Books I love, books about love, and good feels for February! ❤️❤️❤️
Reading can be more comforting than a hot, sweet mug of coffee. A few select books may even be chocolate-level. I’ll submit these three for your consideration!
Let’s Talk About Love
I learned so much about love from this genius novel. Claire Kann nails it, from the introduction (Alice getting dumped) through the growing pains, to a beautiful realization (spoiler alert, it’s about love)!
This is not a spoiler: Alice is asexual. She’s not sexually attracted to anyone. It’s fine. What’s not fine? Pretty much everything else. She can’t academically please her parents. Or keep up with her engaged BFFs. Alice should just hide from the world. Enter Takumi. Her new coworker at the library is cute, caring, and impossible to hide from…perfect. 🖤🖤🖤
Tell Me Three Things
This YA Contemporary gem has ‘You’ve Got Mail’ vibes. What could be better? Just when Jessie seems stranded in crunchy California amidst designer-toting pre-celebs, two things happen. 1) She gets a job at a bookshop. 2) An anonymous student emails her with advice on how to survive their ritzy, cliquey school.
Jessie is already a survivor. She lost a version of her father when Mom died. When Dad suddenly remarries, moving her across the country, she must survive without her childhood BFF, Scarlett. Will texting with Scar (and a random stranger) be enough to keep Jessie Holmes from falling off the face of the earth? 💔💔💔
Stop My Bleeding Heart
Dramatic title, dramatic tale! I’ll set the scene: Teenage Jade Diamond may as well be Snow White. She’s got the insidious stepmother. She’s an orphan taking refuge with seven sassy foster brothers. Who doesn’t adore a Found Family? ❤️❤️❤️
While living on her aunt’s farm, Jade tries to grieve her father while numbly navigating a new high school. She doesn’t count on meeting cute, artsy and athletic boys who could stop her heart. An intriguing romantic plot ensues!
Happily Ever Maybe?
So, we have 1) A break-up, 2) Loss of a parent, 3) Loss of a parent under mysterious circumstances – take your pick!
All three of these authors immerse me in humor, deep emotion, and suspense. That’s why I have re-read them again and again. Sweet, yet rich. Soothing to the soul.
Happy love month! ❤️
(I wish you chocolates and happiness!)
