I loved Kiss me, Catalina more than West Side Love Story
Hey booklovers, I interrupt our Lunar Chronicles review for some contemporary romance reviews just in time for Valentine’s Day. But not to worry, I will return to my review of Cress and Winter in March.
Priscella Olvieras has done it again! The queen of latine rom com has released the sequel to West Side love story, a mariachi Romeo and Juliet retelling. Kiss me, Catalina, the sequel, is just as explosive, but this time Oliveras has taken inspiration from Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew.”
But don’t write this one off if you hated that particular Shakespeare play, Kiss Me, Catalina is a loser interpretation.Continue reading “I loved Kiss me, Catalina more than West Side Love Story”

Although this novel has a boy-next-door type of romance and a cute stray black cat, I really loved that it explores sibling relationships, friendships, and grief too!Continue reading “Love in the Time of Serial Killers: A soft romance for True Crime lovers!”
