Book I’m Currently Reading (Is My Book Rut Over?), Coffee I’m Currently Drinking (Delicious), 1 Thing Making Me Happy

Book Coffee Happy’s newest series where I share the book I’m currently reading, the coffee I’m currently drinking, and 1 thing that is currently making me happy!

Beautiful old books I came across while at an antique store a few weeks ago!

Book I’m Currently Reading:

So I THINK my book rut miiiiiiight just be over?

Goodreads Synopsis of The Gungle {Steven Rowley}:

Patrick, or Gay Uncle Patrick (GUP, for short), has always loved his niece, Maisie, and nephew, Grant. That is, he loves spending time with them when they come out to Palm Springs for weeklong visits, or when he heads home to Connecticut for the holidays. But in terms of caretaking and relating to two children, no matter how adorable, Patrick is honestly a bit out of his league.

So when tragedy strikes and Maisie and Grant lose their mother and Patrick’s brother has a health crisis of his own, Patrick finds himself suddenly taking on the role of primary guardian. Despite having a set of “Guncle Rules” ready to go, Patrick has no idea what to expect, having spent years barely holding on after the loss of his great love, a somewhat-stalled career, and a lifestyle not-so-suited to a six- and a nine-year-old. Quickly realizing that parenting—even if temporary—isn’t solved with treats and jokes, Patrick’s eyes are opened to a new sense of responsibility, and the realization that, sometimes, even being larger than life means you’re unfailingly human.

I’ll post my thoughts when I finish reading!

Coffee I’m Currently Drinking:

Delicious coffee while watching the new season of Nailed It with my kids (Do any of you watch it? We LOVE Nailed It over here!)

Currently Making Me Happy:

I write notes in my kids’ lunchboxes every day and about once a week I sneak a little present in there, too. These were last week’s lunch surprises! They were a hit!

Happy Friday (almost…it’s currently 10:00 PM on Thursday)! I hope your weekend is filled with love and BOOKS!

  1. Your coffee cup makes me think. Maybe I should get rid of all the dumb old cups and get some fun new ones. Currently, I drink from the same winnie the pooh mug every day. When I pick it up, I remember my oldest son touching carefully and saying “hot” in his baby voice…sniff…twenty years ago.
