2 #libraryholds from Libby came in this afternoon but I‘m having them delivered later because I want to take a break from reading until next month.
Omg I freaking love this book. The dialogue was top notch and laugh out loud funny! So so great ❤️
1. Current reads…
I‘m reading way too many books at the same time lately, but I am enjoying the tagged one today.
2. Last caffeinated beverage you drank... Coffee this morning.
3. Any fun fall plans…
Went to an apple picking party at my brother‘s house today! Enjoyed lots of fresh apple juice 🍁🍎
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was cute. Driven literary agent is dumped multiple times in ways reminiscent of Hallmark movie tropes and her sister suggests they take an extended vacation in a town that was a setting for one of the MC author‘s bestsellers. Romance, self-discovery and evolving family relationships ensue.I didn‘t love People We Meet on Vacation, but I‘m glad I gave this one a go!
I don‘t like romance novels. I don‘t like the tired tropes, the eye-rolling scenarios, the compressed timelines, the neat-and-tidy resolution. But y‘all—this book is FUNNY! It acknowledges and pokes fun of the tropes with a sly wink while dutifully following the script. I laughed out loud at the wit and snark and found myself rooting for the predictable ending. So I guess I don‘t like romance novels —unless they are written by Emily Henry. 🤷🏻♀️
Giving this one another try!! 💙📚💛
This is the most delightfully subversive description of a dive-bar restaurant and I can‘t stop laughing.
I loved this book SO MUCH. But I think some of that is because I saw a lot of myself in Nora, navigating the weight of familial responsibility (even when rooted in love), and my personal history with both NYC *and* the Blue Ridge Mountains as it happens. Add in some classic Hallmark movie tropes, and BOOM. I have no complaints.
Though if my own "happily ever after" could hurry up and happen in a bookstore aisle it would be much appreciated ?

It's a rainy, lazy day, I'm reading a good book, and my sweet Moxie decided to climb under the blanket and snuggle (peep that sweet paw!). Today is a good day (I just hope I don't have to use the bathroom anytime soon 😹)
This resort in Mexico has quickly become one of my go-to happy places when I need a getaway. This trip is a solo, lay out with this view and a book, drink some cocktails, eat yummy food, and recharge kind of vibe ☀️
Maybe love shouldn‘t be built on a foundation of compromises, but maybe it can‘t exist without them either. Not the kind that forces two people into shapes they don‘t fit in, but the kind that loosens their grips, always leaves room to grow. Compromises that say, there will be a you-shaped space in my heart, and if your shape changes, I will adapt.
I don‘t know!! I have so many mixed emotions on this book and I don‘t want others opinions to influence my own. I also feel like this book is kind of forgettable The book was mildly easy to read but I didn‘t feel the need to finish the book you know?! I did because I wanted to see the ending and the epilogue I don‘t know if it sits well with me.
Stayed up way later than usual reading this rom-com in basically one sitting. Really sweet book about sisters as much as about a romance. This genre isn‘t normal for me so I wasn‘t anticipating all the sexy scenes, but that‘s just me. Overall, I‘m glad I spent time with these characters!
The notebook is for keeping track of my #bookspinbingo board, not because I needed to take notes on the book itself. 😋
I‘m so disappointed I didn‘t love this. As with other romance books I‘ve read I just couldn‘t do the overblown writing and metaphors (“like a concrete slab that‘s just been snapped in half, only to realise my insides never quite set”) and the unrealistic motivations of the main character. I spent much of it eye rolling rather than swooning and guessed the plot early on. Not for me, yet I feel disappointed in myself that I couldn‘t just enjoy it!
I was afraid this book wouldn‘t live up to its hype, and I would be disappointed. But I need not have feared. I loved the endearing but flawed characters, the not-predictable plot, the city vs. small town setting (and the way both are shown to their best advantage). The audio was performed by Julia Whalen, one of my favorite narrators. I kept thinking up little brainless tasks to do, just so I could keep listening!
"Dads as a concept, have always felt as irrelevant to my daily life as astronauts. I know they're out there, but I rarely think about them. Suddenly, though, I can almost imagine it. I can almost miss it, this thing I never had." -- Emily Henry
This is a title I'll need to put aside for a little while because I'm just... not feeling it. Every book its reader, am I right?
But this quote... man, did it speak to me.
I am taking a break from Better Than The Movies for a moment as Book LOvers I picked up. It is a seven day loan because...well look at the picture of how many people have it on hold from the library!!
Books are the purest form of escapism. They can take you to any time, place, or culture. In honor of National Book Lovers Day, August 9, we put away our smartphones, pull out a good book and simply read. (Well, an audiobook will
suffice too.) From clay tablets to today's eBooks, literature has played a crucial role in preserving cultures, educating the masses, and storytelling.
