The Quilty Reader

Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.

My (largely failed) NA experiment: trope bingo

In order from best to worst:


Recommended with reservations:


1. Easy by Tammara Webber

2. Best Kind of Broken by Chelsea Fine



Fair to Middling:


3. Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

4. One Week Girlfriend by Monica Murphy (not horrible, but it's only 1/2 of a book)

5. Unfiltered and Unknown by Payge Galvin


Unremittingly vile:


5. Breathe Into Me by Sarah Fawkes

6. Rule by Jay Crownover

7. The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski
