Book Review: Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann

We all know how much I love a wonderful cover – and WOW, is this a wonderful cover!? I absolutely picked this book up purely on the power of this beautiful woman with her glowing skin, powerful smile, and amazing hair.

So much so that when I discovered that Lin had narrated a YA book previously I had to rush out to listen to it as quickly as possible. Even better is that the book turned out to be really well written with amazing characters so BONUS! Continue reading “Holy Freaking OMG – Lin-Manuel Miranda Narrated an Audiobook!”
