It Starts with Us by Colleen Hoover

It Starts with Us (It Ends with Us, #2)It Starts with Us by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was excited for this and to get more of Atlas. I was really happy that this was not just a re-telling of the first book but through Atlas POV. It actually follows both Lily and Atlas a few months where It Ends With Us left off.

I thought it was a little slow moving at times. It has many aww moments, but nothing that really tore my soul apart like I have come to expect from Colleen Hoover books. I still enjoyed this though.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was sent this book from the publisher/publicity team. My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review.

I have recently gotten into journaling and I am always looking for new material that works for me. I really enjoyed this book. I do journal digitally, but I was able to use this to enhance my journaling.

I loved the daily prompts. I have not finished this yet, but I like that I can turn to it when I need it. Journaling is been great for my self care and I look forward to flipping through the rest of the pages during my personal journey.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was sent this book from the publisher/publicity team. My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review.

I have not heard about this author prior to seeing this book. After reading this, I immediately went to search for any other books she may have. That is how much I enjoyed this one.

It is no secret that I have pretty much only been able to listen to audiobooks lately. I have had such a hard time connecting with an actual physical copy of a book…until now. I did not want to put this one down!! I started it one night and stayed up way into the middle of the night and only put it down when my eyelids could not stay open any longer.

This is a great mixture of different tropes and emotions. I love the romantic suspense as well as the heavier topics. The writing and story kept my interest.

Overall, I loved this and cannot wait to see what this author brings us in the future.

Under Her Care by Lucinda Berry

Under Her CareUnder Her Care by Lucinda Berry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars

I am on a Lucinda Berry kick as her books have just been really keeping my interest lately. This was no different as I was instantly taken into the story. This was a really quick read as I could not put it down.
This ends with an almost open ended ending with so many more questions. I almost wish there were more so we could process everything that happened. It was still a great story though and I enjoyed it.

The Hookup Plan by Farrah Rochon

The Hookup Plan (The Boyfriend Project, #3)The Hookup Plan by Farrah Rochon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is book three in The Boyfriend Project. You do not have to read the previous books, but if you find yourself interested in any of the stories of her friends, I recommend starting there. I really enjoyed the whole series so far.

I really love how London and Drew reunite with this one. I like the enemies to lovers trope and how they banter in the beginning. It was a really fun introduction to the two.

This does have triggers for food shaming though. I know many of the food discussions when around London and her pre-hypertension, but there were also other aspects thrown into the story. Another character mentions having to do extra time on a treadmill from eating a cupcake. If you are triggered by things like this, it may not be for you as food is mentioned very often especially around carbs.

Overall, I enjoyed this one and seeing all of the girls back together. I like that we get updates on the previous couples as well.

When She Returned by Lucinda Berry

When She ReturnedWhen She Returned by Lucinda Berry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I went into this blind, but I had heard it was really good. It took a different turn than I expected in the very beginning as I did not know this was involving a cult. However; this one kept my interest from the start and I read it in one sitting.

It was very predictable on what was going to happen in the end, but I still liked reading about the cult and the things Kate went through. The flashbacks are not normally my thing, but it worked well with this one. It really kept the story moving and interesting.

I really want to read more from this author after this one!
