Mini-Reviews: Love & Gelato, Furiously Happy, & Every Heart A Doorway

Here we go again with some min-reviews!! So sorry guys. If you follow me on twitter, you know that I’ve been struggling with reviews. Reading has not been a struggle and I just keep reading. I’m so behind with reviews that I have to do some mini-reviews. πŸ™‚

Love & Gelato (Love & Gelato, #1)

Title: Love & Gelato (#1)

Author: Jenna Evans Welch

Publisher: Simon Pulse

Pages: 389

This was such a great break in all my heavy reading. It was such a cute story but definitely not fluffy. There are times that it is really sad but it’s such a moving story. I really loved Lina’s story and how she’s finding out who she is and where she’s from. Seeing a little bit of Italy through her eyes was also nice. I wish I could be anywhere but the U.S. right now. lol. I didn’t quite like the last 1/3 of the book because of how things kind of happened. I always get so frustrated when people don’t communicate! It really fixes everything but there’s less drama. I get it. I just didn’t quite love all the drama that happens towards the end. Overall, a great book and I can’t wait to read the next one!

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things

Title: Furiously Happy

I didn’t know who this was before reading. I just had so many people recommend it. I did the audiobook version, which was the way to go. This book was a little all over the place but it’s kind of what I liked about it. She goes off on these long tangents of events that happened or what she’s thinking.` It kind of gives you another look at how anxiety can work. I have some anxiety myself and it’s kind of like that. The smallest thing can just make your mind wander like crazy with endless possibilities. Sometimes it was a lot and I did find myself zoning out a bit. It’s okay though. She would say something hilarious to real me back in. Anyways, I really enjoyed this. She shined a light on depression and anxiety, mostly about hers, in a lighthearted and funny way. I laughed so much throughout this book because it is quite funny. I flew through it and I really enjoyed my time reading it.

Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children, #1)

Title: Every Heart a Doorway

Ahh, I liked this but I did not love it like everyone else seems to. I did enjoy some of the characters and I found it entertaining enough to keep turning the pages. I did feel like the first half was a little slow and then a lot was packed into the second half of the book. It was wrapped up so quickly and I really would have loved more there. I did love the ending though. Ahh, so good! I will be continuing the series.

  1. I think I’ll have to read Love & Gelato and look at the rest of the series. They look like books that are perfect book-vacations right now, especially during this pandemic. I’ll have to check them out!

  2. I think that while Every heart is a doorway is a good book, you’ll enjoy the next books in the series more than the first one β™₯ And I haven’t heard about the other two, will have to take a look at the synopsis.

    • Ohh, I’m glad to hear that! I just downloaded book 2 and 3 from the library. I really want to continue but now that I know it gets better, I’m more optimistic! ❀ πŸ™‚
