• I know people aren’t typically a fan on Sundays: it’s the end of the weekend and just hours away from Monday and the start of a new work week. ..but me? They’re my favorite day. Yesterday I shared a photo of my current read, but more importantly, how much I was loving that particular Sunday. My siblings and I all found our way back home and in between catching frogs with my nieces (check out my IG story – those frogs were TINY!) and trying to be the first to spot a rainbow (gotta love PA weather and it’s bright sunshine that turns into a random storm and back again in the span of five minutes), yesterday was just perfect.
• This BLT pasta salad (with avocado, obviously) looks delicious!
• MISSED SOMETHING THIS WEEK? I shared a new edition of recently added, highlighting 3 upcoming releases (a murder mystery by one of biggest names in romance, a YA retelling, and a historical romance) and an older title (lately I’ve been on a seriously old school historical romance kick!)
I also shared a giveaway for Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage! If this isn’t one of the buzziest books of the summer, I don’t know what is! I’m giving away three ARCs of this one – head over for the post for a chance to win! Giveaway ends July 1.
Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris
Twelve years ago, Layla disappeared one night while she and Finn were on a trip in France. Though Finn gave his statement to the police (leaving out the complete truth), his girlfriend was gone. Now over a decade later, Finn has moved on. …then he receives a phone call from a detective. An old neighbor of Finn’s claims to have just seen Layla. 2016 was such a fantastic year of books for me and Behind Closed Doors was one of my top reads – even earning 5 stars (which you know is practically unheard of for me!) Then last year’s follow-up, The Breakdown, was one of my biggest disappointments. So I was a little hesitant about this one to say the least, but I’m currently reading it and really enjoying it! Thank you, St. Martin’s Press!
The Real Deal by Lauren Blakely
This is one of my most anticipated summer releases and I was SO excited to see it at my door! I absolutely love the pretend relationship trope, in this case April’s going home for a family reunion and can’t take one more comment about her (non-existent) love life. Theo has made a nice chunk of change playing a boyfriend-for-hire and this new gig will finally free him of his debts – and the past he’s been running from. This is going to be the perfect summer read! Thank you, St. Martin’s Griffin!)
