Happy Friday! Did you survive Halloween? I had to work, but next year I'm excited to go with my kids even if my oldest isn't interested in anymore. We have a ton of candy. I'm going to have the boys sit down and go through it. The local kids' dentist does a buy back every year and then sends what he gets to the troops. I love having my kids give candy not only to get rid of some candy but it makes them feel good to send something of home to our troops.
In book news, I am doing a signing at our local bookstore December 14th from 11 to 1. I've very excited as well as nervous for it. My home is always extremely supportive of local artisans.
Now, onto what I read this week. I'm continuing my Penny Reid obsession with Friends Without Benefits and Love Hacked.
Friends Without Benefits was a funny read.
There are three things you need to know about Elizabeth Finney: 1) She suffers from severe sarcastic syndrome, especially when she's unnerved, 2) No one unnerves her like Nico Manganiello, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Elizabeth Finney is almost always right about everything: the musical merits of boy bands are undervalued by society, “benefits” with human Ken dolls are better without friendship, and the sun has set on her once-in-a-lifetime chance for true love. But when Elizabeth’s plans for benefits without friendship are disarmed by the irritatingly charismatic and chauvinistic Nico Manganiello—her former nemesis—she finds herself struggling to maintain the electric fence around her heart while avoiding a Nico charisma-electrocution or, worse, falling in love.
Love Hacked was also a funny read.
There are three things you need to know about Sandra Fielding: 1) She makes all her first dates cry, 2) She hasn't been kissed in over two years, and 3) She knows how to knit.
Sandra has difficulty removing her psychotherapist hat. Of her last 30 dates, 29 have ended the same way: the man sobbing uncontrollably. After one such disaster, Sandra gives in to a seemingly harmless encounter with her hot waiter, Alex. Argumentative, secretive, and hostile Alex may be the opposite of everything Sandra knows is right for her. But now, the girl who has spent all her life helping others change for the better, must find a way to cope with falling for someone who refuses to change at all.
Have a wonderful weekend.
