I love book 1, like book 2 and honestly suffer through book 3. Shame she couldn't have put the thought and effort into 2 and 3 (especially 3) that she did into 1. I know they're supposed to be easy beach reads but, come on. I won't say any more so I don't have to set a spoiler alert. 🙄

Quirkybookworm I have book 3. I did not know it was a series until I started to read it. I had to set it aside so I can get the first 2 when I get around to it!😳 14mo
tammysue I read book 3 then went back and read the others. I own but haven‘t read Lowcountry Wedding yet. I enjoyed this series but absolutely love The Beach House series!! Still working on getting them all read. 👍🏻🐢 14mo
jbhops @whatshesreadingnow I haven't read any of her other books! 14mo
jbhops @Quirkybookworm I've done that before. I feel like while she does a brief synopsis, you definitely need to read the others first. 14mo
tammysue If you get a chance try The Beach House. I enjoyed The Beach House series way more. 14mo

This summer has been full of surprises and vacations. I've traveled a lot for work and for play with the family. And in all that traveling time, I have read. A LOT. We drove to Florida from NC to visit the mouse and we flew cross country to visit my brother and his family. It's been an amazing adventure for our family of 3, as we wait to become a family of 4. My list of books won't fit in here so, to the comments we go.

Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life | Jenna Bush Hager, Barbara Pierce Bush

1. Driving. Always driving.
2. Overdrive (library)
3. Sped up. Not a lot but enough so it's not a slog.
4. My favorite narrator is typically the author.
5. Nope. 😂

The tagged book is my current audio book.

Jess7 Yay! #overdrive and #libraries! I absolutely love listening to #audiobooks using overdrive! I simply refuse to purchase an audiobook bc it‘s just one of those things I‘ll never re listen to and overdrive is a great solution! 2y
Jess7 I also have listened to a free #audible audiobook from Kaye (thanks @Kaye for sharing again by the way) but having now used both - I do very much prefer the way overdrive‘s set up to audible. 2y
Kaye @jess7 no problem on the free book. I don‘t mind a bit. The price of audiobooks is a killer for me too but I do relisten a lot. Let‘s just say I need to keep my brain occupied continually so audiobooks help that a lot. I know it‘s cheaper from the library so it‘s a constant battle for me of whether to keep an Audible account or not. I change my mind a lot about it. 🤔 2y
jbhops @Jess7 yeah, I have a hard time buying audio books. I also will never listen to the same one again. Overdrive is so easy! 2y
jbhops @Kaye I always think an audible account would be helpful when nothing is available that I want to listen to. I just love having something available if I'm bored while driving. If 2y

This book is fascinating. My daughter's therapist recommended it to us and then I found it at the resource library at our church. I am not a big self-help book fan but this one, while there are a few eye-rolling moments, is on the whole a very enlightening book. I'd recommend all parents read it. Even if you just scan the pictures, they just make sense.

#husbandsoflitsy update: he decided to move on to another audio book. Apparently this one was a bit busy for a first audio book. Too much jumping around and the narrator wasn't super easy to understand. Any suggestions for another audio book for him? I am thinking a Michael Connelly book?

Gratuitous picture of our North Carolina snowman. We don't get snow like this very often so we are so excited!
