I love the warm feeling that the holidays bring. Seeing that this book would revolve around Christmas, I knew it was a must read and I was excited to read about these best friends. Nick and Noel embodied the warm feeling of love and comfort that every Hallmark Christmas movie captures. Their dialogue and complete […]
From TJ Klune, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The House in the Cerulean Sea, comes Under the Whispering Door, a new contemporary fantasy about a ghost who refuses to cross over and the ferryman he falls in love with.
When a reaper comes to collect Wallace Price from his own funeral, Wallace suspects he really might be dead.
Instead of leading him directly to the afterlife, the reaper takes him to a small village. On the outskirts, off the path through the woods, tucked between mountains, is a particular tea shop, run by a man named Hugo. Hugo is the tea shop’s owner to locals and the ferryman to souls who need to cross over.
But Wallace isn’t ready to abandon the life he barely lived. With Hugo’s help he finally starts to learn about all the things he missed in life.
When the Manager, a curious and powerful being, arrives at the tea shop and gives Wallace one week to cross over, Wallace sets about living a lifetime in seven days.
By turns heartwarming and heartbreaking, this absorbing tale of grief and hope is told with TJ Klune’s signature warmth, humor, and extraordinary empathy.
Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres and Our Woman in Moscow is surprisingly the first book by Beatriz Williams I’ve read.

Though Williams uses some dual timeline structuring that is extremely common in historical fiction, I found it […]
I feel like a word that will always come to mind with this book is enchanting. This book made me swoon, sigh, cry, and laugh. Allllll of the emotions. I felt such a connection to Gracie with her love for fairy tales and daydreaming her dream life and love life. She was such an incredible […]
After reading Today Tonight Tomorrow by Rachel Lynn Solomon, I knew that I was going to love this book—and I was correct!! Rachel Lynn Solomon has this unique way of writing stories and characters that I immediately fall in love with, and that is exactly what happened with Quinn and Tarek. I connected with Quinn […]
This book had a strong prologue and introduced the main plot of the series but I had a hard time getting past the first 20% of the book. I felt like it dragged on a little, but after it the book picked up very fast. It follows the events of the first book in this […]
“Enemies-to-lovers—it’s our trope, Buxbaum.” I ABSOLUTELY adored Painter’s cute as hell YA rom-com, Better Than the Movies!! It’s a rom-com about rom-com cliches, with two childhood frienemies, fake dating, lots of lol moments – what more could I have asked for?! Nothing. I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I actually did and […]
Ok, the premise of “The House Swap” by Jo Lovett is darling!! Think, my favorite movie, “The Holiday”, but the love interests don’t meet in their vacation locales. They are the ones doing the swapping! It would make a great movie, so someone should really get on that, just sayin’. I will start by saying: […]
