Let’s Talk Bookish: Happily Ever Afters!

Hello and happy Friday!!

My days are finally starting to fill up with uni work after 5 weeks of basically doing nothing which is great … but also not great because I’m on a true crime kick and my friend has pulled me into a All For the Game re-read binge.

What I’m saying is that I’m now either rushing through my work to get it done or procrastinating until the very last second so that I can instead watch Netflix or read my books. So if today’s Let’s Talk Bookish discussion feels a little more rushed then usual just know it’s because I have Neil Josten and Andrew Minyard waiting for me.

Let’s Talk Bookish is a bookish meme that was created by Rukky @ Eternity Books and hosted by Aria @Book Nook Bits, where each Friday, bloggers write posts discussing the topic of the week! Since the beginning of April, I’ve been the host of LTB, and I post each month’s topics here on my blog! September Topics.

This week’s topic was actually a free choice meaning I could pick any past prompt and I decided to go with the July topic of …

Should all Romances have Happily Ever Afters (HEAs)? (Dedra @ A Book Wanderer)

Prompts: Do you like romances with happy endings? Do you think that all romances should have happy endings? Why or why not? What are some of your favorite romances with Happily Ever Afters?

🌧grumpy/sunshine🌞 I still love you!

Hey and hello 👋

Last year I shouted my love for the Grumpy/Sunshine romance trope from the rooftops, specifically in a dedicated post where I read three books with this aspect. I had a lot of fun reading and reviewing those books and have wanted to do it again ever since.

And now the time has finally come and today I’ll be reviewing Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert and The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren.

I was meant to also include It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey but I got 60 pages in and couldn’t do it anymore. I wasn’t loving the characters or the plot and had to DNF it, at least for now. I might go back to it, I might now. If it get’s better and is actually worth reading, please let me know down in the comments 🙂

Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert

I’m gonna start off by saying that I don’t think I’ve ever laughed out loud (lol-ed as the kids say) so much while reading a book in my life. From page one this book had me in literal stitches which is exactly what I needed to get me out of my mini book-slump.

Mandatory Romance Recommendations 😻

Hi, hello 👋

While my housemates are out hanging with their boyfriends I’m in my room eating left-over pizza (Pizza Hut is ridiculously expensive by the way. just wanted to complain about that). Clearly I’m winning.

I plan on multi-tasking though because while I’m eating pizza alone, I’m also going to be recommending some books with A+ romance.

Is it Valentines day if you don’t recommend romance? The answer is no, it’s not. I did some romance recs last year, although that was more me just rambling but you can check that out too if you’re really bored :))


Fools in Love by Rebecca Podos & Ashley Herring Blake

In my opinion this is the quintessential book to read this Valentines Day. It’s literally multiple love stories for the price of one!

I’m terrible at remembering the plots of one story let alone multiple but this really is what it says on the tin: fools falling in love. The one story that really has stuck with me since I read it is one where a girl get’s into a car, thinking it’s her Uber, and the other girl is too awkward to say “erm excuse me, what are you doing?” and just drives her where she needs to go and thats essentially their meet cute.

I personally enjoyed ever story in this. Obviously I liked some more then others, but as a whole it was one of the best anthologies I’ve ever read and you should definitely check it out!
