  1. In my country the only transaction of Emily Henry is People we meet on vacation and there the characters didn't speak for quite some time because of miss communication 😅. I didn't like this book but I'll try book lovers because of you.

  2. There are a lot of romance books that do not romanticize toxic men, quite the opposite! I actually have been seeing a new trend of romanticizing the nice guys, which is awesome! I have very similar taste to you (example, I also hated “the hating game” cause I found it toxic), but I absolutely fell in love with the romance genre in the past 6 months because it’s the most fun and wholesome thing ever (if you find the right books!).

  3. Now that i hear you talk about romance i realize that for the end of the year i'm re reading a short easy romance read. Its called Flipped &, even though it is more of a "highschool read" bc the story ends in their teens, its really a nice read. There are some points were you have some things about certain missunderstandings but to me they make sense bc they mostly happen when they are young. With the story you see them grow & how their relationship changes. The back of my edition says:
    " Bryce: all i ever wanted is for juli baker to leave me alone.
    But there was no going back, i liked her.
    Julie: one look at bryce loski & i became a lunatic.
    But all those years i liked him? I never really knew him"

    I think you should try it, it isnt an adult read so some things are more surface level but its super intresting. If it catches your eye but not really enough just watch the movie, its a great adaptation

  4. I love how much overlap we have with books and hearing you gush about books I already love too 🙂 It means I have some great new adds for my TBR of the ones I haven't gotten to yet 🙂

  5. Translation of my fake dad's review: "I’m ashamed that you’re my daughter. It’s the worst book I’ve read in my life. If you ask me about it again I’ll disown you." Which is of course a joke lol He's 1/3 into it and enjoying it so far!

  6. Small thing but I’m totally adopting "unfamiliar" as my explanation when it comes to Bible stories. For some reason I always feel the need to explain that I didn’t grow up in a religious household & have no clue about any Bible stories. There’s so many references to it (supposedly) in books and I never know what to say about it.. "unfamiliar" is short, sweet, to the point & moves the conversation along lol

  7. This was a mediocre year for books I’ve read. There were only four good books I’ve read this year and they are:
    1. Hidden Pictures by Jason Rekulak
    2. Fox Creek by William Kent Krueger
    3. Rebels at Sea by Eric Jay Dolin
    4. Wrong Place Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister

  8. Ok, mais là! Je tombe sur ta chaine pour la première fois, je me dit que les recommandations sont intéressantes et PAF! tu es québecoise? Je m'abonne hahaha Can't wait to ear what your dad will say about Razorblade Tears and you made me move a few books on top of my TBR list

  9. I have been hooked on Mark Tufo lately. I know the apocalypse and zombie thing have been done to death but his writing and humor got me back onboard. I am glad I don't have to worry about the kid think, I wore my pants too tight in the 80's, blessing in disguise.

  10. The Reese's Book Club is 50/50. Some of her picks are good and others are not so good. Her good books are "Where the Crawdads Sing" by Delia Owens, "The Last Thing He Told Me" by Laura Dave and "Wrong Place Wrong Time" by Gillian McAllister. A bad book from Reese's Book Club was "The Guest List" by Lucy Foley.

  11. Hi ! I want to share with you about one book: "KAYAN KOLLYN- The spiral of the Ellmott & messenger of the secret." a great fiction of adventure, mystery, ART, an ancient CRAFFARTT, and science. once you read it, you definitely love it, because it speaks about all dimensions of life, without the barrier of the beliefs and social divisions.
    Love your content!
    Waiting for your review ❤❤❤

  12. You really make me want to read something by Octavia E. Butler! I've read Beach Read and I just didn't like it, for me it was just cliche and nothing special. I was waiting for something more, based on the hype around it. But I would still like to try another book by her but I'm a little scared I won't like that either lol.

  13. I read the hole series of My Brilliant Friend this year and it is fantastic, can't say wich book is my favourite, just that I love them all hahaha. And besides My Brilliant Friend, some of the best books I read this year were Pachinko, the Daevabad trilogy and The Sound And The Fury

  14. I love your list. Razorblade Tears is my top read of this year. My Brilliant Friend has been on-off my TBR this year. I’m surprised you recommended it based on the other reviews I’ve seen. I just read The Christmas Wish by Lindsey Kelk and thoroughly enjoyed it. Maybe I’ll give Emily Henry another go. I’m not drawn to romantic books in general. Finally I think I’m going to try some Octavia E. Butler next year. I’ve only read Kindred (5 star!). Merry Christmas Emily!
