    Ooh, this one looks neat! I'm having a memory blank, is this the author that also wrote Drink, Slay, Love? Her name looks familiar… either way, great pick!

    The cover is fabulous! However, I'm not really sure about the plot. it sounds so… interesting and unique that I may just have to read it to see what it's all about.

    Thanks for the heads-up about this book :)

    This book synopsis is long enough to provide enough information, and just short enough to pique my curiosity into finding out more about it. The gorgeous cover doesn't hurt either. I'll definitely be looking out for this one. Lovely book choice – can't say I've seen this one before.
