This is not a book that I could easily put down. I only stopped reading twice, once to get the kids ready for school and once to cook dinner. I loved the light hearted plot, and even though it isn't something I normally read, I was glad to have picked it up.

I’m seeing a few reviews calling Six Ways to Write a Love Letter “fun” and “lighthearted,” and while that is what I would expect from the premise and the cover, that’s not really what I was feeling when I read it. Instead of a RomCom it was a romantic drama.

The story follows Remy Young who ran away with his brother, Val, from their strict religious family to start a band. They signed with a label but were eventually dropped and Val hasn’t been able to write songs since he got clean. Remy is used to being his brother’s anchor and when he’s offered the job to go on tour with famous pop star Vivi Swan he’s nervous to leave his brother behind. As much as this story is a romance, it is also a story about the brothers learning how to live without fear of feeling like they are abandoning the other. I was a little uncertain about how the strict religious homeschoolers storyline was going to go, but it wasn’t overdone.

I read this book in one day and part of what made it so addicting was the setting of the music tour. The particulars of the tour, and the way relationships are built and navigated while constantly on the move were so interesting. Pearce also explored the costs of fame and how much planning went into cultivating Vivi’s image while she also fought to have some aspects of her life personal. The romance begins when Vivi and Remy get stuck on a bus together after a mixup and they begin working on a song together. The romance is sweet, and I couldn’t help rooting for these two as they try to navigate the press and professionalism and their relationship.

I started this review by saying what I thought this book wasn’t, let me try and put into words what it is. Six Ways to Write a Love Letter is an addicting look at the music industry and the crazy grind of touring for months. It’s a heartfelt story about brothers as they are forced to find out who they are when they aren’t together. It’s an exploration of a pop star who must always keep up a façade and calculate every move she makes. It’s a sweet friendship and romance that grows through music and collaboration. The writing is beautiful and the story is cinematic. I highly recommend reading it while listening to a good pop soundtrack.

*Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I love a good fairy tale retelling - my reviews of the Lunar Chronicles will tell you that much but Sweetly by Jackson Pearce leaves much to be desired.

The characters are not compelling or likeable. They are trying to hard. Gretchen and her multi-colored hair are a poor attempt at some sort of emo/edgy persona that she doesn't actually possess. Her brother Ansel is completely boring. Sophia is not convincing in her role as the uber-charming but secretive sweetshop owner.

Everything happens very predictably. I guessed the end by the time I finished the first few chapters and I wasn't really connected to the story at all.… (mais)

Rojo feroz. Scarlett y Rosie March son dos hermanas cazadoras de Fenris, los hombres lobo que persiguen a su familia desde hace años. Ellos son los responsables de la muerte de su abuela y de que Scarlett perdiera un ojo en una dura lucha con uno de ellos por defender a su hermana pequeña. Dos hermanas, dos caracteres totalmente distintos pero atractivos y fuertes los dos, y Silas el joven y guapo vecino de toda la vida que siempre está ahí para protegerlas...aún cuando el peligro acecha tan de cerca. Una novela que sorprende por su originalidad. La reinvención del mito de Caperucita Roja ha llegado, y sus heroínas están lejos de permitir que nadie les rompa su capa...… (mais)
