Episode 10 on the Shelf Show Notes.
This Episode of Drinks with the Bees we review When the Time is Right by M. Mabie and Ally Martinez. We talk with author M Mabie about the book and the process of writing a book with your best friend.
Drinks of the night:
Becky: Brilliant Blonde from Findlay Brewing Company
Brittni: Whiskey on the rocks
Mo: Mic Ultra
Brittni: This was one of the best damn books I’ve read this year (among some of my all-time favorites). It hit every NEED/Necessary component of a great book for me. Great story line… Characters were complex enough to be believable and realistic, but enough to still have you swooning over (especially that Hudson). It was said in the book, that he would hang the stars in the sky for those he loved, and that everyone that knew and loved him believe he could; and that just goes to show what kind of man he is. Lexi- that girl is my new best book girlfriend, because she said everything I would be saying and was thinking throughout the story. She is strong, but willing to compromise for those she loves. She is witty, but the first to say the things that need to be said. I love her!
Becky: The amount of emotions I have right now after reading When the Time is Right could fill an Olympic pool! I am not usually a fan of Friends to Lovers trope especially when they are close friends, but this was the perfect example of the trope done right! This might be the best read I have read in a very long time. I laughed. I cried. I had so many feels reading this book!
This was my first time reading anything by this author duo and it was wonderful. I loved it. This is totally in the running for one of my favorite books of 2020. I want to call Lex and go have margaritas with her. She is the type of person who would sit and eat all the chips and snark at the world with you. Such a phenomenal read. This is of course a 5/5 star read for me. I really need to give it like 25 more stores. It was just that good!
