Monday Musts: Unmaking Hunter Kennedy, April in Paris and Favorite Bookish Posts


Monday Musts is a weekly event, started and hosted by Jessica @ Lovin' Los Libros, which asks you to highlight your must read, must listen and must see!

MUST READ!
Unmaking Hunter Kennedy by Anne Eliot



From Goodreads:
After a car accident--an event he considers a prank gone bad--pop star, Hunter Kennedy is forced to hide out with his aunt in small-town Colorado. He’s supposed to rest, heal his scars and attend high school in disguise until the press dies down. But he only wants to get back to work.

Worse, the girl who’s been assigned to make him over into a geek is a major geek herself. Vere Roth is a chattering pixie, a blushing tornado and a complete social disaster. He’s never met a girl who’s never-been-kissed, believes in romance and thinks Hunter’s a 'nice' guy.

Funny thing is...Hunter is nice around Vere because she’s his first real friend. He also can’t seem to stop sharing his secrets or keep her out of his heart. Knowing he’d never deserve a girl as sweet as Vere, he resigns himself to the friend zone, and helps his new bestie with her own makeover. 

She tortures him daily for ridiculous guy advice on how to snag her life-long crush. A guy Hunter thinks is totally wrong for Vere, and sadly, one who has taken note of Vere’s transformation.

When Vere asks her best friend for some kissing advice, Hunter can’t resist...

And that’s when things get out of control...
Last week I reviewed The New Guy by Amy Spalding.  This reminded me of my favorite YA also involving the new guy/crush being a celebrity, Unmaking Hunter Kennedy.  Anne Eliot is one of my all time favorite YA authors -- love all of her books!

    1. I think my favorite by here is still Almost but How I Fall is really good -- I would compare it to Not If I See You First but so much sweeter.

      here's my review

  8. April In Paris is one of my favorite older songs and this is a wonderful rendition of it. It always reminds me of that Billy Chrystal movie Forget Paris! Have a great week.

  11. Okay, Unmaking Hunter Kennedy sounds EXACTLY like my kind of book!! Not sure why I've never heard of it before, but I'm pretty sure I need it in my life. :)

  12. Okay, so Unmaking Hunter Kennedy sounds like one of those books that I would scoff at but then secretly devour in a fit of high-school-daydream glee. Sometimes I'm a sucker for an outlandish but totally adorable romance. I may have to put this on my candy book list for when I need a pick-me-up.

Today I am spotlighting the trope of:  My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend , which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother. I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton

Today I am spotlighting the setting of:  Libraries and Bookstores , which I would loosely define as any book that largely takes place at a library or bookstore or involves characters that work at a library or bookstore. What could be more lovely to a book lover than a book with characters that also love books?!  I love this mix of genres with this setting -- cozy mystery, contemporary romance, UF, YA, romantic suspense, sci-fi. I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let me know! Have you ever read a book set
