Review: Kissing Ted Callahan (and Other Guys) by Amy Spalding

Kissing Ted Callahan (and Other Guys) by Amy Spalding

Blurb from Goodreads:
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist meets Easy A in this hilariously realistic story of sneaking out, making out, and playing in a band.

After catching their bandmates in a compromising position, sixteen-year-old Los Angelenos Riley and Reid become painfully aware of the romance missing from their own lives. And so a pact is formed: they'll both try to make something happen with their respective crushes and document the experiences in a shared notebook.

While Reid struggles with the moral dilemma of adopting a dog to win over someone's heart, Riley tries to make progress with Ted Callahan, who she's been obsessed with forever-His floppy hair! His undeniable intelligence! But suddenly cute guys are popping up everywhere. How did she never notice them before?! With their love lives going from 0 to 60 in the blink of an eye, Riley and Reid realize the results of their pact may be more than they bargain…

Top Ten Characters You'd Like To Check In With

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fab ladies at The Broke and the Bookish!


1.  Hands down, my number one choice would be Lizzy, of course!  This is why I read so many re-tellings that pick up from P&P -- Only Mr. Darcy Will Doand Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife are two of my favorites!
2. I would have to check in on my favorite character from my favorite childhood series, Sleepover Friends!  I always liked Lauren the most because she was athletic and loved to eat!
3.  Even though it would be a bit insane, I have to check in on all the characters from The Secret History, my favorite book of all time.


4.  I would love to read about the amazing woman I know that Brenna Blixen became -- this series is so good and so underrated!!
5.  More Kenny and Savannah, please!  They are still my favorite Troubleshooters couple!

6.  Oh Jemima!  Even though the ending of this book was perfect, I could go for a HEA novella.


7.  I don't know anyone that hasn't read and loved the Georgina Kincaid series by Ric…

Review: The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

Blurb from Goodreads:
"I might be Cinderella today, but I dread who they'll think I am tomorrow. I guess it depends on what I do next." 

American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister, Lacey, has always been the romantic who fantasized about glamour and royalty, fame and fortune. Yet it's Bex who seeks adventure at Oxford and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, Great Britain's future king. And when Bex can't resist falling for Nick, the person behind the prince, it propels her into a world she did not expect to inhabit, under a spotlight she is not prepared to face.

Dating Nick immerses Bex in ritzy society, dazzling ski trips, and dinners at Kensington Palace with him and his charming, troublesome brother, Freddie. But the relationship also comes with unimaginable baggage: hysterical tabloids, Nick's sparkling and far more suitable ex-girlfriends, and a royal fami…
