This has been a slow reading week. Real life has interrupted, and I got very little reading done. And them Saturday happened and I finished 2 books. I guess hurting my back so I could barely move all day was good for something: my #OlympicReadathon progress that is. At least my son was well behaved all day, playing in the living room and on the balcony where I could see him, jumping around, playing dinosaurs and iPad and generally having fun.

Books read:

This book took me a while to read. I had a hard time with Katriona because she is supposedly 20 years old and has never kissed a boy, and she has regularly had sleepovers in the same bed with her male best friend since she was a kid. That and the book is not really a full story, but more of a set-up book for the series.

These were both amusing romance stories, each with unique twists. The Coffee Shop was told from a male POV and included alternate timelines. Timeless Desire include time travel back to the 1700s. I had a lot of fun reading both stories.
