I‘m doing a reading challenge this month, and one of the highlighted authors is Meg Cabot. I‘ve had this on my TBR for a while but never picked it up, until now. I‘m actually enjoying it and cracking up quite a bit!

Christmas gift from my husband. I absolutely love to cook, so I‘m interested to read all about the science behind so much of it.

My #18in18, with The Great Alone being my absolutely favorite this year. It‘s been amazing year in reading for me... found my love of young adult, read a Science Fiction book and actually loved it, and I need more Fredrik Backman and pirates.

I really loved this book! I read reviews where people couldn‘t stand the main character, but I actually rooted for her. It was a perfect read just before Christmas. I‘d love some sort of follow-up to this book.

Finished “Struck By Lightning.” I had absolutely no idea that one of my favorites from Glee was an author! I enjoyed the story and Carson‘s issues with those around him, but he really became just as bad, IMO. I feel that the story wrapped too quick. I would have liked for Carson and his mom to have more of an interaction regarding what she had done. Even so, this had me laughing often.

While short, it was definitely fun, well written, and I really enjoyed it. There‘s a line outside for the latest Star Wars movie, but there are only 3 people in it. Elena doesn‘t care, however, since it‘s all about the experience. Loved reading about the experience, the characters, and the ending had me cracking up!

I needed a light, quick read about best friends for a readathon. I totally felt for the 2 main characters, who quite honestly, have completely messed up lives. The only issue is that this was too short. There‘s so much that can be done with the characters and their situation that would make a great book. Maybe the author will write more with Sophie and Carter in the future.

My August reads. I didn‘t read as much as I had planned, but it‘s all good since I was truly enjoying my summer. Fell into “The Selection” rabbit hole, as well as the ACOTAR and The Grisha series. My Plain Jane was probably my favorite - made me laugh through! Also passed my NEWTs with 1 Outstanding, 3 exceeds expectations, & 4 Acceptable. #augustreads #bookstagram #ripreadathon #magicalreadathon2018 #newtsreadathon2018

Really enjoyed this book. Loved the size & how it felt in my hands. The cover... beautiful. It was great to read something & just say, “Yes! That‘s how I feel, too!” I enjoyed the insights about sharing your favorite books with others, empathizing with the different “Book problems” (like not being able to put the book you just finished behind you because you still want to live it), & looking back at the Book that really got you hooked.

I‘m reading an ARC of Anne Bogel‘s “I‘d Rather Be Reading,” and I love it! This paragraph hit home because it‘s the same book that got me totally into reading. Sure, I read an occasional book, but after a college roommate told me to check out The Firm by John Grisham, I was hooked. It really just did something for me and my TRUE love of books. #idratherbereading

Finished “The Summer Wives.” It spans a few different time periods, discussing love, crime, and high society. I ended up really liking the book, even though I felt that the main love story wasn‘t reasonable. I enjoyed the characters, however, and how everything intertwined and wrapped up. I also enjoyed the aspect of the haves and the have-nots in the story. #boutofbooks #newtsreadathon2018

Finished “The One” by Kiera Cass, #3 in The Selection series. I loved this one, too, and I especially liked seeing America grow as a person (and quite honestly, stop annoying me so much.) I‘m not sure if I want to go to #4, so I‘m trying the novellas right now. Still... highly recommend this series!

I finished reading “The Selection” this week. I‘m late to the game, but omg, I loved it!

❤️I. Loved. This. Book!!❤️
Essie is the daughter of a preacher. Their family makes their living by filming reality TV. Essie acts sweet and unsuspecting, but for many years, she has been coming up with a plan. What a great story! I loved how this whole story unfolded, and I loved both Essie and Rourke. Sad that it ended, Happy that I got to read it! #thebookofessie #finished2018
