Set On You is an incredible story, one that I think many people will find comfort in. Her body positive movement really drove home for me, and I think will provide a lot of insight and encouragement to other readers who relate to Crystal.
The Stand-In follows the story of a young woman who’s provided the opportunity to help pay for her mom to have a better home by being a stand-in for a famous actress who she looks identical to, after losing her job. However, the novel’s so much more than a “switcharoo” or “celebrity romance” trope.
Ahhh … The Hating Game … how I have pondered over you and how to write this review. The issue is, parts of me thought this was steamy and hilarious, while other parts wanted to hurl the book across the room. Thus, the title of this book is rather fitting.
An adult rom-com novel, Henry’s story explores the lifelong friendship of Poppy and Alex, and what caused their connection to drift apart. It’s also a book about the struggles of adulthood, finding that work/life balance and discovering your passions.
Well, this book took me completely by surprise. I kept thinking the book was going in a more romantic direction, but it’s really about a 30 something year old woman figuring out her wants and her goals in life.
As many other reviewers will tell you, do NOT read this book on an empty stomach (no … I definitely didn’t order pho while reading this novel …). The description of the food is too detailed and scrumptious sounding!
And here we are, the final book of Hibbert’s hilarious romcom Brown Sisters trilogy. I loved seeing all the sisters closing chapters in their lives and opening new ones, but it’s definitely sad to say goodbye to Hibbert’s amazing cast of characters.
