Week in Books (43)

Week in Books v2

The highlight of this week is surprisingly not Thanksgiving. It’s the return of my nephew, RJ. RJ served a two year mission for our Church and he has returned with honor. I’m so glad to see that he’s happy, healthy and safely home. He’s such a good kid, always has a smile on his face and he’s been through so much in his short life so I’m happy to see him happy. I’m just bummed that we couldn’t make it out to Colorado to see him. We’ll make up for that in January when he comes to California for Chach’s farewell.


I hope that everyone had a great weekend, cause I did and I’m ready to get back to it all this week.

Managed (VIP #2) by Kristen Callihan.

It started off as a battle of wits. Me: the ordinary girl with a big mouth against Him: the sexy bastard with a big…ego.

I thought I’d hit the jackpot when I was upgraded to first class on my flight to London.

That is until HE sat next to me. Gabriel Scott: handsome as sin, cold as ice. Nothing and no one gets to him. Ever. He’s a legend in his own right, the manager of the biggest rock band in the world, and an arrogant ass who looks down his nose at me.

I thought I’d give him hell for one, long flight. I didn’t expect to like him. I didn’t expect to want him. But the biggest surprise? He wants me too. Only in a way I didn’t see coming.

If I accept his proposal, I leave myself open to falling for the one man I can’t manage. But I’m tempted to say yes. Because the real man beneath those perfect suits and that cool façade just might be the best thing that’s ever happened to me. And I just might be the only one who can melt the ice around his heart.

Let the battle begin…

I didn’t read all of the books like I planned over my long weekend but I did manage to finish Idol by Kristen Callihan and Size Matters by Alison Bliss. Both books were good but not books that I would put on my favorites shelf. They both get 3.5 out of 5 stars.

11/24: Happy Thanksgiving!

I really need to get my act together and start writing up some posts. I’m just lazy but this week is the week that I really get my shit together. For reals.

New to My Bookshelves

None. I’ve been distracted with all things planners these days. I haven’t been really looking at the books coming out, books that I want to read and all that. Surprising but I’m completely addicted to all things Happy Planner and Bullet Journals. I’m going to be doing both next year, now that I’ve got the hang of how I want to do these things. I’m excited!

    Hi, Rowena! I’m glad your nephew; and this photo is so touching. I hope you’ll be able to see him in January.

    So you caught this “Bullet Journals” bug too? Lol.

      Hi Ksenia! Thanks and yes! I’ve got it really bad. I watch hours of YouTube videos for inspiration on how I want to do my own book bullet journal for next year. I’m so ready!
