    4 stars! “You are flawless to me” I love all things Penny Reid, so when I saw this book was live, I jumped to one-click it. Something more amazing? The first months proceeds went to hurricane relief efforts. Penny is a fantastic human being, but enough about that! On to the book… Kissing Tolstoy is the story of Anna. Anna is a smart and quirky girl. I loved her from the start. She goes on a blind date, it turns kind of weird, seeing as s...

    “If Russian literature and tragic novels had taught me one thing it was this: disappointment and heartache might be around the next corner. But adventure, love, joy, and happiness—the living of a rich, meaningful life—was now.” Holy adorable, this was the cutest. This is a fluffy, but sexy, short, little romance, that centers around two people and their love for Russian literature! And before I even start this review, let me state that t...

    The book universe needs more authors like Ms Reid. Kissing Tolstoy is such a refreshing take on the student-professor trope and with a bi-racial (Nigerian) heroine to boot.Loved it!

    Thanks to my friend Kiki for recommending this book to me!The book is brilliantly written, well, Penny Reid is known for her intelligent writing. She did it again!I happened to know a bit about Russian literature and I didn’t find any inaccuracies, so the author knows the topic well. Amazing!As to the romantic side of the story – not quite my kind of a romance. I didn’t like MCs much, they frustrated me a lot. The heroine came across as imm...

    Get it here:Amazon US * Amazon UKKissing Tolstoy was a cute, short read. I really liked these characters together and the added bonus of a forbidden professor-student relationship only made me like it even more. The best thing about this was that Anna and Luca didn't fall into a relationship easily. There was a lot of back and forth between them and they challenged each other. I really liked getting to watch them together and I'm actually sad tha...

Men who ride motorcycles, who wear leather like a second skin, and look hot doing it don’t date ladies who idolize Tolstoy. Tuesday night is trivia...

    4.5 STARSLoved this. My only objection was that it was too short. Loved the characters and their witty banter. Loved all the philosophical musings of life, love and tragedy. For being such a short book, I sure did my share of highlighting. So the ending came abruptly, and left me wanting much more from the characters and the story. "You infect me, body and soul, with primitive thoughts of claiming and conquering. I do not know who I am when I t...
