Recent Reads: March

My quest to be a bookworm is still going strong! I wanted to share my thoughts on 3 of the books I read this month. I suppose this post is a little "Bachelor-themed" because two of the books I read were written by celebrities from the franchise. Sorry I'm not sorry, ladies and gents. I've been addicted to that silly show for too many years not to check out a few of the Bachelor reads. So, here we go! Recent reads in March...


I Didn't Come Here To Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain 
By Courtney Robertson

As a bachelor fan who remembers her season well, I found Courtney's book very entertaining. Obviously she is the author, but she came off very likable in her book and I found myself rooting for her. So yes, it was very entertaining. That said, I cannot in good conscious recommend it to someone because it was pretty vulgar. I enjoyed her honesty and sarcasm but a few details/words could have been spared. I give it 3 out of 5 stars. If you're a Bachelor fan and don't mind the vulgarity, you'll enjoy it. 


For The Right Reasons 
By Sean Lowe

Yall, this was an awesome read. This novel chronicles Sean's life playing football, getting his heart broken on The Bachelorette, finding true love on The Bachelor, and marrying the love of his life. The book just drew me in, and I read over half of it in one sitting. Granted, I had 5 hours on a plane to endure, but this book made it go by so quickly. You feel really emotionally connected to Sean's journey and I recommend this book 10 times over. 5 out of 5 stars for sure. Even if you're not a Bachelor fan, it's a great reminder to rely on faith through the good and the bad. 


Where We Belong 
By Emily Giffin

I'm a big Emily Giffin fan, so I really liked this. It's an easy read, and the book alternates between the viewpoint of the two main characters (Marian and Kirby), so you really get to feel the story from both perspectives. This story is a great reminder that it's never too late to go after what you want or mend relationships. I give it 4 out of 5 stars and would recommend it for a fun Spring read. 


I've been adding books on goodreads like crazy and have a few titles I am really excited to read next!

Chelsea, Have you ever read anything by Karen Kingsbury? She has a ton of books, is considered a Christian writer, and I loved all of the books I read by her.

Kate Mitchell said...

These books all look good! I've been a Bachelor fan off and on, but I watched Courtney's season, and I kind of want to read her book now.

I have been slacking when it comes to reading, I really need to get better about it.

Last night I finished We Were Liars and I am still processing that ending. I also recently finished The Girl On The Train. Another one that took some processing to figure out the ending. I'm hoping for a more light read now, since both of those books were so intense. I might have to buy Sean's book. I love them and I am so happy that the found each other.

I'm not a huge of the bachelor but I would like to read either of those books. I'm really interested in the one by Courtney.

Angie Rachels said...

Have you tried Mary Kay Andrews books? Really funny books, always based in the south, love them! I love Emily Giffen!

I'm not a Bachelor fan but I can see how both of those books would be so interesting to read if you're familiar with the people! I've only read one of Giffin's books and have been wanting to read another one or two, so I'll have to check out that one!

I have read all of these books, too!

I somehow received a copy of Sean's book from his publicist, Katy, a few weeks before it hit shelves. I couldn't put it down either, once I got started I knew I had to finish it through, lol. I loved it!

I'm actually rereading Courtney's book right now. I was recently in a situation where I was out and I didn't have internet but I did have my Kindle. So, I just decided to read her book again. It's very entertaining and it is such a fun, quick read!

Oh and I love Emily Giffin! However, I haven't liked the last couple of books she has written. I did like, Where We Belong, but I would have liked for the ending to be better. Oh...and I hated Baby Proof. AND now I realize I am sounding like a snoody book critic and I hate that lol ; )

Stephanie said...

I want to read Sean's book. I have seen a lot of people enjoy it.

Katherine Newsom said...

You have to read Francine Rivers & Robin Jones Gunn!! Both faith based fiction. Both incredible authors!

I read For All The Right Reasons and really enjoyed it! I loved Sean's viewpoint and getting to know the little behind-the-scenes details. I want to read I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends :D
