Yearly Wrap-Up: 2019

yearlywrapup

I am a few weeks late on this, but I wanted to go ahead and post my yearly wrap-up for 2019! It was a crazy year for me. The vast majority of my year was focused on our adoption. After waiting for what felt like forever, we finally adopted our daughter in 2019! It has been an amazing and stressful journey, but it finally feels like we are settling down into a good routine. Other than the adoption, I spent a lot of time with family and friends, as well as some much needed time with my husband. I left my job and became a stay-at-home mom. And I still read a TON of books!! Continue reading “Yearly Wrap-Up: 2019”

My 2020 Reading Goals

2020ReadingGoals

It is officially 2020!! I kind of fell off the blogging band wagon last year (adopting a new baby can do that to a person), but I fully intend to jump back on! I might not post quite as much as I used to, but I am going to try to be more consistent.

Starting a new year is always fun for me. I am a nerdy little planner at heart, so making plans for the new year gives me a little thrill. I am going to be following along with a bunch of different reading challenges. I might not finish all of them, but I think that is alright. Just having a guide that will lead me towards books that I might not otherwise pick up is going to be fun for me.

Book Review: Husband Material

Husband Material by Emily Belden ~ 304 pages ~ to be published 12/30/19 by Graydon House

Goodreads Synopsis:

Sometimes love is unpredictable…

Twenty-nine-year-old Charlotte Rosen has a secret: she’s a widow. Ever since the fateful day that leveled her world, Charlotte has worked hard to move forward. Great job at a hot social media analytics company? Check. Roommate with no knowledge of her past? Check. Adorable dog? Check. All the while, she’s faithfully data-crunched her way through life, calculating the probability of risk—so she can avoid it.

Yet Charlotte’s algorithms could never have predicted that her late husband’s ashes would land squarely on her doorstep five years later. Stunned but determined, Charlotte sets out to find meaning in this sudden twist of fate, even if that includes facing her perfectly coiffed, and perfectly difficult, ex-mother-in-law—and her husband’s best friend, who seems to become a fixture at her side whether she likes it or not.

But soon a shocking secret surfaces, forcing Charlotte to answer questions she never knew to ask and to consider the possibility of forgiveness. And when a chance at new love arises, she’ll have to decide once and for all whether to follow the numbers or trust her heart.
