VBB Weekly – 12.30.2013

Hope everyone had a great holiday! I was able to read seven books during the break! I didn’t get a chance to get through last week’s list, however, because I went through all three fabulous books of the Remember When series and both books of the Just Human series. Both sets were great and I highly recommend them! Now, I’m enjoying the final days before everything goes back to normalcy. Wishing you all the happiest New Year! ♥

Must Reads of the Week

remember when

Ah! I LOVED LOVED LOVED these books! Funny, romantic, heartfelt and completely and instantly absorbing. I read all three books in 24 hours! They are that good! They also feature the best 80s/90s references that had me missing that crazy and colorful time in my life. This story is a second-chance romance about two people who grew up and fell in love in high school, then split apart, only for the guy to become one of the hottest movie stars in the country. Go grab these now! You’ll won’t stop smiling!
