Campaign Widows | Aimee Agresti

Mehso-so

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.

A Hope Divided | Alyssa Cole

A Hope Divided is the second book in Alyssa Cole‘s Loyal League trilogy, and I absolutely adored it! Very smart and informative, and at its core is a romance that is built on breaking down assumptions and building trust.

Just finished The Fifth Season for the second time. Now I‘m reading the sequel, The Obelisk Gate (again) to prepare myself for the final book in the trilogy. This is my favorite fantasy series in the past few years! 🌝🌙🌚

#NewProfilePicture 📚I wrote about the Best Genre Subway Reads on 80 Books Blog | https://80booksblog.com/2018/02/02/best-genre-subway-reads/

The Royal We is a fun read, like Prince William and Kate Middleton fan fiction. Now I‘m obsessed with The Crown and Harry & Megan. It‘s one of the only books that made me cry on the subway. I loved it so much!

The most perfect shirt for book nerds! I bought this shirt online from Joanie Clothing. It‘s such a popular shirt, I‘ve been watching for my size for a while!

Also, Literally Me speaks to me on so many levels. It‘s hilarious and the illustrations are amazing. I also follow the author on Instagram and her posts are so relatable. Definitely give this a read!

Loved this alt-history western! Set in late 1800s Louisiana, a team of scoundrels is assembled to remove the feral hippo population that lives in the marshes near the Gulf. I loved all the characters, the romance, diversity (PoC & LGBTQ rep!), and pacing. Definitely a fun read! It's a novella so you get through it so fast!
