Recent Reads Mini Reviews

I’ve had a lot more mini reviews lately, but I’m just going with it, so here are some of the books Ive enjoyed to varying degrees over the last few weeks.

Would Like to Meet by Rachel Winters

Would Like to Meet

Rating:  ★★★☆☆
Release Date: December 3, 2019

What an adorably cute romcom wrapped up in a hilarious screenplay inspired novel. Would Like to Meet takes the best of the wonderful world of romance: the meet cute, and playes out each scenario as aspiring agent/screenwriter Evie Summers seeks a promotion by inspiring a Holllywood IT writer into not dismissing the romance genre. This had a lot of funny moments with some genuinely sweet romance moments as well. The conflict at the end was a bit rushed and lackluster, but overall the story was a lot of fun.

Wild and Crooked by Leah Thomas

Wild and Crooked

Rating: ★★★☆
Release Date: June 4, 2019

There’s more than one way to be a fragile person.

The strong family and frienship elements in this story were my absolute favorite parts. Kalyn and Gus immediately form this connection as Kalyn begins school in a new town, but both are keeping complicated secrets about their pasts and their unknown connection. While I loved the relationships that developed throughout the story, I didn’t really like the characters. Kalyn, especially bugged me with her ‘Rose’ persona, and I thought Phil’s perspective could have nbeen left out completely. But overall, I thought the story was enjoyable, especially once we got to Kalyn and Gus investigating more into their past.

How to Speak Boy by Tiana Smith

How to Speak Boy

Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 Stars)
Release Date: January 7, 2020

This was a lot of fun and Quinn and Grayson has a great and flirty enemies to lovers situation which is always enjoyable. This was such a quick and engaging read – super addicting and pure fun. My main complaint is the big time jumps that happen within the story, it makes it a bit harder to buy some of the development between the characters. And I could have done without Quinn’s friend Carter, but other than that this was an enjoyable read that had a quintessential romcom feel.
