I finished this one last weekend, and have been putting off posting about it so I could really think about it. I so enjoyed this book, even though I had no idea which direction it was gonna go. Definitely a book I will be recommending to friends!

I love the cover of this book, it‘s so simple and pretty. I also really enjoyed the book, and had a hard time putting it down. Each chapter was a different characters perspective, which really sucked me in because I wanted to know more. My only complaint is that it ended a little abruptly.

When I just want a quick, lighthearted read...Debbie Macomber is my go to. I love a good romance series, that I can pickup, put-down, read things in between and still remember the important characters.

It was a busy busy week, full of work, travel and travel for work. We spent a week in Utah camping, whitewater rafting, SUPing, and hiking! It was absolutely wonderful, even though I didn‘t hit all of my weekly goals. It was a great reset before our wedding in two weeks. I also didn‘t get much reading done, but I did start the tagged book while at the airport yesterday and haven‘t been able to put it down. #BFCr3

I‘m a day late for week 6 #bfcr2 check-in...but I have a good excuse! We spent the day in Tahoe with family - swimming, relaxing, laughing and playing. I didn‘t finish any books this week, but that‘s ok because I meet my 6 book goal for the challenge last week. I did start two new books though. Lots of short walk breaks at work all week, and a very active Saturday! @wanderinglynn

Week 5 #bfcr2 check-in already?! It‘s been a busy week, but I still managed to finish one book and two audiobooks. Last Sunday we went for a hike and played in the creek, walked every day during my breaks at work, and got in two miles on the treadmill this morning! Books of these books were enjoyable, though I must say Big Little Lies was a little slow. I‘m hoping the show is better...

I enjoyed reading this book so much, I put the audiobook on hold back in February. It finally came in, and just as the book, did not disappoint! That said, I am glad I read the book before listening to the audiobook. I don‘t think I would have enjoyed it as much had I done it the other way around.

#rfcr2 Week 4 check-in! I was sick, so it was kind of a slow week fitness wise. I took Wednesday off work, and stayed home so I could read and sleep all day. It was delightful! We did spend one day last weekend walking around the fair, and I got in a long walk Thursday after work. I finished the tagged book, and am almost done with two others. So, not a total loss. @wanderinglynn

#BFCR2 Week 3 check-in! I think this was my best week so far. I didn‘t finish a book, but I‘m half way done with 3, and I can‘t put the tagged book down. I‘ll likely finish it today. I‘ve been on the treadmill a couple days this week, and took a walk every day during my break at work. AND...I signed up for my next half marathon yesterday! It‘s not until May, but give me something to work towards!

My #bfcr2 Week 2 check in! I finished another book this week, which keeps me on track to reach my end goal. I got a (at least one) walk in every day this week, some longer than others. I had intended to end the week with a hike, but cleaned the garage instead and had a yard sale.

Just finished this one this morning. I‘ve always been a Nicholas Sparks fan. This one was good, and held my interest all the way too the end. It was a little predictable at times, but still good! Also, for #bfcr2 - I‘m a big fan of oven sheet pans. They make it super easy to incorporate lots of different veggies and options are endless! Here‘s a recipe for one. https://gimmedelicious.com/2016/03/22/15-minute-healthy-roasted-chicken-and-vegg...

This is a throw back to my first half marathon, and my ultimate (larger)goal. For this #bookfitnesschallenge though, my goals are:
Fitness: Walking/Running 6-days a week. Cutting carbs and sugar. Drinking more water.
Reading: 6 books (up from my original goal of 4)

Let‘s do this!

Pickpick

They say don‘t judge a book by its cover...but that‘s how I always pick my books. Something about the colors and design on the book, I‘ve wanted to read it for a long time. It did not disappoint. It was a sweet story about the dysfunction among a family, it was hard not to feel emotionally attached by the end.
