The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin
July 1, 2019 (by Tara Repucci)
Meet my favorite book of 2019 so far. Tara Conklin’s highlighter-worthy sentences in The Last Romantics tell the story of four siblings—Renee, Caroline, Joe and Fiona—who come of age in the eighties.
Read this when you are in the mood for a completely absorbing character-driven love story with just enough plot twists to keep you turning the pages.
It is Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman meets Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. Best paired with cans of Coca Cola and bowls of green grapes and Chex Mix and hard butterscotch candies.
