found this odd little copy of a classic at Books-A-Million today. they‘re having a moving sale, so it was cheap.

Birds of California | Katie Cotugno
post image
Pickpick

I‘ve read and enjoyed a couple of Katie Cotugno‘s YA books, so I was excited to read her first adult novel, especially since it has such a beautiful cover! I used this one for my COVER APPEAL bingo square. I really liked reading about Fiona and Sam, who co-starred as teens on the hit tv series, Birds of California. This was the perfect lazy summer read, featuring a sweet, only slightly complicated romance and timely themes. 👍🏻

book 5/22 for 22.

there‘s a ton to like about this office romcom - women in STEM, fun matchmaking shenanigans, diverse families, positive representation of therapy/mental health treatment, and oh yeah, some spicy romance too! I really enjoyed this one!

it doesn‘t exactly fit any of my reading challenge Bingo squares, but it goes toward my number goal! book 4 out of 22 on the year. #romance #romcom #romantsy

Electric Idol | Katee Robert

Mehso-so

checking off the BookTok rec square on my reading challenge with Electric Idol, the second book of the Dark Olympus series. it‘s been a popular rec on BookTok, but I just didn‘t love it. I don‘t think fake relationships are my thing, and Aphrodite‘s anger at Psyche seemed contrived. didn‘t love Eros as the tortured antihero either. I liked Neon Gods much better!

book 3/22 on the year. #readingchallenge #booktok

this was a very very VERY spicy spin on the love story of Persephone and Hades. but there were lots of enjoyable sweet moments, too. I‘m definitely going to read next book in the series, Electric Idol. #romance #romantsy

✅ 2022 FICTION

now I understand why so many people have been telling me to read Colleen Hoover! finished up this audiobook today & loved everything about it. I felt myself drawn into the story immediately, empathizing with all the characters affected by the tragedy at the heart of the story. the audio narration was really well done, especially loved the actress who voiced Kenna. she really tapped into her heartache. #readingchallenge

I reached for this one pretty quickly after blowing through The Good Daughter, but this one didn‘t grab me as much. I didn‘t really like Claire or Lydia, and honestly had a hard time suspending my disbelief in some parts. still, Slaughter is great at her genre!

finished my first book of 2019! I actually started this one in 2018, though, and set it aside a while before picking it up again. it wasn‘t the book...it was me, because I did really like it! Thorne‘s writing style elevates this beyond a basic enemies-to-lovers romcom. if you like a good slow burn, this one‘s for you! 🔥💕 #romantsy

Hate Notes | Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward

a little enemies-to-lovers romance that started off with a lot of promise, but kinda went off the rails at the end. still, it‘s loaded with cute, romantic moments between the main characters, and I enjoyed it more than a couple of other 2018 romances with way more hype. also I totally stalked the cover model on Insta. 😍 ps - this one‘s free on Kindle for Amazon Prime members. #romantsy

Dogearedcopy I read this last night and feel much the same way you do: That it started as one thing and ramped up into something else altogether. I was expecting something more rom-com and unified in tone. I liked it but I‘m struggling with how feel about it overall and how I‘m ultimately going to rate it. 4y
shanebeth @Dogearedcopy it was a weird shift in tone. I still liked it for the most part, though! 4y

a fun thing I got to do this week was see John Stamos with The Beach Boys! he even sang the “Forever” song from Full House. 😂 it was a great concert. The Beach Boys have so many awesome songs. ❤️🎶

robinb Cool! So does he just join them occasionally? I know I‘ve seen him in some of their videos. 4y
shanebeth @robinb I think so, maybe when he isn‘t busy with other stuff. he was onstage with them for pretty much every song, playing drums or guitar! 4y

This ended up being a cute, clever spin on Pretty Woman, but I wasn‘t crazy about some of the writing and actually came pretty close to abandoning it at one point. I liked the way the characters developed, especially Michael, and I adored his family. It wasn‘t quite what I was expecting, but I liked it! #botm

shanebeth @Whimsical.Curiosity of the ones I‘ve read, my top three would probably be The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Final Girls, and Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine. 😁 4y
Whimsical.Curiosity Oh fun! Eleanor is def on my list. I just got Calypso in June. 4y

I found my sophomore English writing journal (circa 1993), and it had lots of commentary about the books we read in class, like this note about Watership Down. I wasn‘t as kind to others, like Silas Marner. 😂 #tbt

Bostonmomx2 I had an actual “reading” class in seventh and eighth grades. I wish I still had even just the reading list but would give anything to have the journal we kept. I know we had to read some stuff in high school but by then I hated anything I was told to do lol 4y
