January 2023 Wrap Up


Well, January is over and we are knee deep in 2023 now.

I wanted to say this year started off slow and easy, but it has been nothing short of a roller coaster over here at the hovel. The kids are keeping me on my toes with doctor appointment after doctor appointment. Not easy ones either. It took an hour to convince my middle son to get his vaccine that he needed to be able to stay in school. Not to mention his heart scare. All is good there though.

Within all the chaos, I managed to read 8 books last month. Not my best work, but still respectable. Lets recap.

It Ends with Us
Colleen Hoover

Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most.

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up — she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan — her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

This book was super dry and I couldn't bring myself to finish it. Stopped at 30%.
