February 2018 Wrap Up


Life Update

February was a really good month, full of happy moments and events that I was highly anticipating:

  • I finally finished my internship and I’m so glad about it. Well, except for the fact that I’m unemployed now, but I’m hoping to find something else soon.
  • I reunited with a lot of my friends that I hadn’t seen in a while and I laughed more than I had in a long time.
  • I graduated from university! I’m officially an anthropologist and a political scientist.

What I read 

1984 by George Orwell (4 stars)

I didn’t enjoy reading this book, but I found it perturbing and thought provoking. The concept is what makes this book interesting, especially the parallels Orwell draws with the society and the time he lived in and the imagination required to envision a future based on what he saw around him.

The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory (3,6 stars) 

I  really liked the first half of this books, it was full of cute, romantic and even some relatively steamy moments. I feel like the second half when the issues between the characters start appearing they were dragged out.

Illegal Contact by Santino Hassell (4 stars) 

This book has characters you’ll fall in love with and the banter and chemestry between them is incredible and makes their dynamic captivating. Here’s my review.

Marriage of Inconvenience by Penny Reid (3,8 stars) 

I was so excited to recieve an arc of this that I almost cried. I really liked the characters in this book and even if they were some plot points that were similar to other books in the series, this book still had unique plot elements that I enjoyed.

The Cruel PrinceThe Cruel Prince by Holly Black (4,2 stars) 

It’s been a while since I read a fantasy book that I enjoyed this much. This has complex characters and they are what made me love this story.  The plot was captivating even when there were some parts that were a bit predictable.

Sutphin Boulevard by Santino Hassell (4 stars) 

This book has a m/m romance, that’s full of chemestry and intense feelings. I really liked both of the main characters, they go from best friends to lovers, which is my favorite thing. The plot was a bit darker and sadder than I was expecting, but I think the heavier subjects were handdled really well.

Sunset Park by Santino Hassell (3,7 stars) 

The main character is a bisexual man and I loved the representation. It was fantastic. The main characters go from friends to lovers after becoming roomates and it is sucha great premise for the book and I really enjoyed reading their story.

Corrupting Chris by Santino Hassell (3 stars) 

This was just a short story, it was steamy but nothing special.

Teaching My Mother How to Give Birth by Warsan Shire (3,8 stars) 

There’s a lot of good poems in this collection, but there are some that weren’t as good.My favorite one was Conversations About Home (at the Deportation Centre). This deals with themes like domestic violence, rape, family, refugges, inmigration, among others.

Not Your Villain by C.B. Lee (4 stars) 

I love Bells as a main character, I also love all the other characters in this series. I had a few issues with the beggining of the book becuase it tells the important parts of the first book from Bells POV so it felt a bit slow and  repetitive, but after that the plot completely picked up.

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder (3,8 stars) 

I had been meaning to read this for years and I finally did it! I actually really enjoyed it, I liked the main character and some of the secundary characters. The plot wasn’t the most unique, but it still was entertaining. My main problem was with the romance, it came out of nowhere and there was no chemestry betweem the characters.

Let’s Talk about Love by Claire Kann (4 stars) 

I fell in love with this book from the beginning, I love Alice’s voice and I love her as a character. I’m so glad there’s a book with an asexual main character. Also, I love the romance in this book.

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee (4 stars) 

I suffered through this book, I was so worried for the chracters the entire time, because I adore the three main characters, Monty, Percy and Felicity.  They are hilarious and sassy. Also, there’s so much diversity,  a bisexual narrator, a m/m romance, chronic illness, and PTSD.

Stuff I’ve Been Feeling Lately by Alicia Cook (3,5 stars) 

The format of this book was cool, but this didn’t really feel like a poetry collection to me, it was more like random thoughts that the author put together, but they were entertaining and meaning full enough to hold my interest.

January 2018 Wrap Up


Life Update 

My mom was in the hospital since December 15th, she finally had the procedure that she needed on January 22nd and they let her leave the hospital today, February 2nd. She’s finally doing ok and that’s the best news!

I was doing so much better in terms of my anxiety, but the last few weeks haven’t been so great. Now that I finished some of the things and my mom is doing better, I hope I can get my anxiety a little under control.

My boyfriend moved away, which was really sad, but long distance hasn’t been as awful as I thought. Although, it’s only been about two weeks since he left, so it will probably get harder with time.

– I officially went through the administrative process necessary to graduate. I’m graduating February 24th. You heard right, I’M GRADUATING FROM UNIVERSITY!! 

I’m one week away from finishing my internship. FINALLY! I’m so happy that I could cry tears of happiness.

I’m writing again!!! Ok, I have only written like 800 words, BUT I wrote something so that counts as good news.

What I read 


Turtles All the Way Down by John Green (4,2 stars)

I liked the representation of OCD and Anixiety in this book, it’s #ownvoices and it shows. There were a lot of other things that I loved about this, but I did have some problems with it. Read by review to know more.

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book about Horrible Things by Jenny Lawson (4 stars)

When this book focused on living with a mental illness, on how that looks like in the day to day and on the good and bad that comes with it, this book was brilliant. Nonetheless, I had problems with some chapters that were random stories, because they tried too hard to be funny and lost the depth that other chapters had. I feel like there was some cohesiveness missing in this book. BUT, there were times when this was so great that I couldn’t believe someone had the words necessary to explain certain feelings and experiences.

Wild Beauty by Anna-Marie McLemore (4 stars)

The plot in this book is fantastic and unexpected, there’s a mystery throughout the book that comes to a surprising resolution. The plot was definitely my favorite part as well as the main characters, a group of bisexual girls that are cousins and that have lived their lives as if there one, because of the many things that bind them together. The only problem I have with this book is that I didn’t feel connected to anything and it has to do with the writing, Anna-Marie’s writing is beautiful but unfortunately, I feel it keeps me at a distance.

Roomies by Christina Lauren (3,8 stars)

This story is so much fun; the characters are great and they have so much chemistry.  It’s a cute, fluffy and a fast read. Here’s my review.

Autoboyography by Christina Lauren (4,5 stars)

I loved this book, it gave me a lot of feels. It deals with the intersection between homophobia, religion and family. This story was heartbreaking at some points, infuriating at others, but it also had cute and happy moments. The romance is a lovely one and we get a bisexual main character and a gay main character.

Bittersweet by Sarina Bowen (4 stars)

This was a fun, entertaining and steamy read with great characters and it keep me captivated the entire time. Check out my review.

Act Like It by Lucy Parker (3 stars)

I had a hard time getting into this book, but it picks up and then it becomes a good romance full of banter, chemestry and lovely moments. Check out my review.

After We Fall by Melanie Harlow

This was steamy, entertaining and very, VERY ANGSTY. It was a fun read but I did have some problems with it. Check out my review.

simon and witch

Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I really liked this book,  it took me some time to get into it, but then it got so good. I really liked the characters and the romance was so cute, it was kind of easy to figure out who Blue was but that ddin’t take away from the story.

The Witch Doesn’t Burn in this One by Amanda Lovelace

There are a few poems in this collection that I really liked, but most of them were  just ok for me. Check out my review.

A Very Late Wrap up: August – December 2017


I didin’t write a wrap up in the last 5 months of 2017, so I have a lot of caching up to do. If you want to know why I  was gone, here’s an update. During those months I didn’t read that much, so let’s hope  this won’t be extremely long.



The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell (4 stars) 

I expected a little bit more from this books. I gave it four stars and I think I was a bit too generous. I have forgotten so much about it and that’s a bit sign for me about a book. For what I remember, I liked the main character and some of the side characters, but some part of the big reveal was a bit forced.



Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas (5 stars) 

I know this series is really problematic in a lot of ways and I totally understand why people dislike it and don’t want to read it.  I actually thought I wasn’t gonna like this book for an entirely different reason,  because so many of the main characters weren’t in it. BUT I really liked the new characters. I loved the stoyline and the writing in this book.

Beard in Mind by Penny Reid (3,4 stars) 

I  liked this book mainly because of the family dynamics that are present in all the books of the series. I love the Winston sibilings and the relationships they have with each other. BUT I wan’t as invested in the romantic relationship in this book as I was in the romantic relationships in other books in the series. Something good about this is book is that it has  reprensetation of someone with OCD, from my perspective it was well handled, but since I don’t live with OCD I can’t be sure if it was accurate or not and I looked for #Ownvoices reviews but didn’t find any.


knitting in the city 2

Neanderthal Marries Human by Penny Reid (3,4 stars) – Scenes from the City by Penny Reid (3 stars) –  Ninja at Fist Sight by Penny Reid (3 stars) – Happily Ever Ninja by Penny Reid (3,2 stars) – Dating-ish by Penny Reid (3,6 stars)

After I read Beard in Mind, I was done with all the books in that series that are out, but i still wanted to read more books by Penny Reid and I decided to finish reading the Knitting in the City series.  I started this series a while ago and read a few of the books out of order, so I felt it was time to read the ones I had left.

I actually enjoyed reading this series a lot, I loved all the female main characters and most of the men. The main couple in Dating-ish is definitely my favorite of the whole series. Penny Reid’s writing goes perfectly with the kind of books she writes and her books are  fun to read.

rugby series

The Hooker and the Hermit by L.H. Cosway & Penny Read (2,8 stars) 

I wanted to keep reading Penny Reid, so I started this series and I was so disappointed. One of my least favorite books of the year. The concept of the book was interesting, but I disliked the male protagonist so much. SO MUCH!

The Player and The Pixie by L.H. Cosway & Penny Read (3,5 stars) 

This is the second book in this series and it got better than the first, a lot better. The concept was interesting and the fact that it was the woman teaching the man about sex made for a fun and entertaining story. Also, I really liked the main characters and the relationship between them.

The Sun and her Flowers by Rupi Kaur (4 stars) 

I really liked this book, specially some of the poems at the beginning that dealt with heartbreak, because at the time I read it I could relate so much to them, it was exactly what I was feeling. I also found the poems about immigration and refugees to be really powerful and the parts about her family experience made the poems feel so authentic. There were some poems that were just not for me, because I felt they were more like sentences that poems. Also, I didn’t enjoy some of the poems about love. BUT overall I did really enjoyed this.

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (4 stars) 

This is quite story, with interesting and compelling characters that I loved to read about. It’s an exploration of motherhood that it was fascinating and complex. Celeste Ng’s writing is incredible, I will definitely read more of her books in the future.

Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire (3,8 stars) 

This book was good, but I didn’t like it as much as Every Heart a Doorway. This book has intriguing characters and it’s set in an interesting world, but I was bored in some parts and I think it’s because the plot wasn’t that fascinating to me.



Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco (4 stars) 

This was such an entertaining and atmospheric book, but the best part were the characters, I love Audrey Rose and Thomas so much! and the relationship between them developed in a great way through this book and I was so happy about it. Also, there were new queer characters intriduced in this book and it was awesome.

Lovers Like Us by  Krista & Beca Ritchie (3,8 stars) 

This is the second book in the Like Us series and  I have to say I enjoyed it even more than the first book. I loved the fact that we got to see so much of all the other chracters, not only Moffy and Farrow, but also all the cousins, sibilings and parents. Also, I feel like the plot was really interesting and the writing was perfect for the story.

addicted calloway sisters series mini

Hothouse Flower (4,5 stars) , Addicted After All (4 stars) , Fuel the Fire  (3,6 stars) & Long Way Down (3,9 stars) by Krista & Beca Ritchie

These were all re-reads, I have read these books a few times already, but I love them the same or even more every time I read them again. Amazing and beloved characters, meaningful relationships and entertaining plots make the series a favorite for me. Also, it deals with some series topics, especially related to mental health. This series actually made me feel more comfortable with the idea of going to therapy and it’s something that it will always mean a lot to me.


This was my very late wrap up! Have you read any of these book? Did you enjoy them?

July 2017 Wrap Up


If you read my june wrap up, you know I had a very hard month personally. July was definitely better but I was still sad about my break up, I was working on my thesis so I was really stressed out and I was waiting to start my intership. All this things mean my anxiety was out of control and I got sick  because of it.

Nonetheless there were some good things, I hanged out with my friends a lot and I had so much fun, and also I was out of my reading slump so I read 11 books!

Fantasy Books

I’m finally getting back into my favorite genre after months of not wanting to read it. Yay! Also, I managed to finish two fantasy series that I had started a long time ago during the month of July.

The Invasion of the Tearling by Erika Johansen (3,7 stars)

This book was very different from the first one, there’s an element that was added nd that I feel like it didn’t really work. It feel forced and like it came out of nowhere and it played such a huge role in the story that it was hard to get past it.  Still, I enjoyed this. Especially because of the main characters and the relationship between them.

The Fate of the Tearling by Erika Johansen (3,5 stars)

I saw the ending coming since the beggining of this book and that took a bit of the excitment for me. Also, I didn’t liked the ending, so that didn’t help either. This was still entertaining, but I was disppointed.

The Novice by Trudi Canavan (4 stars)

This book is slow and almost nothing happens in it, until the very end. BUT I still really enjoyed the experience of reading it. The main character grew a lot in this book, I feel like the book explored other characters and that was interesting and there was some intriguing discoveries, all this things kept the book from being boring.

The High Lord by Trudi Canavan (3,5 stars)

Contrary to the second book in the series, in this book so many things happened but I was so bored for 60% of this book. I wasn’t connecting with the storyline or the characters in the first part and only in the last 40% did I get the amazing, fast paced, fascinating book that I wanted this to be. The ending was good, except for one little detail that’s revelead in the last few pages.

A New Adult Series

Whenever I’m extremely anxious I choose a new adult book or an entire series (depending on how anxious I am) to read and in July my pick was the Dearest series.

I’m gonna be honest and say that I don’t remember that much about this series and it’s been less than a month since I read it. So I will start with: this was not particulary memorable series for me. My favorite one was the first book and I gave it 3,5 stars, the other 2 books got a 3,2 stars rating. The writing was ok, I liked the couples especially in the first book and the female characters were good. That’s as much as I remember.

The 2017 Releases 

Damaged like us by Krista and Becca Ritchie (3,9 stars)

I have so much love for the Addicted to You/ Calloway Sisters series that I feel like I had to read this. At the end, I really enjoyed getting to know this characters that I had see as kids in the other series and I loved the fact that I got to see the old characters that I love so much.

The Story of Lizzie and Darcy by Grace Watson (3,7 stars)

I really liked this! I shipped Lizzy and Darcy so much, they were wonderful together. I loved the fact that this revolved around the publishing world, I feel like it gave it something extra. Also, there’s lesbian representation, bisexual representation and trans representation and I feel like there were handled in a good way.

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia (4 stars)

I loved this book, except for one little detail. This could have been a 5 stars read, I loved Eliza, I loved Wallace, I loved the idea of the webcomic, I think the representation of anxiety is amazing. BUT I do think there’s a major plot point were one of the portagonists acts so out of character that it takes away from the story, I felt like the author did it just to increased the drama and the conflict of the book and I felt disappointed.


Invictus Invictus by Ryan Graudin (4,2 stars)

I got an ARC of this book through Netgalley and I had so much fun reading it. The concept of this book was really interesting, I loved the characters and the relationships between them and I thought the ending was really good. Full review to come!

June 2017 Wrap Up



June was a weird month for me, it was actually kind of a hard month. To begin with, I was in a reading slump and that always affects my mood so much. I did a bit of traveling in the first weeks of the month and even if I had a great time, I was having troubles with my boyfriend so I was sad and frustrated during the entire trip, and then I came home and break up with my boyfriend after 2 years together. And let’s remenber,  I WAS IN A READING SLUMP and it sucked, because I needed a distraction, a refuge and when that happens I usually turn to reading and I couldn’t.

Anyway, I did manage to read 5 books and here there are:

1. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood  (4 stars)

I read this because I wanted to watch the tv show and I ended up really enjoying the book. It was not what I was expecting, the writing style and the way the story was told confused me at first and threw me off because it was not what I was expecting or what I’m used to. Nonetheless, the story in itself was interesting to read, the themes this book dealt with were fascinating and I found the ending to be really cool.

2.Doing it: let’s talk about sex by Hannah Witton (3 stars)

I follow Hannah on Youtube, so I have been hearing about her book for a while and I wasn’t that excited about it, but I decided to give it a chance. At the end, I found that this is a book for begginers, someone who is just starting to learn about gender roles, relationships, sex, the LGBTQ+ community and other subjects like that. Most of what she says in this book, I already knew, so that was what made this book a bit boring for me. One thing that I want to highlight is the fact that if she isn’t part of a community or hasn’t experienced a situation or an issue herself, she invited someone who is part of that communty or someone who experienced that to talk about it.

3.When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon (4 stars)

I enjoyed this book so much, I had never read a book about a arranged marriage in a contemporary setting and I found it really interesting. I really liked the romance in this, the characters and the writing. I do have to admit that it took me a little bit of time to like Rishi, but I ended up enjoying his character.

4.Some Kind of Perfect by Becca and Krista Ritchie

This was the third time I have read this book, I was not in the mood to read anything, so I decided to read something I had already read and rated because that way my perception of a new book wouldn’t be affected by my mood. I love this series, so it was good to read about the characters again and this is an ‘epilogue book’ so it was nice to read the happily ever after. Also, re-reading this made me excited to read Damaged Like Us, which is a kind of continuation for this series.

A Storm of Swords 

5. A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin (4,5 stars)

This book took me so long to finish, because it’s huge! Nonetheless, I really enjoyed it, so many things happen, the characters all grow and change, and THAT ending! This is definitely my favorite book of the series so far.

May 2017 Wrap Up


During the month of May I was doing my last finals of my last semester of Uni (I mean, I still have to do a intership next semester before graduating, but no more classes! Yay!). Because of that, my anxiety was out of control and the only thing that seem to help was reading new adult, so that’s what I did for most of May. Here are the 11 books I read in May:

A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas (4 stars)

A Court of Wings and RuinThis was a very anticipated realese for me. Sadly, it wasn’t as good as I expected. Even if I did enjoy it a lot. I think everything went a bit too perfectly for the main characters, I feel like it was easy to tell that this was written in a rush and also there was so many elements of the story that weren’t tied up well enough ( I know there’s more books, but still…). I still enjoyed this book a lot mainly because of the characters and because of Nesta and Cassian (my babies, who need to be the main characters in the next books!)

Books 1 – 3 of the Winston Brothers Series by Penny Reid

Truth and Beard: 3 stars/ Grin and Beard it: 3,6 stars / Beard Science: 3,8 stars


I want to start by saying that Penny Reid’s books got me through finals and I will be forever grateful.

With that out of the way, I want to start by saying that I didn’t read this series in order. I had heard great things about the second book (Grin and Beard it ) and really bad things about the first one (Truth or Beard). Because of that, I started by the second book,  then read the third (Beard Science) and after enjoying both of them, I finally decided to give the first one a chance.

The second and third book have amazing romances, even if the couple of the third book is my favorite. Also, the dialogue in the second book is especially good, it feels natural and realistic. I liked the couple in the first book the least and I also liked the brother who was the protagonist in that book the least. But I still enjoyed it.

All three books have in common that there’s some really steamy scenes and there is a really interesting family dynamic between the brothers. Each is completely different from the others and that makes the relationships between them complex and captivating. The family element is definitely one of my favorites. I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series.

Book 1 -4 of the Knitting in the City Series by Penny Reid (3 stars for all 4 books)

knitting in the city

I didn’t read this series in order either! I started by the fourth book, Beauty and the Mustache, because is about the sister of the main characters in the Winston Brother series. It’s actually book #0.5 of the Winston Brothers series. After that I read book 2 (Friends without Benefits), Book 1 ( Neanderthal Seeks Human) and finally, book 3 (Love Hacked).

About this series, I can say that there are very diferent and unique female characters, and there are incredible female frienships. On the other hand, it’s not as steamy as I thought it was gonna be (not nearly as steamy as the Winston Brothers series) and in some cases the romances weren’t as snoony and incredible as I was hoping.

I’m not sure if I want to continue with this series. If you have read them, do you think I should continue?

Settling Up by Eryn Scott (3 stars)settling up

This was just ok. I liked the main characters and I liked the way their relationship developed. This was more on the cute side than the steamy side and maybe that’s why I was disappointed, because it was not what I was hoping for.

The Da Vinci Code ( 4 stars) & The Lost Symbol (3 stars) by Dan Brown 

Robert Langdon

I had big expectation for this books and even it didn’t completely met those expectations, I still found it fascinating. I feel like I learned a lot of cool things from reading it and I liked the interactions between Robert and Sophie, I think they made a good team.

I think the Lost Symbol is my least favorite of this series so far. There were a lot of parts that I found boring and it was not as interesting as the other, I think that’s because in this one Robert Langdon resists to believe the entire book and so all the knwoledge that he usually transmits wasn’t there. The thing I like the most about this book were the bits about noetic science, I found them fascinating.

April 2017 Wrap Up


This wrap up post is very late and I’m really sorry! It’s just that April and May were not good months for me in terms of my anxiety, my school life and blogging. But as a way to cope with all that I did manage to read A LOT (at least for my standars). Today, I want to talk about the books I read in April.


1. Queen of Geeks by Jen Wilde (4,5 stars) 

I loved this book, not only did it have so many geeky references to books, tv shows and movies; it also had great representation. The main characters in this book were Taylor, who is in the autism spectrum and has severe anxiety,  and Charlie, who is bisexual and chinese. All these diferent identities were very well represented. Also, Taylor and Jaime are the best thing ever,  I shipped them so hard throughout this book.

2. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty (3,8 stars) 

I read this book, because I watched the HBO series and loved it. I feel like the tv show made some really good changes and that made me like it more, but I still really enjoyed the book.

During April, I had a week off from school and I made a TBR for that week that I posted (5 Books 1 Week: My very Ambitious TBR) . I ended up reading 3 books:

3. Better at Weddings than You by Mina V. Esguerra (3,8 stars)

I really liked the main characters in this book. The main male character was defenitely a bit too perfect and that wasn’t really realistic, but I didn’t really mind that much. And the main female character was definitely not perfect, but her POV was really enjoyable and I found her realistic and complex. Also, this book takes place in the Philippines and that gave the whole wedding planner storyline a more interesting background.

4. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab  (4,6 stars)

This year  have been in a fantasy reading slump, but I was finally able to go back to reading this genre and it’s all thanks to this book. It had amazing characters and I shipped Kell and Lila so much. I know a lot of people think that the characters are not unique, especially Lila, but there’s still the kind of characters I really enjoy. Also, the world building and magic system were interesting and captivating.

5. When the Moon was Ours  by Anna-Marie McLemore (4,2 stars)

The writing in this book was amazing, the representation in this was outstanding and I was so intrigued by the plot of this book. I really, really liked this book. Also, the villains of this story were so fascinating that I would love to read an entire book about them.

After my week off, I still was in a reading mood and I ended up reading 7 more books. 


6. The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers (4,3 stars)

This was definitely a quiet book, there was action but it wasn’t the main focused of the book. It was definitely character driven and all the main characters are amazing and they have wonderful relationships with each other. Also,  this book addressed very important subjets like gender, race and sexuality.

7. Animal Farm by George Orwell (3,2 stars)

I think this book was clever but that’s it. Which means that I think the way the nazi propaganda was presented was really interesting and it’s one of the few things that I really appreciated about this book, but the writing was just ok and I was bored for the majority of the book. The only thing I absolutely loved about it was last few lines.


8. A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab (4 stars) 

After finishing the first book, I was obsessed with the main characters of this series and I wanted to know what was gonna happen with Lila and Kell, so off course, I picked up this book soon after finishing that one. I just love binge reading series!

This second book was definitely a filler book, one that I still enjoyed a lot, but it did got to a point where I started to feel like  it was dragging a bit. Nonetheless, the ending of this was amazing! It did make up a bit for the fact that nothing happened for a big part of the book.

9. A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab (4,6 stars) 

I was so glad I had this book after finishing the second one, because I honestly don’t know what I would have done otherwise. I really liked this book! All my ships sailed and that made me so happy. The ending of this series wasn’t a 100% what i wanted, but it was close.

10.Royally Screwed by Emma Chase (3,2 stars)

Before this book, I had not read a book about royalty outside of fantasy. After reading this, I found that it’s quite an interesting subjet to me, the idea of weight and the responsabiliy of royalty in a contemporary setting. I really liked the main female characte, but in terms of the male character, I can say that I had a few issues with him. I still enjoyed their relationship and the steamy scenes.

11. Royally Matched by Emma Chase (3,2 stars)

I liked the main couple in this one more, I felt like I could related to the female character. Also, I think  I liked this because I’m always interested in book that has a reality show component to it.

12. The Melody of You and Me by M. Hollis (2,8 stars)

This book got that rating because it had amazing representation, but honestly if it wasn’t for that I would have given it a 1 star. This book had a pansexual main character and a lesbian filipino love interest, which was amazing. The problem was the writing, everytime that there was suppost to be tension or attraction, it wasn’t there. Honestly, I don’t know how to explain it, but the writing was so week.
