My Goal

My goal this week is to finish the book I am reading right now which is called  The Romantics by Leah Konen and write the review and post it on here. Also to finish coloring the mother's day cards for my mom and my husbands mom and get them out in the mail by May 1st.  Start a new book on Saturday for the Dewey 24 hour readathon I participate in every year. Oh also spend time with my friend and some other ladies from a friendship site we all belong to this Saturday. Can I do it? Yes I can if I put  my mind to it. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Just Another Blog Update

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. As you know my husband and I went up to Pennsylvania to spend  time with my husband's aunt and family. It is very pretty up there. It is also very quite up there where we were because  it is in the country.

Anyway it is back to work for  me. I love reading books and reviewing them. It is so much fun but it is also a lot of work keeping a blog updated all the time.  I want to say thank you again for taking the time to look at my blog. I really appreciate all of you.  Hope everyone has  a good week!

Review: The Wedding Charm: The Wedding Whisperer (A Magnolias and Moonshine Novella Book 4) by Susan Hatler

Here is a summary of what the book is about. Maid of honor Sarah Carlton hasn't  failed at anything  since her high school science project was sabotaged by a relentless competitor. So, she'll do whatever it takes to make her best friend Jill's wedding absolutely perfect.

That includes taking the next flight out of Sacramento to retrieve the panicked bride's cherished  family wedding charm from her late grandmothers's attic in Atlanta Georgia.

Unfortunately, someone else has offered to come to the bride's rescue- best man Ben Atkins, the same man who destroyed Sarah's high school science project all those years ago. Now he wants to one-up her by retrieving the charm first? Sarah refuses to let that happen. The race is on.

When Sarah and Ben arrive in Atlanta, instead of finding the wedding charm there's a letter from the bride's grandmother directing the bride and groom to complete a series of tasks in order to prove their  commitment to each other.

With the wedding only two days away Sarah and Ben must join forces by pretending to be the bride and  groom in order to earn the wedding charm. Should be a cinch. After all, how hard can it be to fake true love for forty-eight hours?

Wow what another great book by Susan Hatler.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I thought it was a cute and funny story with some surprises.

I loved how sweet and romantic the story was. I am going to have to read the rest of this series.

I would  recommend  this book. Go out and buy a copy you will truly  enjoy it.

Happy Reading Everyone!

Review: Bookishly Ever After by Isabelle Bandeira

Here is a summary of what the book is about. In a perfect world, sixteen -year-old Phoebe Martins life would be a book. Preferably one filled with magic  and a hot paranormal love interest.  Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn't even qualify for a quiet contemporary.

Everything changes when Phoebe learns that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her. So, Phoebe turns to the heroines in her favorite books for inspiration, but  becoming as awesome as her book characters isn't as easy as it sounds. When another girl nets Dev for herself right out from under Phoebe's nose, she's crushed.

And, to up the suckage, she gets assigned as his co-counselor at a sixth grade camp and has to spend  an entire week tied to the hip with the one guy on the planet she wanted to avoid.

Can she make it through the potential danger of romantic bonfires and  nature walks, or will her counseling career end in emotional disaster?

Can she ever go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing?

I felt this was a well written story. It is a page turner.

They say boys in books are just better. I have to disagree having a real relationship is always better even though they can sometimes get messy.

I absolutely loved this book. I totally could relate to Phoebe because I am also a book nerd.

I would recommend this book.

I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.

Happy Reading Everyone!
