Yes, I know it’s April, and yes, I know everyone else is posting their March wrap-ups, while I’m here with mine for February. I could’ve skipped ahead but I didn’t like the thought of a gap in my archives for 2019, so here we are. Also, I read so few books in March, I need some motivation that I can get back on track this April.
Believe it or not, there was a time that I loved cute romance books and adored books with meet cutes. As I hit my twenties though, I suppose I became somewhat jaded. I hardly reached for these books anymore, and when I did, I didn’t enjoy them anywhere near as much as before. Then along came What If It’s Us. I couldn’t stop smiling while reading it!
Books about music usually are full of heart and soul. On the Come Up is no exception. In fact, it far surpassed more than a few of such books I’ve loved before. On that front, I actually am a bit surprised. I knew that coming from Angie Thomas, this one would be a good book. However, hip hop isn’t generally on my radar, so I did go in with slightly tempered expectations.
