Get a Taste of Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors by Sonali Dev

It is a truth universally acknowledged that an inspired Pride and Prejudice retelling will win me over every time. Not since Bridget Jones’s Diary has an Austen adaptation stolen my heart as much as Sonali Dev’s new novel, Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors.

Still Me by Jojo Moyes – And Why Louisa Clark is Still (and Always) With Me

You are scored on my heart, Clark. When Will Traynor wrote those famous words to Louisa Clark at the end of Me Before You, I pretty much cried, “Mine too, Will! MINE TOO!” Well, let’s be honest.

Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb: A Gorgeous Read Any Time of Year
