Ayesha At Last Review: AT LAST, the P+P Retelling I’ve Been Waiting For!

Ayesha At Last Review: AT LAST, the P+P Retelling I’ve Been Waiting For!

Pride & Prejudice + Muslim Remix = Perfect Romcom! Ayesha at Last was sweet, heartfelt, uplifting, and just perfect. I love the nods to Pride & Prejudice, while staying true to the character’s Muslim heritage.

Field Notes on Love Review: Love is like Pizza

Jennifer E. Smith’s books are always short and sweet, and right up my alley. Except I kinda didn’t really like Field Notes on Love very much. Which is a big deal because I am Jennifer E. Smith trash. Field Notes on Love had a really great concept and definitely inspired a wanderlust in me. It follows Hugo, from […]
