I always seem to think when I start off theses posts that I didn’t finish very many books last month, but then I go to count them and I’m always so proud. When I started getting back into reading last year I never thought I could read this many books so quickly. Doing these roundups I hope helps y’all find fun stuff to read.

The Labrador Pact by Matt Haig

3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is such a sad book!! It’s good but I don’t even want to recommend it because it’s so sad! I loved the start of the book and thought oh my gosh imma love this, but it just got more sad as it went on.

The Clockmaker’s Wife by Daisy Wood

4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really really enjoyed this book. It’s a work of historical fiction, and the author states from the beginning that the plot is completely fiction just set in WW2. The book alternates from 1940 to 2021/2022 and I really enjoyed both Nell’s point of view and Ellie’s. All the characters are lovely, and you do really want to know how Nell’s story ends and you root for both woman. I’d totally recommend the book to anyone who enjoys this genre!

Thanks Netgalley and Avon UK for letting me read the ARC ebook.

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren

4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is such a cute and darling book! Hazel has a weird and unique personality that is just so loveable! I listened to the audio book which changed narrators depending on who’s point of view the chapter was from. If you like a friends to lovers book than this is perfect for you! It’s cute, romantic, and heartwarming all in one.

The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

HIGHLY recommend this book! This is my first Beth O’Leary book I’ve read and now I need to pick up another one of hers!

The Flatshare is adorable. I listened to the audio book and the narrators are just perfect. I almost wanted to see them interact in person or do a live reading because they both made the characters so real. Both Tiffy and Leon have quirky personalities, but you end up falling so hard for them. Every character written is so likable and I felt really invested in the book.

The Dating Dare (A Sweet Mess #2) by Jayci Lee

3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I had no idea this book was in a series, and I kind of loved that I wasn’t missing anything when reading (listening) to it. It’s a super cute and quick read. Would be the perfect beach read! The audiobook was great. The narrator did a good job. And you can’t beat a book that ends in Paris!

Thanks Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for letting me listen to the ARC.

Paris for One and Other Stories by Jojo Moyes

3/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book is a compilation of short stories, starting with Paris for One. It’s the longest story and was my favorite of the bunch. The rest were okay. My other favorite was Crocodile shoes. 

Roomies by Christina Lauren

4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A book that is similar to the movie The Proposal, but on such a better scale! Loved this read! I listened to the audio book and the narrator was amazing! Especially with the Irish accents. Could not recommended it more.
