“So much of love is chance. There’s something scary and wonderful about that.”

I was not sure if I was going to enjoy this series. But I must say that I am truly invested in Lara Jean and the gang. All my feelings as I had during the first book still stand true. The family dynamic, the relatability…it is all what makes the book so great.

I will say that Lara Jean got on my last nerve in this book, I was over how many times her and Peter broke up. I am going to say it now, if they break up for real in the last book be prepared to see an entire melt down. I know I have one more book left, but I don’t want their stories to end. Thank you for the ones who suggested this series, it has truly been a delightful experience!

Pride

Review: Pride

Author: Ibi Zoboi

Rating: 5/5 Stars

I cannot put into words just how much I adored this book. I actually clutched it to my chest and had this really goofy smile on my face.

Ibi Zoboi did such a beautiful job with this Pride and Prejudice retelling. The story was so much more than girl meets boy. The story covers the topic of gentrification, classism, love and so much more.

We follow Zuri Benitez who is of Afro-Latino decent. She holds her love of her family and her community close to her heart. In a time where Zuri would love for things to stay the same, everything around her is changing. The Darcy family moves in across the street and Zuri wants to hate them and the lavish life they represent from across the street. Will she find love and peace with letting go and making room for the change she fought so hard avoid?

“It’s time to move, flow, grow. That is the nature of rivers. That is the nature of love.”

Until next time, Until the next book.

Children of Blood and Bone

I just finished this amazing book and I’ve been crying for the past hour. I don’t even know where to start. This book…this book has been something I have been waiting on since I heard @tadeyemibooks was working on bringing to the world. As soon as it was available to order, it was the first thing I did. To hold in my hands the hard work of an author so passionate about her craft, literally made me cry. The way this story unfolded was beautiful, the way this story ended was beautiful. I laughed, I cried, I yelled at Sarans evil ass, and I held this book to my chest every night. Tomi created something amazing, something breathtaking and I am honored and blessed to have been able to experience this work of art. Thank you Tomi! I cannot wait for book 2 and the movie to come out.

I am not going to spoil this for you all, because it is something you have to experience. But if you loved Black Panther, you will adore this book. And there’s magic, what is there NOT to love. If you decide to read it, please tell me your thoughts!

Until next time, until the next book
