Books I read from: Goodnight June by Sarah Jio
#todayinsixwords: Wish I could’ve stayed awake longer.
I didn’t get to read as much as I hoped – my lunch break was cut short yesterday. I couldn’t manage to stay awake and focus very long last night, either. But I am loving this book SO much. And this morning I woke up to this notification that made my day!
Today’s challenge is Book Pairings hosted by My Overstuffed Shelves. ‘This’ made me think of ‘that’: Just think about the book you are reading now, or one you’ve read before, and tell me something you think goes with it and why.
As I’m reading Goodnight June, I can’t help but think about the movie You’ve Got Mail, and make similar comparisons. If you haven’t seen the movie (you should!) – it’s about two business rivals (Meg Ryan & Tom Hanks) who hate each other at the office (they both own bookstores), but fall in love over the internet. Meg Ryan’s character owns a quaint children’s bookstore, that was in her family for years. This is one of my favorite movies of all time, and I could only dream of owning an old fashioned bookstore, even though I know they are a dying breed. Just something about the atmosphere and being surrounded by so many books – that’s my idea of heaven!
I’m enjoying this book so much – I love the story line and the writing. I just want to curl up on my couch all day and read it. Being a responsible adult sucks sometimes, lol.

Very excited for my first Bout of Books Readathon! I’m glad it’s a week long event because I may actually be able to meet my goal. I don’t plan on doing many of the challenges – my focus is just to read. I will participate some on Twitter and Instagram. With a 3-year-old at home, my reading time is limited, so we’ll see how this goes!
No pretty book stacks because everything is on my Kindle(s).
I haven’t decided yet which one I’m starting today – but I’m picking from these:
Goodnight June by Sarah Jio When We Fall by Kendall Ryan
Happenstance by Jamie McGuire
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren
1. Read as much as I can every day – lunch breaks and after my daughter goes to bed.
2. Hopefully finish 2 books.
3. Check in with other readathoners on blogs, Twitter, & Instagram.
4. Update this master post each day.
I’m excited! Happy Reading Bout of Bookers!
