Life in General

It’s been pretty quiet this week. The weather here is becoming so heavenly – sunny and 70s – my favorite temp. Perfect weather for doing lots of things outside including READING!

Currently Reading

I loved Crown of Coral and Pearl last year, and didn’t realize book 2 was coming out so soon. Needless to day, I jumped on it when it appeared in my selection of blog tour books for Harlequin Trade imprint Inkyard Press. I am starting it today and am really looking forward to finding out what will happen next.

I accepted this blog tour book on a whim because I just fell in love with the description. I never do any YA Romantic Comedy but this one just called to me and I am so glad I listened. I loved it❤️❤️❤️❤️ The main character, Emma, is so incredibly endearing with her almost autistic- type challenges. She is a teenager who makes a dating/matching app but she has no…as in none…understanding of the social aspects of life and especially teenage life.

”I don’t understand people,” I admit. “Not just you, I mean…any people.” I think about all the people who were so mean to her in middle school. Why would anyone act that way? “Numbers make sense to me. People not at all.” (Emma speaking, Chapter 15)

You know you want to go ”Awwww” – how could you not?

About This Book

  • Genre: YA Romantic Comedy
  • Title: The Code of Love and Heartbreak
  • Author: Jillian Cantor
  • Print Length: 304 pages
  • Publisher: Inkyard Press
  • Publication Date: October 6, 2020

In this contemporary romcom retelling of Jane Austen’s Emma by USA TODAY bestselling author Jillian Cantor, there’s nothing more complex—or unpredictable—than love.

When math genius Emma and her coding club co-president, George, are tasked with brainstorming a new project, The Code for Love is born.

George disapproves of Emma’s idea of creating a matchmaking app, accusing her of meddling in people’s lives. But all the happy new couples at school are proof that the app works. At least at first.

Emma’s code is flawless. So why is it that perfectly matched couples start breaking up, the wrong people keep falling for each other, and Emma’s own feelings defy any algorithm?

Yet, another blog tour book – this time with Rachel’s Random Resources – and a MYSTERY, finally! I love fantasy, but I prefer to read a mix of genres each week. Lately, my reading has been very fantasy heavy, but not this week. It is a good mix of genres. Doesn’t this one sound delightfully full of thrills and chills?

About This Book

Life is dangerous. No one survives it. Enora Andressen makes a series of mind-blowing discoveries when her friend disappears in this compelling thriller set in an idyllic Devon town.

Limelight is a completely gripping and fascinating thriller featuring strong characters forced to make impossible decisions, the impact of which will be felt far beyond their quiet town…

Talk to me about the book(s) you are reading this week (in the comments). I love hearing about them. ❤️

This GIF has absolutely nothing to do with books but it is my favorite scene from the whole series. I’m embarrassed to say it took me a while to figure out that Rory is quoting Titanic. 😏

    1. You have been sharing some great thrillers lately! Happy reading ❤️


  2. You’ve got a great variety this week, Tessa. The cover of Kingdom is gorgeous! I occasionally pick up a YA rom/com. It’s not my preferred genre, but one of my book clubs gives me some good recs.

    1. This one was definitely a fun read. I watch ya romcom movies but the books generally don’t appeal to me.
      And the cover of Kingdom is beautiful! I just finished the rough draft of Codes review, so I will be starting it in just a little while ☺️

  3. I’m intrigued by Limelight, and although a genre I normally read, The Code for Love and Heartbreak sounds like it would be fun. I’ll getting ready to start something new–an indie book or two, and then it will be back to Harry Dresden again!

    1. Oh, no…you’re taking a break from Harry Dresden but you’re so close to finishing the series! It’s probably good to take a break and always fun to read and promote indie books ❤️ Happy reading!

      1. I keep taking breaks. I read a Harry book, then 2-3 indies, then back to Harry again. There are so many releases, it’s the only way I can keep up, LOL!

    1. I have found so many gems with Rachel’s tours and she is a great organizer. I hope you find gems too! Happy reading ❤️


  4. I’m between books right now and need to choose my next read. My Kindle is bursting! It’ll likely be a suspense/mystery/thriller, though. Unless I bump up one of my friends’ new releases. Everyone’s been so busy!

    Your list looks pretty good this week, Tessa.

    1. I’ve noticed all the new releases too. That’s a great thing ❤️ A thriller would be a wonderful choice and we won’t talk about bursting kindles 🤭

  5. I hope you enjoy the weather and get lots of reading done outside! It’s a bit cooler here (50s-60s) but that’s my ideal, so I hope to be outside with a comfy sweater and a cup of tea. Hopefully we both get lots of reading in this week while it’s nice out!

    1. We are on the northern track of Sally, sooooo… I’m thinking the rest of the week I’ll be reading inside. But after that – back out I go. Happy reading!

  6. Limelight sounds so amazing! Definitely going to check it out to give myself a break from the cozy mysteries I have been reviewing recently. Also, I am a firm believer that most things in life can be explained and made better by a Gilmore Girls quote, so cheers to that gif. Happy reading! 🙂
