What a crazy weekend! I had my first therapy appointment, a much-needed therapeutic massage, and finally got my Dutch tattoo. And football started, which means my Sundays will now be spent at my mom’s, watching the games with my family and I couldn’t be happier about that.
Last week, I only finished one book but that’s okay! My reading definitely seems to have slowed down in recent weeks, but I’m not concerned about it. I’m still reading every day and finding fulfillment in it, and it’s kinda nice to not read at such a frenetic pace right now. Perhaps it will pick back up, or perhaps this will be my new normal for awhile. Who knows!
Plot Summary: Kayla arrives at Snow Crystal, a ski resort in Vermont, with one mission: to help this struggling business find its footing and start booking guests again. And then she meets Jackson, the owner of the resort, and sparks fly.
My Thoughts: This was the most perfect contemporary romance novel, filled with lovable characters and the plot reminded me of a Hallmark Christmas movie. (Right down to a “stop the car!” scene at the end, haha.) The setting was so charming and it’s absolutely a book I would recommend to anyone looking for a fun, sexy romance that will leave you feeling oh-so-happy.
My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante – Eh, I ended up abandoning this book. I was enjoying the story, but I also kept thinking about all the other books I could be reading and I wasn’t engaged enough to care about how the plot unfolded. One of those “good for you, not for me” books.
What I’m Reading This Week
- A Million Junes by Emily Henry – I am so close to finishing this audiobook! Only a few hours left. I’ve really enjoyed it, though, and I’m so curious to hear how it ends!
- Persuasion by Jane Austen – Slowly working my way through this classic novel. I have about 100 pages left, so I should be able to finish it sometime this week. The writing is so dense, ah!
- Come as You Are: The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life by Emily Nagoski – What a title, eh? This book has been sitting on my bookshelf for awhile, and I finally decided to pick it up this month. It’s been transformative in helping me to feel more normal and setting a foundation for what sexual desire truly means for women. I may even write a blog post about it, if I have enough courage to do so!
- Taking Fire by Cindy Gerard – My romance for the week! Cindy Gerard is always a sure bet for a great, fast-paced read.
