Royals (aka "Prince Charming") (Royals #1) by Rachel Hawkins

Image
 Hey Everyone!   So I finished another book! I actually just upped my  Goodreads  reading goal, because I had it set to 10, and I've already surpassed it! I have it now set to 25, which if I keep going the way I have been these last few months, I shouldn't have a problem at all!  :).  It was a long week for us!  We had appointments after appointments.  And then on Friday I did the most horrible thing...dropped my phone into our pond.  😭😭😭😭😭 It is gone.  We can't find it.  Our pond is super deep, and you can't see to the bottom.  My husband tried for hours!  He went in, and swam around, and then I ran from store to store to find a huge magnet and rope, and then he went fishing for it for hours and hours.  But no luck.  So Friday we got to run to the Apple Store in the evening and get me a new phone.  I'm just super bummed, because normally I would love a new phone, but I truly love my XS Max.  And the worst part, it had all the photos of my son on it, from birth

 Hello Everyone! I finally finished a book that I truly truly enjoyed! I'm so excited! This is a new one, that was just released last month!  It's called What's Not to Love  and it's by the authors Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka!  Who are a real life couple and this book, I believe, is semi-based on their life! :) From Goodreads: An academic enemies-to-lovers YA with all the nerdy drama, high school antics, and heart pounding romance of the Netflix original series Never Have I Ever. Since high school began, Alison Sanger and Ethan Molloy have competed on almost everything. AP classes, the school paper, community service, it never ends. If Alison could avoid Ethan until graduation, she would. Except, naturally, for two over-achieving senior with their sights on valedictorian and Harvard, they share all the same classes and extracurriculars.  So when their school's principal assigns them the task of co-planning a previous class's ten-year reunion, with

 Hello! Today's review is on Sophie Kinsella's Love Your Life ! Sophie Kinsella is also the author of Confessions of a Shopaholic and  Undomestic Goddess   (which I reviewed back in early 2011!) I hope everyone is having a good week so far!  It's been a little rough for me, but getting through it slowly.  Taking it one day at a time. :) From Goodreads: From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of I Owe You One , an utterly delightful novel about a young woman who ditches her dating app for a writer's retreat in Italy -- only to find that real love ones with its own filters. Call Ava romantic, but she thinks love should be found in the real world, not on apps that filter men by height, job, or astrological sign.  She believes in feelings, not algorithms. So after a recent breakup and dating app debacle, she decides to put love on hold and escapes to a writer's retreat in remote, coastal Italy. She's determined to finish writing the novel she's been fantas

 Hey! Today's review is for Four Days of You and Me  by Miranda Kenneally! I am enjoying reading so much again, I am just on a roll!   From Goodreads: A new swoon-worthy romance following a couple's love story on the same date over four years. Every May 7, the students at Coffee County High School take a class trip.  And every year, Lulu's relationship with Alex Rouvelis gets a little more complicated.  Freshman year, they went from sworn enemies to more than friends after a close encounter in an escape room.  It's been hard for Lulu to quit Alex ever since. Through breakups, makeups, and dating other people, each year's class trip brings the pair back together and forces them to confront their undeniable connection.  From the science museum to an amusement park, from New York City to London, Lulu learns one thing is for sure: love is the biggest trip of all.  My Thoughts: This one was cute!  I'll be honest, it wasn't my favorite Miranda Kenneally book, but

Hello, Cruel Heart by Maureen Johnson

 Hello Everyone! To all the Mother's out there, Happy Mother's Day! Today, is my first ever Mother's Day, and my husband made me a quiche for breakfast, gave me the beautiful bouquet of mixed roses, and surprised me with my first ever iWatch 😱 (that one was an absolute shock to me! Usually, I have an idea of what he is going to get me, but had no clue today!). Being a Mom, has been the magical time of my life.  I absolutely love being a mom, I love watching my little man grow each and every day.  I love holding him, cuddling with him, seeing him smile when he sees our faces.  He and my husband are my world, and I have no clue what I would do with either of them 💖. It's been a very nice and relaxing weekend so far, and yesterday I ended up getting quite a bit of reading time in (our little guy has been sleeping a lot, we think he is having a growth spurt), and I finished another book! This time it is Maureen Johnson's new novel Hello, Cruel Heart , which tells the

No Offense (Little Bridge Island Series #2)

 Hey Everyone! I took a little break from reading this weekend, to go the opening of Disneyland.  My husband and I took our son and got to be there from Thursday through Monday.  We had the best time, and it didn't leave much time (or any) for reading.  But today, I ended up just reading every chance I got, and just zoomed through Meg Cabot's second book in the Little Bridge Island Series . From Goodreads:  A broken engagement only gave Molly Montgomery additional incentive to follow her dream job from the Colorado Rockies to the Florida Keys.  Now, as Little Bridge Island Public Library's head of children's services, Molly hopes the messiest thing in her life will be her sticky-note covered desk.  But fate-- in the form of a newborn left in the restroom-- has other ideas.  So does the sheriff who comes to investigates the "abandonment".  The man's arrogance is almost as distracting as his blue eyes. Almost... Recently divorced, John has been having troubl
