This book is just too cute for words! I recently stumbled across it on Goodreads while looking for new epistolary novels to read, and boy am I glad that I did! Sweet, charming, and down right funny, there was almost nothing about Goodnight Tweetheart that I didn’t like! Goodnight Tweetheart tells the story of Abby, … Continue reading

Dear Reader: My Love of the Epistolary

Dear Reader: My Love of the Epistolary

It’s time for another bookish confession: I have a weakness for Epistolary novels. Actually, weakness might not be the right word to describe my relationship with this form of writing….
