Who is Christina Lauren? This is the same question I was asking myself a few months ago when my sister told me I needed to read the book The Unhoneymooners written by Christina Lauren.
Christina Lauren isn’t actually one person, it’s two! Writers, Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings are two friends that decided to try to write together. This concept to me is a little mind blowing, I can’t even begin to imagine trying to write a story, let alone, books, with another person. To have the same writing voice, and vision, and thought process would be so difficult. But these two awesome ladies make it work, and make it work well!
I love to read and I’m finally getting back into the swing of regularly reading. I’ve always considered myself someone that keeps up with the latest literary writers and up and coming books. This one I’d definitely never heard of though. My sister is the queen of giving any good book cover a chance. (We both really prefer good ol “rom-com” books) I remember her telling me this is her favorite book cover, so I thought I’d better give it a shot.
I hadn’t read in ages and really wanted to get into a good book. So I downloaded (I know some of you are cringing) The Unhoneymooners on my Kindle and started reading. I was immediately drawn into the story. The Unhoneymooners is a story about the unluckiest girl, who has always been a bit in the shadows of her luckiest twin sister. Her fate starts to change when she goes on a fake honeymoon with her sworn enemy. What I loved most about this book was it’s humor! It had me rolling in spots, and cringing in others. What I really appreciated about the book was it had a few different layers to unfold to get the whole story. I loved this book! It kept me on my toes never wanting to put it down. It’s hilarious, it’s steamy, and it’s just a good story! Loving this led me to wanting to read more by this dynamic duo.
So, next up, Twice In A Blue Moon. I’ll admit, once I find a really good book I’m a little hesitant to get too enthusiastic about the author and so I read a second book with caution. When I started this one out, I was a little worried. It was slow starting and the characters just didn’t seem as good as the characters in The Unhoneymooners. With that said, once I reached a certain point in the book (one that wasn’t too far in) it was hard to put it down! It’s a story of a young love affair, the only catch is the girl is the daughter of the most famous actor in the world…but he has nothing to do with her. This story takes twists and turns I didn’t see coming, a really well told story when it’s all said and done. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on another, and I was not disappointed!
Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating might be the funniest book I’ve ever read. It had me literally laughing out loud throughout the book. It’s a book about two people who have a strange past history that meet again once they’re older and fall into becoming best friends. I couldn’t get enough of this book. I really love the characters in this one! It’s pretty steamy in places, and made me blush a few times, but the story itself is just as good as those rom-coms we all like to watch. I’d love to see this one turned into a movie.
So if I haven’t convinced you with these three book recommendations, then maybe we just aren’t the same kind of people?! Haha! But really, I can’t wait for their new book Honey-Don’t List to come out in March. Until then, who are you reading?
