Beautiful Day
Beautiful Day: A Novel | Elin Hilderbrand
The Carmichaels and the Grahams have gathered on Nantucket for a wedding. Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride's late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter's future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event--but in reality, things are far from perfect. While the couple-to-be are quite happy, their loved ones find their own lives crumbling. In the days leading up to the wedding, love will be questioned, scandals will arise, and hearts will be broken and healed. Elin Hilderbrand takes readers on a touching journey in BEAUTIFUL DAY--into the heart of marriage, what it means to be faithful, and how we choose to honor our commitments.

I read this book after a few heavier books. It was a nice breath of fresh air. The characters were easy to love and hate at the same time and the premise of The Notebook was cute. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I liked the story around this. It reminded me a lot of Seating Arrangements which I loved. But, this had so many characters that it almost felt like it was too much at some points. I think it could have been cut down a lot and focused more on less characters. I liked the wedding drama aspect as I have been through it myself, but just wanted it to be a bit shorter.

The premise of Beautiful Day sounded perfect for a beach read but a terribly flat story filled with shallow, entitled, petty and self centered characters made this one just mezza mezza for me.

I have struggled through books lately (what is the MATTER with Me?) with the exception of Elin Hilderbrand‘s books. This was really good, like an easy fun movie, and read in 24 hours. Just what the doctor ordered.

This was a fluffy and enjoyable #beachread filled with dysfunctional WASPy families trying to get through a wedding weekend. 👰🏼🤵🏼🥂This is far outside my typical genre choice, and I enjoyed the ride. I squeezed it in right at the end of summer! But I wish someone would tell Mother Nature summer is wrapping up, the 95% humidity is getting old. 🌞 🔥 🏖

4thhouseontheleft @Reviewsbylola It is! It came in a recent #OwlCrate box. 1y
Cinfhen Glad u enjoyed your Hilderbrand 💚and don‘t talk to me about humidity ....it is SO HOT HERE😰😰😰 1y
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen I felt bad for the kids here, 1st week of school felt like one of the hottest weeks of summer! In the 90s every day with humidity turned way up! I love summer, but I also love when it‘s over. 😂 1y
Cinfhen Yeah, it‘s really difficult for the kids!!! 1y

I figured I should start on my #beachread for #booked2018 while it‘s still blazing hot outside, and before the fall decorations take over the house. 😂🤷🏻‍♀️🍁🌾🍂

4thhouseontheleft @ReadOrDieRachel Thanks! A local brewery designed it as a fundraiser for a local LGBT organization after my deplorable state passed HB2 discriminating against people who identify as transgender. It‘s meant for beer, which I never drink, so I use it for iced tea! 1y

1. All my “babies”, human and furry.
2. Two, the tagged book, and At Home by Bill Bryson.
3. PA Dutch soft pretzels and pot pie.
4. Not really!
5. Access to every book ever written.

4thhouseontheleft @CatLass007 @MinDea Thank you! @MommyWantsToReadHerBook I have to admit I‘m not loving it as much as I had hoped. Some chapters are fascinating, but others just make me yawn. I usually love Bryson‘s style, but it‘s not fully working for me on this one. 1y

I borrowed this book from my mother-in-law and was not expecting to like this book as much add I did. The story centers around a wedding of Jenna, a girl who has lost her mother to cancer. Before her mom passes away, she writes out Jenna's entire wedding in a notebook. The POV chapters are the various characters from Jenna's wedding. Family is a big theme, obviously. There is also a lot of humor which lightens this book up. I loved it!

Since I'm nearly done reading the book "Leaving Time" by Jodi Picoult, I asked my son to help me pick my next read from my book lottery...and this is the book he selected. I'm borrowing this from my mother-in-law. This book doesn't seem to be up my normal alley...but I'm just going to try and enjoy it.

An OK read about families behaving badly during a wedding weekend. I just loved how the mother-of-the-bride planned everything from the great beyond

This is for you @Godmotherx5 . 😊 My daughter drew this for me several years ago because she knew it was a favorite saying of mine...so now, it‘s a favorite for two reasons. ❤️❤️ Hang in there, friend...you rock! 🙌🙌🙌😘🤗

#multiplepointsofview #sparklingmaybookishdreams Elin Hilderbrand is one of my favorite authors for a light read! Most all of her books are written from multiple pov... 😊📚📖😘

litmuggle I had never read any of her books unroll this Christmas when I started her Winter Street series and I'm hooked now. I pick up her books every time I see them now. 2y

Not book related but I seriously can't handle how nice the weather has been the past few days in PA. It's crazy February weather and I want it to stay like this forever! 😎 Now if only I had a spot to read outside at home.

In the middle of this one while recouping on the porch. It's not summer time without #ElinHilderbrand and thoughts of #ACK!
