This is a YA, fantasy about a young woman who grew up in the Great Library where ancient, magical tomes. The Great Library is attacked and Elisabeth is accused of being responsible. She then has to team up her enemy, a sorcerer to stop the actual attacker.

2. After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5

Taylor Jenkins Reid can do no wrong. This book was typical Reid – beautifully written, completely engrossing, and hard-hitting. This follows a couple going through marital struggles. They decide to take a year apart to decide if they want to make their marriage work. This book was so beautiful.

3. Undeniable (Cloverleigh Farms #2) by Melanie Harlow ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was lucky enough receive an arc of this from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review. This was a really sweet, quick romance. It definitely wasn’t my favorite however. This was almost TOO quick. Their entire romance, near break up, and reconciliation happens in about 3 days. But I’m still looking forward to checking out the rest of this series!
