A nostalgic re-read that makes me want to devour the whole series
The humour perfectly balanced out the tangled love lives, while not concealing the book's heart as Caro's desire for love gets a little out of control...
An atmospheric, apologetically feminist horror that has three girls tangled up with love and lies as a monster stalks girls on the island.
A light, fun AU with messy royalty and funny hijinks, though the world building is very shaky.
A lovely contemporary romance about the many types of love set against a summer in Taipei
