November Reads and Reviews
It's almost the end of the year, and I'm getting very close to my annual reading goal! This month I was really busy with some trips and bathroom projects, so I listened to more books than usual. I also started some holiday books that were so disappointing, so if you have some good ones please let me know!
Business or Pleasure by Rachel Lynn Solomon
The premise of this book absolutely sold me- a woman has the worst one-night-stand of her life, then gets an amazing opportunity to ghost write a memoir for a celebrity and guess who it is?! Of course hijinks ensue, and while they're working together on a book, the writer is also teaching the celebrity how to be better in bed. It's pretty cheesy and predictable but I still enjoyed it as a quick and easy read.
Kiss Her Once for Me by Alison Cochrun
I absolutely adore Christmas romances, so when I saw this on a list I picked it up without even reading what it was about. As it turns out, it's about another one-night-stand and also involves a fake marriage to the one-night-stand's brother. This was my first holiday book of the year, and unfortunately this one wasn't for me. I didn't like the main characters and the drama all felt very forced to me. I did like the drunk grandmas and the best friend, but otherwise this fell flat for me. One other good note- I liked the representation in the book and it didn't feel forced to me like it usually does! There were people of different sexual orientations and also a non-binary semi-main character. More of that please (but maybe with a better storyline?)
