Howdy friends! Welcome to this weeks #TellMeAboutItTuesday!
This week has been so busy and quite draining for me but positive nonetheless! Here’s a pic of my floofy best friends to get things started!
This weeks tell all!
Soo this week I don’t have much to tell so I guess I’ll tell you about my recent book haul. Now, they haul wasn’t intentional. A strong wind blew and before I knew it I was in the fiction section with some books in my arms. A tragedy, for sure.
Soo… we all know my book buying is probably becoming an addiction (I blame Bookstagram and BookTok tbh, full of bad influences 😏)
One Last Stop by Casey McQuinston
What drew me to the book: this one has been on my radar for a while! I love diverse reads and this one comes highly recommended by a friend! Plus the cover is 🤌🏻🤌🏻🤌🏻
Bridgerton: The Duke and I by Julia Quinn
What drew me to the book: we’re reading this one for our first book club pick at work! So excited 😆
Sister Starlight by Jane Green
What drew me to the book: a promotional copy gifted to me by the publisher (thank you and love you Harper 360!)
Dangerous Women by Hope Adams
What drew me to the book: based on a true story? Fab! Set on a ship!? Where do I sign up? Historical? Let’s goooo! So this was an impulse buy. The cover drew my eye and when I saw it was signed and had stunning end papers.. I was sold.
Without Merit by Colleen Hoover
“Not every mistake deserves a consequence. Sometimes the only thing it deserves is forgiveness.”
The Voss family is anything but normal. They live in a repurposed church, newly baptized Dollar Voss. The once cancer-stricken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother’s former nurse, the little half-brother isn’t allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Then, there’s Merit.
Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn’t earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. While browsing the local antiques shop for her next trophy, she finds Sagan. His wit and unapologetic idealism disarm and spark renewed life into her—until she discovers that he’s completely unavailable. Merit retreats deeper into herself, watching her family from the sidelines, when she learns a secret that no trophy in the world can fix.
Fed up with the lies, Merit decides to shatter the happy family illusion that she’s never been a part of before leaving them behind for good. When her escape plan fails, Merit is forced to deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth and losing the one boy she loves.
Poignant and powerful, Without Merit explores the layers of lies that tie a family together and the power of love and truth.
What drew me to the book: I recently decided to give in to the hype and read Colleen Hoovers books. I recently read Confess and really enjoyed it so I have high hopes!
Confessions of an Alleged Good Girl by Joya Goffney
Monique is a preacher’s daughter who detests the impossible rules of her religion. Everyone expects her to wait until marriage, so she has no one to turn to when she discovers that she physically can’t have sex.
After two years of trying and failing, her boyfriend breaks up with her. To win him back, Monique teams up with straight-laced church girl Sasha—who is surprisingly knowledgeable about Monique’s condition—as well as Reggie, the misunderstood bad boy who always makes a ruckus at church, and together they embark upon a top-secret search for the cure.
While on their quest, Monique discovers the value of a true friend and the wonders of a love that accepts her for who she is. Despite everyone’s opinions about her virtue, she learns to live for herself, inspiring us all to reclaim our bodies and unapologetically love ourselves.
