Review: There’s Magic Between Us by Jillian Maria (2021)

Heat Factor: Very, very mild, which in this case is absolutely age appropriate.

Character Chemistry: The absolute best kind of YA—not at all angsty, sweet, surprising, and all about that plot.

Plot: Lydia goes to visit her Grandma for a week, and is immediately drawn to the forest—the very forest her mother has described as dark and scary. While exploring, she meets a beautiful and fascinating girl named Eden, who is searching for “treasure”. Soon, she discovers that her whole past and the forest are not at all what they seem…dun, dun, DUN!!

Overall: This book is like a magical snow globe of amazing. I loved it.

Review: I Think I Love You by Auriane Desombre (2021)

Heat Factor: It’s wholesomely sparky, but in a youthful way

Character Chemistry: Emma and Sophia are combative and then cuddly, and it’s extremely cute

Plot: Omg, guys, it’s Much Ado About Nothing but YA and Bi. Hearts just SHOOTING out of my eyes and also I completely forgot how ridiculous teenagers are?

Overall: This is a really sweet and surprisingly complicated book set to the tune of Much Ado About Nothing, and it was lovely.
