Go on a Blind Date...With a Book!

I have never been on a blind date. It's one of those dating milestones that I completely missed out on... but I've seen enough Sex and the City episodes to know that they are entirely overrated.  

But the thought of being surprised is always fun so that's what inspired my Go On A Date with a Book idea...because let's face it, if I did have a night to do anything I want, I'd probably end up snuggled on the couch with a good book instead of going anywhere, especially on a blind date.

So let's have some fun, shall we? Simply read the quick peak inside each of the books below and if you find one that intrigues you, click to find out more about the book!  I chose random books among my favorites or ones that are always my go-to for recommendations. You never know what you might find! 






Are you in love yet? Let me know if any of these sparked your interest and if you added them to your "to-read" list! 

And also, can we just share a little hallelujah that it's finally Friyay? This weekend, I'm hanging out with little Lucy, shopping for a very special wedding coming up and finishing up Sunday's on the Phone with Monday. I'm listening to The Flood Girls on audible right now, which is a super fun story. Next up on my list is Where'd You Go Bernadette?, which has been on list for literally years and I finally picked up a copy at the Austin airport last week. 


  1. What a fun concept! I'll definitely have to give a few of these a try!

    I'll often stumble upon a book and start reading without looking it up in Goodreads. I love the surprise!

  7. Fun! Our library does this once or twice a year with mixed results.

  8. Love this digital version! Cool idea. A book club I am apart of did this during one of the meets and it was so much fun :)

  9. Sunday's on the Phone with Monday sounds really interesting and a nice read to me. Thank you for mentioning it! I've just added it to my Want to Read list on Goodreads

  10. This is such a fun post idea! If it's okay with you, could I try a post like this?
    I'm not sure if you're aware, but there actually IS a website for this. :-)

Book Review: Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

"When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens."

My review of Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.

This book will definitely be on my best of 2018 reading list!

This slow and steady escape in to the marshlands of the North Carolina coast in the 1960s is indulgent and memorizing. Owens takes you on two adventures: one is trying to solve the murder of a young man whose body was found at the bottom of a fire tower with no clues on how he died.

The other is the life of Kya Clark, a young girl left behind by her family and raising herself completely alone. Her skill, bravery and acute attention to the natural world that surrounds her kept my attention. Her marsh home is the only thing that she trusts and when one young man shows her compassion by visiting her and teaching her how to read, she begins to see a side of life and love that she never knew existed. As she grows up, Kya becomes one with the …

Book Review: The Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand

The best book of the summer! 

Why I loved it: The setting of Nantucket is impeccably described. I could smell the salty sea air, I could taste the lobster rolls and I could hear the wave tides coming in. I loved the cast of characters. They are a motley crew of loveable and hateable characters, people I could picture being friends with and others I wanted to shove. They were introduced quickly but the fact that you get to read various points of views make the story line easy to follow. I could picture them so clearly in my mind. 
It's a roller coaster of a novel- first you think a young couple is in love and on the verge of happily ever after. They are rich, talented and envied. Hundreds of people are coming to their lavish wedding and they are the envy of everyone around them. And then there is a tragedy: the bride finds her maid of honor dead on the beach, the morning of her wedding. 
Everything starts to unravel after that point. Secrets that you WILL NOT see coming reveal the…

The Start of My 2019 Reading List

It's going to be hard to beat 2018's reading list but here is a great start! Here are just a few of the books that will be on my reading list at the beginning of this year! 

Elsey Come Home by Susan Conley, Out January 15, AA Knopf 

From the widely praised author of Paris Was the Place–a shattering new novel that bravely delves into the darkest corners of addiction, marriage, and motherhood. 

The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin, Out February 2, William Morrow 
It begins in a big yellow house with a funeral, an iron poker, and a brief variation forever known as the Pause: a free and feral summer in a middle-class Connecticut town. Caught between the predictable life they once led and an uncertain future that stretches before them, the Skinner siblings—fierce Renee, sensitive Caroline, golden boy Joe and watchful Fiona—emerge from the Pause staunchly loyal and deeply connected. Two decades later, the siblings find themselves once again confronted with a family crisis that tests the …
