Weekly Recap – Inspired By A Book

GBB Weekly Recap

Hi everyone, how are you? I hope you all are having an amazing weekend. As you can see on the title of this post, I had a great reading week. I just finished a great book I cannot stop to talk about. If you haven’t read On The Way To You by Kandi Steiner, I hope you will someday. It is an amazing read with outstanding, emotional message, which is perfect for those who books whose themes are more than romance. If you love romance, don’t worry. The romance itself is awesome.

Why do I mention this book again? Because of the message. I think everyone should read it. We may know someone who is suffering the same illness or be the one who is. Our understanding and acceptance are important. I’m feeling guilty for not having been aware of this subject soon. When I deeply thought about it, some faces from my past came to my mind. They might have been silently suffering but because of the lack of knowlege, we (I was one of them) couldn’t give what they needed until it was too late.

I hope we can prevent it. It might not be 100% successful but at least there will be extra effort from us.

Anyway, thank you for your sweet wishes for my birthday last week. You guys made my day. I love you all.

Now, back to the weekly recap. Not much happened on the blog other than the weekly features and two book reviews which I commit to post weekly.

Last week on the blog:

On The Way To You by Kandi Steiner Temporary Boyfriend by Shanora Williams  Books That Made Me Cry

‘Recommend Me Books’ feature:

OMG, I cannot believe this. It feels as if it was just yesterday I started this post and now we already have 17 posts with different themes/genres. Yay, thank you so much for your participation and support. I cannot say enough how I appreciate it.

The new feature has been posted. I hope you check it out. This week, we are talking about millionaire/billionaire (rich men) books. It is now limited to ‘men’ but ‘women’ too. I’ve already posted my TOP favorites, I hope you can share yours as well by leaving it on the comment of the post. Looking forward to it.

Billionaires/Millionaires Romance

Books I received, bought, and currently reading:

Last week I got Constant by Rachel Higginson, On The Way To You by Kandi Steiner, and the first four books of The Tempest series by Michelle Mankin (A gift from Lexxie at (Un)Conventional Bookviews. Thank you, hon.). I just finished On The Way To You and am currently reading Constant.

    Glad you had a good week (and birthday too)! And yes your Recommend Me feature is doing awesome. That was a great idea BTW abd such a cool resource for anyone looking for recs.

    It seems like a good recommendation you have 🙂
    And even though you love romance books the best, I will say that I finished a book that made me cry yesterday 😀 although I really mean I finished a series. It’s fantasy, His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. I can’t believe that ending. My feels!!!
