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!
