Yes, another Shakespeare retelling. This book has a very contemporary feel, but there is some magic involved when two actors are transported into the Romeo and Juliet world!

Penryn teams up with a fallen angel to save her sister after an angel apocalypse.
This book is the very opposite of quirky and light. It’s a very dark, action-packed and intense read. But full of witty banter to keep things fun! I will never be able to recommend this book enough!

If you love classics like Little Women and Anne of Green Gables, you will love this book! It’s written in the form of letters from a grateful orphan getting a free college education from and anonymous donor to that anonymous donor. It’s full of fun and romance, and set in the early 1900s.

Happy Reading!
