Overall, a pick for me but definitely not my favorite Unger book. The pacing was up and down for me but ultimately had enough twist to keep me interested.

Loved this book for #AuthorAMonth. I‘ve read other books by Taylor Jenkins Reid so she‘s not a new to me author. I am enjoying reading more books by her.

Ok, Misty & Renee… I posted a selfie with Sami but forgot to tell you the best thing from the last 5 years. So, here‘s a selfie with Derek.
The best thing to happen in the last five years…
my kids finding and following their passions & becoming their own person. 💙

#SundayFunday @ozma.of.oz

Not anymore. I used to finish everything I started reading. Then I accepted it‘s ok to stop if a book just isn‘t right for me. There are too many great books out there for me to waste time on one not resonating with me. Sometimes I hibernate them for later & sometimes it‘s just a bail.
If I don‘t care about any of the characters or the story I‘m out.

TheBookgeekFrau You captured my thoughts on this so well that all I can say is: Same here 😁 6d
ozma.of.oz Agreed! I‘ve found some favorite books by revisiting something I previously bailed on because I wasn‘t in the right place to appreciate it. Thank you for answering! 6d

I like to deal with things quickly & head on, so things I can‘t control (but affect my family, friends or me) stress me. Reading, crocheting & talking with my husband calms me.

Joy. Love. Being unapologetically, genuinely, 100% you - don‘t worry about how you look, what others say - just love being you 💙
