Hey Friends! I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. I honestly just wanted to check in with you all and chat about my current reading status and my thoughts after having reached my reading goal on Goodreads.
Recently I finished Evergreen Springs by Raeanne Thayne which is book 3 in the Haven Point series. I gave this book 5 stars on Goodreads. This series is just what I need at the moment. I really believe sometimes you read books when you’re truly meant to, and that’s how I’ve felt with each of these books. Yes, this book is a Christmas romance and yes, I know it is the middle of June. I told myself I would read Christmas novels throughout the year because they really put me in a good mood!
After finishing Evergreen Springs, I immediately checked both Audible and Overdrive to see if either had the audiobook to book four, Riverbend Road. I was super excited to see one of my libraries indeed had it-so just like with Evergreen Springs I will be reading the physical copy and following along on audio.
I love reading e-books Friends. I have the Kindle App downloaded on both my Ipad and IPhone so […]
Hello Friends. It is currently Sunday evening which is the time I usually spend watching a romantic comedy I’ve rented from Amazon or have saved on my DVR. Tonight though, I wanted to switch it up and browse titles on Netflix. I’m not much of a Netflix watcher but my husband logged on and created a profile for me so I could browse their Romantic movies. I was really shocked and a little disappointed because their selection wasn’t what I expected. This got me thinking about some of the romances I’ve read that I secretly wish had their own film adaptation.
Next Year In Havana by Chanel Cleeton is a story I haven’t been able to get off my mind since reading it. This is the story of both Marisol and her Grandmother Elisa who has recently passed away. It was Elisa’s wish to be cremated and for Marisol to take her ashes back to Cuba where their lineage is from. Elisa and her family left Cuba during the Cuban Revolution. It is while there that Marisol learns of her Grandmother’s secret first love and finds a possible new love of her own.
If Next Year In Havana became a film I’d be at the theater the day it premiered! I would love to see more stories that focus on the part of history this book deals with. Until reading this book I didn’t know much about Cuban history and this book was very eye opening. I’m also such a fan of reading two women who are connected in some way but their stories are years apart. Obviously this is Marisol and her Grandmother’s story but while In Cuba, Marisol feels at times that she didn’t know her Grandmother at all because there are plenty of secrets she begins to unearth. Lastly, I find the story line of two people who love each other and are meant to be together but don’t end up together, SO romantic. This book had me in tears because Chanel Cleeton did a fabulous job of building this relationship between two people who you root for and want to see together but things happen that keep them a part. This book needs to be a movie like five minutes ago. It is so good!
