  1. Oh, I LOVED Audrey Wait! I hope you enjoy it!

  2. That's a fun one! I think you'll like it.

  3. Audrey, Wait! is a cute book, but a far-fetched ending...

    I definitely think you should give THE Agency: A Spy in the House a try. I LOVED that book!

  4. Oops LOL. I didn't even check if you read The Body Finder or not. Sorry. I'll remember that and suggest another one next time :)

    Fantastic! I really hope you enjoy this one. I love Audrey.


  6. Oooh Charlotte recommended Once A Princess. I think that's what I recommended in the last round. Hope you enjoy Audrey Wait!

  7. Angie, I'm going to continue to try to push Life as We Knew It on you until you pick it.

  8. Audrey, Wait is SO good. I had to keep texting my friend while I read it because I am convinced Audrey is really my friend Allie. Yep.

  9. I hope you like this one - it was so much fun to read. And I did notice that you can get it for like $3 at B&N right now in their bargain bin...

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
