    The Heart Principle

    To be honest, I had doubts going into this one because The Kiss Quotient was just okay for me.... after reading a few reviews from people saying that they didn't care for TKQ but that they really liked this one, I said okay, let's go.

    The Christmas Wish

    I was led to believe that this was a holiday romcom, but this marketing is a bit misleading. It has romance, yes, and it had a lot of humorous lines and situations, but the focus of the story wasn’t romance so much as it was about family dynamics and understanding that people aren’t always as together as they seem.

    Love on the Brain

    The first thing I have to say about this book that isn't really about this book at all is that I have had that Rhianna song stuck in my head since reading the title of this one. Weeks, friends. Weeks. It's a good song, but I'm ready for something else LOL.

    Book Lovers

    The first thing that struck me immediately is the writing itself. It was quick, clever and downright hilarious. The back and forth banter often reminded me of Gilmore Girls, and the small town that the book takes place in had a total Stars Hollow vibe to it, even down to the town hall meeting that Nora attended for pure entertainment purposes just like Lorelei. I was hooked!
