These Books Aren't All New??

Books are expensive. I tend to pick and review books that are both new & old. Many of these books you will be able to find on the shelves on your library as opposed to the front of your bookstore.

I believe that there are many hidden gems from years gone by & I enjoy highlighting those as well as today's best sellers.

Amor & Summer Secrets


Amor & Summer Secrets, Diana Rodriguez Wallach

This book was really a nice YA book. Drinking played a majorly small role in the book, sex was just a few sweet kisses & drugs weren't even mentioned.

Against her wishes, Mariana is shipped off to chaperone her older brother to meet long forgotten relatives on a summer trip to Puerto Rico. Mariana & her brother Vincent are from a wealthy area of Philadelphia, with 5,000 square foot houses & marble bathrooms for everyone. The family is ruled by her father & sharing thoughts & emotions is discouraged.

Welcome to Puerto Rico & culture shock! Warm, effusive distant realtives in a very small abode, with one bathroom for everyone to share is a real wake-up call for Mariana. Throw in cousin who's Mariana's mirror image, except for her two prominent endowments & there's a lot going on in this fun book.

I would have liked to see a little depth to Mariana's first romance, but the story continues with Rodriguez Wallach's next book in the series, Amigas & School Scandals.
