Book Review – Open Road Summer

Open Road Summer book coverOpen Road Summer by Emery Lord

Reagan O’Neill needs to get her life together. She is ready to leave her rebellious ways and bad boys behind. Her best friend, country superstar, Lilah Montgomery, is still nursing a broken heart after a year so when Lilah invites Reagan to join her on her summer tour, it might be the perfect opportunity for some much needed time away. But when Matt Finch joins the tour as Lilah’s opening act, Reagan finds his charm irresistible and her pledge for a drama-free summer begins to look doubtful. This fun, breezy YA romance turned out to be more about best friends Reagan and Lilah than boy meets girl. Yes, of course, there was the obligatory romantic drama but it is the loyalty between the girls that holds this novel together.

Book Review – Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour

Amy & Roger's Epic DetourAmy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

Review: Feel-good, road trip story punctuated by fun little scrapbook items & pictures from the trip scattered throughout the book. I definitely think Ms. Matson did her job well because now I want to go on a road trip. This book was a delight to read and had surprisingly profound depth. I recommend reading the hard copy (either the hardback or paperback) instead of an e-book because I don’t know how well the scrapbook aspect would translate to digital and it really enhanced the whole experience.
