Buy vs Borrow

Canary Girls

Not at all what I hoped it would be. A friendship story that some might enjoy, but it was lost on me.

Pass

Love, Holly

Meh. Of the Emily Stone I've read this is my least favorite. It was enjoyable, but a bit far-fetched with not much romance.

Borrow

Talking at Night

A stunning piece of literary fiction I will not soon forget.

Buy

Before We Were Innocent

Nope. Toxic friendships and co-dependency are not my cup of tea.

Pass

OMG I didn't know I needed this book until I read the first few chapters. Fun from the first lines.
