      It was a wonderful week. I relaxed and obviously read. I was even ready to come home. I accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish.

      I liked it. It wasn’t her best, and it was a bit of a slog at times but it was still a decent read.

    I’m curious about Hello Sunshine – it’s such a happy cover! Still trying to decide how much I liked Emma in the Night…

      Hello, Sunshine was the first book in ages that I could not stop reading. I started it around 10 PM and finished it around 2 AM-ish. I tried putting it down to sleep, but I kept obsessing over it so just got back up to finish reading.

      As for Emma in the Night, I think what I liked most was what she had to say about the mother. I found it hit a bit too close to home for me in some regards, so I was fascinated with how she was going to end that part of the story.

      I have loved all of Laura Dave’s novels. I’m not a fan of women’s lit, but she seems to be an exception. Hers are much more hard-hitting than other women’s lit novels, and I always love her characters.
