Catch a Falling Star by Kim Culbertson

I liked the ending of Catch a Falling Star, because it didn’t have a neatly wrapped bow. We don’t know for sure what the characters will do or where they’ll go. Towards the end of the book, the characters began to realize and accept that no one can predict the future, and sometimes you just have to take a chance and hope it pans out in the end. Anything is possible, and you shouldn’t be afraid to take a chance, because you think you might fail. Full review here

Happy Messy Scary Love by Leah Konen

When I picked up this book I was quickly immersed in the story. I’m not a fan of horror movies, but I loved that Olivia was, because that made her unique and interesting. She often made movie reference jokes and was all around quirky and fun, and I could totally see myself being friends with someone like her. Full review here

Save the Date by Morgan Matson

There were so many things to love about Save the Date, the awesome 80s movie and music references, the hilarious wedding snafus, and especially, the entire Grant family, and their interactions with one another. No Grant faded into the background, because they all had their own memorable personalities and moments. Full review here

Love Songs & Other Lies by Jessica Pennington

I hated and loved, Cam. And I hated that I hated any part of Cam. That probably doesn’t make much sense, so I’ll try to explain. Cam was sweet, caring, and oh so vulnerable. He had a tragic past, and I wanted to hug him a lot. However, I also wanted to jostle him sometimes, because he just wouldn’t open up to Vee. Full review here

When Summer Ends by Jessica Pennington

The very moment I finished When Summer Ends, I whipped out my cellphone, opened the Goodreads app, and scanned Pennington’s author profile, hoping that she had another book in the works. Meet Me At Midnight is slated to be released in 2020 and has no description – which doesn’t matter – because I know I’ll be reading it regardless. After two back-to-back, fabulous books, Pennington is now officially an auto-read author of mine. Full review here

Rules of Summer (Rules of Summer #1) by Joanna Philbin

Unlikely friendships – Isabel and Rory come from completely different worlds. Isabel has a few siblings, no responsibilities, and is handed just about anything she wants. Rory is an only child, with a needy, selfish, immature mom, and has to work hard for everything. I liked how Isabel helped Rory gain more confidence and step out of her comfort zone. In return, Rory helped Isabel, well, become less of an entitled b*tch. Full review here

Love, Life and the List

Love, Life and the List, like every other Kasie West book I’ve read, is filled with heart, smiles, tears, and a dash of laughter. These are all the things I’ve come to expect and look forward to in any book written by Kasie West, the queen of contemporary romances. Full review here

Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch

Love & Gelato is one of those books, that when someone asks you for a book recommendation, you immediately think of. It gave me warm, sparkly feelings, and I just want to gush and gush about it. Full review here

Love & Luck by Jenna Evans Welch

I’ve never been to Ireland, but it’s on my top 5 list of must-travel places. Reading Love & Luck has made me want to go to Ireland even more. Addie, Ian, and Rowan are traveling across Ireland, stopping at historical landmarks, and every time they mentioned one, I immediately put the book down, and googled pictures. The landmarks in Ireland are breathtaking, and I really hope one day I can see them in person. Full review here
