Hello again! Sorry I took a bit of an unannounced hiatus. But, I’m back! This month I read 12 books! I am on track right now to be able to hit my goal of 150 books for the year!
While I am aiming for 150 books this year, I am also aiming to diversify my reading. I am trying to break into genres I don’t typically gravitate toward. I am hoping to read more non-fiction and classics. And, as always, I am taking part in several reading challenges.
Raised by conservative parents, 18-year-old Meg Hennessey just found out her entirechildhood was a lie. Instead of taking a gap year before college to find herself, she ends up traveling north to meet what’s left of the family she never knew existed.
While there, she meets Micah Allen, a former pastor’s kid whose dad ended up in prison,leaving Micah with his own complicated relationship about the church. The clock is ticking on Pastor Allen’s probation hearing and Micah, now 19, feels the pressure to forgive – even when he can’t possibly forget.
As Meg and Micah grow closer, they are confronted with the heavy flutterings of first love and all the complications it brings. Together, they must navigate the sometimes-painful process ofcutting ties with childhood beliefs as they build toward something truer and straight from the heart.
After having just graduated with a degree in shoe design, and trying to get her feet on the ground, Cindy is working for her stepmother, who happens to be the executive producer of America’s favorite reality show, Before Midnight. When a spot on the show needs filling ASAP, Cindy volunteers, hoping it might help jump-start her fashion career, or at least give her something to do while her peers land jobs in the world of high fashion.
Turns out being the only plus size woman on a reality dating competition makes a splash, and soon Cindy becomes a body positivity icon for women everywhere. What she doesn’t expect? That she may just find inspiration-and love-in the process. Ultimately, Cindy learns that if the shoe doesn’t fit, maybe it’s time to design your own.
I am so excited to get to share my review of The River Has Teeth by Erica Waters with you, but also to get to interview Erica about her new book too! Erica was kind enough to send me a copy of the ARC and agreed to answer a few questions as well.
Without further ado, here is my interview with Erica Waters!
I am what you might call an avid reader. I tend to read into the 100’s of books per year. This year in particular, I have set myself an extra challenge of reading 150 books in a year (the most I have ever gotten has been 132). I am currently at 92 books for the year…and it is only July. 🤯
So many people ask me how in the world I am able to read so much (seeing as I have a job and a toddler). If you are looking for tips on how to read more often, then this is the list for you. It doesn’t have to be into the 100s, it could be one book a month. Either way, I am here to tell you how you can get more reading into your life.
