Chloe Liese never disappoints! Her books always make me feel like I’m standing under the sun: warm and happy. I was super excited to dive into this installment because 1) it’s the Bergmans, and 2) the tropes in this book are right up my alley! In this book, you will find the sunshine and grump […]
I DNF’d this book at 69%. That is a lot of book to commit to, to not finish.Yet here we are. This is a book about a pretentious film studies “expert”, written by a pretentious film studies “expert” for other pretentious film studies “experts”. The incessant and unnecessary mention of obscure vintage television shows, actors […]
This was so freaking cute!! At first, I wasn’t sure if this book would be for me. The writing style wasn’t working for me for the first couple of chapters. However, that all changed when Wren sent emails to the 4 guys he almost kissed. Needless to say, after that, I was immediately invested. Never […]
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.
I read the first book in this series and loved it; naturally, this one automatically made this year’s anticipated-reads-list. And I was not disappointed. It’s a super cute, surprisingly sexy, heartfelt enemies-to-lovers romance that ticked quite a few of my ‘swoon’ boxes. Milo and Jasper actually were best friends when they were younger, so it’s […]
So badly I wanted to love this book. The premise was so amazing and the ensemble of characters was great! Going into this I was hoping for something similar to Casey’s previous novel. With this one I found it hard to connect with August. While I loved the idea of her, I found the way […]
QUEER BOOK OF THE YEAR! ALSO I NOW LIVE IN THE UNSEELIE SPRING COURT! Where to even begin?! I mean, that’s obvious, so without further ado… From the top! Ashley kicks this book off with a killer Prologue. Normally I find myself slipping during these drawling bits of info dumping, but not theirs. I was […]
