‘A Sunday well spent brings a week of content!’ I spent my Sunday mostly sleeping after a super busy night shift ☎️🚒. I have however planned a healthy dinner and snacks for tonight’s night shift hoping it spurs me on to have a good week! There is nothing like the first day in the year of nice weather (yesterday) to make you realise you need to get rid of some weight! Who’s jumping on the wagon with me tomorrow?? X

Blind date with a book. 📚 How often do you do this?
I picked up this book at the library recently without knowing anything about it. I just read the back cover and then part of the first page and I knew I had to bring it home.

I usually look up reviews on Goodreads before checking out a book or buying it. I find GR can be misleading though. I've decided that every month or every second month I'm going to pick up a book for which I haven't seen any reviews. Just like the good old days.

So about the book...
I'm enjoying it tremendously so far. It centers around 9/11 but it's about much more than that. It's a beautifully written, lyrical, character driven novel that has an ethereal quality to it.

I haven't marked it on Goodreads, I'll only mark it once I'm done and have written my review! Don't tell me anything about it if you've read it - I don't want to know 🙃📚 .

I love Little Indie Bookstores and couldn’t pass up hitting Another Read Through when I picked up the Blue Star Donuts on Mississippi Avenue — don’t judge a book by its cover is going to be a theme night at my house...deciding if it will be a Moms Bookclub thing or a Tween/Teen thing...and now my husband wants in! I picked up one book for me (Historical Fiction) and one book for my mom (Mystery). These will be the best blind dates we’ve had in years!!!

My first blind date book! Thanks to @bookfacestores 😍#book #bookworm #blinddatebook

So I finally got around to reading my #blinddatebook. I am pretty close to finishing "book 1" and I must say that my opinion of this book has went from exciting and creepy to annoyed and boring. Mae is such a doormat of a character. The way she lets everyone just talk down to her and use her is very enraging. I got this far, and I will keep reading. But I no longer feel for this character since she clearly has no mind of her own. #thecircle

Day three of #marchmeetthemaker and the topic is:- favourite to make. For me I love putting the gift boxes together, each item is wrapped up or placed into the box with care and attention to detail. When I stick the tissue paper down with a sticker and tie the box up with string I always think of the person I’m sending it too, sometimes adding their personal note and wondering how they will feel when they open their box. I especially love hearing reviews of boxes given as gifts and how they were received! X #giftbox #marchmeetthemaker #perfectdate #bookdate #blinddatebook

Today is Day Three of #marchmeetthemaker and the topic is: How you started? After a friend showed me a #blinddatebook she bought from holiday I instantly wanted to buy one....but after lots of searching the internet found that I couldn’t buy one in the UK =💡 I’ve always loved books and felt that this was a concept that I loved enough to turn into a business of my own. I started by wrapping all of my favourite books and rocking up at a craft fair just 2 weeks after! The response and feedback from people was amazing and fuelled me to the next step of selling online. I work full time shifts alongside running my business and have two small children-as you can imagine it’s not been easy at times but looking back it’s lovely to see how far we have come! Thanks to you all for your support xxx ❤️❤️

I wouldn't normally have selected this book, but my local library was celebrating Library Lovers Day with some 'blind date books' (books wrapped up in brown paper), and I decided to give one a whirl. A romance set in both 1849 and 2009, the author manages to switch between the two worlds well. The characters are mostly likeable and relatable, which makes this book an easy read. -

@goodreads blurb

2009: When Julia hears that she has inherited a house outside London from an unknown great-aunt, she assumes it's a joke. She hasn't been back to England since the car crash that killed her mother. But when she arrives at Herne Hill to sort through the house--with the help of her cousin Natasha and sexy antiques dealer Nicholas--bits of memory start coming back. And then she discovers a pre-Raphaelite painting, hidden behind the false back of an old wardrobe, and a window onto the house's shrouded history begins to open...
1849: Imogen Grantham has spent nearly a decade trapped in a loveless marriage to a much older man, Arthur. But everything changes when three young painters come to see Arthur's collection of medieval artifacts, including Gavin Thorne, a quiet man with the unsettling ability to read Imogen better than anyone ever has. When Arthur hires Gavin to paint her portrait, none of them can guess what the hands of fate have set in motion.
From modern-day England to the early days of the Preraphaelite movement, Lauren Willig's That Summer takes readers on an un-put-downable journey through a mysterious old house, a hidden love affair, and one woman's search for the truth about her past--and herself. -

Made a trip to @boneshakerbooks to get “Her Body and Other Parties” and decided to get a blind date book too. Unwrapped it over coffee at Precision Grind and found it’s a Lois Lowry book I’ve never read. I didn’t know there was a companion to “The Giver” and I’m so excited to read it! #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #reading #toreadlist #supportlocalbookstores #blinddatewithabook #blinddatebook

My kind of blind date ❤️. On the forreal though, simply full of love and gratitude towards others today (and every day). Sending out positive vibes and wishing you all happiness in your own journey. *Full transparency, I’m not a big Valentines “go all out” type of person....I prefer the daily gentle reminders of care and love we can express towards each other, but taking a moment to intentionally pause and appreciate others feels good. I am grateful for you friends and that our paths crossed on this journey called life. #HappyValentinesDay #ValentinesDay2018 #DiaDelAmorYAmistad #BlindDateBook #MissionSFBookstore

#ReadRomanceChallenge Day 14: Blind Date:
Okay, not gonna lie, this was a hard one and I think that I’m actually cheating with my pick. I chose Searching for Perfect by @authorjenniferprobst. Granted it’s more about a matchmaking service but, there is technically blind dating involved right?!? ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Searching for Perfect on Amazon —> http://amzn.to/2CkrXd6.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
The up-and-coming matchmaking agency Kinnections is the hottest thing to hit Verily, New York—just like Kennedy Ashe, social director for the service she owns with her two best girlfriends. A coach, consultant, and cheerleader rolled into one super-sizzling package, Kennedy creates dream dates, encourages singles to shine, and never refuses a challenge—not even Nate Ellison Raymond Dunkle, rocket scientist, nerd extraordinaire, and Kennedy’s newest client.

Kennedy vows to work her magic and transform this hot mess in a lab coat with a disastrous relationship track record into the most wanted man on the Verily dating scene. If only she could turn the wand on herself…though she radiates confidence and sex appeal, Kennedy harbors deep-seated insecurities from a tormented past and lifelong struggle with weight issues. When she realizes she and Nate are cut from the same cloth and might be perfect together, can Kennedy learn to let her heart lead the way? Or will her fears sentence her to the sidelines as Nate finds love—with someone else?

**What is a BOOK DATE?** Choose a fiction book based on just 4 words or choose a genre (4 words are added when wrapped) each Book Date comes with a postcard explaining the concept and a hot drink option! ❤️❤️It’s like a first date when you receive your book, all you know about it are 4 little words....once you unwrap it and start reading and finding out more..will you fall in love or not? 👌🏻❤️ #perfectdate #bookdate #blinddatebook #fate #destiny #bookmatch

Studies show that blind dates with books are 110% more successful than any other kind.😉
These books are all single and looking for love! Take your blind date out for coffee, a movie, a nice dinner, a show, a trip, some brunch (they have a wide variety of interests!) and enjoy a rom-com-worthy Valentine’s Day. 😎❤️📖
