Until the Last Star Fades by Jacquelyn Middleton *Review*

Thank you so much Jacquelyn for sending me a copy of your book in exchange for an honest review!  I was so excited to find out Jacquelyn had a new book coming out after loving her duet “London Belongs to Me” and “London, Can You Wait?”.  “Until the Last Star Fades” had all the great qualities of Jacquelyn’s contemporary romance writing and I really enjoyed it.  I ended up giving it 4 stars out of 5!

Us Against You by Fredrik Backman *Review+Book Tour*

I cannot thank Atria Books enough for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and for having me on this book tour!  I won’t lie when I say I was scared to start this book.  It is one of my most anticipated reads of 2018 and I LOVED Beartown.  So like any true sequel I worried it wouldn’t be as good as the first.  I also was scared of all the emotions Backman was about to put me through.  But I did it, I just dove in and I fell in love all over again, with his writing, these characters, and this story.  From chapter one I was already tearing up, Backman’s writing is by far some of the best writing I’ve ever read and Us Against You is no different, it is Backman at his best.  I give this 5 whole stars.

“We are the bears! We are the Bears! We are the Bears! The bears from Beartown!”

Beartown by Fredrik Backman *Review*

This book, wow, I finished over a week ago and yet I couldn’t get myself to write a review right away.  It still brings tears to my eyes and tugs on my heartstrings.  I almost don’t know how to review this because any review I write will be insufficient.  This story is powerful, emotional, and important.  Characters written only the way Backman can write them, a story line that draws you in slowly and impacts you for long after, and an author that is nothing short of inspiring.  Another favorite book has been added to my shelf, 5 whole beautiful stars.

“You might be playing with bears. But that doesn’t mean you have to forget that you are a lion.”
