The Dead Romantics by Ashley Poston Book Review

Reason for Reading This Book: The Dead Romantics by Ashley Poston was the spooky book for October 2023 for  The Readheads Podcast Book Club . I have a history of liking the October read as last year we read Hester by Laurie Lico Albanese and I really enjoyed that book and have since recommend it to many people. I have not read a lot of books with ghosts in them but one that does come to mind is Layla by Colleen Hoover. I was a fan of that book and went into The Dead Romantics with the mindset that I would also enjoy it.    Content of This Book: Florence Day grew up helping the dead in more ways than one. For generations her family has owned the local funeral parlor. Aside for helping families to lay their loved ones to rest, Florence and her father are also able to see and speak to ghosts. They help the ghosts to resolve their unfinished business before they pass over. After struggling to fit in in her small hometown Florence found herself with a once in a lifetime opportunity to be t

One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid Book Review

Reason for Reading This Book: I have read quite a few books by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Some have been big hits for me and others have not. My intent while visiting a local used book store was to get a few more of her books that I have not read. Unlucky for me I was only able to get a copy of The Seven Husband’s of Evenly Hugo , which I didn’t have a copy of yet but have read and liked. The next weekend I was a fall festival and one of the booths was a book seller. I picked up a Colleen Hoover book for my twin sister and  One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid  for myself. I read the summary of the book and it piqued my interest. I only read books I buy when I am on a long waitlist at the library. I am also selective of the books I buy both for ebooks and physical. While on a waitlist for two books I read  One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid   I should also mention I have not seen anything about this book anywhere so I had no idea if it was liked or not.

Hello Beautiful by Ann Napolitano Book Review

Reason for Reading This Book: I was on the wait-list for  Hello Beautiful by Ann Napolitano   for so long that when it finally came available for me to check it out I could not remember who recommended it or if I saw a review of it somewhere and liked the description and that is why I put it on my list. So I can't really give give an exact reason for why I chose to read this book. Interestingly enough, when I was listening to The Readhead’s episode for Fourth Wing by Rebecca Yargo, one of the host’s read Hello Beautiful and enjoyed it. I was already reading it at the time, so it was a coincidence that someone else had just read it.   Content of This Book: Hello Beautiful tells the dark and emotional story of William Waters who grew up in a home with uninvolved and unloving parents. Finding basketball as a child was William's way out of his hometown and home life. After getting a college scholarship to play basketball he began a new life for himself where he made friends and go
