we drove away from the past, from the present, and straight into our future

I have got to stop waiting so long in between posts!

I finally read a new book!! This is a very big deal because for the past like 2 months I have been in a book slump. I read two great books this summer and I was scared to read another one because I didn't think I would love anything as much as I loved those books. Well I finally found one!! Always Something There to Remind Me by Beth Harbison.  

It is about a women who never really gets over her high school sweetheart. Yes, she moves on with her life and has a child, dates, and has a wonderful job. But when her boyfriend proposes to her, her first thought is of her high school boyfriend (who she hasn't seen in 20 years and had an AWFUL breakup). The book goes back and forth to from past to present and you really understand the characters. Of course she runs into her old boyfriend and that's when things really get good! Read to find out! This book does a great job capturing what its like to lose your first love and how you feel like the world is ending! This book was funny, sweet, sad and had a great ending. It was a book that you really didn't know what was going to happen. You knew what  you wanted to happen but not what would happen. There were so many turns and loops. It was just great! I love books that get you thinking about your own life and this was a book that did it. During the whole book I was thinking about old memories and little things about my life.It also reminds you that you can't live in the past. You have to live in the present and look towards the future. It was an amazing book and it was just what I needed to get me out of my funk. It was just a fun, easy read and I loved it. I would recommend it to anyone. 

I have decided that I'm still not ready to just start reading again so I am going to reread one of my favorite series. Queen of Babble. I'll let you know how it goes.

Keep on reading and go outside!! It is perfect reading weather!
