Bout of Books 10.0: Tuesday/Wednesday (Day 2 + 3)

Thursday, May 15, 2014

In true Amaris fashion, I did not pick a book off my TBR list. I know, I know ... but I couldn't resist starting Open Road Summer by Emery Lord once I received it in the mail!

I wasn't home until the evening, so I started this with two hours to spare before Day 3. I finished it on Day 3 in the afternoon, and I really really loved it. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a good contemporary romance!

I told Emery Lord how brilliant her book is and she tweeted me back saying that she thought I had a pretty name! (*cue fangirling*) It would be so cool if she used my name in one of her books—I've never seen my name in a book before.

LOOK, a book actually off my TBR! I'm making really good progress, as you guys can tell :p

I started If I Stay by Gayle Forman a couple of hours ago (around 7) but I didn't get very far because I decided to take a nap. I've been meaning to read it for a while because the movie is coming out at the end of August, so I borrowed it from the library. I haven't watched the movie trailer because I'm afraid I'll ruin it parts of it for myself, but I already know that Chloe Grace Moretz is playing Mia, the main character.

Side note: I'm not really feelin' this cover. I liked the original one a lot more, but maybe I'll change my mind after I read it. What do you guys think about it? Or better question—what do you think about cover changes in general?

  1. Well done!
    I'm jealous now because I really want a copy of Open Road Summer.

  2. Great reading progress!
    I am just at bad to sticking to TBRs, but for some reason I can't stop making them. Open Road Summer looks good, maybe I'll give it a try for a summer-y read.
