Week in Review (89)

Posted June 11, 2018 by Rowena in Books, Features | 2 Comments

Last week was for helping my bestie get her centerpieces ready for her grandmother’s 85th birthday party that was on Saturday and I’m really happy with our creations. That kept me busy for most of the week but your girl still managed to get some reading in so woohoo for me.

The party was a lot of fun and I was busy from the time I arrived at the party to after the party since I stayed behind to help the family clean up. I was a lazy cow all day yesterday because my feet hurt from being on them all day and night on Saturday but it’s all good cause that meant more reading.

Brenna and Kenna left for Utah for two weeks with the Colorado crew that came down for Therese’s grandma’s birthday party. It was a really quick turnaround trip for them. They came in late Friday night and left early Sunday morning. We had breakfast at the new Island Flavor restaurant that opened on Friday and enjoyed the heck out of our meal there…and then they turned around and went home. It’s all good though because they’ll be back in a couple of weeks when Chach gets back from her mission.

Now, onto the books…

Megan Harper is the girl before. All her exes find their one true love right after dating her. It’s not a curse or anything, it’s just the way things are, and Megan refuses to waste time feeling sorry for herself. Instead, she focuses on pursuing her next fling, directing theatre, and fulfilling her dream school’s acting requirement in the smallest role possible.

But her plans quickly crumble when she’s cast as none other than Juliet–yes, that Juliet–in her high school’s production. It’s a nightmare. No–a disaster. Megan’s not an actress and she’s certainly not a Juliet. Then she meets Owen Okita, an aspiring playwright who agrees to help Megan catch the eye of a sexy stagehand in exchange for help writing his new script.

Between rehearsals and contending with her divided family, Megan begins to notice Owen–thoughtful, unconventional, and utterly unlike her exes, and wonders: shouldn’t a girl get to play the lead in her own love story?

I meant to start this book last week but when I sat down to read, the book wasn’t on my kindle like I thought so I started another book instead. I’m about one chapter into this book right now but I’m hopeful that it will be good.

What I Read

Burn for You (Slow Burn #1) by J.T. Geissinger | 4 out of 5
I Flipping Love You (Shacking Up #3) by Helena Hunting | 4 out of 5
I Think I Love You (Oxford #5) by Lauren Layne | 4.5 out of 5
The One You Can’t Forget (The Ones Who Got Away #2) by Roni Loren | 4 out of 5

I enjoyed every book that I read last week but hands down, my favorite was I Think I Love You by Lauren Layne. Hunter and Brit were a fantastic couple and I ate their story up with each passing page. So stinkin’ good.
