Why We Love Her:
These books are plain fun and easy to read. Also, she doesn’t shy away from normal awkward behavior and feelings, which is funny. There are multiple entry points for her different series, but you’ll find Easter eggs and cameos from old friends if you keep reading.
She Might Not Be For You If:
You really enjoy an angsty read. Or super domineering heroes.
