W… W… W… Wednesday, hosted by Taking on a World of Worlds is a weekly meme showcasing what you just finished reading, what you are currently reading, and what you plan to start reading next. Except I’m changing it up a bit, since I can never plan what I’m reading next (moody reader). Instead I’m going to talk about a book I’ve recently added to my TBR that I’m excited about!

what i recently finished reading

   

I always enjoy RaeAnne Thayne‘s books and this one is no exception. Towards the end, the drama did drag a little longer than I would’ve liked, but overall it was a great read.

I will post a proper review for All Your Perfects during the blog tour. I will say that it was an extremely emotional read, that I couldn’t put it down, that it’s classic Colleen (angsty romance), and that it is perfection. It may even be my new favorite of her books, or at least high on the list.

 what i’m currently reading

I put Obsidio on hold to read the new CoHo book. Planning to pick it back up this week.

what i have recently added to my tbr

I love Sarah Morgan’s books, and I believe this is her first adult contemporary novel. Looking forward to reading it!

{Happy Monday} 3-26-18

Just a fun way to share my thoughts and recap our weekend shenanigans.

Spring Break. We’re officially on Spring Break, and it was nice to sleep in a little this morning and not have to wake Sunnie up early to get ready for school. I have to work today and Wednesday in the office, so Sunnie will be with my parents. I am planning on taking her to the movies on Thursday (she wants to see Sherlock Gnomes), and she wants to have a friend over to play on Friday. Unfortunately, the weather this week is not going to cooperate enough to do anything fun outside.

Happy Bookworm. I’ve been extremely fortunate enough to participate in every Colleen Hoover blog tour, but every time I sign up, I’m always worried this will be the one time they turn me down. Then I got the email on Friday night with the Netgalley copy of All Your Perfects, and I was so excited! Of course I had to start it immediately…there’s no way I can have a new CoHo book on my Kindle and not read it. I am over halfway through, and it’s classic Colleen – full of angst and heartache, and it’s SO GOOD.

Grateful For. A flexible job that allows me to be home with Sunnie most of this week. I know my parents would love to watch her every day, but I am grateful that I can arrange my schedule to be able to spend a few days at home.

Enjoyed. It was a busy, but fun weekend. We went out for dinner on Friday night and tried a new Mexican restaurant. Saturday was busy with dance practice, running errands and catching up on laundry. Sunday I was able to get in a long run in the morning before going to my best friend’s house to celebrate her daughter’s birthday. When we got home from the party, we colored Easter eggs and spent the rest of the evening relaxing.

Looking Forward To. Spending some extra time with Sunnie this week. And getting to sleep in later all week. 😉

{Friday Five} 3-23-18

It’s been awhile since I did a Friday post, and I’m trying to get back some of my blogging mojo. My friend Stephanie shared her March Joys today, and I’ve decided to join in the fun.

Here are 5 things giving me joy this month.

 

{Dance}

We’re done with 2 out of 3 dance competitions for the year. I love seeing Sunnie on stage doing what she does best. Dancing and throwing out the sass. 😉

These are from her two hip hop routines, which are her favorite routines (mine too).

{Minimalism}

I’ve always been a bit of a minimalist, with my OCD and aversion to clutter. I go through my house at least twice a year and throw stuff out. Lately I’ve been really fascinated with reading blogs and books on the subject. Two books I’ve recently purchased – The More of Less and The Year of Less. I also did a complete clear-out of my closet and got rid of a lot of clothes, putting myself on a clothes buying ban for awhile. I’m determined to mix and match what I have and NOT buy anything new. Once I cleared out my side of the closet, my husband got a lot more space (used to be about 90/10 and now it’s more like 60/40, lol).

 

{running anniversary}

This month I celebrated 3 years since I started running. I love it, and I hope that never changes. 37 days away from my first half marathon. Every weekend I’m adding mileage to my runs and running longer than I’ve ever run before.

 

 {Books worth buying}

When you read a book on your Kindle, and it’s so inspiring that you buy the hardback copy too.

 

{Grateful}

I’m looking forward to spring break next week, spending more time with Sunnie, and hopefully having warmer temperatures. Even though I’ve been struggling with some winter blues and a serious lack of Vitamin D, I have so much to be grateful for…

a clean house, sunshine coming through the window of my favorite room, my healthy and happy family, a job that I love, the fact that today is Friday and we’re going out for Mexican food tonight 🙂

 

Hope you all have a great weekend, and thanks for reading!

what i recently finished reading

    

I couldn’t decide what I was in the mood to read, and I needed to pick something on my Kindle to read while I run. I started this one just to see if it would hook me, and did it ever! I was so invested in the story that I couldn’t put it down and found myself sneaking chapters all weekend until I finished it. It wasn’t my favorite of her books, but it was still very good.

 

 

 what i’m currently reading

 

I’m reading Obsidio while also listening to the Audible version at the same time. One of the book bloggers I follow recommended it, and it does make the experience even better. Going to take me awhile to get through it…it’s a long one.

I have loved every RaeAnne Thayne book I’ve read, and I’ve been in the mood for a good romance. So far this one is really good.

 

 

what i have recently added to my tbr

I loved Jasinda Wilder‘s first two books in the You Can Do It series, so I’m excited to read this one, too. She’s incredibly inspiring and has some wonderful tips and recommendations.

{Top Ten Tuesday} Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books on My Spring TBR.

We all know I won’t stick to this list, but I wanted to share some books I’m excited to read, and will hopefully read them soon.

 

    

I have only recently added How to Walk Away to my list after seeing another author post about it on social media. It sounds really good.

I enjoyed Riley Sager‘s debut, so I’m looking forward to this one.

I’m a huge Laura Griffin fan and am really excited to have a copy of her new book. This is one I will definitely make time to read asap.

Jasinda Wilder is really inspirational, and I’ve loved the first two books in this series.

I’m determined to read one of my Amazon First books, and this is the one! Also – perfect spring cover.

    

Although I wasn’t a big fan of this duo’s last book, I’m going to try them again, because Girls’ Night Out sounds really good.

I’ve only read one Kristin Harmel book and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to this one.

Ruth Ware‘s books are hit or miss, but I’m hearing this one is excellent.

I’ve had Paper Ghosts on my Kindle for awhile and can’t believe I haven’t read it, yet. I loved the authors last book, and I’m determined to read this one soon.

It’s been years since I read a book by Barbara Delinsky. She has written some of my favorite books of all time.

I signed up for the blog tour and fingers crossed I get to read this baby before it’s release, because it’s COLLEEN HOOVER. Most highly anticipated book for the rest of the year.

 

 

What books are you excited to read this spring?
