Book Review: My True Love Gave to Me, edited by Stephanie Perkins

When I saw just how STUNNING the UK edition of My True Love Gave to Me was, I had to go out and buy a copy. My desire to stroke all the pretty covers ever demanded it. It was the first time I ever read a short story anthology, and for the most part I enjoyed it! As expected, some stories are better than others, and some just don’t get enough depth or space by nature of their shortness. But with the shared holiday theme and my timely reading of it, this was delightful! Midnights by Rainbow Rowell: 5/5 Rowell’s story is all about New […]

Book Review: Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Book Review: Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

With Isla and the Happily Ever After selected as our October book club book, I finally got around to reading Lola and the Boy Next Door. Cute? Definitely. Swoony? A little. Enjoyable and refreshing? Hell yes. Stephanie Perkins is the place to be for wonderful contemporary romances. What stands out most about Lola and the Boy Next Door is its main character.

In fact, she designs her own clothes, which is super awesome. Crazy […]

Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Writing this review may be one of the hardest things in the world because… how do you gush and still sound original when the whole rest of the world has read and loved this book? Their reviews are no doubt much more eloquent than mine. The solution? GIFS. Basically, the following is the result of reading this book: This book is straight up romance but it is of the highest quality and hard to resist. Slow build up? Check. Swoon-worthy boy? MEGA check.
