I‘m so exited about this book! I‘ve been wanting it for ages (and though I‘m sure the hardback is much more appealing), I found it for $1.99 as an ebook, so I snatched it up!❤️📚

Aims42 I hadn‘t realized that I may be a tad OCD with my bookshelf organization until now😂 First by genre, then by height, BUT not tallest to shortest, it has to be mixed up 2mo
Zelma Mine is by height/type- hardbacks, trade paperbacks, smaller paperbacks all grouped together. but with the exception of reference grouped together. (edited) 2mo
rabbitprincess Stacked and double-stacked! I also sort roughly by genre, but room on the bookshelf is the primary consideration 😬 2mo

This was a 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ review from me! It had a very unique plot—heroine is an interior designer/hero is a former street urchin & duke‘s bastard—and the sexual tension (some of it is through letters) is HOT!!🔥I think my favorite part of the novel was, however, the heroine‘s backstory. Original, creative, and heartbreaking—all at the same time. Eloisa James does it again!💕💕💕

Ok, Litsy. I need your help!

I have a few weeks before I start the second round of revisions on my thesis, so I need some help choosing a book. From top left: a historical romance, a travel/food memoir, Fiction about an Indian family who suddenly make it rich (supposed to be super funny), and a guide to getting jobs after a PhD.

Any help is appreciated!📚❤️

People that call Jane Austen a “romance writer with no substance” just kill me. She was extremely satirical and was extremely perceptive. 💗💗💗

Johanna414 Yes! 5mo
Melissa_J Fully agree. I hate it when people refer to Pride and Prejudice as a romance novel. It‘s not. Yes, there is a love story in it, but just because a novel contains a love story doesn‘t automatically make it a romance novel. 5mo

Roomies | Christina Lauren
post image
Mehso-so

Christina Lauren is a hit or miss for me. Some books are incredibly nuanced and poignant. Others can be a little convoluted and unnecessary. Roomies, however, was kind of a mixture. It‘s got an interesting romance trope (fake marriage of convenience), a hot, Irish street musician, and a reference to Lin-Manuel Miranda. The steamy scenes and sexual tension were 🔥, but the plot was just clunky and weird.

raelaschoenherr I so agree when it comes to their books! 6mo

Today‘s #AnglophileApril prompt is an interesting one. The first thing I thought of for #boysdontcry is anything about autism and boys being different. My autistic 11-year-old has no problems crying or showing his feelings, and I adore it. I think we need more emotion in this world, especially in the boys we‘re raising. This is a fascinating book on neuro-diverse kids and the issues they face.

2. Probably Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit

3. It will forever and always be Scotland. I‘ve been once, and I wake up every day wanting to go back.🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

4. Definitely Romance. I can‘t get enough of them.💘

5. English, with a dash of Anglo-Saxon (Old English) that I had to learn for my Master‘s degree.📜
