I love finding little treasures in our library system‘s used bookstores. I‘ve had and loved the first book Vintage Vavoom for years. I spotted this hardback companion and paid $2. Score!! ❤️

Read this in about an hour. Short but sweet. Her little nuggets of housekeeping wisdom specifically for the season gets you totally in the mood for the joys of autumn. Looking forward to cooler temps and fire in the fireplace.

Oh wow...I shed a few tears on this one. I‘m thinking this one is my favorite of the series so far.

Moonlight Cove | Sherryl Woods

The main character, Jess, was kinda annoying in the previous books, that‘s why it took so long for me to pick this book up and read it. It was a good story but she got annoying again when using her issues as a way to avoid the man who‘s been in love with her for years. The books are enjoyable because of the big family being close knit and supportive. It‘s like throwing on a comfy blanket when the family enters a scene. On to the next book...

I‘be been wanting something lighter to read so I thought it was a good reason to continue the Chesapeake Shores series. (I really don‘t like the TV show based on the books.)

I‘m on page 36 but I‘m bailing. If you REALLY love fashion, this book could be for you. I loved the idea of finding out how we got from how women dressed so well less than a century ago to our leggings and t-shirt culture we have today. The chapters are incredibly long and this book reads like a textbook, IMO, and I‘m not in school anymore so nope....moving on.

Whoa baby...loved this series about the Riggs brothers. Hot bad boys getting the girl and redemption. Reading them in order is a must but the last book‘s ending doesn‘t disappoint, as it‘s possibly the best one, IMO.

My first Peter Mayle book. This is a book of essays/articles he wrote exploring the lifestyle of the rich. He pokes fun at them, yet he also relates to them. I found the book interesting and had a few LOL moments too.

22 Britannia Road: A Novel | Amanda Hodgkinson

Pickpick

War is so hard on people, families and marriages. Secrets on both sides. This was a fascinating read about a mother‘s love for her son, and a husband‘s determination to put the war behind him and his family, but they will have to be honest with each other about what happened while separated during the war to move forward.

I picked up some books I put on hold for my kids, but I found this on the bookshelf at the library last night. It‘s been on my Goodreads TBR list for a while so I checked it out and started it when I got home. So far it‘s a very interesting read.

1. My BFF Angie. Met in 7th grade. We are turning 46 this year so we are most certainly in the “ride or die” category for friendship.
2. I‘ve seen many pretty sunsets in many different locales.
3. Old Spice. It reminds me of my grandpa who died when I was 12. I remember him kissing my cheek smelling like Old Spice and scratching me with his 5 o‘clock shadow.
4. Dirty English—a free kindle read I downloaded recently.

Eggs Great memories 💗🤗 4mo

I‘ve been in such a reading slump lately. I‘ve started about 10 books in the last month but haven‘t moved past the 1st chapter before getting distracted or not feeling interested enough to go on. I‘m determined to finish this book I bought along with my kids homeschooling curriculum. This is a book I plan to pass on to my hubs when I‘m done, so I‘ve got extra motivation now.

1. My morning coffee, every morning.
2. I‘m horribly out of the loop when it comes to music.
3. A big-ass perm that was all the rage in the late 80‘s/early 90‘s.
4. Always have to have a blanket on me, no matter how hot it is.
5. Top: the coffee mug my mom bought me. Bottom: my kids bonding at the library.

Our area (master planned community) has two libraries, but we only go to one because it‘s down the street from our house. I met up with a friend and her little boy today at the other library because her son loves it. Holy Moly...the kids area is so fabulous! The play area lets the kids explore and create, plus find so many fabulous books! We played 3 hours and checked out a large stack of 📚. The only thing missing is a ☕️bar for the parents! 🤪

1. Many years ago, at a job where I worked with all women, we all started reading books written by Graham Masterton (when he wrote about sex and relationships) and other similar authors.
2. Yes, read many.
3. Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus by John Grey. Yes, it helped me understand the differences with the way men and women approach relationships.
4. 2 years? Dealing with new babies.
