- Read to Me (children’s picture books – you get 4 with this subscription)

In short, it’s a great way to get introduced to some awesome new reads in your preferred category/genre of books!
A lovely quote that captures a lot right now… (even though it might be hard).
No synopsis this time of either book, but a cute note from BookCase.Club. 🙂
Summary from Goodreads: “Lucy and Owen meet somewhere between the tenth and eleventh floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they’re rescued, they spend a single night together, wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is restored, so is reality. Lucy soon moves to Edinburgh with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father.
Lucy and Owen’s relationship plays out across the globe as they stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and—finally—a reunion in the city where they first met.
A carefully charted map of a long-distance relationship, Jennifer E. Smith’s new novel shows that the center of the world isn’t necessarily a place. It can be a person, too.”
Aw, this sounds like a sweet, yearning kind of love. I chose the Booking for Love this month instead of the Thrill Seeker option because I wanted something easy, light, and fun to read so that I can just kind of relax into. 😄 It’ll be good to read a book from the Thrill Seeker case last month and then one from the Booking for Love to change it up a little.
Summary from Goodreads: “Darcy Archer works in a small bookstore in Manhattan. A daydream believer, she refuses to settle for anything less than being swept off her feet by the perfect man… literally.
One day, when cycling to work, Darcy accidentally crashes into a sharply dressed gentleman walking his dog. He is knocked out cold, rushed to hospital and the poor pup gets left behind. Wracked with guilt, Darcy takes the dog and makes plans to reunite him with his owner, Aidan. As she discovers the mysterious stranger’s world of books, travel, adventure and all the wonderful things she’s ever dreamed about, Darcy builds a picture of this man and wonders if he could be THE ONE…
But does fantasy match reality? What happens when Prince Charming wakes up? Will Aidan be the happy ever after she’s always imagined?”
This one sounds like a Korean drama at first glance, but upon scrolling through the reviews on Goodreads, it looks like this book has more to offer and that the summary given doesn’t quite do it justice! I’m intrigued and this sounds like the perfect book to pick up around the holidays as more than one reviewer has said that it gives off a great Christmas vibe. 😀
Overall enjoyment: So glad I chose the Booking for Love case this month! These two books both offer something a little different, but are both the kind of heart-warming, happy, wonderful kind of reads that I like to indulge in. 🙂 Since the holidays are coming up, I’m definitely more interested in “A Gift to Remember”, but I have no doubt that “The Geography of You and me” is also amazing!
