I LOVE Spotify, so I‘m really loving this little trend of publishers making playlists to accompany books to create an extra bit of buzz.....
These are four I‘ve come across and enjoyed, and I‘ve attached a great article from ‘Bustle‘ that pairs Spotify playlists with books! 🎶💕🎵💕

squirrelbrain Sounds great - I shall investigate further... 🎶😁❤️ 4mo
4thhouseontheleft I like this too! I have been listening to the playlist to go along with 4mo
Cinfhen Thanks for sharing!!!! Super excited to check out the playlists & article #screenshot 🥰🥰🥰 4mo

A fun, clever, twisty-in-a-light-way novel about a presidential election seen from the POVs of the SOs surrounding key figures in the campaign. My only complaint: There is one female candidate in the election. Having her husband as a POV character would've been really great. But this was very enjoyable. I'll read more from this author.

Wasn‘t sure when I started this. Seemed like too many characters to follow. And it sort of was too many. But I was still interested and mostly enjoyed it. Having lived in DC for 10 fun years and sitting in a remote Western AU town now, I enjoyed visiting the city through a book. A bit homesick now!

An average chick lit book. Full review on my blog: oddandbookish.wordpress.com

I think I just had my hopes set too high for this book. The characters and the plot fell flat. There were a few romantic moments that were good. I think the reason I finished this was to see who won.

Just finished up Campaign Widows by Aimee Agresti. Cute premise, but I felt the story was a bit predictable. It‘s fun a read in a rom-com West Wing vibe. For what it‘s worth, I definitely prefer the ARC cover over the final cover.

“SATC meets The West Wing” said the blurb. I‘m not sure the dialogue is as whip-smart as Aaron Sorkin‘s but I definitely had a similarly huge amount of affection for all of the book‘s characters as I did with these 2 shows. This is more accurately “SATC in DC” with sassy, smart and endearing characters, true friendships and lots of fluff, set against a back drop of an all too familiar crazy election cycle. A proper feel good romantic comedy.👍💕
