bookish stuff but not reviews

it isn’t lOvE it isn’t HAtE | ENEMIES TO LOVERS BOOK RECS!!

HELLO BLOGGERS AND THE WORLD BEYOND!

When I tell you I came up with this post title while listening to lover, you should believe me.

are you even normal if you don’t swift-fy post titles???

So while I try very hard to focus on this post instead of screaming the bridge of cruel summer like a psychopath, LET’S GET STARTED.

Enemies to Lovers ~ The Dazzling Haze Version

So, this is what I officially want this post to look like. How can I not use lover references for this post???

like how????

HERE WE GOOOOOOOOOOO

Contemporary books- swear to be over dramatic and true to my loverr

Spanish Love Deception by Elena Armas

This book is so adorable like ahhhhhhh. both of them are like christmas presents. so adorable cute. I mean?????????????????????????????????? Let’s forget about the *blushing in the corner of the hall* scenes BUT HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE A MAN WHO SLEEPS ON A TOO SMALL BED JUST TO PROVE HIS POINT AND THEN BREAKS IT????? Definitely recommended if you want cutenesss and ‘oh my lord I could cut this tension with a KNIFE’ vibes.

What’s not to love by Wibbroka

how
can
I
not
talk about this MASTERPIECE????

Ethan and Alison?????? Academic rivalry>>>>>>>. The cut throat competition. The general nastiness and lengths they can go to….I want to re read oh goshhhhhhhhh
I love watching that flip from I really hate this person’s guts to loving them in an incorrigible way. In a lot of enemies to lovers books it seems like one of the main characters doesn’t hate the other so much, they’ve just been pining for them etc. One of my favorite things about the book is that wasn’t the case here. Both of these characters truly couldn’t stand each other… until a kiss of passion and frustration changed everything.. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Fantasy books- a dazzling haze, a mysterious way about you dear

These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong

ok let’s be honest. we all knew this was coming up didn’t we?

Roma and Juliette have to be THE BEST couple I have ever come across. I don’t root much for couples, mainly because I normally want the guy all to myself (*laughs*) but THEM. I WANTED THEM TOGETHER. And in all honesty, if my heart broke with this duology, yours should too.

Read it for the world building, and the world destroying, the poetic passages, the general perfectness of our leading couple and all other cuties in the story.

Under One Roof by Ali Hazelwood

This is only a novella! Like 100 pages or something???? and it was ADORABLE AND CUTE AND IRRITATING AND IRKSOME. I lived through the characters and I am obsessed with ali hazlewood and her books. and come on people. 100 pages? YOU CAN DO THAT. FOR SURE.

That’s all for today!! I’m *probably* doing a part 2 for this.

fingers crossed this was fun for you guys!

BYEE FOR NOW!

  1. PLEASE DO A PART 2!!
    also Lover is such a good album💕 I’m 9 pages into The Spanish Love Deception, and so far I’m not very hooked in to the story:/ it seems quite similar to The Unhoneymooners, (which is one of my favourite books) because of the whole vacation with your enemy thing. also, have you read The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren? I’m currently reading that as well 😂 and it’s quite good so far:)

    1. aww thank you!! I will!
      lover is EPIC for sure. TSLD is good at the start but I feel the ending was dragged out a bit. I haven’t read both those books but vacay with enemy sounds like something I need to explore more.

      thank you so much for this comment sateja!

      1. oh, ok! I just found it strange how it dived right into the plot, instead of having more of a build-up (e.g: a tense phone call with her family telling them she has a boyfriend, a wedding invite, etc) yesss it’s so good! the soulmate equation isn’t vacation with enemy but it’s fake dating & forced proximity. of course!💕
