Literary Friday ya’ll…


Ya’ll… The walk this morning was killer. If sweat is fat cells crying- my fat cells were CRYING.


1. ICYMI at Traveling With T: I have giveaways for Perfectly Famous, The Summer Deal and The Second Home.  Other posts: reviews of Perfectly Famous, The Summer Deal, & Hideaway. A spotlight/excerpt of Sister Dear.


2. It was 2019 before I read a Nora Roberts book and I’m trying to make up for lost time 🙂

Thanks to @stmartinspress { partner} for the gifted copy of Nora Roberts’s latest book ( releasing tomorrow!) Hideaway. . . Can I admit something? It was 2019 before I read my first Nora Roberts book. I’ve been reading for YEARS & for some reason had never read any of her books. Before ya’ll all gang up & want to take my reader card away- I’ve now read 3 of her books ( well listened to 1). . . This was def a family saga with romantic suspense elements in it ( in my opinion) & I really enjoyed the story. Plus that cover 👍 . . From my review: “Bottom Line: While I may be new to the genius of Nora Roberts- I am a fan now. Give me more!” . . Will you be reading Hideaway this summer? . . #travelingwithtreads #travelingwithtbookreviews #hideawaybynoraroberts #noraroberts #norarobertsbooks #genxbookstagrammers #msbookstagrammers #booksofinstagram #booksofinsta #mississippibookstagrammers

Blue skies, a nice breeze & listening 🎧 to The Wife Stalker started my Monday morning off on the right foot ( that 2.5 mile walk also helped ❤️) . . It’s June 1st & I would love to talk goals with you- do you have any in mind? . . Health goals: 1. Continue my 2 walks a day. 2. Continue doing my chair dips ( my arms need some work) 3. Add in my elliptical trainer for an extra workout each day. 4. Stay hydrated! . . Reading/Blog Goals: 1. Read 8-10 books. 2. Blog 3 times a week ( at least) 3. Begin organizing my bookmail into a spreadsheet with Pub contact info. . . Personal goals: 1. Take some time for myself- the last few weeks I’ve felt busy with a whole bunch of demands on my time- I need to take care of me. 2. Schedule a mani/pedi soon. . . #travelingwithtreads #genxbookstagrammers #mississippibookstagrammers #msbookstagrammers

6. Have you read The Summer Deal?

Thanks @williammorrowbooks {partner} for the gifted copy of The Summer Deal by @jillshalvis. . . You may remember my recent selfie with this book as I was SO excited to get it ( and boy, did it live up to my expectations!) . . From my review: “The relationship amongst the cast of characters. All of them have reasons to not trust people, to be afraid to ask for what they want out of life, to sit in the corner and sulk that life dealt them a bad hand. But the bond- even when the bond is not completely apparent- is something that really worked in this book.” . . Looking for a great summer read? Here is one I expect to see many people loving on! 📚👙🕶☀️ . . PS: want to win a copy? Got a US/CA only giveaway happening at my blog! . . #travelingwithtreads #travelingwithtbookreviews #genxbookstagrammers #readreadread📚 #booksofinsta #msbookstagrammers #alwaysreading #mississippibookstagrammers

7. After a sweaty walk, umpteen dozen chores, taking care of a neighbor’s cats- it was time for some pool time and a little Hello, Summer. Only thing missing: Cocktails!


8. #FridayReads: Reading Hello, Summer. Finished earlier this week The Wife Stalker on audio. Trying to decide if I want to get an Audible or Libro,fm subscription?


*What are you reading this weekend?*


Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,

T @ Traveling With T
