Joyousreads’ [mis]Adventures [2]: Now Reading

Hello.

I haven’t really blogged much this week; I’ve been incredibly busy this past few days. I haven’t been doing much reading as well because I haven’t had the time and to be honest, I haven’t had the appetite. Anyway, husband and I are on a mini-vacay and I thought this is my one opportunity to actually get some reading done. I brought three books with me on this trip but I’ve only been focusing on two for the most part. 
I brought Margaret From Maine by by Joseph Monninger, which is a love story of a couple ultimately torn by war and what it would take to piece together a broken relationship. It looks like a love triangle is in the offing. And yes, regardless of how much I loathe them, I tend to be more forgiving with love triangles in Adult Fiction. I think there’s a certain maturity with the way they think that I can understand on some level. I haven’t started it yet but I’m hoping to soon. 
Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons. I’m on page 129 of 400 on this book. I’m sorry to say that it’s not as great as the first book so far. But that’s probably because I’ve barely scratched its surface. Ember complains peevishly at every turn which is grating on my nerves. She’s a bit of a Debbie Downer which I can understand to some degree – having just lost her mother. I’m hoping this book will take a turn for the good, otherwise, it’s a three so far. 
The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott. Another Adult Fiction that I’ve always wanted to read – Historical Fiction with the Titanic disaster as the backdrop. It’s surprisingly good and very entertaining. I’ve always wanted to know what the lives of the survivors were like after the disaster and this book highlights a story of some British nobles. I’m on page 157 of 302. I’m slow-going just because as I’ve mentioned previously, I haven’t had the chance to read. 
a very interesting find. 

I found this box of love goodies at our hotel room. We’ve stayed at quite a few hotels in our lifetime but this is the first time I’ve seen this. It’s a box of condoms, lubricant and mints! Why mint, you ask? Well, I’ve used my imagination and the findings may not be suitable for the general audience. If you want to know what they’re for – other than to freshen your breath, that is – hit me up on my email.
so, what are you doing this weekend?
