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 spent your time curled up reading in bed with or which book you wish you had time to read today!
I’m hoping to spend my Sunday night in bed reading my ARC of Runaway Groomsman by Meghan Quinn. I’ve been looking forward to reading this for a while so I’m excited to dive in before it releases on Tuesday, 11 October!
From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn comes a heartfelt romantic comedy about new beginnings and finding the romanticized happily ever after in the most unlikely of places.
Hollywood screenwriter Sawyer Castle knows a good love story when he sees it. But when it comes to real life romance, he’s a mess. That’s how he finds himself standing at the altar…as his ex-girlfriend ties the knot with his very famous best friend. The pressure, the resentment, the media coverage—it’s all too much—and before he knows exactly what he’s doing, he’s making a run for it, leaving a shocked congregation and flashing cameras in his wake.
Needing to lie low amid the media fallout, Sawyer lands in the charming town of Canoodle, California, where he crosses paths with Fallon Long, who runs the Canoodle Cove Cabins, a family-owned business and Sawyer’s new short-term residence. Overwhelmed with renovations and her long list of responsibilities, Fallon is struggling to make ends meet while attempting to bring the cabins back to their original glory. So when Sawyer arrives, she is grateful for the income, but immediately writes him off as just another vapid Hollywood hack, until he begins to prove her wrong at every turn.
As Fallon comes closer to saving the family business, an undeniable bond forms between her and the handsome screenwriter. But the pressures of her family obligations and Sawyer’s notoriety might prove to be too much for anyone to handle. Could Canoodle be the setting for a new romance—or is true love just a Hollywood cliché?

My cousin’s final wedding event, the big Western vow ceremony and reception, took place last night and so the wedding festivities are now officially over. It’s a bittersweet moment because I have to return to Jakarta for work already early tomorrow morning, which means I won’t get more time with family from overseas. Hopefully, it won’t be another 3-5 years until they visit Bali again but I guess that means I just need to save money to get to the US, Australia and Canada! 😃 Yesterday was a lot of fun but now my legs and body are aching and I’m definitely feeling my non-partying age? Haha!
I haven’t had much time to read this past week but much of my reading focus has been on Babel as I’m buddy-reading it with a small group of people. It’s amazing! We’re not even halfway through but I’m tabbing the hell out of this book and it’s making me feel all the feels already.
