I can’t believe it’s already July. I feel like this summer is going by so fast, but I’m not complaining. I have three kiddos at home this summer and while I love them I am counting down until school starts back. 😂 I have read so many great books so far this summer but these two books have been my favorite summer reads so far. The Unhoneymooners by Christina lauren was an easy, fast paced, hilarious book that I had a hard time putting down. I caught myself laughing out loud through out this book. The setting takes place in Hawaii with an amazing character named Olive and a chiseled man named Nate. They have a funny back and forth witty relationship. You see there friendship/relationship unfold and it takes you on a fun ride. My next favorite book I’ve read this summer is The Last House Guest by Megan Miranda. This is more of a thriller/suspense summer read and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. It focuses around a friendship between Avery and Sadie who are inseparable until Sadie is found dead. While the police rule it as a suicide, Avery must uncover what really happened to her best friend. If you have time this summer to read then I highly recommend both of these books.
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren- Book Review
This book is perfect for the summer. I took it on vacation and had a hard time putting it down- I ended up reading it in two days. I caught myself laughing out loud through out the entire book. I absolutely loved the main character Olive for three reasons. First, the name Olive itself is such a pretty name. Secondly, she is confident in who she is which makes her super easy to like. Third, she’s funny as hell. If that doesn’t get you hooked, then the fact that the story takes place in Hawaii and has a good chiseled man named Ethan should be enough to get you intrigued. If you are looking for a fun, easy-going summer book then this one is for you. I definitely give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! Thank you to Gallery Books for give me an ARC to read and review.
Olive Torres is used to being the unlucky twin: from inexplicable mishaps to a recent layoff, her life seems to be almost comically jinxed. By contrast, her sister Ami is an eternal champion . . . she even managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a slew of contests. Unfortunately for Olive, the only thing worse than constant bad luck is having to spend the wedding day with the best man (and her nemesis), Ethan Thomas. Olive braces herself for wedding hell, determined to put on a brave face, but when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. Suddenly there’s a free honeymoon up for grabs, and Olive will be damned if Ethan gets to enjoy paradise solo. Agreeing to a temporary truce, the pair head for Maui. After all, ten days of bliss is worth having to assume the role of loving newlyweds, right? But the weird thing is . . . Olive doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, the more she pretends to be the luckiest woman alive, the more it feels like she might be.
