In between moving our things and dealing with my everyday tasks (laundry, ironing, etc) I was able to read 3 books. Yes, with all the craziness going on, I still managed to squeeze in some reading time and that made me really happy.
It Had to Be You by Ellie Adams|496 pages-At first I thought the story will focus on Lizzy's break up and how she cope with it but instead I was taken on a journey through good friendships, family, and new love that I thought would never happen because it took half the book before Elliot were formally introduced to the story. Honestly, I got bored waiting for them to meet and I almost abandon it but, I cant move on not knowing how the ending went so I continue reading. It was worth it. There were many laughs out loud moments and the characters were believable. Although I had a slight issue with the meeting of Elliot and Lizzy, in the end I truly enjoy reading it.
The Magnolia Affair by T.A. Foster|208 pages-I could not put this book down after being sucked in by the first few sentences. The story was so well written and had so many twists and turns it was so hard to figure which way the story go.This book kept me guessing and I love it. It was a good read and I highly recommend it.
Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin by Kathy Griffin|348 pages-I know, not everyone likes Kathy Griffin and I totally understand but those who likes her (like me) would totally enjoy reading her life story and how she able to deal with career struggles and personal dramas. A glimpse of the real Kathy. She shared many intimate and touching moments about her family. The chapter about her brother Kenny broke my heart. That chapter is moving and honest, and at times, hard to read. It is a well-written book filled with humor and honesty. A really good read for me.
Do you have any recommendation for me? I'm currently reading Construct A Couple by Talli Roland
