Review: Sweet Valley High #1 Double Love

The tagline: Will Jessica steal Todd from Elizabeth? The answer: Yes of course! It’s par for the course with Jessica Wakefield, one half of Sweet Valley High’s beloved (or not!) twin sisters who are the envy of everyone who comes across their path. The golden-haired 16 year-old beauties Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield were the main protagonists of this long-running series. I think a little background is needed here. I was a […]

P.S. I Love You by Barbara Conklin

Not to be confused with the novel of the same name by Cecelia Ahern (which was turned into a movie starring Gerard Butler and Hilary Swank), P.S.

Dolores (Lola) Nolan is a budding fashion designer who lives in San Francisco with her two dads. She has an older boyfriend Max (who is a budding rock star) and a best friend who is determined to become […]

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I have had the biggest smile on my face since I finished reading Anna and the French Kiss. It was just what I was in the mood for since I have been going through a spell of heavier, more angst-ridden books lately. I really loved this and now cannot wait to read the follow-up Lola and the Boy Next Door. Anna and the French Kiss revolves around a girl called Anna (funnily enough!) […]
