The Weekend Aesthetic is a feature where I post book aesthetics on the weekend. They might be of a book I’m currently reading, recently read, or read a long time ago.
Shira Barbanel is determined to get a boyfriend this winter break. Her crush will be staying at her grandparents’ house in Nantucket to celebrate Hanukkah with her large extended family, so now is the time. The only problem? She doesn’t know how to flirt. Enter Tyler: the charming and flirtatious boy next door who broke Shira’s heart when they were kids. Who better to give her flirting lessons than someone she’s sworn off for good?
Eight Nights of Flirting is a fun, Jewish romcom set over Hanukkah (and Christmas and New Year’s Eve)! I adored Shira’s large family and all of their traditions. There’s so much wintery goodness squeezed into this book—from being snowed in with no electricity to sledding and snowball fights to hot chocolate and decorating gingerbread houses to all the holiday parties. And of course I loved watching Shira and Tyler grow closer during their flirting lessons and while investigating an old Barbanel family mystery. Their romance is sweet with lots of banter, and I loved how they both push each other to open up with others and be their true selves. This book is perfect for fans of 10 Blind Dates!
