A book about teens working in a bookstore. I'm in. Say no more.
This was such a fun read and had quite a bit of depth to it too.
Shoshanna was such a likable character. Yes, she was flawed but she knew it and always did everything out of the goodness of her heart. She hurt when others hurt and rejoiced when they rejoiced.
So there were a few loose ends that I would have liked to be wrapped up. Near the end, it mentioned that Shoshanna writes and that she basically wrote all night. Umm...I don't recall it being mentioned that she was passionate about writing. And another example is from when she sent a link to a book review she wrote. Where? As a reader, I had no idea that she is also into reviewing as well. These may be slight little things but they did bother me a bit.
All that said, I'm glad that I gave this book a chance because it certainly lived up to my expectations.

Rating: 4/5
Language: a few forms of a**, d***
Romance: mostly crushing and one non-detailed kiss
Spiritual: Shoshanna and Jake are Jewish, some making fun of gentiles and Christians
Violence: N/A
Note: the main character has two moms, one of the MCs female friends has a girlfriend

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All thoughts are my own and a positive review was not required.

I really did enjoy this anthology because I thought the "concept" stories set between sunset and sunrise was super fun. I also really enjoy how the stories had all types of diversity. I also loved how we got so many different typed of genres. It was enjoying read. I def loved a majority of these stories. I also found them to be quick reads. I would def add some of these authors to my tbr! I really loved the brandy colbert story. I found it to be a great anthology!! Would def rec it!

I thought this was a super cute read. I thought it had some great represrntion for jewish characters. I also really like the book store as set. I also really like the competition element that was as really liked the various elements of diversity in this read. My two issues where this book was a super short and sometimes hard to get emotionaly invested in the characters. I also did not feel super invested in the romance of the characters. I really did like the relationship, but it did not scream romance to me! But i would def read read more books by the author in the future.… (mais)
