The Weekly Recap (105)

Posted October 1, 2018 by Rowena in Features | 2 Comments

Happy first day of October, everyone! Can you believe that there are only three more months left in the year 2018? On one hand, I’m ready to say goodbye to this messed up year but on the other hand, I’m not ready for a new year. Not yet anyway. Maybe I’ll be ready in December. Fingers crossed.

Anyway, this last week was for celebrating baby Jax’s first birthday. It was also for celebrating my North High Saxons defeating Jax’s Grandpa’s Torrance High Tartars. Haha. So as you can see, it was a damn good day in my North High household. Haha, it gave us loads to discuss at Jax’s birthday party. 🙂 Jax’s birthday party was adorable. It was a Lumberjack party theme and Jax was dressed up as Lumberjax. It was too cute!

Brenna and Makenna also had their first pre-season tournament for their school basketball team in Ventura and that is about an hour away from us, I wasn’t feeling good so my brother Pete went to support them. Their team isn’t that good this year but Makenna’s Mom said they’re not as bad as we were thinking. Pete told them that depending on how well they play, will determine where they ate afterward, when he texted me during the game, he said, “It’s looking like we’re eating at McDonalds” so they sucked right alongside their teammates. SMH. It’s just pre-season so hopefully, they’ll get better.

Speaking of pre-season, NBA BASKETALL is back which means that Lebron James played in his first game as a Laker and I was super stoked about that. We lost to the dratted Denver Nuggets but I saw a lot of good stuff from our team so I’m hopeful that they’ll iron out all of the kinks soon and that we’ll be a true contending team soon. Fingers crossed. Today at 1pm, I’ll be glued to my work TV watching as my Dodgers battle the Colorado Rockies (boo!) for the National League Division title. I’m sending all of my good vibes to our boys in blue, especially Walker Buehller who will be pitching today. I hope our bats show up. GO BLUE!

Now, onto the books…

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh continues her Hard Play series with a sweet, sexy romance featuring big, fat, OTT weddings, a meddling grandma, and a too-serious hero who needs to be unbuttoned…

Nayna Sharma agreed to an arranged marriage in the hope it would heal the fractures in her beloved family… only to realize too late that a traditional marriage is her personal nightmare. Panicked, she throws caution to the winds, puts on the tiniest dress she can find, and ends up in the arms of a tall, rough-edged hunk of a man who has abs of steel—and who she manages to mortally insult between one kiss and the next.

Abandoned as a child, then adopted into a loving family, Raj Sen believes in tradition, in continuity. Some might call him stiff and old-fashioned, but he knows what he wants—and it’s a life defined by rules… yet he can’t stop thinking about the infuriating and sexy woman who kissed him in the moonlight then disappeared. When his parents spring an introduction on him, the last woman he expects is her. Beautiful. Maddening. A rulebreaker in the making.

He’s all wrong for her. She’s all wrong for him. And love is about to make rebels of them both.

I started this book on Friday but never actually got any reading done since I’m still on Chapter 2 and it’s Monday. I didn’t read at all this weekend but I’m hoping to get some reading in today and knock this one out. Wish me luck!
