One of the main reasons I was super excited to read Honey Girl was because of the main character Grace. Grace has finally finished her schooling and now has her Ph.D. in Astronomy. She’s been working on her degree for 11 years. Now, she’s not sure what she wants to do. So much of her […]
Sixteen years ago, a teenaged Will Sterling saw—or rather, heard—the girl of his dreams. Standing beneath an apartment building balcony, he shared a perfect moment with a lovely, warm-voiced stranger. It’s a memory that’s never faded, though he’s put so much of his past behind him. Now an unexpected inheritance has brought Will back to that same address, where he plans to offload his new property and get back to his regular life as an overworked doctor. Instead, he encounters a woman, two balconies above, who’s uncannily familiar . . .
No matter how surprised Nora Clarke is by her reaction to handsome, curious Will, or the whispered pre-dawn conversations they share, she won’t let his plans ruin her quirky, close-knit building. Bound by her loyalty to her adored grandmother, she sets out to foil his efforts with a little light sabotage. But beneath the surface of their feud is an undeniable connection. A balcony, a star-crossed couple, a fateful meeting—maybe it’s the kind of story that can’t work out in the end. Or maybe, it’s the perfect second chance . . .
The hype of this book made me very nervous to start reading it in the first place, especially because I essentially knew nothing about it beyond the fact that it was basically an interview with a very famous fictional actress.

[…]
Red, White & Royal Blue In Space!! I seriously LOVED this book! It was so cute and so sweet and filled my heart. But also, a bit like a murder mystery which I found quite fun! At some points I found myself getting frustrated with the lack of communication between Kiem and Jainan. I mean […]
This book was not what I expected it to be. It was so much more. As we go through the story of Amelia and her life without Jenna the author shows the true sides of what it’s like to struggle with mental illness, to struggle with the death of a loved one. On many occasions […]
This will be a spoiler-free review. I was instantly drawn to this book from the moment I read the synopsis and saw the comparisons to both Josie Silver and Jojo Moyes, who write beautifully heart-wrenching books. After reading this book, I can tell you that The Last Goodbye is just as beautifully written. I knew […]
I will pretty much jump at any chance to read a book written with and for the Vietnamese American experience and A Pho Love Story is no exception. This romantic comedy is a cute twist on the Romeo & Juliet trope – if Romeo and Juliet were Vietnamese American young adults whose parents own rival […]
