Books Lately

Happy Show Us Your Books day with Steph & Jana! I don't have a ton to share today, I have fallen off the reading wagon hard. First it was stress and crappy stuff and I just couldn't concentrate on a book, but now I'm feeling like reading again but have been busy busy busy. I can see the light at the end of the busy tunnel and I am sure I will be back to normal soon. Also, my phone went kaput for several hours last weekend and the only way I could get it back up was to restore it and of course I hadn't done a backup in ages and lost all my photos and I don't want to talk about it but here's a picture of a book and Penny back in May. It's fine, I'm fine, everyone is fine.

nothing lately, womp.
Everything Isn't Terrible - Kathleen Smith
self help/anxiety
I thought the first half of this was fantastic and very eye opening/helpful. I didn't like the second half. I don't know if that was because it was bad, or because I couldn't relate to those scenarios at all. If you deal with anxiety, maybe it's worth a read anyway. It probably depends on the areas of your life that give you anxiety. It was a very short, quick read. Doesn't come out until December though, so... christmas wish list?
Received from netgalley
The Key to Happily Ever After - Tif Marcelo
three sisters, wedding planners, family drama 
This was okay. It wasn't amazing, it wasn't awful. I think perhaps it tried to do too much, or maybe it was because it wasn't what I was expecting at all. It was fine. It took me 2 months to read, so not really a page turner.

Three Women - Lisa Taddeo
follows the sex lives of three women
This was book club's latest, and it was... not a hit. So much potential! This was just weird. I feel like it could have been better. Ruined cadbury creme eggs for me. Jk, nothing could do that, but seriously. Think twice before you read it if you like them. You can't unimagine some things.

The Best Thing - Mariana Zapata
Still not as amazing as Winnipeg, but definitely better than Luna and the Lie. Honestly, I read this during one of the more stressful/upsetting times in the past month so it's like I didn't really absorb it and might need to reread it one day. I did like it though.

Well. According to goodreads, I am 'currently reading' these 5 books, but haven't picked any of them up in a couple weeks. So.

Linking up with Steph & Jana

Life According to Steph

TL;DR - I recommend.... um. I recommend that you recommend me something, ha. But seriously.

Read anything decent lately?
