#todayinsixwords: good week, sad BoB is over!

Well, today wasn’t a successful reading day.  But, I’m happy with my overall success this week and meeting my goal.  Another fun Bout of Books!

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge was hosted by Falling Down the Book Hole and it is naming the 5 books you’d have to have with you if the world was suddenly coming to an end.

Obviously I would have to grab SOMETHING by Colleen Hoover.  So, here’s my list.  I would need a variety to keep me going.  And I know this list would change in a year.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski

Goodnight June by Sarah Jio

#todayinsixwords: relaxed with my Kindle and wine

#todayinsixwords: this book is growing on me

I managed to get some reading done over lunch and then a little before bed.  So, yay!

 

Challenge

Today’s challenge is ‘Like This, Try This’ hosted by Lori @ Writing my Own Fairytale.  The rules are…

  • You must recommend a book based on another book, movie, tv show, etc similar to this: “If you liked _____, you should try _____ because _____.”
  • Any genre and reading level is fine and you may use any set-up you like, so long as you’re recommending a book based on something else and explaining why.

 If you liked this…

You should try this…

Don’t Let Go by Sharla Lovelace

Because both are emotional second-chance stories, full of just the right amount of angst and romance.  Beautifully written – they are both the type of book you can’t put down once you start!

#todayinsixwords: wish i could’ve stayed awake tonight

I just couldn’t manage to stay awake very long last night and read, after not getting much sleep the night before.  And tonight I have a work event to attend, so I’m not confident I’ll get a lot of reading done today.  Maybe get some done on my lunch break, hopefully!

No challenge today.  Wasn’t feelin’ it.

Number of pages read today: 196

#todayinsixwords: KR books are sexy, easy reads

Great start to the week for me.  I am happy I finished 2 books (which is technically equal to one, since I’d already started both before Monday).  And now the dilemma is deciding what to start next.  I don’t even know if I’m in the mood for any of the books I listed below (of course).

Challenge

One of today’s challenges is hosted by Crystal at Infinite Ink and she asks the question, ‘Who is your book OTP (One True Pairing)?’  I have a lot of favorite couples, depending on the day and the genre – but I would have to say after finishing Isla and the Happily Ever After last night – right now my favorite couple is definitely Josh and Isla.  The book is absolute perfection!  Their love story left an impression on me that I won’t forget anytime soon.
