Happy Tuesday bookworms! Today I'm reviewing Talk Bookish to Me by Kate Bromley! I'd like to thank Harper Collins Canada for sending me an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review! This book comes out today! Now let's dive in!
Kara Sullivan, bestselling author and bookstagrammer is going through a writing block. As the deadline for her next novel is approaching, Kara is helping her best friend prepare for her wedding. Everything is going to plan until her college ex, Ryan unexpectedly arrives and sparks her creativity. Between helping with the wedding, writing, and bickering with Ryan, can Kara write her own happy ending?
I really enjoyed Talk Bookish to Me! It's out of my traditional reading comfort zone but it's definitely opened my eyes to different genres! I loved how Kara was also a bookstagrammer! There was so many fun instances that I related to, like rushing to take photos and leaving props at family's homes! The plot and romance were very well done and made for an addictive read. At some points I thought Kara made some frustrating decisions which hindered my enjoyment a little but overall I loved reading through her journey! also, Duke the bulldog was so cute and I absolutely loved him! Talk Bookish to Me was a fantastic reading experience!
I gave this book a 4.5/5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨.
That's all for my review of Talk Bookish to Me! I hope you enjoyed it! If you were to become a famous writer what genre would your book be? Let me know in the comments below!
It's another review bookworms! Today I'm reviewing Off Trail by Rick Polito. I'd like to thank Wise Wolf Books for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review! This book comes out June 3rd!
Daniel has always been in the shadow of his older sister Jackie who's brash and crazy decisions have caused her to move out. Unfortunately, Daniel's parents find Jackie's stash of drugs in Daniel's closet and are convinced that he needs help. They send him to Quest Trail, a teen. wilderness therapy program. There Daniel forms alliances and creates enemies, all while going through gruelling self-discovery exercises.
Off Trail was a quick and fast paced read. Daniel definitely provided an interesting take on the Quest Trail program. I enjoyed his sarcasm and wit. The other camp members all had their own stories which I wish we learned about a little more. I especially would have liked to learn about Vera's backstory. I thought that the kids making fun of their ridiculous situation made the book go by quickly. I also had fun listening to how their leader was able to spin all of their negative takes into positivity without fail. At times the plot was a bit unrealistic which made reading a little confusing. But it also kept the book interesting and took it in a completely different direction than I originally thought it would.
In the end this was a quick read but I wished I could learn more about the characters' backstories. I gave this book a 3/5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️.
That's a wrap on my review of Off Trail! I hope you enjoyed it! If you were stuck on a desert island which three books would you want with you? Let me know in the comments below!
