Review: Billionaire Ever After (Blue Collar Billionaires #3) by: Jessica Lemmon
Billionaire Ever After (Blue Collar Billionaires #3) - Jessica Lemmon

 

 

 

 

Billionaire Ever After by Jessica Lemmon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Jessica Lemmon continues her winning streak of irresistible heartbreakers. Archer is more than a little rough around the edges but charming enough to fool even his harshest critics. Talia is a work in progress. She has the heart of a fighter and the spirit to back it up, but she always seems to have the worst possible luck. Billionaire Ever After is a modern day look at an age old story. Love is a fairytale that never loses its shine. Lemmon seduces the senses with a captivating take on an age old classic with her own special flair through the eyes of love.

Southern Playboy by Jessica Peterson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Southern Playboy is a redemption song that lures the heart into it's melody. Peterson spins a tale of hard choices and missed chances that tell the story of life. Rhett and Amelia are learning the language of love, even as they break each others hearts. From young love to adult heartache, Amelia and Rhett are a soul cleanser that makes you stop and think. I was swept away.

Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come
Sorry I'm Late, I Didn't Want to Come - Jessica Hart

I identify as an introvert. I'm an introvert with an extroverted mother who seemed to think I had a flaw that needed to be fixed. Jessica Pan does NOT hold that view, and she makes this clear in the author's note at the opening of this book. I raise this for people who are offended that this book even exists. Listen, Pan is not betraying her people. She never stops being "one of us."

Jessica Pan, raised in Amarillo, Texas; the daughter of a Chinese father and a Jewish mother, graduate of Brown University (so she's lived in Providence, RI); lived in Beijing, Paris, Melbourne; married to an English man with whom she currently resides in London--faced the scenario of having no friends (other than her husband Sam) where she lived. Her close friends were scattered across various countries. She face the realization that she was lonely and depressed. Her goal in experimenting in a year of "extroverting" was to build a new friend group, with the kind of friends who would "help you hide the body."

In case you are shout-thinking that Pan just needs to read Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking , rest assured that she has, and she even cites it. She notes frequently that introverts value and crave "deep talk," and she triumphs whenever her new strategies allow her to achieve this kind of talk with new people.

During her year of "extroverting," Pan does scary things like talking to strangers, taking improv class, sharing a story on The Moth, taking stand-up classes that lead her to doing a stand-up routine a few times, going on a solo "surprise me" adventure trip (that mysteriously leads her to Budapest), and hosting a dinner party.

Spoiler alert: by the end, she still identifies as an introvert, though she believes she may have shifted from "shy introvert" to "gregarious introvert." Most of her new friends also identify as introverts. If you are an introvert who is offended that this book even exists, please just give it a chance. You don't even have to tell anyone.

Side note: One of the "Questions about this book" posted last year (2019) was whether there was a book from an extrovert choosing to live as an introvert for a year. Pan replied, positing that such a book would be called Sorry I'm Early, I Needed to Get Out. Ironically, now that we are in a global pandemic (for people reading this in the future, I am writing this in June of 2020)--we might well end up with plenty of memoirs in the genre of "Extrovert Forced to Live Like an Introvert During Quarantine."

Parker Looks Up: An Extraordinary Moment - Parker Curry,Jessica Curry,Brittany Jackson
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

An absolutely stunning book about a simple trip to the museum that inspired one little girl's dreams. A perfect example of why representation is so important. Every person needs to see themselves positively reflected in all areas to feel connection and show that they can do anything.

The simple narration worked perfectly for this story. It is a simple story and when told in a simple way, it really emphasizes the experience and impact rather than getting bogged down in wordy narration.

Also, that artwork is just perfect. I loved the bright feel. Each page is magical. That's nothing else to say. Every bit of it is amazing and adds to the inspiration of the story.

A beautiful work that emphasizes positive representation, inspiration, confidence, kindness, and the drive to do anything. Simple yet eloquent. A lovely book that shows how one simple moment can change the world.
