One Sentence Recommendations: August

When I re-branded my website over a year ago, I decided that I was going to start reviewing all of the books that I read. All of them. I read on average five to six books a month so that seemed doable. And then something happened. It started to feel like I constantly had a book report to write. I didn’t like writing book reports in the fourth grade and I still don’t.

Hence the reason I came up with my One Sentence Recommendations. You don’t like reading long book reports and I don’t like writing them. I believe that’s called killing two birds with one stone. You’re welcome.

Side Note: The one exception I will make is for books that I receive as advanced copies. Because that’s kind of the reason that you receive an advanced copy in the first place; to write about it and get other people excited about reading it too. And I do have some of those in the works so be on the look out for them soon.

Perfect historical fiction set in Paris that includes a little romance and a lot of heartbreak, may I suggest you read All the Flowers in Paris by Sarah Jio.
