel's trauma as she worked through her grief.

A Marvellous Light | Freya Marske
post image
Pickpick

This book was delightful! Brand new magical systems, curses and treasure hunts, & queer romance at the turn of the century - what more could you want? I fell in love with Robin and Edwin, and can't wait to continue their adventure! Marske did a wonderful job creating a magical world that's so unique and complex yet easy to follow. Her characters are lovable yet frustratingly human. And the historical setting adds just the right amount of whimsy ✨

This is a soft pick for me. I thought the feud between the two characters was a little farfetched and simple communication would have solved a lot of issues. Also Rachel just annoyed me in general. But I liked the representation of chronic illness and discussion of Hanukkah traditions. Some of the secondary characters were funny and likeable.
