Happy Monday! I’m unfortunately battling a cold today. I knew it’d catch up to me eventually. Everyone at my office has been getting sick so I guess it was inevitable. I hope it doesn’t impact my posts, I’m going to keep trying to put things up every day.
Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. I use a random number generator to choose a book on my Goodreads TBR to discuss. Today, the random number generator chose number 74 which is….
“In her twenties, Emma Blair marries her high school sweetheart, Jesse. They build a life for themselves, far away from the expectations of their parents and the people of their hometown in Massachusetts. They travel the world together, living life to the fullest and seizing every opportunity for adventure.
On their first wedding anniversary, Jesse is on a helicopter over the Pacific when it goes missing. Just like that, Jesse is gone forever.
Emma quits her job and moves home in an effort to put her life back together. Years later, now in her thirties, Emma runs into an old friend, Sam, and finds herself falling in love again. When Emma and Sam get engaged, it feels like Emma’s second chance at happiness.
That is, until Jesse is found. He’s alive, and he’s been trying all these years to come home to her. With a husband and a fiancé, Emma has to now figure out who she is and what she wants, while trying to protect the ones she loves.
Who is her one true love? What does it mean to love truly?
Emma knows she has to listen to her heart. She’s just not sure what it’s saying. ”
I’m a sucker for Taylor Jenkins Reid. I haven’t loved anything she’s written as much as The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo but I want to give her entire backlist a shot. This one sounds like something that’s hard-hitting with a deep discussion so I definitely think I’ll keep it on my TBR. I don’t love contemporary romances unless they’re hard-hitting. I give books higher ratings if they can make me cry because I love it when they make me feel a strong emotion whether it’s happy or sad and I think this one may just be able to do that. Goodreads Monday has not been great at lowering my TBR. I’m always convincing myself I want to pick these books up. Does anyone else have a similar problem?
