I didn't know how much I needed a story about a girl football player and a girl cheerleader, but I totally did. Homefield Advantage delivered on everything it offered and more. Dahlia Adler does it again!!

Primal Animals by Julia Lynn Rubin: WHAT THE FUCK
You know when you wait too long to write a review and then you remember almost nothing?? Wellll, here we are. I remember the main points (mainly because parts of this book are horrifying!!), but the details...a little sketchy. But let's talk about Primal Animals!
Not The Witch You Wed: Witches, Wolf Shifters, and Demons, Oh My!
What's better than an adult contemporary romance? An adult contemporary romance with witches, wolves, and everything supernatural!
Fairy Godmurder by Sarah J. Sover: Let’s Solve Some Murders
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.
A Lullaby of Witches by Hester Fox: The Power of the Past
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.
The Maid by Nita Prose: Voice, Trauma, and Finding Your People
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.
When You Get the Chance: Theater, Parents, and Fighting For Your Dreams
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!
Eight Perfect Hours: Can I Manifest This Love Story Into My Life? Please!
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???
Never Saw You Coming: This Book Will Punch You in the Heart
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.
The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun: Reality Dating, Mental Illness, and Adorable Assholes in Love
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.
