Another week down and almost done with winter, which thankfully never showed up this year. Yay!
I am still working on this book myself but it is such a fun story. I am looking forward to sharing it with you.
My daughter is trying to convince me that I need to do BookTok but I don’t think I have the patience or ability to do content and it would just look like all the rest of them so I don’t see that happening. I am going to keep going as the lone dinosaur on a book blog. But I will be doing Friday Giveaways as long as they keep giving me books.
As always just leave a comment to be entered. I will definitely be picking winners for the last few giveaways this weekend and letting you know.
Happy reading and we will talk books next weekend.
Giveaway is for a paperback copy and is open to U.S. residents only. Giveaway ends Thursday, February 23rd.
In this heart-fluttering romance by Kristina Forest, a shy bookworm enlists her charming neighbor to help her score a date, not knowing he’s the obscure author she’s been corresponding with.
Shy, bookish, and admittedly awkward, Lily Greene has always felt inadequate compared to the rest of her accomplished family, who strive for Black excellence. She dreams of becoming an editor of children’s books but has been frustratingly stuck in the nonfiction division for years without a promotion in sight. Lily finds escapism in her correspondences with her favorite fantasy author, and what begins as two lonely people connecting over e-mail turns into a tentative friendship and possibly something else Lily won’t let herself entertain–until he ghosts her.
Months later, still crushed but determined to take charge of her life, Lily seeks a date to her sister’s wedding. And the perfect person to help her is Nick Brown, her charming, attractive new neighbor, whom she feels drawn to for unexplainable reasons. Little does she know that Nick is an author–her favorite fantasy author.
Nick, who has his reasons for using a pen name and for pushing people away, soon realizes that the beautiful, quiet woman from down the hall is the same Lily he fell in love with over e-mail months ago. Unwilling to complicate things even more between them, he agrees to set her up with someone else, though this simple favor between two neighbors is anything but–not when he can’t get her off his mind.
I mean, how’s your dancing, Lucy? 😁 My favorite booktok-er just dances with book summaries in the background.
😩 What do they call that at weddings…white man’s overbite? It’s more a shuffle back and forth or if it’s a slow dance, the same move while holding onto the husband. Or I could just go all out and do a dance that will embarrass my kids forever.
Sounds fun. Looking forward to your review. Thanks for the chance.
This one sounds fun. Thanks so much!
