Who Do You Love by Jennifer Weiner

Add on Goodreads

“I wanted love, the big love, the kind people wrote songs and made movies about. I wanted to be the center of some guy’s universe, the only thing he could think about. I wanted to matter that way.”

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn Cover

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

Add on Goodreads

“Dear God,” she prayed, “let me be something every minute of every hour of my life. Let me be gay; let me be sad. Let me be cold; let me be warm. Let me be hungry…have too much to eat. Let me be ragged or well dressed. Let me be sincere – be deceitful. Let me be truthful; let me be a liar. Let me be honorable and let me sin. Only let me be something every blessed minute. And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost.”


Maybe in Another Life cover

Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Add on Goodreads

“Life is long and full of an infinite number of decisions. I have to think that the small ones don’t matter, that I’ll end up where I need to end up no matter what I do.”

 

 


Favorite Series

Knitting in the City Series Penny Reid

Knitting in the City Series by Penny Reid
Each book focuses on a different knitting gal and her journey to find love. Every book is unique in it’s own right, but overall they are funny, smart, witty, and fun.
Read My Reviews: Love Hacked (#3); Beauty and the Mustache (#4);
Dating-ish (#6); Marriage of Inconvenience (#7)

Winston Brothers Series by Penny Reid
This series is a spin-off of book number 4 in the Knitting in the City series (Beauty and the Mustache). The series focuses on the Winston Brothers, with each book being about a brother and his lady love. These Winston boys have my heart, and I love them all so much.

KITC

Heather Wells series by Meg Cabot
Mystery with a dash of romance, these books are some of the funniest that I’ve read. Heather is a former teen pop star, who has traded in her microphone for a job as an assistant dorm director at a university in New York City. She turns into a sort of amateur detective when something goes awry at her new job. Each subsequent book in the series focuses on a new mystery for her to solve, and the supporting characters, especially her friend and neighbor Cooper, are wonderful. Definitely pick up if you want a mix of humor, mystery, and romance!
