Chick Lit, Romance| 304 pages | 10.15.2019 | St. Martin's Griffin 1 STAR I wanted to love this novel. I am a big fan of cheesy Christmas romances, Vermont, and snowy winters.

WILDER GIRLS YA, Contemporary Lit, Horor| 353 pages | 07.09.2019 | Delacorte Press 3.5 STARS Wilder Girls is deliciously strange and unusual.
