Recently I borrowed I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid through my local library. I couldn’t put it down. I started this book not knowing anything about it and I highly recommend you do the same. Just now I noticed it is on sale for Kindle at 1.99! Snatch this up!
I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid
(link will take you to Amazon)
It’s been a while since we’ve added to Little One’s library collection. We took advantage of the last Scholastic book order of the year to load up on some books for the summer!
Thank you local library! I am so surprised at how quickly I was able to get a copy of this book, as I was something like 50th on the waitlist earlier in the week.
We are big bookworms in this house. My kids devour books (like their mom!) and I thought it would be fun to share what we’ve been reading this past week.
Little One’s favorites this week
She loves theDuck & Goose series, we have a few of those. The most recent book we’ve read is Giraffes Can’t Dance, a really great story about finding your own rhythm in life!
My oldest is obsessed with all things Titanic as of late
We really enjoyed Can You Survive The Titanic? It is a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style book with multiple different endings depending on which path you choose. Though it’s a surprisingly quick read, after he finished going through the different story paths he was inspired to write his own Can You Survive stories!
What are your kids currently reading?
I am so happy to finally have a copy of Thi Bui’s illustrated memoir, The Best We Could Do. I can’t wait to dig into this beautiful book!
I love this gorgeous cover!! After All is expected to be released later this month!
Emmett Hill is the perfect gentleman.
At least that’s what his PR team wants the world to think.
Tall, handsome, and wickedly charming, Emmett is in the midst of a career comeback, having landed the role of a villain in a popular TV show. The only problem is, Emmett has come a long way from the “nice guy” characters he used to play and his old squeaky clean image is quickly being tarnished by bar fights, womanizing and bad boy behaviour. Considering he’s two years shy of forty, it’s an act he needs to drop. And fast.
Enter Alyssa Martin.
At twenty-eight, Alyssa is tired and ready for a change. Her job as office manager has grown stagnant and unfulfilling, while she’s become continuously frustrated with Vancouver’s lackluster dating scene, always searching for Mr. Right in a city of Mr. Wrongs.
When Emmett and Alyssa’s paths cross at a mutual friend’s wedding, their chemistry is off-the-charts hot, culminating in a steamy one-night stand.
What neither expected was for the media catch wind of their coupling – and run with it.
Now Emmett has to convince Alyssa to date him for the sake of his image. Her curvy, cute and “normal” persona is just the ticket to smoothing out his reputation, while Emmett provides Alyssa with the excitement and change her life has been lacking.
The only problem is, the two fight like cats and dogs outside of the bedroom.
And considering their arrangement is just for show, they shouldn’t be in the bedroom with each other anyway.
Try telling them that.
Kindle, Kobo & paperback: live release
I am watching the new series and I read this and it is perfection! I love Bryan Fuller (still waiting for Hannibal to come back)!
I finished this book on Audible (via Kindle Unlimited– Claire Danes narrates and she is perfection!) the other day and now I’ve been binging the series on Hulu. It stays true to the essence of the book. I would highly recommend! Elizabeth Moss is amazing and I can’t wait for the next episode.
“I should probably warn you,” he says to me, placing quick kisses down my jaw, his stubble razing my skin, “that I can be bossy.”
This is my kind of contemporary romance. The kind that makes me swoon, blush and lust and check mark Will McAllister under my list of book boyfriends.
Jackie Phillips has not had an easy life. She’s a twenty-something year old single mother and all she wants is a fresh start. What she doesn’t expect is meeting Will. Will McAllister is seemingly too good to be true, if it wasn’t for the fact that he is 16 years her senior, her new boss and her father’s best friend.
I loved every page of this book. I love the chemistry between Jackie and Will. Will is perfection and you know, sometimes we just need the good guy to get the girl!
“Where there’s a Will there’s a way.”
You guys, I’ve never read Harry Potter before! Wish me luck! (Do I need luck??)
