Now & When by Sara Bennett Wealer

*Spoiler free*

There’s something about Truman Alexander that Skyler Finch finds incredibly annoying. Actually, several things: his voice (grating), his arrogance (total know-it-all), his debate-team obsession (eyeroll), and his preppy vibe (does he iron his shorts?). She does her best to avoid him and focus on the important stuff: friends, school, and her boyfriend, Eli. His promposal was perfect–just like he is–and the future is looking bright. Or is it? For some unexplainable reason, Skylar’s phone is sending her notifications from the future . . . a future in which, to her horror, she appears to be with Truman. As in, romantically. As in, Skyler cannot let that happen. But trying to change the future means messing up the present, and what Skyler sees keeps shifting. Classmates disappear and reappear, swap partners and futures. Turns out there are no actions without reactions, and life doesn’t come with a road map. But sometimes the wandering leads you exactly where you need to be, and people–like glitchy phones–are full of surprises.

When I saw the cover reveal for this book, I was instantly drawn in. The characters looked dorky and adorable and the synopsis only upped my excitement. Enemies-to-lovers with a dash of seeing the future. It sounded like something different, but something I’d like to try! Trigger warnings: mentions of cutting, mentions of a suicide attempt, depression

The Vanishing Deep by Astrid Scholte

*Spoiler free*

I enjoyed Four Dead Queens and I’ve been looking forward to seeing what her other books could hold. And I knew it was going to be an ocean book and despite my dislike of the beach, I always feel drawn to ocean books. Plus, it’s a sister book. A sister book where one is trying to revive the other. And breakouts out of facilities while the employees chase them and it’s filled with secrets. Trigger warnings: death, vomiting, grief

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

*Spoiler free*

Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in…well, everything. Her identical twin sister Ami, on the other hand, is probably the luckiest person in the world. Her meet-cute with her fiancé is something out of a romantic comedy (gag) and she’s managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a series of Internet contests (double gag). Worst of all, she’s forcing Olive to spend the day with her sworn enemy, Ethan, who just happens to be the best man. Olive braces herself to get through 24 hours of wedding hell before she can return to her comfortable, unlucky life. But when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning from eating bad shellfish, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. And now there’s an all-expenses-paid honeymoon in Hawaii up for grabs. Putting their mutual hatred aside for the sake of a free vacation, Olive and Ethan head for paradise, determined to avoid each other at all costs. But when Olive runs into her future boss, the little white lie she tells him is suddenly at risk to become a whole lot bigger. She and Ethan now have to pretend to be loving newlyweds, and her luck seems worse than ever. But the weird thing is that she doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, she feels kind of… lucky.

I was able to find another romance book I wanted to try! So many people recommended this one and so many people seemed to love it. It has the next level of the fake dating trope, fake marriage. The same awesomeness, just amplified a little. Plus, here’s some hate-to-love thrown in there! It sounded like a really sweet book and I wanted to give it a shot.

The Ins And Outs Of Smaller Book Events

When I say smaller book events, I mean the events where there’s a conversation/talk, followed by a signing! I’ve recently went to two smaller book events and I’ve been to couple over the years. There’s lots of how to guides on how to handle big events such as BookCon, BookExpo, and YallFest/West, but no so many about smaller events! I know it seems like you just, go haha, and that’s the basics. But, I always get really nervous beforehand and I’ve heard other people get nervous, so I thought it’d be cool to write a post about what to expect and these types of events!
