My Little Cities series by Jennifer Adams + Greg Pizzoli

Being as big a fan of the BabyLit series as I am (for those who don’t know what BabyLit is, it’s a series of books produced by publisher Gibbs Smith that introduces classic literature to babies in the form of board books), you can imagine my joy when I discovered the My Little Cities board … Continue reading

Book Review: Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

Potential subtitles for this novel include: How to Make the Best of Bad Situations, or Movie Glam Girl Meets Sweet Surfer Boy. If that second titles sounds like an internet dating ad, it’s not far off. “Mink” (East Coast) meets “Alex” (West Coast) in an online movie forum. Is it a crush? Is it simply classic film chit-chat? Bailey Rydell meets Porter Roth when she moves from DC to CA. Is their frenemy status a way to pass the time at work or something more? Vintage clothes and a sweet Vespa, surfing legends and beach parties make this a delightful summer read. Continue reading

Book Review: Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith

Jennifer E. Smith is, somewhat surprisingly to me, one of my favorite young adult/teen (YA) authors. I say surprisingly because her books are all about romance, and teen romance isn’t usually my bag; full of drama and without the sex scenes – what’s the point? But there are a few distinct differences in a Jennifer … Continue reading
