Rating: ★★★★☆

Source: I actually paid for this.

The world’s most popular pop star moonlights as a Girl Detective in THE SECRETS OF THE STARBUCKS LOVERS—a thrilling and illustrated tale that depicts the hilarious (and high fashion) hijinks that ensue when Taylor Swift: Girl Detective takes on the case of a struggling actress receiving threatening messages on her skinny mochas.

Set against the glamorous backdrop of New York City (and even Brooklyn) there is no shortage of intrigue, love interests, sisterhood, and Starbucks jokes in this captivating caper.

“Where are we going?” asked Lorde.
“To Starbucks.” Taylor put on her trademark really cool sunglasses.
“Which one?” Lorde did the same.
Taylor applied a fresh coat of her signature red lip, and smiled.
“All of them.”

I… don’t even know how I found this and I can’t believe I just read it and I really can’t believe I paid $7.50 for it, but it. was. hilarious. It’s packed full of references to Taylor Swift’s songs, Detective Olivia Benson (the feline) plays a minor role, and I don’t know if I’ve ever laughed so much while reading a book. Honestly, I don’t even know if this is a good book or not, but I had so much fun reading it that I can’t go any lower than 4 stars.

If you’re a fan of Taylor Swift and you can spare the $7.50 and you feel like laughing out loud, you really can’t go wrong with this book.

Did you know this book existed? Do you love Taylor Swift as much as I do?

How is it possible that another month has come and gone? I swear that this year is going by faster than ever. I didn’t have as many highly-rated books in June as I had in May — I had nine four- or five-star ratings last month as opposed to twelve in May — but I did read some really, really great books. My top three books are below, but if you want to see everything I read in June, check out my June Page Count.
