Weird but Normal
“Weird but Normal by Mia Mercado is a hilarious and thought-provoking look at the weird aspects of every day life that we all experience. When authors narrate their own memoirs, it adds an additional dimension to the story to hear it literally in their own words and voice. Mercado reminds us that it's okay to be ourselves, even if we are a little bit weird.”Tina, Leaves Book and Tea Shop

The Rest of the Story

The Happy Ever After Playlist
“2020 has been quite the year and all I can seem to focus on are happy love stories. Out of all the ones I’ve read or listened to this year, this one hit me the hardest. The story is great, the characters are lovable, and I just couldn’t stop listening. Each chapter had its song and the book had its own playlist that IS on Spotify. A few chapters in and I started listening to the songs before each chapter. SUCH A COOL EXPERIENCE! I’m blown away by this book. I now require playlists to go with every book I read, and I will also proceed to not stop telling other people to read it.”Rose , Out West Books

The Boyfriend Project
“Smart, steamy, and fun! I listened to this one through Libro.FM and loved everything from the author's voice to the female friendships to the recognition that internet fame is an emotional burden. (I was also deeply amused by the fact that the male lead had lived/worked in Vienna, in the building locals affectionately refer to as "The Toilet Bowl.")”Leah, Scrawl Books
The Right Swipe
“With a diverse cast of emotionally mature yet complex characters, The Right Swipe delivers an interesting and fun modern love story. Rai’s finger is obviously on the pulse as she engages with current trends such as the #MeToo movement, and she does so masterfully while still creating a fun and enjoyable read. I wish all my beach-and-bath romance novels could be so well-written and inclusive.”Ellie Frank, 57th Street Books

The entire book is text conversations between Haley and Martin. It is funny, heartwarming and at times you want to yell or counsel both of them as you get so invested in them! I loved the ending and was quite honestly sad when I finished it!”Joy, Blue Willow Bookshop

Take a Hint, Dani Brown
The Brown Sisters
“One of the great pleasures of getting to work in a bookstore is having co-workers coax you to new genres and experiences. So many folk were raving about Talia Hibbert that I decided to give her a read. Delightful! Funny and moving. Damn charming. Serious in intent and yet light as a feather. And very, very sexy. If you are looking for a book filled with joy during this tough time, I can't think of a better choice. And the narrator, Ione Butler is just as delightful and talented as the prose that she is reading. Talia Hibbert and Ione Butler make for a fantastic, perfect pairing.”Tom, Rediscovered Books
Not the Girl You Marry
“This is a fun and engaging read. Don’t let the concept (a role reversal of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days) or cute cover fool you. There is a lot more depth to this plot than meets the eye; it’s about being seen and accepting your true self. Jack and Hannah both try to be what they think others want them to be but, because of their deceptions due to job obligations, are actually their natural selves. I can’t wait for book two.”Audrey Huang, Belmont Books
