Hello Readers! Last week, I finally got my new laptop, yayy! I totally forgot how it feels to use faster device that don’t show me “Not Responding” thing and not waiting impatiently for things to open. And best thing is I don’t need to enter password every time it locks. This laptop is Mi Notebook and I can connect it to my Mi band. Laptop unlock itself on detecting band. It feels so good.
In terms of reading I read 2 books and finally finished Cometh the Hour, I was putting on backburner for a month. But that made it difficult to write review.
What I read last week-
Flying Solo by Zoe May
This was my third book by Zoe May and I enjoyed as much as her previous books. It fun and entertaining story of Rachel and her experience in Indian ashram that changed her life. Here is REVIEW if you missed it. I just saw author is going to write sequel as well, Flying Duo. I’m really excited about it.
What You Wish For by Katherine Center
I loved Katherine Center’s How To Walk Away and I loved this book too. There were heavy topics but yet it felt good to see so much positivity. I loved Sam, her school, her quirky dressing and everything I read. Easy 5 star, review will be up tomorrow.
Cometh the Hour (The Clifton Chronicles, #6) by Jeffrey Archer
There was nothing wrong in this book and as I said I made mistake putting it on backburner, reading other books in between and not reading it at one go that dampened my experience with this. It was interesting, I liked reading what was happening in characters’ life and how they came out of enemies’ trap. And that end, cliff-hanger! I can’t wait to see what happens next but with last book of series, I’ll not same mistake and will pick it when I’m in right mood.
Next I’ll be reading-
Happy & You Know It by Laura Hankin
A dark, witty page-turner set around a group of wealthy mothers and the young musician who takes a job singing to their babies and finds herself pulled into their glamorous lives and dangerous secrets….
After her former band shot to superstardom without her, Claire reluctantly agrees to a gig as a playgroup musician for overprivileged infants on New York’s Park Avenue. Claire is surprised to discover that she is smitten with her new employers, a welcoming clique of wellness addicts with impossibly shiny hair, who whirl from juice cleanse to overpriced miracle vitamins to spin class with limitless energy.
There is perfect hostess Whitney who is on the brink of social-media stardom and just needs to find a way to keep her perfect life from falling apart. Caustically funny, recent stay-at-home mom Amara who is struggling to embrace her new identity. And old money, veteran mom Gwen who never misses an opportunity to dole out parenting advice. But as Claire grows closer to the cool women who pay her bills, she uncovers secrets and betrayals that no amount of activated charcoal can fix.
Filled with humor and shocking twists, Happy and You Know It is a brilliant take on motherhood—exposing it as yet another way for society to pass judgment on women—while also exploring the baffling magnetism of curated social-media lives that are designed to make us feel unworthy. But, ultimately, this dazzling novel celebrates the unlikely bonds that form, and the power that can be unlocked, when a group of very different women is thrown together when each is at her most vulnerable.
I’ll start this today. Whoever read this enjoyed it so I hope it turns out good and I would like to relate to mothers’ experience.
Tiny Imperfections by Alli Frank, Asha Youmans
The Wedding Date meets Class Mom in this delicious novel of love, money, and misbehaving parents.
All’s fair in love and kindergarten admissions.
At thirty-nine, Josie Bordelon’s modeling career as the “it” black beauty of the ’90s is far behind her. Now director of admissions at San Francisco’s most sought after private school, she’s chic, single, and determined to keep her seventeen-year-old daughter, Etta, from making the same mistakes she did.
But Etta has plans of her own–and their beloved matriarch, Aunt Viv, has Etta’s back. If only Josie could manage Etta’s future as well as she manages the shenanigans of the over-anxious, over-eager parents at school–or her best friend’s attempts to coax Josie out of her sex sabbatical and back onto the dating scene.
As admissions season heats up, Josie discovers that when it comes to matters of the heart–and the office–the biggest surprises lie closest to home.
This sounds light and fun. And that cover is awesome.
