A book you need if youâ€™re hungry for some good, non-stop laughter.
Quick excerpt from Senyora:
â€œLalong dadami ‘yung mga haters na nagsasabing dalawa raw ang likod ko!
My gad! As if naman nakakabawass ng ganda ‘yun! Well, hindi lang nila matanggap na nung nagsabog ng kagandahan, kaseksihan, at katalinuhan e dun lang nagpaulan sa hacienda ko. Pwe!”

She says it is an adventure to be relishedâ€”filled with laughter, friendship, and blessings. So hope for romance, but with or without it, crank up the music and dance!
Not about the usual line you hear from someone breaking up with you, but this book â€œItâ€™s Not You: 27(Wrong) Reasons Youâ€™re Singleâ€ is about busting the myths people say to dump the fault on you. Words like, â€œYouâ€™re too independentâ€; or â€œYouâ€™re too pickyâ€ – are just that: myths. Based on her column, â€œModern Loveâ€, Sara Eckel advises single people to stop self-destruction but instead be guided by their own personal wisdom and judgement to know what is right for them. She argues that thereâ€™s no one reason why youâ€™re still single.

If youâ€™re on the bigger side, this novel is delightfully for you! Itâ€™s about big-sized Victoria Dawson who hurried to get out of her family home and start her career in New York City. She fights the battle against her weight to forget all the hurts she has experienced growing up with her family. Until one day she faced a deeply upsetting betrayal, and a family confrontation lead to a turning point.

This one is for the single mom (or widow) whoâ€™s in search of the real thing when it comes to love.
Hereâ€™s a summary of whatâ€™s inside:
Holly didn’t expect to be a widow at thirty-two. She also didn’t expect to be so big. After her husband’s death, food was the one thing she could always count on. Then she meets Logan Montgomery, a personal trainer so hot that he makes her sweat in all the right (and so embarrassingly wrong!) places. Charmed by her witty wisecracks and sharp insights, he impulsively offers to help get her back in shape.
To Logan’s (and her own) surprise, Holly turns out to be a natural in the gym, slimming down into a bona fide looker with killer curvesâ€”and a new kind of hunger. Before either of them can stop it, the easy intimacy of their training sessions leads to even more steamy workouts away from the gym.
Do you get judgement from people saying the reason why youâ€™re still single is because you have an intimidating personality? Well hereâ€™s your revenge! Join Lexiâ€™s game. Hereâ€™s a sneak peek of the story:
Don’t mess with a girl with a great personality.
Everybody loves Lexi. She’s popular, smart, funny…but she’s never been one of those girls, the pretty ones, who get all the attention from guys. And on top of that, her seven-year-old sister, Mackenzie, is a terror in a tiara, and part of a pageant scene where she gets praised for her beauty (with the help of fake hair and tons of makeup).
Lexi’s sick of it. She’s sick of being the girl who hears about kisses instead of getting them. She’s sick of being ignored by her longtime crush, Logan. She’s sick of being taken for granted by her pageant-obsessed mom. And she’s sick of having all her family’s money wasted on a phony pursuit of perfection.
The time has come for Lexi to step out from the sidelines. Girls without great personalities aren’t going to know what hit them. Because Lexi’s going to play the beauty gameâ€”and she’s in it to win it.
