Recent Reads Mini Reviews

More mini reviews from books I’ve enjoyed to varying degrees over the last few weeks.

You Had Me at Hola by Alexis Daria

You Had Me at Hola

Rating: ★★★★☆
Release Date: August 4, 2020

I think the best way I can describe this story is: addictive. I just didn’t want to stop listening sn fI had to know what was happening next. Ashton and Jasmine have incredible chemistry and I loved seeing their genuine relationship develop throughout the story. The heavy focus of family and it’s respective importance to the two leads was a welcomed surprise and the telenovela scenes incorporated into the story was perfect. You Had Me at Hola is filled with glamour, charm, and heart and I loved every second of it!

Say You Remember Me by K.A. Tucker

Say You Still Love Me

Release Date: August 6, 2019

A great second chance romance. I was a little more invested in the current (“now”) timeline of the story, but seeing the innocent beginnings at summer camp was cute! I really like Piper as a character, and thought her chemistry with Kyle was great too. Overall, just a fun story.

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

All the Bright Places

Rating: ★★★★☆
Release Date: January 6, 2015

I know this is a very decisive book, but it packed a great emotional punch so I was obviously invested. It’s heartbreaking and joyous – a perfect blend on a bittersweet journey.

A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow by Laura Taylor Namey

A Cuban Girl's Guide to Tea and Tomorrow

Rating: ★★★★☆
Release Date: November 10, 2020

The amount of family and heart in this story brought me pure joy – and the amazing food descriptions brought me jealousy. I loved Lila’s story from the very beginning, but the last quarter or so completely stole my heart. This is a beautiful story of family and healing that wraps you up in a cozy cardigan and fills your heart with warmth. A perfect feel-good story about embracing your future.

I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
