two hands holding onto fiction library book


This is such a sweet debut from Melissa Grace and I donut just mean the donut jokes. Home is Where You Are was a lovely, fun read that has relatable life issues, a swoon-worthy romance and very likeable characters who could be your best friends. The main characters have great chemistry and I knew from the first few chapters and the way Melissa writes that this book was going to be great.

Sign me up for the rest of the Midnight in Dallas series!

Thank you to Melissa Grace for an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review.


I love a bit of fire and when I heard that You Deserve Each Other by Sarah Hogle had parted reviews to either opposite ends of the spectrum, I moved it to the top of my TBR list.

At first, I thought I was going to hate this book. And then it made me cackle delightedly. Sure, some of the things these characters do are wildly immature but that’s what makes it fun and hilarious. Sometimes I went from loving it to hating Naomi and her juvenile ways and ridiculous thoughts, but it pulled me right back in with the chemistry and want to make her relationship with Nicholas work.

If you like enemies to lovers (I suppose it counts?) and the build up of anticipation, this book is for you.


When I saw Yes, No, Maybe So on my audiobook list last month, I thought it would be the perfect book to read in the American election month.

While I thought this book was good, it hit a little too close to reality. I read to escape the world and tuning into a fiction book that almost mirrored the news stamped on my enjoyment a bit. Nonetheless, this young adult book was enjoyable and definitely hit on real world issues that teens and young people (and all of us) today are facing.

Have you read any of these books? Let me know what you read in November in the comments below.
