It's that time again! Time for some entertainment reviews. I must tell you that I have such a hard time remembering what a book is about-even if I LOVE the book-the second I turn the last page I can't remember a thing. I've now started adding some notes on my phone every time I get finished just so I don't forget. Let's see if that helps. :)
This is what I've been reading...
Shay gave me this book to read right before we moved last year. It got packed up and forgotten about until just recently. I must tell you I was a bit intimidated because it's pretty big. Am I the only one who feels like big books are such a commitment? I usually reach for the thinner ones first. :) This book was about an average American girl who falls in love with the Prince, Great Britain's future king. Sounds easy enough, right? WRONG! This novel details all the hoops you have to jump through when dating a member of the royal family. It was a cute girly book that I highly recommend to you guys!
Who knew Katie Lee wrote novels, right? This is her novel debut about a divorced woman who needs to do a little soul searching and ends up learning a lot about herself through surfing. A super cute little beach read for sure!
I'm a big Boo Mama fan. Do you guys read her blog? You should. :) Anyway, this is her third book and it's a little different from the first. I REALLY enjoyed this one. Her first two were more funny stories she's recollecting about her childhood or life. This one is all about how women need each other-no matter the age we can learn something from one another. She finds correlations between women in the Bible and her real-life funny stories and it's just good. Sometimes with Christian books I have a hard time picking up the book and reading all the way through. I want to stay focused so I almost need to read one or two chapters and take a break. This book is not like that. I could have read from beginning to end in one setting. It's my favorite Sophie Hudson book to date. Check it out!
I've read one or two other Elin Hilderbrand novels, but this one was GOOD. I was hooked early on. Three friends have a standing tradition of going to the beach, having a late night swim, and enjoying good food/drinks. This time they begin sharing secrets. One girl jumps in the water and never surfaces. The town of Nantucket is on the search for her and I was in suspense the ENTIRE book. If you're a chick-lit fan, this is a good one!
I know I'm the odd girl out when I say it, but I feel like I must...this just wasn't my favorite book. It took forever (in my opinion) for the plot to thicken so to speak. Again, I know most of you will not agree, but I just needed something to happen sooner. I'll definitely watch the movie and let you know what I think about it. This novel is about a girl who goes to work for a man who due to a motorcycle accident has lost his will to live. The relationship blossoms and she does everything she can to get him to enjoy life. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll stop there. :)
I really enjoyed this Hilderbrand novel as well! In this book, Meredith has just lost everything-connections to her family, her home, her marriage, etc. She leans on a long lost friend to find her way back to true happiness. It's suspenseful and a great beach read. I didn't want to put it down!
What I'm Currently Reading...
I can't wait to share what I think about these two books.
What I'm Watching...
It is GREAT television time for me! :)
Big Brother-oh my goodness! I LOVE that show! Who are your favorites? I'm still #teamjames and #teamfrank. Frank is GOOD at this game. I'm enjoying Mama Day WAY more this time around than last season. For the newbies, I don't have a favorite just yet. I'm on the fence.
Real Housewives of Orange County-whoa! I'm so ready to see this entire season play out!
The Bachelorette-Can't wait to see hometowns! They have to be coming up soon, right? Hometown dates might be my favorite week of the entire season.
Real Housewives of New York-these ladies just might be my faves. :)
Your turn...what are YOU watching and reading right now?? I always love book recommendations. Please pass it my way if you have something! Thank you!
