Hot cocoa + s’more books in February

February, I barely knew ya. Another birthday gone (it was a nice one!), so many great movies (Hidden Figures and Moonlight!), lots of hot chocolate, and a few warm days where I shed the big jacket and the hat and was reminded just how much I love spring. I’M READY! (But also kind of not because […]

Trisha Traughber - Hello! I’ve been browsing for a while–so many ideas for my stack of books “to read!” If I may ask a question about The Hating Game. . . I help adult English learners with their reading and English through novels (in France and online) and am looking for a story that takes place in the workplace and that has good casual conversation, small talk in a business environment. Would you say this book fits the bill? Is there an even better one you can think of? I know you may not be used to looking at books through this lense, but would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for all your great reviews!

Emma @ Miss Print - Goodness, do I have to read The Hating Game now? I am currently staring at my library copy of If I Fix You and your review here reminds me that I have to read it ASAP (maybe sooner rather than later since I am feeling so scattered in terms of what I actually want to read!). And I need to seriously think about 100 Days of Cake. I tend to be squeamish about “sad” books so we’ll see.

Ginger @ GReads! - I added If I Fix You to my wishlist, thanks to your rec Estelle. It sounds like something I’d enjoy. Hoping my secret sister gifts it to me. If not, it will be a must buy once this round ends. And ahh The Hating Game. Oh how I adore that novel. So glad the two of you read it and enjoyed it as well. I discovered it late last summer and have since then read it two more times. I already know I’ll be reading it for a fourth time sometime this year. It’s just so good.

Savannah @ Playing in the Pages - I haven’t heard of The Hating Game, but I’m glad I have now! Also, 100 Days of Cake looks intriguing based strictly on cover alone… I think I’m just a sucker for excellent font choices. 🙂

Lori - I have a copy of If I Fix You. I’m happy to hear that you liked it! The Hating Game is everywhere lately. I need to read it!

Maggie - I had not heard of If I Fix You, but it sounds interesting!

Also, I still can’t stop thinking of your Mahershala Ali casting for Josh suggestion. If only the world were that kind.

Leah - oh hi, month-old review that’s been sitting in an open tab since I first saw it D:
I loved this one so much and completely agree with everything you have to say about it, right down to immediately wanting to dive into it again. I’m seriously in awe of how Shari was able to BELIEVABLY (!) weaves these characters’ lives together. The scene at the airport was what really made me gasp and realize just how far ahead she had to have planned everything.
Such a lovely book ♥

Bridget @ Dog-Eared & Dog-Tagged - I’m excited to read this one, and the cover is just SO PRETTY. Glad you liked it!

Alexa S. - Your review of In Some Other World, Maybe is lovely, E! I’ve had my eye on this one for a while, but I definitely want it even more after seeing what you thought of it. It’s definitely interesting to ponder all of the “what ifs” in life, and I like that it’s a part of the novel in a big way.
