That time I read 3 books in 1 week…

Good morning on this very gloomy, extremely warm and humid Houston day. Despite the crazy, unwinter-like weather, I’m bound and determined to make today a good one. Here’s one way I’m going to do that…talk to y’all about the 3 books I just read. All by Colleen Hoover. She has an amazing way with words.

I absolutely love to read. I love the way I feel when I get lost in a story. I love the emotions. I love that I can plant myself right there beside the characters. I guess you could say it’s sort of an escape. I try to read as often as possible, but let’s be honest, this over-committed, crazy girl doesn’t always have time. My favorite times to read are in the bath tub, on a lazy Sunday, on car trips and on flights. Two weekends ago I had a lazy Sunday and I had 2 flights and down time at the airport this weekend. Somehow this resulted in me reading 3 books. Did I mention I read fast?

So here you go, the next books you need to read are…

This was a beautiful story about young love and finding yourself. If you like plot twists and feeling on edge about what’s going to happen next, this is for you. I was literally hooked from the beginning.



Slammed is the first of a two book series. This is another romance that takes you into the lives of two young people dealing with more trauma and sadness than most people experience. You get wrapped up in every emotion. I was crying at one point and laughing the next.


Point of Retreat

Read this after Slammed. At this point you know the characters, you know what they’ve been through and now it’s time to see how they continue on through life. More trials, more smiles and more life lessons. It shows you that love is never easy, but it’s always worth it.


Y’all, seriously read these books. If your looking for something to read on your next gloomy day, start here. I promise you won’t regret it. All of these books were recommended to me by Lia Joy. Everything she’s ever told me to read I have fallen in love with.

Do you love to read? What are your favorites and what should I read next?! I love suggestions!


Until next time…
With love and God bless,
