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 spent a good chunk of my Sunday reading and eventually finishing The Holly Dates by Brittainy Cherry. It was a fun and cute holiday romance although it does cover some fairly serious topics so it wasn’t exactly the rom-com I expected. But I do think it’s a romance that’ll put you in a happy holiday mood!
All she wanted for Christmas was a boyfriend for the holidays…
All he wanted was for her to take her crappy first dates elsewhere…
Quirky Holly Jackson was unlucky in love, yet her romantic heart refused to give up her search for companionship—even after her fiancé left her at the altar on Christmas Eve.
Grumpy restaurant owner Kai Kane wanted nothing to do with love after his last relationship crashed and burned. Romance was the last thing on his mind. Unfortunately for him, when an eccentric Holly kept entering his restaurant nightly with a different first date, his annoyance grew.
When Kai volunteered to help Holly find a suitor it was for one reason only: to get her out of his restaurant and on to a second date with someone at a different location.
Once Kai became Holly’s dating coach, her confidence grew.
It was all going great until Kai became increasingly jealous of the connection Holly developed with another man. The more Holly fell for Kai’s pick for her, the more overprotective he became.
Kai quickly realized that all wasn’t fair when it came to love and the holidays.
He was going to have to step up his game if he wanted a shot at the ultimate prize—being Holly’s favorite date.
*The Holly Dates is a steamy, full-length romantic comedy that will put you right in the holiday spirit.*

What are you currently reading?
The first half of the week saw me unable to focus on anything but the nerves I felt in prep for The Interview™️ on Wednesday. It was a freaking brutal interview but I’m glad that it’s over. The results will be out next week so I guess it won’t be much longer until I find out whether I get it or not! After the adrenaline left my body post-interview, I’ve been in the mood to do some retail therapy, which hasn’t happened in a while… so I ended up going shopping the other day and ngl, it felt good!
Also, I can’t believe it’s December?! Like, WHAT. 🥴
After counting the book I just finished today, I’m one book away from reading 200 books this year! Last year I read 199 books (welp) and I don’t think I’ve ever exceeded 200 books so this is an exciting first?! I honestly find it a little hard to believe that I’ve read so much! 😂
