WHAT I READ IN NOVEMBER 2023
Snowed In – 5 stars
I loved this one so much!! The story follows two people who went to highschool together, run into each other before they holidays and decide to pretend to be in a relationship to make going home to their families easier. I love a fake dating trope! This was so cute, so feel good, I loved both families and the ending just made me so happy. Festive and fun!
Drowning – 5 stars
I was so hesitant to read this but oh my gosh, I absolutely loved it. I don’t like to read anything that would scare the heck out of me, but I could not put this down. The story is about a plane that crashes into the ocean shortly after taking off. It then sinks to the bottom and a rescue team is on a mission to save them. This is so fast paced, non-stop, so wonderful, emotional, everything!! Definitely a great read.
Holiday Romance – 4.5 stars
After I read Snowed In, I had to read this one! It’s the first book in the series before Snowed In, but you don’t have to read them in order. The story follows two friends who fly home together for the holidays, but a snowstorm has cancelled their flight. They are determined to get home though. I love a good friends to lovers romance! The characters in this one play minor characters in Snowed In. I love that.
Check & Mate – 4.5 stars
This was in my book of the month box and I loved it so, so much. This is technically YA, but I don’t love YA and I really enjoyed this. So don’t let that hold you back. The story follows two chess players who engage in a charity tournament and end up very drawn to each other. I loved these characters so much!
Wreck the Halls – 3.5 stars
This was cute! The story follows the children of two former rockstars – women who were in a popular duo and best friends only to split when a huge incident happened years ago. The kids are the same age and they sign on for a reality show to reunite their moms to sing on christmas eve. It’s a quick read but there is a good plot and I didn’t want to put it down. It’s definitely a steamy read so just be prepared going into that.
