May reads

I added five more books to the list in May! Two romance and three Young Adult, because I can diversify my reading. 😜 I’m up to 39/52 books for the year! Here’s what I read in May:

Take A Hint, Dani Brown

Ok but I LOVE the Brown sisters. Dani Brown is the most eclectic of the three – a practicing witch that prays for a *ahem* buddy. In walks Zafir. He is an ex-rugby player and now security guard in Dani’s building and they’ve been friends for a while now. After teaming up for a fake relationship as a PR stunt, things start to turn serious which sends Dani running. These books are so sugary sweet – I LOVE IT.

Field Notes on Love

Hugo, the youngest of England’s most famous sextuplets, has planned a week long train trip with his girlfriend, Margaret Campbell. The only problem is Margaret dumps him a few weeks before they are supposed to leave. Hugo needs to find another Margaret Campbell to go with him because all of the tickets are booked in her name. Enter Mae (short for Margaret) Campbell. She was recently rejected from film school and wants to go on an adventure. Hugo and Mae travel from New York to San Francisco on a train together and a week with a stranger turns into something they never imagined.

Act Your Age, Eve Brown

Ah the last of the Brown sisters. I didn’t want this series to end, but alas all good things and such. Eve needs to grow up and get a real job, at least that is what her parents say. So one day after a particularly bad fight, Eve gets in the car and drives to clear her mind. When she parks, she sees a help needed sign and decides to go into the B&B to interview. Jacob, the owner of the B&B will have none of Eve’s silliness but desperately needs a chef so she’s hired. And chaos ensues. It’s is SO fun!!

Pride: A Pride and Prejudice Remix

Zuri Benitez lives with her four sisters and parents in a one bedroom apartment in Brooklyn. Her neighborhood is gentrifying seemingly overnight, including the Darcy family who moves into the biggest house across the street. This book dragged a bit for me but I did like the perspective of Zuri and her frustration in watching everything she loves change in front of her eyes.

Genre: Young Adult

Ronit & Jamil

Ronit & Jamil is a retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet set in the modern day Israeli-Palestinian conflict. A classic story of star crossed lovers told in verse that is extremely timely given the unrest currently happening in the Middle East. I didn’t love this book but I didn’t hate it either.
