NB: I received a free ARC of this book from Netgalley, but that hasn’t affected the content of my review. This was one of my most anticipated books of the year, and I ended up being pretty disappointed with it. It’s pretty rare that a book charms me the way this one did, only to fizzle out so hard later on. Usually if I’m going to dislike a book, I know almost right away. But really, the first third of this book was great! I […]
Elia Winters is a new to me author, but yet another of those delightful people I follow on Twitter. I heard good things about Hairpin Curves before seeing it on NetGalley. It was a fun road trip romance read. I received this as an arc from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Megan and Scarlett were friends as teens, but that ended when Scarlett ghosted Megan after they made plans to be college roommates. When another childhood friend invites them to her wedding in Canada, […]
Last year I loved Olivia Waite’s The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics. When the sequel, The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows became available on NetGalley I was so excited. I enjoyed it tremendously. I received this as an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review.

I loved it so much. Lucy has recently lost her father and watched her lover get married to a man. She has spent the last decade assisting her father’s astronomic pursuits and doing all of the mathematical calculations. Her brother, a painter, is starting to […]
This wasn’t nearly as good as Think of England, one of my top five books from 2019, but it was still top quality, as I’ve come to expect from my K.J. Charles books. Proper English is an indirect prequel to Think of England, as it takes place two years earlier than the previous book, and shows how Fen and Pat met (they are together at the time Think of England is grappling with its own disastrous house party). But you really don’t need to read […]
