Kisses and Croissants, Anne-Sophie Jouhanneau

Kisses and Croissants by Anne-Sophie Jouhanneau was basically made for me. A story about ballet, set in Paris, with a helping of French pastries, this is an enjoyable read with an engaging plot. I especially enjoyed the main character’s passion for dance, coupled with her ability to live life to the fullest, and the vivid descriptions of Paris throughout the book. I would definitely recommend this one, especially to those looking for a cute contemporary this spring. Continue reading

Summary (from Goodreads):

Music brought Autumn, Shay, and Logan together. Death wants to tear them apart.

Autumn always knew exactly who she was—a talented artist and a loyal friend. Shay was defined by two things: her bond with her twin sister, Sasha, and her love of music. And Logan always turned to writing love songs when his love life was a little less than perfect.

But when tragedy strikes each of them, somehow music is no longer enough. Now Logan can’t stop watching vlogs of his dead ex-boyfriend. Shay is a music blogger struggling to keep it together. And Autumn sends messages that she knows can never be answered.

Despite the odds, one band's music will reunite them and prove that after grief, beauty thrives in the people left behind.

Review: The Beauty That Remains by Ashley Woodfolk

The Beauty That Remains by Ashley Woodfolk combines grief and music to create a poignant read. There are three different stories that all connect, and there is so much diversity in the book. While I liked all of the characters, Shay was my favourite, and her story touched me the most. Continue reading
