Books Read this Week: 

Finding Felicity by Stacey Kade: It's been a long time since I've read a book by Kade (back in her debut year, which was 2010!!) but now that I've read this one I want to go back and read all of her backlist! Finding Felicity was sweet, heartwarming, and hopeful. It had a college setting, which I LOVED, and it focused more on growing up/moving on than romance, which I also liked. Look out for this one in March!

Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennet: I was planning to read this one in March, but I couldn't hold off any longer. Just like Alex, Approximately, Starry Eyes was laugh-out-loud funny, swoony, and angsty! I could've read about Lennon and Zorie's adventures for days. Plus this book has ME (someone who has SWORN off camping in any style) craving a camping trip. That's when you know Jenn's descriptions are on point!

As She Fades by Abbi Glines: After my wish was granted on Tuesday, I dove right in to this, because when it comes to new Abbi Glines books there is no such thing as waiting. I liked As She Fades. It was an easy, quick read, but it wasn't any Sea Breeze or Rosemary Beach book by a long shot. While I'm okay with that, I wish it had that kind of magic :( 

The Penthouse Pact by Cathryn Fox: After reading some long books this week, a book under 200 pages was a treat. Billionaire books are my guilty pleasure, and this one was definitely enjoyable. But there's definitely been some others I've liked better! 

Your Destination Is on the Left by Lauren Spieller: So up until this point You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone was my favorite 2018 debut, but this one is truly giving it a run for its money! I LOOOVED this book! It's about growing up, letting go, being brave, and standing up for yourself. I loved the art world. I loved the setting. And I especially loved the characters! What I liked the most, however, was the ending. It was bittersweet - not a complete HEA by any means - but it was beyond the perfect fit. Add this one to your TBRs - you don't want to miss it, especially if you love books by Sarah Dessen. 

Life Update: 

I feel like I've been a bad blogger lately. I'm so behind on commenting back, and I haven't been tweeting nearly as much as I would like :( I'm hoping this week to finally get my butt in gear, but sorry to all those who have been commenting! I promise I'll be visiting/commenting back soon. 

Other than that it was a relatively good/quick week! A friend from undergrad visited on Monday and brought Dunkin' with her, which was nice. Their blueberry muffins are my weakness. I got my nails done yesterday, and that was a nice treat too. I went with a darkish purplish color - something different from my normal red - and I'm really liking it.  

How was your week? Read any good books? Let me know in the comments! :) 


  1. Wasn't Starry Eyes the most charming? Jenn Bennett writes some of the swooniest YA contemporaries. I have Your Destination, and I'm excited to read it.
    I hope you enjoy all your new books. Have a good week ahead!

  2. I'm curious about Abbi Glines' books...so thanks for sharing. Enjoy your week!


  3. Glad it was a good week! Now A Major Motion Picture looks good, and Starry Eyes keeps catching my attention with that awesome cover . Plus it just sounds good!

  4. Yay for the giveaway wins!

    Glad it was a good week and you got to see your friend! Blueberry muffins are also delish ;) Yum!
    I always want to paint my nails when I see all the beautiful colours there are to choose from, but I never seem to get round to it! I also don't like it when they start to chip off, so I never really see the point :( But ahhh, the colours are sometimes so pretty! I love the sparkly ones!

    Have a great week, Lauren :)

  5. I still need to read Prince in Disguise, it looks so cute!

    I haven't had a manicure in forever; I usually do them myself, so of course they never look really good!

  6. Glad Starry Eyes and Felicity were good. I have them coming up soonish. Yeah for Prince in Disguise! I love Strohm so much and want everyone to read her books. They are so fun! Congrats on your win. I like the Mansfield series. I hope you love all your new books.

  7. I’m always behind on commenting back. I don’t think I’ll ever catch up, but I keep trying. Have a great week!
