5/5 ⭐️

Surprisingly, I‘ve never seen the movie. Given this is October, I thought I‘d read a Steven King. I really enjoyed this one and it was a good change from the romances I‘ve been reading.

Emily92Bibliophile @Joseph5 Scribd is a good app. Not free ( in audiobook world you can‘t get a good free app that has recent audio books). Scribd is $8 a month but definitely worth it. Audiobooks and eBooks. Your local library would be a good option for free audiobooks. 2mo
Joseph5 @Emily92Bibliophile thanks for your recommendation but in my country we don't have international billing system and that is why I need free sites or apps anyways am delighted for your reply👌👌 2mo

I had really high hopes for this book and I will say I was a little worried in the beginning. I caught myself skimming parts and just didn‘t care for the writing in the beginning. Butttt.... Mariana redeemed herself in the end. I fell in love again and her characters are just so realistic and loveable. ❤️ Second chance romances are hard to write and not always my favorites but Mariana did a great job with this one.

4/5⭐️

I became a huge fan of Kim Jones at Book Bonanza this year. The girl is hilarious. She hosted the closing ceremony and completely stole the spotlight. 😂 I‘d never read any of her books so I needed to give her a try. This wasn‘t what I was expecting. It was much more serious than I would expect from her. I did find it funny that she made Harper Sloan into a stripper. That was perfect. 🤣 #romantsy #badboy

Two more miles this morning. I might need to go on another walk this evening so I can finish this book! It‘s really starting to pick up.

This one was tough to read but the message was so worth it. It‘s a book everyone should read. I wish I had read it prior to meeting her last weekend! She was sweet and reserved but so endearing. I‘ll never forget how she stood with her readers rather than sitting behind a table. It gave the signing a more intimate feeling and helped make us feel like we were on the same level. ❤️ #authorsigning #romantsy #bookbonanza19

This book was way too predictable. I‘ve read too many with similar storylines. I caught myself skimming pages which isn‘t a good sign for me. This is my first book from this author and I had high hopes. I still might try one of their rom-coms but this one was a flop for me. #romantsy #bookbonanza19

I‘ve avoided reading this series, mainly because for the longest time I was annoyed by the price of each of the “mini-books”. I felt these could‘ve been combined to one book but they drug it out. But....in the hopes that I will meet Colleen and Taryn next month at #bookbonanza19, I gave it a try...and I‘m really liking it. It‘s hard to rate each book individually though because IT SHOULD ALL BE ONE BOOK!! #romantsy

I don‘t usually add children‘s books to my list of read books but since my 4 year old has had me read this one to him about 1000 times this month, I think I‘ll add it. 😄 He‘s all about cars so I knew he‘d love this one but it‘s also one I enjoy reading to him aloud. I‘m a sucker for kids books that have a rhythm when read aloud (like Dr. Seuss). #childrensbook
