Hi everyone! Before getting into the review, I want to thank St. Martin’s Press & Wednesday Books for inviting me to be part of the blog tour for this amazing book and for giving an eARC of it so I could read it.

Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming ― mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger’s massive Twitter account.

Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in Pepper’s side. When he isn’t trying to duck out of his obscenely popular twin’s shadow, he’s busy working in his family’s deli. His relationship with the business that holds his future might be love/hate, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma’s iconic grilled cheese recipe, he’ll do whatever it takes to take them down, one tweet at a time.

All’s fair in love and cheese ― that is, until Pepper and Jack’s spat turns into a viral Twitter war. Little do they know, while they’re publicly duking it out with snarky memes and retweet battles, they’re also falling for each other in real life ― on an anonymous chat app Jack built.

As their relationship deepens and their online shenanigans escalate ― people on the internet are shipping them?? ― their battle gets more and more personal, until even these two rivals can’t ignore they were destined for the most unexpected, awkward, all-the-feels romance that neither of them expected.

Tweet Cute is a fun, adorable and witty book full of mouth-watering food, Twitter wars, sassy teenagers and complicated family relationships.

The main characters, Pepper and Jack, are both lovable characters; Pepper is determined and sassy, while Jack is kind and funny and both of them have flaws and insecurities that make them feel like real people. Pepper and Jack’s relationship starts with them feeling a mix between curiosity and irritation towards each other and it evolves into a tentative friendship then a very close frienship and finally a romantic relationship. Seening the development of their relationship is heartwarming and sweet and one of the best parts of the story. This book has a slow-burn, adorable romance between two very different people who have a strong connection.

Twitter plays an important part in the development of their relationship because Pepper and Jack run the social media accounts for their family restaurants and get into an anonymous Twitter war, which was really entertaining to read because both Pepper and Jack can be incredibly snarky and also because the author uses very current references to memes and pop culture to make the Twitter exchanges feel real and be engaging for the reader. Nonetheless, the Twitter war doesn’t remain anonymous for long and it ends up both bring Pepper and Jack closer together but also creating conflict in their relationship.

But Twitter is not the only online space where Jack and Pepper’s lives anonymously entertwine becuase it turns out that they have been talking to each other through an anonymous app for students of their school. After reading the synopsis, it’s easy to believe that this is gonna be a big part of the story, but that’s not the case and it actually feels like adding this element to the story doesn’t really contribute much to Pepper and Jack’s relationship because most of their interactions in the app happen before the book starts. Nonetheless, the few exchanges on the app that are present in the book are entertaining and including this element doesn’t take anything away from the story, so it’s not a big deal.

While the online exchanges play a part in Pepper and Jack’s relationship, this book focuses a lot on their interactions and their connection in real life and that works really well and it makes the story more charming and appealing. Another thing that works really well is the dual perspective because that way we get to know both characters better and they feel more three dimentional but also because it makes this story actually feel like the story of both of them as individuals and as a couple. Lastly, this book does a very good job of depicting complicated relationships with family members, wether it’s with parents or siblings. This element adds depth to the story and it makes it more relatable.

Overall, Tweet Cute is an engaging and entertaining story which focuses on an adorable romance between two characters that are very different from each other but that have an amazing relationship.

Small Town Hearts

Title: Small Town Hearts

Author: Lillie Vale

Published by: Swoon Reads

Publishing date: March 19th 2019

Genre: Contemporary

Pages: 336

Rule #1 – Never fall for a summer boy. 

Fresh out of high school, Babe Vogel should be thrilled to have the whole summer at her fingertips. She loves living in her lighthouse home in the sleepy Maine beach town of Oar’s Rest and being a barista at the Busy Bean, but she’s totally freaking out about how her life will change when her two best friends go to college in the fall. And when a reckless kiss causes all three of them to break up, she may lose them a lot sooner. On top of that, her ex-girlfriend is back in town, bringing with her a slew of memories, both good and bad.

And then there’s Levi Keller, the cute artist who’s spending all his free time at the coffee shop where she works. Levi’s from out of town, and even though Babe knows better than to fall for a tourist who will leave when summer ends, she can’t stop herself from wanting to know him. Can Babe keep her distance, or will she break the one rule she’s always had – to never fall for a summer boy?

GOODREADS | AMAZON BOOK DEPOSITORY

Trigger Warnings: manipulative friendship, mention of casual drug usage (weed, not shown on the page), alcohol consumption (on page) and alcohol abuse (a character drinks and parties to the point of dehydration and sleep-deprivation; two characters get wasted and are too drunk to fully consent to sex with each other).

Small Town Heart is an angsty book about love and friendship, but mainly about not holding so strongly to people that you don’t let them change and grow and that you don’t allow yourself to change and grow. The book is full of complex relationships and fascinating discussions about growing up.

The main character, Babe, is naïve, indecisive, scared of change and a pushover at the beginning of the book, but she develops as a character and I really enjoyed seeing that. She embraces the fact that people don’t always stay the same, they change, and she should be able to change to, she should be able to grow as a person. One thing that I abolutely loved about Babe and about this book is that she is unapologetically bisexual and eveyone accepts that, it’s normal, it’s not an issues and it’s fantastic.

The love interest, Levi, was sweet, honest and mature. I really liked him, and I didn’t quite understand why he put up with Babe being so indecisive for such a big portion of this book. Nonetheless, their relationship was thoughtful and sweet, and I enjoyed their scenes together.

Now, in terms of Babe’s best friends, Penny was a fascinating character to me because I hated her at the beginning, she was manipulative, insensitive and mean.  But as the book continues it’s evident that she is a more complex character, she makes some good points about change and about growing up that Babe needed to consider and accept. Nonetheless, that doesn’t excuse the way she behaved throughout the story and I liked the way this ended regarding her friendship with Babe. On the other hand, I don’t think there’s enough in this book about Chad to know him at all and the few scenes he has in this book made him look like an inconsiderate, pushover, oblivious guy.

I loved Babe’s coworker and friend, Lily and her boyfriend Lorcan. They are so cute and I really want a book about how everything started between them, because they are definitely one of my favorite part of the book.

The setting of this book is captivating, it’s this small seaside town, where everyone knows each other, where there are amazing sea food and desserts, beautiful landscapes, a sand castles competition and an awesome lighthouse where the main character lives. It honestly sounded like a magical place to live and it has a very big role in the story.

The plot gets a bit repetitive, the interactions between Babe and Levi always start cute and meaningful, but most of them end with Babe freaking out about Levi being a summer boy and getting weird and leaving, which I could understand at the beginning, but it kept happening again and again and it became a bit frustrating. Also, there is a point were the drama between Babe and Penny and Chad, got really repetitive as well.

Overall, Small Town Heart is a book for people who enjoy complicated firendships, sweet romances and books that have a bittersweet feel to them.

The playlist has songs that remind me of Babe and her relationship with Levi, a song that reminds me of Penny and even a song that reminds me of Babe’s relationship with her ex-girlfriend. I hope you enjoy it!

Lillie ValeLillie Vale, upon discovering she could not be one of Santa’s elves or attend Hogwarts, decided to become a writer to create a little magic of her own. Enjoying the romantic and eerie in equal measure, she’s probably always writing a book where the main characters kiss or kill. Born in Mumbai, she has lived in many U.S. states, and now resides in an Indiana college town where the corn whispers and no one has a clue that she is actually the long-lost caps lock queen.

Small Town Hearts is her debut novel.

Blog Tour: Graham’s Delicacies by Em Ali (Review + Playlist)

Review Graphic

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be a part of the blog tour for an amazing book that I have been highly anticipating. Today, I’m bringing you a review of the book and a playlist  that I did based on it!

Graham-Delicacies-Cover.jpg

Title: Graham’s Delicacies

Author: Em Ali

Published by: Blue Latte House

Publishing date: March 5th 2019

Genre: Romance

Pages: 227

Saccharine:  Jen goes to work, agonizes over college, and looks forward to the stolen moments in the kitchen. There she can watch Emilie bake love into every morsel. Their delicate friendship takes a step towards a budding romance, but will Jen’s anxiety help them survive their first hurdle?

Delectable: James has never been kissed but he wants to be. Especially by his co-worker Sam, who he can’t talk to without turning into a little jerk. Sam is made of all the good stuff, but will James’ deepest insecurities allow him to kiss the boy?

Ravenous: Alex won’t let some foodie with a video camera bash their beloved bakery, even if it means to be petty. Except they’re nowhere ready for Yujin, the one who got away and is now romancing them. Will Alex’s pride let them see the gold heart the bashful king hides?

Goodreads | Amazon

I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review

Trigger warnings: anxiety, mention of parental death, misgendering (challenged on page), alcohol and sexual content.

Graham’s Delicacies is the fluffy book of my dreams. If you are looking for diverse romance stories with low angst and so much cuteness that you’ll smile most of the time while reading them, Graham’s Delicacies is for you!

There are three queer love stories in this book: Saccharine, Delectable and Ravenous,  and they were all lovely and captivating.

Saccharine is about Jen (she/her), a Black bisexual women with anxiety, and Emilie (they/ their, but she/her for special people), a chubby and anxious nonbinary baker. They are really cute and soft together, but they also have sexy moments. Em’s a really shy character and seeing them be confident and take charge during sex was amazing. Also, I loved Em’s cats, they are named after their favorite Disney princesses! Basically, this story couldn’t get cuter even if it tried.

James and Sam are mentioned a lot in Saccharine, because Jen and Em can tell that they like each other even if they are oblivious to it. By the time the first story was over, I was really excited to finally see how everything played out with James and Sam and I was not disappointed with their story.

Delectable is definitely the story I liked the most in this book, mainly because the dynamic between Sam and James is my favorite. When they are together the atraction and tension is palpable, honestly, I can’t believe how oblivious they were. Also, the flirting in this story is on point, Sam and James have so much chemestry and they are playful but bashful and it’s really entertaining to read. This story shows glimpses of James family and it was amazing, his relationship with his younger siblings is adorable and I would love to read more about his relationship with his twin, Clara, since it’s a bit complicted.

Ravenous is the story of Alex, a nonbinary baker (they/them) and Yujin, a Korean foodie vlogger (he/his). It’s the story with the coolest concept, since the characters have a one night stand and then find each other again after Yujin gives Graham’s a bad review. While I really liked the concept, I had a problem with the way Alex behaves when they meet again, they act like a jerk and, while they apologize later on, what didn’t make sense to me is that Yujin keeps trying even when Alex is behaving that way. Nonetheless, this story redeem itself with some very domestic and adorables scenes between the character and a really sweet ending.

Lastly, I would like to mention that my main issue with this book is that it needs better editing, especially, when it comes to the excesive use of pronouns at some points in the book. There were other little mistakes with phrases and words that didn’t really bother me, but I did have an issue with the fact that sometimes there are so many pronouns in a paragraph that it’s hard to tell who they are refering to and that makes certain scenes confusing.

Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking for sweet, fluffy stories about POC and queer characters

Rating: 4 stars 

And finally, here’s the playlist I made imspired by this book,  I think the lyrics of the songs go well with the stories. I hope you enjoy it!

Blog Tour: Mirage by Somaiya Daud (Review + Giveaway)

Mirage-Banner-FFBC

I’m so excited to be part of the blog tour for such an amazing book! If you want to check out the other stops of the tour, here’s the tour schedule.

Mirage-Cover

Book: Mirage (Book #1 in the Mirage series)

Author: Somaiya Daud

Publisher: Flatiron Books

Release date: August 28, 2018

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Science Fiction

In a star system dominated by the brutal Vathek empire, eighteen-year-old Amani is a dreamer. She dreams of what life was like before the occupation; she dreams of writing poetry like the old-world poems she adores; she dreams of receiving a sign from Dihya that one day, she, too, will have adventure, and travel beyond her isolated moon.

But when adventure comes for Amani, it is not what she expects: she is kidnapped by the regime and taken in secret to the royal palace, where she discovers that she is nearly identical to the cruel half-Vathek Princess Maram. The princess is so hated by her conquered people that she requires a body double, someone to appear in public as Maram, ready to die in her place.

As Amani is forced into her new role, she can’t help but enjoy the palace’s beauty—and her time with the princess’ fiancé, Idris. But the glitter of the royal court belies a world of violence and fear. If Amani ever wishes to see her family again, she must play the princess to perfection…because one wrong move could lead to her death.

Mirage is a wonderfully written sci-fi story, with amazing characters and a rich setting, that provides a message about the importance of culture and traditions, especially for communities that have had a lot taken from them,  that it’s really important in the times we are living in. 

This is definitely a character driven story, the plot moves really slowly, not a lot of things happen and there’s no that much action. So if you prefer plot drive, action packed books, this may not be for you. BUT if you are like me and prefer character focused books, you’ll really enjoyed this one. I was absolutely captivated by the characters, especially Maram and Amani, the princess and the body double. In one hand, Amani is a relatable and likable character; she isn’t trained to be a fighter, she isn’t great at strategy, she is just a girl that is put in a difficult situation and manages to survive. On the other hand, Maram is cruel and arrogant, but as the story unfolds, her backstory is revealed and it’s easy to see that she is conflicted by a lot of the things that have happened and it’s trapped between what it’s expected of her and who she wants to be. Honestly, she is such a complex character and probably my favorite in this book. 

The romance is very prominent  in this story and, at the beginning, I didn’t know how to feel about it because I thought it was gonna be insta-love, but then as the story progresses, I realized there’s instant attraction, but then there’s enought moments and conversations between the two characters to show why they fell in love. They have a lot in common and they are in similar situations, so they understand each other.

Now, going back to the plot,  it was not the most original and unique plot. It follow the line of a girl from a lower class taken to the palace to perform some kind of task that put her life in risk to protect the conquering queen or king and then becoming friends with people in the palace and later on joining the rebelion.  BUT the fact that it is Moroccan inspired, added the uniqueness that was missing from the plot, there were so many elements of this wolrd, in term of history, religion and traditions that felt new and interesting and especial, because they haven’t been portrait in sci-fi before and that defintely made me enjoy this book more.

Another thing that I think it’s worth mentioning is that this felt a lot more like a fantasy than a Sci-fi book. I think that has to do with the fact that the plot has elements that are common in YA fantasy books and that maybe aren’t as common in Sci-fi. Also, there are mythological creatures and gods in this story and they are given a lot more attention than things like space travel and the technology behind the androids that serve as guards.

Mirage is beautifully written, it has complex and fascinating characters, Moroccan inspired setting and traditions that give it a unique touch, and a  mix between sci-fi and fantasy elements that also make it seem new and exciting. For those reasons I enjoyed my time reading it inmensly.

Blog Tour: Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid (Review+Giveaway)

MOI BT  BANNER.jpg

I was highly anticipating this book, it is the end of a series that I really enjoyed, but also it revolves around a couple that has been teased for a while and which I had been intrigued by for a long time. So imagine my surpise and my absolute joy when I recieved an email saying that I was getting an arc of this book as part of the blog tour. I was so excited that I felt like I was gonna start crying at my desk while all my coworkers were around me.  I say this to establish that my expectation for this book were extremely high, I’m not sure it enterily met those expectations but I was not disappointed either.

marriage of inconvenience

Title: Marriage of Inconvenience

Author: Penny Reid

Publishing date:  March 6th 2018

Genre: Romance, Contemporary

Pages: 510

There are three things you need to know about Kat Tanner (aka Kathleen Tyson. . . and yes, she is *that* Kathleen Tyson): 1) She’s determined to make good decisions, 2) She must get married ASAP, and 3) She knows how to knit. Being a billionaire heiress isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. In fact, it sucks. Determined to live a quiet life, Kat Tanner changed her identity years ago and eschewed her family’s legacy. But now, Kat’s silver spoon past has finally caught up with her, and so have her youthful mistakes. To avoid imminent disaster, she must marry immediately; it is essential that the person she chooses have no romantic feelings for her whatsoever and be completely trustworthy.
Fortunately, she knows exactly who to ask. Dan O’Malley checks all the boxes: single, romantically indifferent to her, completely trustworthy. Sure, she might have a wee little crush on Dan the Security Man, but with clear rules, expectations, and a legally binding contract, Kat is certain she can make it through this debacle with her sanity—and heart—all in one piece. Except, what happens when Dan O’Malley isn’t as indifferent—or as trustworthy—as she thought?

Goodreads | Amazon 

My favorite thing about this book is the main characters, Dan and Kat, and the relationship between them. Dan and Kat are very engaging characters that made me want to keep reading their story. I think Kat is relatable character with her shyness, anxiety and all her little quirks, but also with her caring nature and her strenght. On the other hand, Dan is patient, respectful and caring but also mischivious and funny. They complemented each other quite well and had some really good scenes together.  It was fun to watch their relationship grow as they became closer and as their bond became stronger. Also, the whole marriage of convenience is a trope that I really enjoy.

My second favorite thing about this book is that we got to see the camaraderie and loyalty between the women of the knitting group and their support of Kat throughout this story. They were there to defend her (there’s a scene where the ladies and their boyfriends/husbands confront Kat’s cousin and it’s such a great scene!). Also, they were there to help Kat through a very sad situation that she has to deal with. I think that’s what makes this series so especial to me: it’s about this group of woman supporting, loving and respecting each other throught all the ups and downs of life.

One of my issue with this book was the fact that it had some similar plot elements to other books in the series and since I read those books not so long ago, it felt like it was more of the same and it was a bit repetitive. Don’t get me wrong, there were things I liked: the  pharmaceutical  industry storyline was interesting ( even if it was solved a little too easily) and I think Penny Reid always chooses really thought provoking background themes for her novels. Nonetheless, elements like the kidnapping felt unneccesary and repetitive since it happens in a lot of the books in the series. Other issue I had with this book is that the villain of the story was not that smart, was not that interesting  and was pretty much one-dimentional.

Overall, the characters and the relationship between them is what makes this series , but particulary this book, so magical. Thanks to that I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, even if I did have some issues with the plot.  Before finishing this review, I just wanted to mention that I really, really, really want a longer version of the epilogue to be publish, please!!

Blog Tour: Fear the Drowning Deep by Sarah Glenn Marsh (Book Review)

Fear the Drowning Deep was one of my most anticipated debut novels of 2016, I was able to participate in a chat with the author Sarah Glenn Marsh, where I discovered what this book was about, and since then I was anticipating its release. So, you can imagine my excitement when I found out I was chosen to be a part of the blog tour! I could believe that I was gonna have the chance to read this before release date, that the wait for this book was over. I read this immediately when I received the eARC and I can happily say that I was not disappointed.

 

Title: Fear the Drowning Deep

Author: Sarah Glenn Marsh

Published by:   Sky Pony Press

Publishing date: October 11th 2016

Genre: Fantasy, YA, Historical Fiction

Pages: 304

Witch’s apprentice Bridey Corkill has hated the ocean ever since she watched her granddad dive in and drown with a smile on his face. So when a dead girl rolls in with the tide in the summer of 1913, sixteen-year-old Bridey suspects that whatever compelled her granddad to leap into the sea has made its return to the Isle of Man.

Soon, villagers are vanishing in the night, but no one shares Bridey’s suspicions about the sea. No one but the island’s witch, who isn’t as frightening as she first appears, and the handsome dark-haired lad Bridey rescues from a grim and watery fate. The cause of the deep gashes in Fynn’s stomach and his lost memories are, like the recent disappearances, a mystery well-guarded by the sea. In exchange for saving his life, Fynn teaches Bridey to master her fear of the water — stealing her heart in the process.

Now, Bridey must work with the Isle’s eccentric witch and the boy she isn’t sure she can trust — because if she can’t uncover the truth about the ancient evil in the water, everyone she loves will walk into the sea, never to return.

 

Fear the drowning deep was a captivating tale with an atmosphere that was mysterious and spooky and that made the story feel incredibly unique. The mythological aspect and the traditions of the Isle of Man also made this book fascinating and they gave the story a magical feeling that’s not like anything I have read before. The writing style went perfectly with the story; the descriptions were written particularly well, and they were never boring or pointless, they helped create that eerie and unsettling atmosphere, which was one of the strongest parts of this book.

The characters were interesting, and by the time I finished reading the book, I was hoping that it was longer, so I could know more about them. I loved the fact that family played such a key role in the book; I particularly enjoyed the relationships Bridey had with each of her sisters. I love books with strong relationship between female characters and I love the fact that lately there are more authors, like Sarah Glenn Marsh, willing to write about that kind of relationships. Going back to the characters of the book, I was really intrigued by Morag; she was a very mysterious and complex character, and I was actually very surprised when the truth about her story was revealed.

My only little issue with this book was that the romance was not entirely believable; actually, it was a bit instalovey.  Even if the romantic relationship was not the strongest part of the story, it didn’t take that much away from it either; even when it was a very prominent part of the book. I think it didn’t take away from the story, because at the end, even if it started out of nowhere, it developed and there were a lot of sweet moments.

The finale confrontation was not very dramatic, but I think it went well with the whole style of the book. Also, one of my favorite parts was the epilogue; I loved the fact that the book maintained the mysterious tone until the end.

Rating: 4 stars
