Bookish Thoughts for St. Valentine’s Day

Spoilers for the Shatter Me series, the Lunar Chronicles, the Kiss Quotient series, Persuasion, and Alexandria Ripley's Scarlett. I've never really been one of those people who celebrate St. Valentine's Day. I hate crowded restaurants.

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang

The Moonlit Garden by Corina Bomann, translated by Alison Layland

Review: I listened to this one, narrated by  Justine Eyre. It was about 12 hours long, but it passed by quickly with this fun read. It's not particularly deep or magical and it doesn't call life as we know it into question. It's a nice read/listen, light and intriguing for anyone in the mood for... Continue Reading →
