{Cover Reveal} Atheists Who Kneel and Pray by Tarryn Fisher

You all know how much I love Tarryn Fisher and how excited I get for her book releases. She revealed the cover of her upcoming book today, and I love it!


Goodreads

Release: TBD


ABOUT THE book:

Yara Phillips is a wandering muse.
She dates men who need her, but always moves on to something new, never staying in one place for very long.
David Lisey is in need of a muse.
A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he’s found what he’s been looking for.
Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential: A broken heart.
David’s religion is love.
Yara’s religion is heartache.
Neither is willing to surrender, but religion always requires sacrifice.

Five Things Friday ~ 5-19-17

 

1. this week in reading

You guys, if you haven’t read an Amy Harmon book, you’re really missing out. Her writing is so beautiful. This book – I just loved it SO MUCH. I seriously didn’t want it to end.

Now I’m in a book funk and have NO clue what to read next.

2. New Books I’m excited about

    

Since We Fell is my first Lehane book, and my first Book of the Month! Pretty excited to read it. I needed more Kristan Higgins in my life, and I pre-ordered A Million Junes.

3. fun thing(s) from the week

Last weekend I ran my first 5k race since October. I had a pretty good time, good enough to score the third place medal for my age group. I had to bump up an age group this year…blah. Lol. It was perfect running weather, and I was really happy with how I did. I run 5k’s almost every day that I run, but when it’s an actual race I push myself harder. I was just glad I didn’t cause any more strain to my hamstring and that I had a decent time.

After the race I had to book it to the school carnival, where I was signed up to help all afternoon. It was our first carnival, and it seemed to be successful. At least Sunnie had a great time.

The weather in Ohio was gorgeous this week. Went from freezing to hotter than Hades overnight. I tried to get outside a few days and enjoy the sunshine. And I don’t really like having to turn on my AC in May, but it was so hot that I wouldn’t have been able to sleep. And mama needs her sleep.

4. Fit Readers/Life

Sunnie got sick yet again. Ugh. My hubby had strep (second time in 2 months) and was on antibiotics. I managed to avoid it (knock on wood), but Sunnie ended up with a sinus infection. After a week of her being miserable and nothing we did was working for her, the doctor put her on a z-pack. THANK GOD school is almost over!! We need a break from the germ fest.

A few nights of her coughing and sleeping with me meant no running the next morning. I was just too tired. But I did manage to get to the park three days this week for my run. Running outside is always a treat for me. Especially when the weather is perfect for it.

And because fighting illness wasn’t enough, we had to get a new washing machine this week, and call a plumber for issues we were having with our bathroom drains. Adulting ain’t easy or good for my bank account.

5. looking ahead

Today I’m working from home and have managed to fit in some cleaning and laundry. My parents have asked to have Sunnie for a sleepover tonight – they aren’t seeing her as much as before, now that I’m part time. And because she’s their only grandchild and Sunnie loves staying there, I can’t say no. My hubby is hoping to get home from work a little earlier so he can take me out on the boat tonight. Date night on the lake is my favorite!

Tomorrow morning Sunnie has dance competition tryouts (at 9:00…what is this madness). Then we’re meeting one of my girlfriends for lunch (Mexican…margaritas, yes?!) My hubby has a fishing tournament on Sunday, and the weather isn’t looking all that great (rain/storms). Sunnie and I will just be relaxing and taking it easy. On Monday her class is going to the Akron Zoo, and I signed up as a chaperon. We haven’t been to this zoo, and she is excited to go. I could care less about zoos (sorry…just not my thing), but when my child asks me to come I’m not going to let her down. 😉

 

Have a great weekend!

W… W… W… Wednesday, hosted by Taking on a World of Worlds is a weekly meme showcasing what you just finished reading, what you are currently reading, and what you plan to start reading next. Except I’m changing it up a bit, since I can never plan what I’m reading next (moody reader). Instead I’m going to talk about a book I’ve recently added to my TBR that I’m excited about!

what i recently finished reading

Seems like forever ago that I actually finished a book! 2 weeks actually. This one was fantastic, though.

 what i’m currently reading

I am 75% into this book, and it is breaking my heart. In a good way, of course. It wouldn’t be an Amy Harmon book if it didn’t give me all the feels. I’m loving every minute of this one and have been dragging it out on purpose. I don’t want it to end.

 

WHat i have recently added to my tbr

 
I’ve been in a romance mood lately. That’ll probably change tomorrow, but today, when I saw this book on Netgalley, I had to grab it! I have enjoyed this author’s books in the past, and this one sounds really good.

Five Things Friday ~ 5-5-17

 

1. this week in reading

I finally finished this one! It was almost as good as On Second Thought. I can’t wait for her next book!

2. New Books I’m excited about

   

I’m jumping on the Maas train and plan to read the rest of this series.

3. fun thing(s) from the week

I turned 36 yesterday, and it was a great day! I received so many wonderful messages and cards from friends and family and coworkers. It’s really just been a great week. Last weekend my hubby and I had a date night with my best friend and her hubby. After we had an awesome dinner (and cheesecake) we went to a local bar for a few drinks. It was such a great night. Monday I went and got my birthday present – a new tattoo. I LOVE it.

On Tuesday one of my other best girlfriends came into town and treated me to lunch. And last night my hubby and daughter took me to dinner to celebrate. Sunnie was so excited to give me the present she picked out and the card she made me. I felt so loved all week!

4. Fit Readers

The weather has been cold and rainy for the past week, but I did manage to get outside for a run a couple days when we got a break from it. It’s looking like rain for the next several days – yuck! When the weather is doing this in between thing, I find it really hard to be motivated to use my treadmill. I just want to run outside! I cut myself some slack yesterday on exercise and eating (I mean, it was my birthday, so calories don’t count, right?!). I need to make up for it today and at least run on the treadmill, as it’s pouring down rain right now.

5. looking ahead

Sunnie’s final dance competition for the year is this Sunday. We’ll be staying in a hotel Saturday night, as she has to be ready to dance first thing Sunday morning. Because I won’t be home much, my plan is to get as much done as I can today!

 

Have a great weekend!

W… W… W… Wednesday, hosted by Taking on a World of Worlds is a weekly meme showcasing what you just finished reading, what you are currently reading, and what you plan to start reading next. Except I’m changing it up a bit, since I can never plan what I’m reading next (moody reader). Instead I’m going to talk about a book I’ve recently added to my TBR that I’m excited about!

what i recently finished reading

Absolutely nothing 

So, life has been a little busy for the past week. As hard as I tried to fit in some reading time every day, it didn’t always happen.

 

 what i’m currently reading

It rarely takes me over a week to finish a book, and I’m SO CLOSE to finishing this one. I’ve got less than 100 pages left. I’m really loving every minute and don’t mind the slower pace. And I still have no idea how things will end for both sisters, but I do know I’m going to be a bit sad when I finish the book.

 

WHat i have recently added to my tbr

I’ve been trying really hard to ignore the hype surrounding this series. Hyped books tend to disappoint me. But I did read the first book and really enjoyed it (read it as an ARC before the hype got crazy). I have had this second book on my Kindle for awhile, but had zero desire to pick it up. Now that the third and final book has been released, I feel like maybe I want to try this one. Since it’s only a 3 book series, and I’ve read one of them already, it’s not too much of a commitment.
And for all of you that are reading the third book right now, I hope it’s amazing and living up to your expectations! Especially because I bought a copy today. 😉 I’m avoiding any and all spoilers and reviews until I read both books.
