Last night concluded the Stay Home Reading Rush, a readathon that lasted for the past four days. I actually only read for three of the four days because on Thursday I was not in the mood to read anything really.
Friday and Saturday I read The Unhoneymooners by Christina Henry. Early in the first chapter I realized the future love interest is actually her brother-in-law’s brother and that was weirdly in the back of my mind the entire book. I think if it had been any other person as the love interest I would have loved it but that’s just really weird to me.
My other main gripe is that the main character talks about how she’s unlucky but then she also focuses on that, which draws that energy to her. She grew throughout the book and became a more positive person throughout.

Saturday and Sunday I read Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda Holmes, which was not on my original TBR but I wasn’t in the mood to read The Bear and the Nightingale so I took a couple hours to find a book with a house on the cover that sounded good.
Overall this was an enjoyable read. My main problem was that it seemed forced at times and something was just missing from the romantic relationship to make it believable. The friends and family were fine though. While reading it, especially toward the end it seemed like it might have been super therapeutic to write and I think people in that situation might find it relatable.
