I had the last week off and read three books! I think that’s my record for one week since this pandemic started. It felt good! I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend in the US. It’s back to work for me today! Here’s what I’ll be starting my week off reading.
This post originated over on Book Date, so thanks for the idea and letting me continue on the discussion about what books I am reading.
I stayed up too late finishing this book last night. A story about a family who’s roots are in Italy. A generations old curse, and a woman who was determined to find her lost love. This was one of those introspective stories that give a lesson as well as entertain. I liked it. A lot.
I haven’t actually started this one yet, but this is next up! Here’s the synopsis:
Their lives began together, but their worlds couldn’t be more different. After thirty years of missed connections, they’re about to meet again…
Minnie Cooper knows two things with certainty: that her New Year’s birthday is unlucky, and that it’s all because of Quinn Hamilton, a man she’s never met. Their mothers gave birth to them at the same hospital just after midnight on New Year’s Day, but Quinn was given the cash prize for being the first baby born in London in 1990–and the name Minnie was meant to have, as well. With luck like that, it’s no wonder each of her birthdays has been more of a disaster than the one before.
When Minnie unexpectedly runs into Quinn at a New Year’s party on their mutual thirtieth birthday, she sees only more evidence that fortune has continued to favor him. The gorgeous, charming business owner truly seems to have it all–while Minnie’s on the brink of losing her pie-making company and her home. But if Quinn and Minnie are from different worlds, why do they keep bumping into each other? And why is it that each fraught encounter leaves them both wanting more?
A moving, joyful love story, This Time Next Year explores the way fate leads us to the people we least expect–no matter what the odds.
Now that you know what I’m starting my week reading, please share your book in the comments!
