The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata is a phenomenal book. I’m so excited to share this review with you.
Tristan and Elizabeth have both lost people they loved. Tristan lost his wife and little boy, while Elizabeth's husband past away. They both have to come to terms with the loss of their loved ones and learn to move forward. The question becomes, can they move forward and be happy? Can these two lost souls find love with one another.
If you know me, you know I love romances. Plain and simple. First love stories especially. There is something about first love that just strikes a chord within me as the reader. No Filter is just that, my cup of tea – a first love, contemporary, coming of age story. This had all of my favorite YA literary elements in one. Needless to say, I read this in practically one sitting (with minor breaks to refresh my cup of tea).
“The Boyfriend League” by Rachel Hawthorne is aptly named. Our main character, Dani, wants nothing more than a boyfriend for the summer. Not having ever been in a relationship, Dani imagines having a gorgeous baseball player boyfriend on her arm. Going into her senior year of high school, Dani thinks it is about time she and her best friend, Bird, seriously pursue relationships.
