Back To School...

Happy Back-to-School Day!!! My kids have started grades 4, 6, 8, and 10 (they're getting so old!) and it's been quiet around the house again. I've jumped back into my routine and I already feel super productive today. A lot of that probably has to do with waking up at 7 am instead of 9. Those two hours really make a difference! (Although I love when I get to sleep in.) 

The last couple of weeks of summer were pretty slow on the reading front. There's a reason, a new obsession of mine, which I'll go into later this week. So in the past couple of weeks I only read these two books:

OF METAL AND WISHES by Sarah Fine. This has been on my TBR pretty much since I first got Goodreads. I really enjoyed this book, though it was a little slow me for me at times. I especially loved the similiarities with The Phantom of the Opera. I felt the author really made that story her own in a very interesting and different way. I'm going to read book 2 (it's a duology I think) pretty soon.

THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL by Maureen Goo. I loved the last book I read by Goo so I had to pick this one up. It was also awesome. I loved the most how the LI was such a good, genuine guy, and I loved the personality flaws of the MC. She'd probably be considered unlikeable, but it was fun reading about her and getting inside her head. I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE is still my fave, but this one comes pretty close.  

I feel a bit bad that this is all I've read in two weeks, but I've fallen hard for my new obsession and can't really help it. I just need to find a balance where I'm getting time for both. Here's hoping!
