Spoiler Alert | Olivia Dade

Marcus‘s famous, but also secretly a fanfic writer. April‘s post causes a plus-size controversy. M publicly asks her out not knowing she‘s also his beta reader. After their date, he wants more of A, but will the hypercritical public get in the way?

This one had its cute & funny moments. I just didn‘t enjoy April kept negatively looking at herself; I know it‘s supposed to be an arc, but I don‘t enjoy those. I also wanted a little more spice.

Cassie‘s a natural at reading people. When a serial killer appears on the FBI‘s radar, they ask her to join the other Naturals. Her past catches up w/ her pertaining to her mother‘s murder. Could it be related to the case?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The clues kept me guessing throughout the book. I didn‘t like the MC very much, she was kind of annoying. I did like her chemistry w/ Michael & Dean. It had the right amount of romance w/o overpowering the mystery.

YA rom following the Davenport girls, 1 of the few wealthy black families, & their friends‘ love stories in 1910 USA. They will fall in love w/ the men they aren‘t supposed to. How will they tell their parents?

⭐️⭐️⭐️ I had high hopes 4 this book. It ended up being mostly boring. I didn‘t like most of the characters for most of the book. The girls‘ character arcs tho are great examples for how arcs should be in books. I also liked the diversity.

bookandbedandtea I'm 1/3 into this and I'm bored. Haven't decided if I'm going to push through. I had high hopes for this! 2mo

Sabrina has her whole life planned out, but 1 night w/ hockey player, Tucker changes everything for her. Tucker‘s trying to find a business to finance. He finds out he‘s going to be a dad, so he has to step up more. Will Tucker undo the chains Sabrina locked around herself?

I liked Tucker because of his arc. I didn‘t like Sabrina. There was some spice; I just wanted a little more. There was also a little unnecessary boring parts here & there.

Willa plays soccer, so usually professors would work with her schedule, but not her math professor. He suggests that she get tutored by his grumpy lumberjack-looking TA, Ryder, who also has a hearing deficiency. How will they overcome their negative perceptions of each other?

This one had its cute moments. I felt like the characters didn‘t have enough romantic chemistry. I did like the inclusivity of a character w/ a hearing deficiency.

The Fates have been released & Legend has taken the throne. Caraval is over, but a new challenge has begun for Tella. Will she find a way to take down the Fates? Does Legend really love her or was it all pretend?

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This one was ok. I didn‘t really expect some of the events leading up to the ending. I‘m glad there was a happy ending tho. It was a bit boring here & there. Overall, this series is overhyped. I was kinda disappointed.

Lily starts writing lyrics on her desk and someone finishes them. They start to exchange letters where they open up to each other. Could her secret pen pal be her crush, Lucas, or her enemy, Cade?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This one was a cute ya romance. The mystery wasn‘t really a mystery; it was obvious who it was from the beginning. The banter was cute, but I wanted more of it, and a little more romance.

Prince Harry‘s memoir goes from his earliest memories to his grandfather‘s funeral in 2021. He discusses his love and grief of his mother. Meeting, falling in love, and having a family w/ Megan. He also includes leaving the crown.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This one had its boring moments & crazy mind-blowing moments. It was interesting some of the interactions he included. He definitely had a character arc. It was also a bit repetitive.

Sophie works for a local florist shop & is applying for fashion design after high school. She has to attend all the events in town, but so does Andrew, the new chef‘s son. He tends to get on her nerves in the beginning, but throughout the year, she starts to not mind it.

3.5⭐️ This 1 was a little boring and I didn‘t like the characters very much. It was cute & funny here & there, & I liked the ending. I wanted a little more romance.

Stevie‘s a flight attendant for Zander‘s NHL plane. Zander‘s a player, so he‘s used to girls striving for his attention, but Stevie‘s not giving it to him, b/c she doesn‘t want to date another athlete. The longer they‘re on tour together, the more their feelings get blurred.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was probably my 2nd favorite book of 2023. It had a great balance of story & spice. I loved the character, the plot, & the writing. Definitely recommend.

Solitaire | Alice Oseman

Tori Spring‘s just trying to get through high school when she comes across the mysterious Solitaire. Michael Holden joins in on her search to unmask Solitaire.

I really liked the voice for the audiobook b/c it‘s the girl that‘s casted as Tori in the show Heartstopper. This one did have a darker tone compared to Heartstopper; maybe that‘s why it‘s not my reading vibe. Also, the mystery was kind of obvious.

Beatrice‘s obsessed w/ crime solving, but she has to keep it a secret b/c it‘s deemed inappropriate for a lady. When wealthy bachelor, Edmund, is murdered at a ball, she takes it upon herself to solve the mystery.

This 1 was really extremely for me up until the last 50 pgs. The comedy was a little cringy. I only liked one character & they weren‘t an MC. The murderer was obvious. The ending was ok, there was kind of a happy ending for everyone.

Declan has to get married in order to take over his grandfather company. His assistant, Iris, volunteers. They thought it would be simple to pretend to be in love while married. They didn‘t expect to actually grow feelings for each other.

This 1 had some funny parts and some cute parts. I wanted a little more spice. The writing could‘ve been better. I liked the first one better; I liked the characters just a little more.

It follows Twilight, but told in the point of view of Edward.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I surprisingly really enjoyed this one. It was better than Bella‘s POV. I loved the connection Edward and Alice shared, and how they communicated through their special abilities. It included some cool details, but also a couple boring scenes the book could‘ve done without. If you like Twilight, I would definitely recommend.

They barely survived the first battle. Grace has 2 build an army to defeat the King‘s & save not only her kind, but also everyone else. Jaxon‘s becoming someone she doesn‘t recognize & Hudson‘s closing himself off. Will the gargoyle army fight w/ her?
This 1 was good. Grace just really got on my nerves w/ her self-centernedness; assuming they‘re all fight b/c of her, even though they‘ve stated more than once they‘re not. I did like the ending tho.

This 1 was better than the 1st. There was more romance & mystery. It also had a great transition from the 1st. I‘m still not a big fan of the characters, but Tella‘s a little better.

Liz‘s forever crush, Michael, moves back home. She asks her boy-next-door Wes to help her in being Michael‘s date for prom. The more time they hang out, the less she imagines Michael as her prom date.

This book was ok. It was a bit overhyped. I liked the plot, writing, & ending. Also, their chemistry was cute & there were visible character arcs. I just didn‘t like the non-communication between all of the characters. It annoyed me throughout.

Michreader3 I read this book a while ago and really liked it. I feel the non-communication between the characters makes it realistic for a young love story. But I do get where it can be annoying, because it stretched out for a while. 8mo

I didn‘t enjoy this one very much. It was kind of boring. The plot was good, but the writing wasn‘t. I didn‘t like all but one of the characters (her soulmate); they had little to no arc.

This was the biggest disappointment of 2023 so far. I didn‘t enjoy the romance, plot, or story because it was boring. 3/4 of the way I didn‘t really care how it ended, I just wanted it to be over. I‘m just not a 2nd chance girlie.
