PS I Love You by Cecelia Ahern

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book. I saw the movie years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. But it was only recently that I realised that it was a book first. Plus, the movie has Gerrard Butler, so I wasn’t optimistic about the books chances of improving drastically on such a great man. But, as I normally end up discovering – this book was better than the movie. And although I didn’t really cry as much as I expected, it certainly helped me to grow a heart and seriously think about my own loved ones.

Mum’s the Word by Kate Collins

This is the second Cozy Mystery series I’ve had the pleasure of reading. And I only bought it because I needed a book with a florist in it for a reading challenge (and then I didn’t get to read it in time. But anyhow…). Having said that. This was fun. This was light. A little lighter than the Vintage Magic Mystery series that got me into the genre. But still a great venture into mystery without all of the scariness of the other crime novels on my shelves.

The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

This book was completely amazing. I’ve only ever read one other story which features a woman with a social learning disability. In the last book, I thought she was mildly autistic, but that was never actually stated. In this, a lead who is autistic? It actually hit a little bit too close to home for my comfort. But that’s something that I need to figure out. Mostly, I just love the fact that this gorgeous romance is about someone who is a little off-kilter and different. Not the typical trope of a lead woman.

Larceny and Lace by Annette Blair

I loved this book just as much as the first one. It had that same sense of self and humour. That same quaint feeling of fun and enjoyment. Something which I really enjoy in my reading and shelves. Especially after a long, serious day of hard work… it just makes me so incredibly happy. And you know that there is going to be an easy, simple happy ending… even if this is a mystery about death.

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

I CANNOT believe how amazing this book was!!! Totally floored. Totally in love and completely gobsmacked by the awesomeness of this. I am totally obsessed with the movie, so I was kind of expecting to like that better (it rarely happens, but sometimes if I love the movie, the book falls flat). But that was not the case. This book neither ruined the movies for me, or made me never want to read the books again. I now have a double obsession, both for different reasons.

A Veiled Deception by Annette Blair

This is my first ever “cozy mystery” book and I truly had no idea what to expect. After all, what in the heck even is a cozy mystery? And how does this fit into my normal taste in books? I mostly just bought A Veiled Deception because I loved the other books I read by Annette Blair. Turns out that cozy mysteries are something that I really enjoy, and now I can’t wait to explore the genre even further!

The Scot, the Witch and the Wardrobe by Annette Blair

This is a beautiful, fantastic, breathtaking end to a beautiful little trilogy. It has the same level of cute, sweet, heart-happy overload of the first two books. But with just that little bit of extra magic thrown in to spice the pot. There’s nothing like fate, destiny and a magical spell or two to help sweep along the romance. To a beautiful Scotsman. With a serious attitude problem.

My Favorite Witch by Annette Blair

I’ve been waiting for this book to arrive on my doorstep for ages! I just loved The Kitchen Witch so much, and I couldn’t wait to read about one of her friends… I really wasn’t disappointed. So much so that I stayed up all night finishing this. Unable to put it down… I suppose having a good book by your side is one moment in which insomnia can actually work for you…

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

I wasn’t sure what to expect from the last book in this trilogy. P.S. I Still Love You annoyed me in a number of places, so I thought that I probably needed to take a break from Jenny Han’s writing. But, recently I felt that stirring on interest again and I picked up this book. I’m really glad that I did. There was a nice sense of completion in this story that you didn’t get from P.S. I Still Love You. And it was a nice way to send Lara Jean off to adulthood and college…
