Reading Round Up: February 21st-28th

Hello friends! How is everyone doing? Hopefully safe and healthy. So after my last round up being so good it looks like I hit a slump. I had the best of intentions to get a few arcs read but I struggled with them and ended up finding anything else I could do because I didn’t want to pick up the books. So for my last round up I only finished 2 books. Here’s hoping next month is better.

Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren – 3 Stars Hollyn is a blogger in New Orleans who goes by the name of Miz Poppy and reviews local events and restaurants. Her boss comes to her and says she needs to start going in front of the camera or she will loose her job. Hollyn who has Tourettes and is not a fan of this enlists the help of improve actor Jasper to help her prepare. Overall this book was just okay for me I had a hard time with the main romance and felt like it was kind of forced. However, I liked the authors writing style and will pick up her next book in the series. I also really enjoyed the Tourettes representation in this book both the main character and her best friend have it, I don’t think I have ever read a book with a main character who has it. Thank you Sourcebooks Casablanca for my gifted copy.

Finlay Donovan is Killing It by Elle Cosimano – 3 Stars Finlay Donovan is divorced, trying to keep custody of her two kids and is late on her deadline for her publisher. While meeting with her agent she is overheard by the woman next to her who mistakingly thinks that Finlay is a killer for hire instead of a romantic suspense author. What follows is a series of events that leads Finlay and her nanny Vera on a crazy adventure. Overall this was a quick read and was pretty entertaining but I had some trouble with parts of it. I am not a fan of when more than person instantly falls for the main character on just a first impression, this book has a couple of these and it just turns me off. While I had some problems with it I did like the writing style and will be picking up the next book if this becomes a series because the ending really left us wanting more. Thank you St, Martin’s Press, Minotaur and netgalley for my gifted copy.
