Ghosted by Rosie Walsh

I purchased this book from @bookofthemonth to read with my bestie @mycornerforbooksand. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Ghosted by Rosie Walsh. Sarah has realized her marriage is over and even though they agree to divorce, things are still complicated; they run a business together. She heads back home to England for a business meeting and then a visit to her parents. She has a one week fling with the perfect guy, but then she’s ghosted. He doesn’t call, won’t return her texts, and the messages on social media show open but no reply. Her friends tell her she is crazy, but she is seeing him everywhere, even in California. When she finally does find him, he doesnt tell her what she wants to hear but it’s so much bigger than what she wants and what he wants. Sometimes the past is stronger than what we want for our futures. Sometimes it isn’t.

Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks

I purchased this book from a local thrift store to read with The Well Read Women Bookclub. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟 Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks. This was not my favorite Sparks book. I sometimes felt like the story was too long and too detailed. I loved London’s spunk and I hated Vivian with everything in my body. The tragedy of a marriage coming undone and losing the people close to you is scary and while Sparks wrote it well I still kept getting caught up in the so many details in this story.

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

I purchased this book to read with my bestie @mycornerforbooksand. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han. I hated to close the last book to this series. I got to watch Lara Jean blossom from an early teen to graduation and now off to college with her romance vibe still intact. What a great series and this book was a great ending to that series. Lara Jean and her sisters are just so cute! It was hard not to fall in love with them all.
