More mini reviews from books I’ve enjoyed to varying degrees over the last few weeks.
#Starstruck by Sariah Wilson
Release Date: July 27, 2021
Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé
Release Date: June 1, 2021
Where It All Lands by Jennie Wexler
Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 Stars)
Release Date: July 6, 2021
The parallel stories complimented each other perfectly without feeling repetitive. I loved Drew and Shane’s friendship, but the romance didn’t do much for me honestly. But I did really enjoy seeing Drew, Shane, and Stevie grow closer together over the course of the story. And I like the ambiguous ending too – it, like the trio, was filled with possibility.

If the Show Fits by Julie Murphy
Release Date: August 3, 2021
Well, this was an absolute delight to read.
If the Shoe Fits is a modernized Cinderella retelling that merges a fairy tale romance and a reality dating show perfectly to have the whirl wind and whimsy you’d expect, along with the drama and sexual tension you want. I love how Julie Murphy brought this story to life – giving a fat girl the chance to shine and find her prince charming, building a supportive and caring family around Cindy (who needs shrewd or cruel step family, when you can have a full cast of characters you genuinely enjoy), and the humor and personality in the dating show and the other contestants was fantastic. This story kept me completely entertained and I could not put it down – which is probably why I finished it in one sitting. If the Show Fits is a fast-paced, fashion-filled romp you won’t want to miss.
