And oh yes… the blog has changed somewhat. 😉 I upgraded everything!!! But also, now that everything’s pretty much done (minus a few bugs to work out in the changeover), I’m finally able to read again. And buddy reading, no less! Amy (my book-twin) and I are reading the same book and we didn’t even plan it!
Amy: The Girl He Used to Know by Tracey Garvis Graves – You guys, I think I’ve found one I could end up loving! I don’t want to say it to soon because I’ve done that before and then ended up feeling “meh” about it, but this one has LOVE IT potential! Annika has my heart already, and I’m only 25% in. The writing just flows, and I’m not *gasp* getting annoyed by anything in the book!
Maryse: Amy!! We’re reading the same book!!! YAY US!! BUDDY READ!!
Amy: YAY MARYSE!!! How are you liking TGHUTK?
Maryse: I’ve just started last night so I’m only a few chapters in but I’m happy that (at least so far) it’s all from her POV. I’m totally in. Tracey Garvis-Graves is such a great writer and story-teller. :D!!!
Linda: The Girl He Used to Know was a “must read EVERY word” kinda read. Absolutely adored the H/h.

Brooke:Hey Maryse! I wanted to tell you about a book that I just read. This is my first time messaging you and I’ve been following you for years so that should tell you how awesome this book is.
It’s called Love Lost Her Way by Julie Anne Addicott. Let me tell you, it is hands down my fave of 2019. It has everything we love.

You can tell this author did her research because it is so well done, thorough, the characters are amazing! It only has 27 reviews and I just submitted mine.
I feel like this book NEEDS the recognition it deserves. I’m not a blogger. I’m a SAHM and have no clue how this stuff goes, I just know I love to read and read every single day or I go crazy. I honestly thought of you first because I follow you more than anyone and we have similar taste in books. Anyway, if you read this, thanks!!
