Books I’ve Read and Loved, Part Seven

A fresh roundup of some of the books I’ve read recently that I’ve enjoyed.

November 9 by Colleen Hoover

I think Verity kind of ruined Colleen Hoover for me because I loved that book so much. It’s one of those books that I think about from time to time and wish I could read for the first time again. That said, I’ve enjoyed the other books I’ve read by her, they’re just not the same. This one was good!

My rating: ★★★★☆ (4/5 stars)

Book Lovers by Emily Henry

I liked this one! I saw someone describe it as “a Hallmark movie in a book” and that is the perfect description. It’s light and feel-good, which is a nice break from my usual suspenseful/dark choices.

My rating: ★★★★☆ (4/5 stars)

Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score

This one was enjoyable to read, if not a bit predictable. It felt like a good vacation read – something that isn’t too heavy, but will keep your attention. I didn’t find myself itching to read it every night, which is usually my threshold for 4 stars!

My rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.75/4 stars)

The Perfect Marriage by Jeneva Rose

I’m not quite halfway through this yet, but I am enjoying it! I’ve heard from many of you that it’s a bit unpredictable, which is something I love in books!
