It’s Sunday again already?! I don’t think I’m ever going to stop questioning how my weekends go so quickly. I only wish that the weekdays would do the same 😂 We’re back with another Sundays in Bed With… meme! This meme dares to ask you what book has been in your bed this morning and is hosted by Midnight Book Girl. Come share what book you’ve been you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed with, or which book you wish you had time to read today!
I spent the majority of my day finishing my first Marina Zapata book (review coming soon!) but I’m now in a contemporary romance mood. I think I’m going to pick up From the Start (Walker Family #1) by Melissa Tagg next. I’m a sucker for small town romances and from this week’s TTT, which looked at favorite tropes, I came across quite a few other book bloggers who loved the same trope and gave some book recs that sounded up my alley.
Kate Walker used to believe in true love and happily ever after. While her own love life may have left her brokenhearted, it hasn’t kept her from churning out made-for-TV romance movie screenplays…until a major career slump and a longing to do something meaningful send her running back to her hometown of Maple Valley.
Permanently sidelined by an injury, former NFL quarterback Colton Greene is temporarily hiding out in a friend’s hometown to avoid the media and the reminders of all he’s lost. Maple Valley seems like the perfect place to learn how to adjust to normal life. The only trouble is he’s never really done normal before.
While Kate plays things safe and Colton is all about big risks and grand gestures, they both get what it’s like to desperately need direction in life. An unexpected project gives them both a chance to jumpstart their new lives, but old wounds and new dreams are hard to ignore. Starting over wasn’t part of the plan, but could it be the best thing that’s ever happened to them?
What are you currently reading?
I’m officially out of my book slump and this week has probably been my best reading week since August started. I spent my Saturday out and about with my bestie on the island and ended up going a little crazy with the retail therapy! I wasn’t looking to buy anything but I managed to come home with four bags full of shoes, clothes, beauty care and general knick knacks for home. I shocked myself (and my friend!) by walking into a book store and walking out without a purchase though! Who am I even?! It might’ve been the rampant shopping I’d already indulged in prior to stepping into the bookstore that made me feel a little guilty so I managed to hold myself back! I think I’m going to do a post-summer Marie Kondo of my closet and bookshelf next weekend, just to clear up the clutter that’s hanging around my tiny flat!
Overall it’s been a pretty good week. Work didn’t drive me too mental. I had some issues with my laptop that I took care of. I’ve started reading again. I’ve also been listening to Lover all weekend. I wasn’t fan of a few songs on the album when it came out on Friday, but as I expected, they’ve all mostly grown on me now. Have you been listening to the album? Do you have a new favorite track? Cornelia Street and Death by A Thousand Cuts might be new faves but Lover has really grown on me! I’ve still got quite a few reviews to catch up on but I’ll be working on posting those in the coming week! I also have quite a few book tags that I want to do from when I was tagged over the last few weeks! I find that I always just take forever to think of answers and then questions to ask 😂 It’s not been my greatest blogging week but I’m okay with that–life happens after all! On that note, here’s what I did manage to post last week, in case you missed it:
Top 5 Saturday: Dragons
Friday Favorites: Nerdy Characters
Review: The Whisper Man by Alex North
ARC Review: Probably the Best Kiss in the World by Pernille Hughes
#WWWWednesday: 21 August
#TopTenTuesday: Favorite Tropes
Goodreads Monday: 19 August

i’m so glad it was a better week for you 🥰
Glad you are out of your reading slump!
I’m glad you are out of your slump!!! And sometimes you just need a bit of retail therapy! 😀
Also I took a break from writing this reply to listen to Swift’s whole album 😂 😂 Thanks for that! My favorite is Paper Rings but I also really liked I Forgot You Existed, The Man, and It’s Nice To Have A Friend. Also I didn’t know the Dixie Chicks were still around?!?!

I definitely did retail therapy big time 😅 It’s been a while though since I went on a splurge like this… It was bound to happen eventually I suppose? Haha this is me still trying to justify my spending spree!
Yay! Glad you listened to the whole album. I really really like it. Paper Rings and I Forgot You Existed are so good! The Man and Friend wasn’t my favorite at the start but they’ve really grown on me since I’ve listened to the album a billion times now 😂

Omg, that’s great to hear, Rissi! I hadn’t heard about her (Melissa) before stumbling across this book as a rec for small town romance, so I’m excited for it! Also, yes, ever since reading your review post of the album I haven’t been able to stop listening to it 😂 I might’ve put it on repeat it all weekend haha
