The Kiss Quotient
3 Stars ⭐⭐⭐ I went into "The Kiss Quotient" with reasonably high expectations. A lot of people with similar bookish tastes to mine seemed to really like it. I think it was perfectly fine. It was cute enough, but it was too much of a straight romance for me. I don't consider myself modest in any way, but there was just a bit too much graphic sex for me. It's a fairly fun, very fast read that I think a lot of people would enjoy. It just wasn't for me. 🤷‍♀️ How about you? Did you read it and like it?

I finished the Handmaids Tale the other day, FINALLY oh my gosh I’m horrified by my slowness, but I don’t know what to pick up next! So far it’s a toss up between these two... any recommendations? Between these or any other books? 💕

(Book was sent to me for free!) We're nearing the end of #src2018, and it's been such a fantastic summer of reading. I love that I've been exposed to a mix of well known and new to me authors- it's definitely been a great way to broaden my reading life. I hope you've had a great summer of reading, too! Are you excited for fall or dreading the end?

Though her mind is still sharp, Elizabeth's eyes have failed. No longer able to linger over her beloved books or gaze at the paintings that move her spirit, she fills the void with music and memories of her family—a past that suddenly becomes all too present when her late father's journals are found amid the ruins of an old shipwreck.
.
.
With the help of Morgan, a delinquent teenage performing community service, Elizabeth goes through the diaries, a journey through time that brings the two women closer together. Entry by entry, these unlikely friends are drawn deep into a world far removed from their own—to Porphyry Island on Lake Superior, where Elizabeth’s father manned the lighthouse seventy years before.
.
.
As the words on these musty pages come alive, Elizabeth and Morgan begin to realize that their fates are connected to the isolated island in ways they never dreamed. While the discovery of Morgan's connection sheds light onto her own family mysteries, the faded pages of the journals hold more questions than answers for Elizabeth, and threaten the very core of who she is.

📚Goodreads📚
I'm sharing today my Goodreads goal 😁 I finally made the decision to up my goal for this year. If you may not have seen my post from a while back, my goal originally was set for 45 reads.
Once I hit 40 reads I made the decision to go up to 55. I still have not decided if I may go a little higher, but we will see once I get closer to my new goal ❤
Do you set a goal? If so, How is your goal coming along this year? 📚

Hello!! I hope you all are having a wonderful Tuesday 😊
•••
It's raining..again ☔️. Even though I like rainy days this is getting a little out of hand 😂
•••
Q: If you write, do you get writer's block?
•••
I love to write, but I've been having a major writer's block for about a week now 😢 I guess my novel won't be finished this year 🤪

Don't know if I mentioned it, but I'm slowly moving all my stuff into my boyfriend's house and my books are getting packed into boxes. I also got a new job!😄 So I haven't had much time to post but I have had a lot of time to start listening to audio books while I work
.
Does anyone know any good audio books I could listen to while I work?

Who goes on a contemporary kick in the summer?! ⭐️⭐️⭐️ to Miss You •



I’ve only read two books so far in August... what is happening to me?! 😱I’m only going to be able to read less once the school years starts & I wanted to read MANY more books this month

QOTD: have you received any book crate subscriptions?
🧡
I just signed up for @mcleodsbooksrotorua’s #cleodcrate a few weeks ago and got my August box on Monday. Oh, it was so much fun to open.
🧡
The clue was a haiku:
Exile of the gods
Solace in an island home
The golden-eyed witch
🧡
Intriguing, yes?
🧡
The book is Circe by @madeline.e.miller and included in the box is a jar of delicious kalamata olives from Vetro (an awesome Mediterranean grocery store in Rotorua) and a sachet of flower petals for a facial steam from @anointskincare that smells divine.
🧡
Thanks, McLeods!

Day 14 #allthebooksaug18 ~ Enchanting ~ I think a book about a rejected heroine torn between the world of the Greek gods and the realm of mortals qualifies, don’t you?
🧡

With school starting, I’m not sure how well I’ll be able to keep up with writing every day, but recently i have been doing much better with it. Problem is, with homework and family, there’s a good chance I will only be able to write either late at night or really early in the morning. Anyone who knows me knows that i have a strict sleeping schedule and if i don’t follow it i am exhausted. Maybe I’ll try writing late and waking later. Thoughts?

“I am your number one fan.”
.
Okay so last month I read a book where my favourite author killed off my favourite character and I was SO ANGRY at him for doing that. So utterly heartbroken and angry. For the rest of that night anyway, and then I moved on with my life! (Mostly. It still hurts to think about it but let’s not get into that)
.
.
Annie, you absolute psycho. You can’t do things like this to people!
.
The tension in this book is unbelievable. It was hard to put down because I needed to know what Annie was going to do next, but also hard to read at times because of what Annie did next.
There were some absolutely brutal scenes read with my hand over my face peeking through my fingers and times where all I could do was nervous laugh my way through Annie’s dialogue, thinking “what the fuuuuuuck?!” the whole time.
.
I’ve definitely found a new favourite King character.
.
In amongst all the tension, violence and downright insanity I must say I adored the nods to readers throughout this. We invest ourselves in these worlds, in these characters, and we do start to feel like we know them, and grieve them when they’re gone. It was really nice to see that understood and acknowledged here - maybe not always in the healthiest of ways, but still.
.
.
The most chilling part of this book? There’s nothing supernatural here. Annie is just your average person - your neighbour maybe, or a work colleague. She’s making decisions and taking actions that she believes in and her rationale is absolutely terrifying.

I say this every time I post a Philippa Gregory photo, I need to read more of her books! And I will! There’s just such a stack to get through! 😂 I hope to read at least one this year.
Btw, that cup did have tea in it, but it was drunk by the time I took the photo ☕️

Do you have a favourite historical fiction show?

Poldark is obviously one of mine, but I loved The White Queen too 😍
