So I’m being corny, you all love it!! 😬 If you haven’t heard about this book then you need to go pick up a copy from your library and read it!!! Serious Moonlight by Jenn Bennett is a YA Romance, but it is sooo much more than a romance. Newly released earlier this month, this beautiful story will tug on your heartstrings and open your eyes to more sensitive topics like taking care of your health and mental health issues. FIVE STAR READ!!!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“Mystery-book aficionado Birdie Lindberg has an overactive imagination. Raised in isolation and homeschooled by strict grandparents, she’s cultivated a whimsical fantasy life in which she plays the heroic detective and every stranger is a suspect. But her solitary world expands when she takes a job the summer before college, working the graveyard shift at a historic Seattle hotel.
In her new job, Birdie hopes to blossom from introverted dreamer to brave pioneer, and gregarious Daniel Aoki volunteers himself as guide. The hotel’s charismatic young van driver shares the same nocturnal shift and patronizes the waterfront Moonlight Diner, where Birdie waits for the early-morning ferry after work.
Daniel also shares her appetite for intrigue, and he’s stumbled upon a real-life mystery: a famous reclusive writer, never before seen in public, might secretly be meeting someone at the hotel.
To uncover the writer’s puzzling identity, Birdie must come out of her shell…discovering that the most confounding mystery of all may be her growing feelings for the elusive riddle that is Daniel.”
I am not normally a huge fan of the Romance genre, but this book totally swept me off my feet!!!! Not just about young love between Birdie and Daniel, but love between Birdie and her Grandfather and Aunt Mona. It touches of family, trust, mental health, and other health issues. You follow Birdie and Daniel on their grand adventure trying to solve the mystery of the ever elusive writer, and you solve so much more than that. Not wanting to spoil anything, all I can say is that everyone must read this book! READ THIS BOOK, for the love of god please everyone read this book! 😂😍🥰😄😬🤓🤩 Did I make myself clear? I love this book, it is amazing and you need to read it. Hahahahaha. Ok, that’s enough of that. Never in my life have I seen such character development, such raw emotion and such endearing characters! I just wanted to reach into the pages and hug Birdie so many times. I also would love to go solving mysteries with her, we could be real Nancy Drew characters!!!
I am incredibly sad that this book is over, my life will never be the same. *sniff, sniff* Can I have a box of tissues please? Man, it’s going to be hard to jump back in to one of my other books after that five star read. Let me know if Serious Moonlight is on your radar and what you think of it! Have you had any other books that left you feeling like this? What are they? 🙂 Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear from you.
Happy Reading!! 🤓
