What's better than an adult contemporary romance? An adult contemporary romance with witches, wolves, and everything supernatural!
What's a better combo than fairies and crime-fighting? When someone murders Gwen's first fairy godmother charge, her life takes a turn and she becomes a crime fighter. If the cops can't figure out who did it, she will. Little does she know that that first murder was only the beginning and she'd be hunting a serial killer years later.
This is a tough review to write. To say I loved Hester Fox's The Witch of Willow Hall and The Widow of Pale Harbor would be an understatement. They are gorgeous books. Hester Fox has put out two books since then and...I haven't loved either of them half as much. It feels like her writing has changed or something. I don't know. But let's discuss her most recent book: A Lullaby of Witches.
Ok, I want to start this off by talking about a different book. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. When I read that book, it blew my goddamn mind. It spoke to the deepest parts of me and it had a voice that was both unique and very specific. The Maid didn't make me feel the exact same, but it was very close.
Why do all Emma Lord's books make me sob at 2 AM?? Like Tweet Cute....crying and hungry. You Have A Match...absolute sobbing. And the same can be said for When You Get A Chance. It's dramatic, heartbreaking, inspiring, and cute AF. Let's talk about all the feels!
You ever read a romance novel and you're just like...DAAAMN, can I get some of that?? That is definitely the thought I had after reading Eight Perfect Hours. Like...where is my snow storm and traffic back up and perfect person in the car next to me???
I did not expect to fall in love with a couple of church kids. But it's Erin Hahn, so I figured, even if I ignored the church stuff, it would still be a good story. Well, she made me love the church stuff too and I am not even mad about.
There is nothing I love more than love between two people who so utterly and completely deserve it and that describes Dev and Charlie perfectly.
Sports books AKA books where sports happen usually aren't my thing, but if they're like Like Other Girls by Britta Lundin, then I will read ALL of them. I don't know what I was expecting from this book, but what I got was so goooood. Finding your people, dealing with internalized misogyny, and discovering love where you never expected it. FUCK YES.
As soon as I heard about this book, I was everywhere trying to get an ARC. As we all know, I'm constantly on the lookout for books with Jewish characters that have nothing to do with the Holocaust. And not only is this that but it's a YA romance between two girls and it has a HEA (happily ever after)!!
