I Bought This Book and I’ve Heard It’s Awesome.

I Bought This Book and I’ve Heard it’s Awesome.

I was texting with my friend Megan a few weeks ago and she asked me if I’ve yet read this book because she “really enjoyed it” (I hadn’t even heard of it). And then days later, my friend Jeana posted on Insta that it was “hands down one of the best books I’ve read”. Ummm so those are some pretty solid recommendations if you ask me!

Goodreads Synopsis of Things We Never Got Over {Lucy Score}:

Bearded, bad-boy barber Knox prefers to live his life the way he takes his coffee: Alone. Unless you count his basset hound, Waylon.
Knox doesn’t tolerate drama, even when it comes in the form of a stranded runaway bride.

Naomi wasn’t just running away from her wedding. She was riding to the rescue of her estranged twin to Knockemout, Virginia, a rough-around-the-edges town where disputes are settled the old-fashioned way…with fists and beer. Usually in that order.

Too bad for Naomi her evil twin hasn’t changed at all. After helping herself to Naomi’s car and cash, Tina leaves her with something unexpected. The niece Naomi didn’t know she had. Now she’s stuck in town with no car, no job, no plan, and no home with an 11-year-old going on thirty to take care of.

There’s a reason Knox doesn’t do complications or high-maintenance women, especially not the romantic ones. But since Naomi’s life imploded right in front of him, the least he can do is help her out of her jam. And just as soon as she stops getting into new trouble he can leave her alone and get back to his peaceful, solitary life.

At least, that’s the plan until the trouble turns to real danger.

I Bought This Book and I’ve Heard it’s Awesome

I put it on hold at the library but weeks have passed and this book is still not in my hands.

My family is going to a vacation next week and I REALLY want a good book to bring with me…and I think this might just be it.

Sorry, Library, I just can’t wait anymore. We leave on Tuesday! So a quick jaunt to Barnes and Noble yesterday and I am now the proud owner of this lovely book. I hope I love it as much as my friends did!

My first impression: This book is THICK. Very thick. 552 pages thick! And heavy!

While I was at Barnes and Noble yesterday, I sat in their cafe and started working on this blog post!

I finished reading Tomorrow, Tomorrow, and Tomorrow (review coming soon! Spoiler: It’s AMAZING) this morning so I plan on starting Things We Never Got Over tonight. At 552 pages, I think it’s safe to assume I won’t be finished by Tuesday so it will be traveling with me! This actually works out perfectly as I like to bring books on vacations having already started reading them. This way, I can just dive right in while traveling and not have to start the book from scratch and learn all about the characters, the settings, etc. Does anyone else try to always this?!

I’ll post my thoughts on this book when I get back into town. In the meantime, follow Book Coffee Happy on Insta...I’ll be posting stories throughout my trip (and I’ll reveal where I’m going…there’s a crazy story behind our destination)!

Xo,

Jenny

BLOGMAS: My Birthday Visit to Barnes and Noble!

BLOGMAS: My Birthday Visit to Barnes and Noble!

I had a few hours smack in the middle of the day on my birthday all to myself. I debated what to do with my time. Manicure? Maybe. Pedicure? Perhaps. Bookstore? Ummmm YES PLEASE. What a glorious way to spend my special afternoon! Barnes and Noble, here I come!

I drove straight to Barnes and Noble and found…drumroll please…IT. WAS. GONE. Ummm whaaaaat? Has it been THAT long since I last visited??? It’s not a secret that I would rather check out a library book than buy a book aaaaaaany day but still…how did this massive store just GO AWAY and I had no idea???

I found myself doing a Google search for “bookstores near me” (NERD ALERT) and found the closest Barnes and Noble was only 15 minutes away. Phew. I drove straight there, singing Christmas songs aloud in my car the entire time. Glorious.

Oh hello lover.
Gorgeous holiday display as soon as I walked in. I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR SO MUCH!

So the entire reason (ok obvi not the ENTIRE reason) that I went to Barnes and Noble was to buy myself a birthday present. Do any of you do that? I do it every single year, lol.

This was last year’s birthday present to myself:

Love!

So this year I decided that I wanted to buy myself a book and not just any book…but this beautiful Christmas Book:

Considering I had to credit the above photo to Amazon should be a spoiler on what I did NOT buy myself for my birthday, lol. Ugh I cannot find this book! Amazon is sold out, Barnes and Noble is sold out, and my name on the library waitlist seems to be quite far from the top. Grrrr.

They had plenty of Jenny Colgan’s other books in stock! Have you read any? I have not but they all look wonderful!

I DID come across these 2 books which I considered buying but ultimately did not. They both look so good!

Random bookish finds as I wandered aimlessly and happily around the store:

Fur lined tote…how CUTE!
I almost bought this until I decided that it resembled a Christmas tree just a bit too much for this Jew, lol 🙂 However, just looking at this picture makes me think that I made a mistake. It’s so cute! I may need to go back!
Kate Spade. Gorgeous.
Birthday Girl by the pretty wall in the bathroom, lol 😉

Thank you, Barnes and Noble, for an absolutely lovely afternoon. Although I didn’t buy a thing, I so appreciated just being there surrounded by my favorite objects: BOOKS!

What did I end up buying myself for my birthday? Random holiday jammies from Old Navy! I was excited about them until I took them home to try on. They are cut SO WEIRD!!! I l just loved that holiday sweater mug so much that I never even took the time to unfold them in the store. Oops. Lesson learned! Old Navy is so hit or miss and these are most definitely a MISS (although I still do love that holiday sweater mug). Back to the store they will go. I clearly still owe myself a birthday present! Maybe that adorable mug from Barnes and Noble…

Ugh.

If you can’t tell from the above photos, I am 100 percent obsessed with this time of year! Holiday scented candles, Christmas station on Pandora, holiday books, sweaters, scarves. NOW IT JUST NEEDS TO SNOOOOOOOW! MY FAVORITE!!!!
