Four to Read More – No Love

And now we present Four to Read More, mini collections of four books that share some common theme, whether it’s the name of a character, a cover design quirk, or something else. Inspired by Kelly Jensen’s “Three on a YA Theme” series at Book Riot (take a lookwe’ll wait!), this series will highlight some books you may have missed on the shelves.

If you’re not a Valentine’s Day kind of person, have no fear! Here are some decidedly unromantic but totally engaging reads for this weekend.
