Review of The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the best burger in Los Angeles) by Amy Spalding (physical ARC)





The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the best burger in Los Angles) by Amy Spalding


Seventeen, fashion-obsessed, and gay, Abby Ives has always been content playing the sidekick in other people’s lives. While her friends and sister have plunged headfirst into the world of dating and romances, Abby has stayed focused on her plus-size style blog and her dreams of taking the fashion industry by storm. When she lands a prized internship at her favorite local boutique, she’s thrilled to take her first step into her dream career. She doesn’t expect to fall for her fellow intern, Jordi Perez. Abby knows it’s a big no-no to fall for a colleague. She also knows that Jordi documents her whole life in photographs, while Abby would prefer to stay behind the scenes.

Then again, nothing is going as expected this summer. She’s competing against the girl she’s kissing to win a paid job at the boutique. She’s somehow managed to befriend Jax, a lacrosse-playing bro type who needs help in a project that involves eating burgers across L.A.’s eastside. Suddenly, she doesn’t feel like a sidekick. Is it possible Abby’s finally in her own story?

But when Jordi’s photography puts Abby in the spotlight, it feels like a betrayal, rather than a starring role. Can Abby find a way to reconcile her positive yet private sense of self with the image that other people have of her?

Is this just Abby’s summer of fashion? Or will it truly be The Summer of Jordi Perez (and the Best Burger in Los Angeles)?

Some of my auto buy authors


I’ve seen a couple people post about their auto buy authors and thought I would share some of mine.  I actually have quite a few and I won’t remember to put all of them here.  Most of these are newer favorites.




Adam Silvera.  I was hooked after reading History Is All You Left Me and They Both Die At The End was so good, too.  He breaks my heart and makes me cry.  I have yet to find an author that makes me connect to the characters so much.  I will buy anything he writes.  And he’s an awesome human being.

You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon


A moving, lyrical debut novel about twins who navigate first love, their Jewish identity, and opposite results from a genetic test that determines their fate—whether they inherited their mother’s Huntington’s disease.

Eighteen-year-old twins Adina and Tovah have little in common besides their ambitious nature. Viola prodigy Adina yearns to become a soloist—and to convince her music teacher he wants her the way she wants him. Overachiever Tovah awaits her acceptance to Johns Hopkins, the first step on her path toward med school and a career as a surgeon.

But one thing could wreck their carefully planned futures: a genetic test for Huntington’s, a rare degenerative disease that slowly steals control of the body and mind. It’s turned their Israeli mother into a near stranger and fractured the sisters’ own bond in ways they’ll never admit. While Tovah finds comfort in their Jewish religion, Adina rebels against its rules.

When the results come in, one twin tests negative for Huntington’s. The other tests positive.

These opposite outcomes push them farther apart as they wrestle with guilt, betrayal, and the unexpected thrill of first love. How can they repair their relationship, and is it even worth saving?

From debut author Rachel Lynn Solomon comes a luminous, heartbreaking tale of life, death, and the fragile bond between sisters.

Down the TBR #17

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by lost in a story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go


As before, if there are no comments below the cover, I just don’t really remember adding the book to my list.   I will be doing 15 again this week.



Frozen by Melissa De La Cruz & Michael Johnson  I like Melissa’s books, but I doubt I’ll get to this one.

Ace of Shades Book Tag (Irons Edition) #AceofShades #Irons #ShadowGang


I am part of the Ace of Shades Street Team (Irons), so I thought I would give this tag a try.  I found it on the Literary Phoenix blog.


I don’t think I’ll have answers for all of the questions, but can hopefully fill out most of them.


Ace of Shades takes place in the very mysterious, very dangerous City of Sin. Name a fictional city with a personality of it’s own!


I think my go to answer for questions like this have to be the world of Harry Potter.  The whole city feels alive with magic and different creatures.  I can’t think of any other one that has so much personality.
