The Ex Hex
If you enjoyed Practical Magic, then you’ll love The Ex Hex.
“This book elicits the perfect cozy, witchy vibe that you crave in October (or all year round). It's the mashup of Sabrina the Teenage Witch (Melissa Joan Hart edition) and Hocus Pocus that I didn't know I needed. It's silly but narrator Caitlin Davies had me smiling on my work commute and immediately magicked up a kitschy Halloween movie marathon after I finished the book. Now I just need Erin Sterling to release a sequel every October until I die!”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys
Red, White & Royal Blue
“ To everyone who started telling me to read this book a year ago, I’m sorry. You were right - I loved it, unequivocally. The romance was sweet and gentle and real. But the humor put it over the top for me. I needed to laugh like that, desperately. And I did, a lot. A whole lot. But I also cried - because this book is pure, wholesome, and hopeful, even when it dipped into the darker places (with so much grace). Red, White, & Royal Blue gave my heart wings, and I'm still soaring. So to everyone who's still hesitant, don't be me - get on this train ASAP.”Britt, Second Star to the Right
You Had Me at Hola
If you enjoyed The Proposal, then you’ll love You Had Me at Hola.
“Damn, this was cute. Definitely a mood-lifter, definitely a light read. Any fan of Jane the Virgin or One Day at a Time (or even an "I enjoyed an episode once" person) would devour this. Filled with representation, strong leading ladies, family drama, secrets, and pure sass, You Had Me at Hola has you entertained from the first page. Honestly, though this book includes some steamy romance, it wasn't the most exciting thing for me. I was really impressed with Daria's world building. She layered scenes of Carmen in Charge (the show Jasmine and Ashton are filming) in throughout and captures the families of both characters very well. Yes, there is sex but there is also a really sweet relationship blooming that involves multiple layers and I was honestly more in a "cute" mindset throughout that a "sexy" one. There was a lot of talk about being a Latinx actress in today's entertainment world and the difficulty with tokenism, racism, and stereotypes. Daria also touched on the multitudes within the Latinx community and how many different countries, languages, culture, and skin colors that covers. Of course, being a romance, there are always bad decisions and stupid people involved. Jasmine and Ashton, though super cute, are no exception. Just as much eyerolling happened on my face as grinning but in a romance, I guess I wouldn't have it any other way!”Kimi, Buttonwood Books and Toys
Bringing Down the Duke
A League of Extraordinary Women: Book #1
“I love a historical romance with a smart and independent woman and a seemingly cold but kind-hearted love interest. Annabelle earns a spot in the first cohort of women at Oxford, and the only way she can afford this education is through a scholarship provided by the women's suffrage movement. Throw in a Duke with major Mr. Darcy vibes and you get romance novel gold. Think Pride and Prejudice but make it romance!”Amy, Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers
