My first flight of the day has been delayed by over an hour making it #impossible to catch my connecting flight to SFO. I now have no idea when I will get home today. At least I am enjoying this #romantsy about a rock star and his biographer. #lyricalapril

Cinfhen I'm sorry 😐 traveling delays suck! Glad your book is keeping you entertained 💜📚🍷might help too! 3y
KarenUK Oh no... poor you... but enjoy the extra reading time💕 3y
Sace 🙁 So sorry! 3y

Jas16 @Sace @Suet624 @Cinfhen @KarenUK @Booksandcooks Thank you all. At least I will have a good excuse for not going to work tomorrow. And more reading time is always a plus. Trying to stay positive! 3y

It's moments like this when I wish there were an option somewhere between "pick" and "so-so". Is this book your standard, predictable romance? Yes. Is it entertaining? Mostly.

Not bad, I just kept getting the feeling like I'd read it before, and I know I haven't. A perfectly acceptable romance that didn't knock my socks off.

Suzze Cute pants? Jammas ? Leggings? (edited) 3y
swishandflick @Suzze Thanks! They're leggings 😄 3y
[DELETED] 206653737 I agree with @Suzze cute leggings!! 3y

Lmstraubie I agree. There needs to be a "good" category. I feel like "pick" means it's excellent. Also, great leggings! 3y
Bookladylinda Which Nook are you using??? 3y

Started reading the You Had Me at Christmas anthology with Play by Karina Bliss, a novella that's part of her rockstar series. It was a lovely romance between a couple who met in high school, got married young, now have two kids and are struggling to adapt to life in the limelight. I enjoyed the dual POV and their marriage felt realistic. I'm glad Kayla and Jared managed to iron out their issues.

#bookanddinner: suddenly had a craving for steak so that's what we had. You can see my friend has already started eating in the background while I take this pic. Really enjoyed reading this rockstar romance over the weekend. Great dialogue between the two main characters, Karina Bliss did an awesome job in making me believe in their chemistry and compatibility. Was pleasantly surprised at how introspective their romance was. #romantsy

Chachic @BookThingo You might like this since I know you've enjoyed rockstar romances before.😊 And I remember you previously recommended 3y
BookThingo @Chachic I'll have to add this to my TBR. But at this point I'm more interested in how the steak was! 😂 3y
Chachic @BookThingo It was yummy! My ribeye was better than my friend's filet mignon.😁 If you want to try this series, there's a novella that's part of a Christmas anthology. Hold on, let me tag you on that. 3y

Train rides are great for reading time. Public transport in Singapore is very good so it's the primary way of going around (also because taxis and Uber rides are very expensive). That's why my Kindle comes in handy. I always have it in my bag unless I have a physical book with me. Do you read when you're commuting?

Chachic @Lucky_Ladee Same! But during my morning commute, I usually catch up on my social media accounts like Litsy.😊 3y

I loved these two books! They're rock star romances with a very unique voice--super hot, but also thoughtful. Rise's heroine is a history prof who takes on a rock star bio for money--what a clash of cultures! It's often not true, but in this case you really need to read Rise first as the plot of Fall comes entirely from Rise. #romantsy #rockstars #romance #litsyrecs #lovedit

Chachic You went through these so quickly! I'm still in the middle of Rise and I agree, it really has a thoughtful kind of voice. 3y

Smart way of giving gifts! My book club Secret Santa has wishlists too, and I have a group of friends in real life who do the same. For my last birthday, they gave me an Amazon gift card. 🤗📚 Another friend went with me to the bookstore, I gave her three books I wanted and she chose what she wanted to buy as a present.👐 #romantsy

EloisaJames I just finished Rise and loved it! Just started next one, Fall 3y
Chachic @EloisaJames There's a novella called Play in a Christmas anthology (I posted about it but forgetting the title now). 3y

Bought this rockstar romance after a conversation on Twitter where authors Stephanie Burgis and Laura Florand recommended the series. I think it's the perfect read while I'm getting a hair treatment this afternoon.😄💇 Why flip through magazines when you can read books instead? What do you guys read when you're at the hair salon?

#romantsy #Kindle

EloisaJames People... but I read books in the subway on my phone, which is great. 3y
Chachic @EloisaJames I read on the train too! But my commute to the office is short nowadays so I usually just check Litsy or Twitter. 3y
EloisaJames I just read it (sick in bed) and loved it! Onto sequel 3y

Chachic @EloisaJames SO FAST! Keep me posted on what you think of the next one. Laura Florand said it's great. Hope you feel better soon! 🤗 3y
EloisaJames @Chachic I really like both of them a lot! I have to give a eulogy today for a 101-yr-old friend so no more being sick in bed and reading about gorgeous rockers. 3y
Chachic @EloisaJames Oh no, so sorry to hear that. My condolences. 3y
EloisaJames @Chachic 101 is a good age! 😘 3y
Chachic @EloisaJames Definitely! She/He must have lived a full life. 3y

I stayed up way too late last night because I was in denial that the weekend is over.😪 I was sampling Rise as recommended by @meandmybooks , I don't think I've read any of Karina Bliss' books before. Not finished with the sample yet but I have a feeling I'll buy this.

So because I stayed up, I needed coffee! One of my go-to cafes near the office is this place called Strangers@Work.☕👍

Chachic @EloisaJames I think you were looking for rock star romances at one point? Not sure if you've read this. 3y
EloisaJames @Chachic yes, thanks!! 3y
Chachic @EloisaJames I've only tried the Kindle sample but it looks interesting so far! 😊 Plus it's a whole series featuring rock stars 3y
