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.

Love in the Time of Serial Killers: A soft romance for True Crime lovers!

Love in the Time of Serial killers by Alicia Thompson has the cutest cover and a curious plot! It immediately caught my attention, and I needed to add it to my Libby queue asap. So, I did.

If you know a few things about serial killers and true crime cases, you will probably enjoy this novel. Not just because our protagonist, Phobe, knows a lot about these cases but because she’s writing a dissertation on the True Crime genre. I found that really interesting! 

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!

Marichis x Romeo and Juliet? West Side Love Story is a perfect combo!

Two households, alive with Mariachi music,

In fair San Antonio, we lay our scene,

From ancient bitterness break new passion…

Hi lovers of libros, today I’m reviewing a book with the prettiest cover! West Side Love Story by Priscella Oliveras is inspired by Shakespeare’s famous Romeo and Juliet.

This Romeo and Juliet retelling is a super fun read. Undecided what R and J retelling to pick up? I will probably not help you narrow down your choices. However, West Side Love story has the main characters in rival Mariachi bands!

The Kiss Quotient is a fake dating classic and should be your next read

After finishing the Love Hypothesis, I decided to reread the Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang, and I realized I do not have a review for it on my blog. I don’t know why, when it is one of my favorite romance novels! 

If you loved Ali Hazelwood’s The Love Hypothesis, but you felt like it lacked steamy scenes, you’ll love the Kiss Quotient. It has a swoon-worthy and patient male lead and intelligent and kind-hearted heroine. Did I mention this is book one in a series?

Matthew and Diana just want to cuddle but their haters won’t let them: A review for A Discovery of Witches

By now, you must have noticed an influx of vampire novels I’ve been reading and reviewing, and that is because I had the genius idea to read as many as I can. My study is both fun but also informative. I want to trace some common themes in vampire literature.

It can get a little exhausting, so I  slipped in Deborah’s Harkness’s A Discovery of Witches onto my tbr for extra credit points. 

If you haven’t read or watched the hit series based on a Discovery of Witches, I will quickly summarize the first novel.
