The More The Merrier – Elena Graf

This Christmas novella is not as sweet and cute as others I’ve read this year, and that’s what makes it so good. I’m very much a character-driven reader, and when characters stay with me months after I first met them, it’s always a good sign. When I read High October, I found myself liking Liz … Continue reading The More The Merrier – Elena Graf

London Undone – Nan Higgins

London Undone is not as light as the blurb would have you think. It’s actually really sad before it gets really heartwarming and full of love and hope. London wasn’t prepared for her girlfriend of six years to propose to her in the most public way. She wasn’t prepared for her to propose at all, … Continue reading London Undone – Nan Higgins

Invisible, as Music – Caren J. Werlinger

I’ll start with a confession (these reviews are getting more and more personal, aren’t they?): age gap romances make me uncomfortable. I’m not judging, or, rather, if I’m judging anyone, it’s myself.

Most of it was due to exhaustion, in part … Continue reading Learning To Swim – KJ

Miserere – Caren J. Werlinger


Why do I keep forgetting how much I love Caren J. Werlinger’s books? They have this subtle beauty, you start reading and after a while, without realizing it, you’re not reading anymore, you’re in there, in the story. This is the third or fourth book I read by Werlinger, and it’s just as beautifully written, … Continue reading Miserere – Caren J. Werlinger

When the Stars Sang – Caren J. Werlinger & Ann Etter (narrator)

When the Stars Sang

[Edit: September 20th 2019] I’ve always believed (and still believe) that Paris is the most beautiful city in the world. However, as time goes by, I find myself more and more drawn to quieter, less populated places. It’s no surprise, then, that I am a little envious of what Kathleen found on Little Sister. Not … Continue reading When the Stars Sang – Caren J. Werlinger & Ann Etter (narrator)
