I didn't see that coming. I feel like so many moving parts are under the surface. The Queen is slowly understanding life with the twelve men isn't all it appears to be.

Sold on a Monday: A Novel | Kristina Mcmorris

It aggravates me when I end up in the book minority. This just isn‘t for me.

You think by the cover that it would be about the children but it‘s not the focus. The book is about Ellis‘s struggle to make it as a big time newspaper reporter and Lily‘s mom guilt.

It got a third of the way in and decided to DNF.

The concept of this series is so origin and surreal I couldn't help but be hooked. Twelve men, one queen, and the year she spends with them with a marriage at the end. But to who?? There is some intense intimate scenes.

Wow! There were moments when you could hear their voices and smell the Roman luxury. I enjoyed seeing Rome through the eyes of the Vestal Virgins who held more power than I could have imagine but at a great price.

TheAromaofBooks I specifically made a reading list during last year's WinterGames based on the reviews everyone was posting, and have been collecting copies throughout the year. I'm so excited about doing the same thing this year!! I never used to read Christmas books, but I'm SO into it now! 😂 1w

That comical aspect of this time gave me quite a chuckle. The cringe-worthy ideal of capitalizing on people sick with nothing concrete to offer but clean air. The strange competition created between Bath and Sanditon...lol!

There is beauty in the ability to look at a past situation for what it truly was outside of the lens of emotions. Ren battled so much loss. Loss of her mother, her first love, her purpose, her life compass. Wes provided her a lighthouse to find the shore during tumultuous times. This was a beautiful read with all the feels both loving and intense.

What a beautifully food-centric reflection on a life. Tucci does a wondering job narrating. I was salivating multiple times at his description of foods/dishes. I am going to get my hands on his cookbook.
