Reading RoundUp #46
Since I shared our big news (and am now solidly in the second trimester), my reading habit is slowwwly picking back up. I’ve found the best way to ease back in is lots and lots of Young Adult! So, my list today is full of that genre – easy, fun reads I can finish in a day or two. Also I’m linking up with Modern Mrs Darcy’s Quick Lit in October!
This week’s Reading Roundup!
Work Book (for lunch time reading):
Love and Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch – I stumbled across this while scrolling through Scribd and thought the premise sounded entertaining. A teen girl is shipped off to Italy to live with a dad she didn’t know existed. Lots of adventures ensue! I finished this in two days because I was so excited to find out the next part of the story. Plus, the descriptions of Florence are wonderful.
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon – I came across this book at the library and remembered seeing the trailer for the movie a year or two ago, so I figured I’d give it a shot. It was surprisingly entertaining and I loved that I didn’t see the ending coming. I’m curious whether the movie is any good…
eBooks (reading on Scribd):
Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han – I’m seriously considering signing back up for Netflix so I can watch the adaptation of the first book in this series! I realized I never finished the third book, so I’m reading it now. It’s just adorable. I love all of these characters so much!
From Around the Web:
Benefits of Growing Up with a Large Home Library – The Smithsonian investigated a link between being surrounded by books and proficiency in literacy, numeracy, and information communication technology! Now I have even more reasons to buy more books!
By the Book with Reese Witherspoon – The NY Times chats with Reese about her reading habits, favorite classics, and other bookish topics!

Interesting post on growing up with a great big library and its huge impact on so much of who we are. I’m sure we could add to that list!
Thanks for the link, Rachel. And blessings to you as you wait for little Kamery’s arrival. What a gorgeous name!
Congratulations on your baby news! And I love that you categorize your reads based on location- when and where you read. Such a fun was to think about it. I tend to read one book at a time but I am always jealous of people who are able to read like you do.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before on Netflix was so good! I didn’t read the books (YA can be so meh to me) but the movie was adorable.
What an awesome selection of books! I agree that the ending in Everything, Everything was unexpected. I can’t wait to watch the movie. My sister, who hasn’t read the book, said the movie is very good.
Love and Gelato sounds very cute! Thanks for the recommendation.
