Reading Wrap-Up and Reviews

Happy Friday everyone!

I continued on my rom-com kick and I say that even though two of these books were NOT rom-com. And I must say…reading them sent me into a little bit of a reading slump.

First up…

Love and Other Words – 3.75/5 stars

It is this book that taught me that I do not really care for the miscommunication trope. I hate things that can be solved by two people just sitting down and having a real conversation. I get why this book is popular. Young love that lasts forever and all. As I read through the book and watched these two people fall in love, I kept wondering what in the world tore them apart for so long and so irrevocably and when it was finally revealed I um… I had a hard time buying that all those chips fell into place that way to keep them apart. I dunno. This book was SAD but engaging.

Heart Bones – 2/5 stars

Oh Colleen Hoover. I have had issues with her books in the past. I find them toxic and unhealthy with the tacit messages being very, very troublesome. This book was no exception. I gave her another try but I think we will be parting ways. When we got to the reveal at the end, I wanted our main character to run in the other direction from the love interest. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. I don’t want to spoil the book, but let’s just say had it been my daughter, best friend – there would have been an intervention of sorts.

Stuck with You- 4/5 stars

It was a short novella, quick. If you skip the love scenes even quicker. It was cute, well written story. I just realized- this was miscommunication and I didn’t hate it. So maybe it’s more in how it is done…

I think I may be moving on from this rom com phase. Or taking a break from it. I am not sure. I am going to take a day and then pick up my next book.

I hope everyone has a good weekend and Happy Reading!!!!!
