FRIDAY STARS – Your Weekly Must Knows 09/01/16

Friday Stars.13

I have officially become a soccer mom.  I accepted that I was a baseball mom in the spring, but soccer feels like a completely different animal.  Ironically I have found myself watching my oldest son play yet another sport that I am beyond clueless about.  Rules? *shrugs and goes off to search Google*  Names for when they score a point……ummm it’s clearly not a touchdown…… *again goes off to search Google*  Moments like this are just a reminder that my Goodreads bubble name has some validation lol.  And I have to give a huge shout out to my co-blogger Chelsea.  My husband was in meetings and I had no clue how in the world to do socks and shin guards.  So here I am texting Chelsea, sending pictures and being all HELP ME how does this even work?!  Thankfully she gave me the low-down. ♥  Book friends are the best friends, thank you Chelsea!  But so far it’s been a lot of fun, so I can’t wait to see how the next few months go!

In case you aren’t familiar with our Friday Star Posts, we like to take a look at what’s happened around here in the last week, what’s coming up that we are excited about and anything else that we may have to share!
♥ Enjoy!

For Better or Worse Lauren Layne For Better or Worse (The Wedding Belles #2) by Lauren Layne
Will a budding wedding planner and her bad boy neighbor stop banging heads and start hearing wedding bells in the sexy second novel in USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren Layne’s irresistible new series that marries Sex and the City with The Wedding Planner? When small-town girl Heather Fowler finally gets promoted from assistant to actual wedding planner, she’s determined to make it as one of Manhattan’s elite Wedding Belles. Unfortunately, her first client demands an opulent black-tie affair at the Plaza…in five months’ time. Heather’s days quickly become a flurry of cake tastings, dress-fittings, RSVP cards, and bridal tantrums. But what she’s really losing sleep over is the live music blaring from her playboy neighbor’s apartment all night. Five years ago, Josh Tanner was an up-and-comer on Wall Street, complete with the penthouse and the migraines. But a grim cancer diagnosis made him realize there is more to life than the corner office. If only he could convince his pretty, workaholic neighbor to let loose, too. As Heather lets down her guard, Josh is surprised when he starts falling for the sweet, vulnerable woman hiding beneath those power suits. Soon, it’s Heather’s turn to convince Josh to take the biggest risk of all: love.

my heart and other black holesMy Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
Sixteen-year-old physics nerd Aysel is obsessed with plotting her own death. With a mother who can barely look at her without wincing, classmates who whisper behind her back, and a father whose violent crime rocked her small town, Aysel is ready to turn her potential energy into nothingness.  There’s only one problem: she’s not sure she has the courage to do it alone. But once she discovers a website with a section called Suicide Partners, Aysel’s convinced she’s found her solution—Roman, a teenage boy who’s haunted by a family tragedy, is looking for a partner. Even though Aysel and Roman have nothing in common, they slowly start to fill in each other’s broken lives. But as their suicide pact becomes more concrete, Aysel begins to question whether she really wants to go through with it. Ultimately, she must choose between wanting to die or trying to convince Roman to live so they can discover the potential of their energy together.

  1. Nothing wrong with being a soccer mom! I have no clue anything about soccer either LOL! What is it called when they score a point? Goal, or is that hockey? Sports really aren’t my thing . 😛

    • I was one of those people that never truly pictured myself as a mom, so soccer mom was never a future vision, but now that I am I wouldn’t change it for the world! I couldn’t be more thankful that I’m a mom now. ♥

      Heyyyyyyyy you got it right! It is a goal! I only ever watched Football, so Touchdown is the extent of my point knowledge in sports. Thank you Google ha!

  2. Oh wow, My Heart and Other Black Holes is SO heartbreaking! I’ll be looking out for your review once it’s done.

    • *Spoiler Alert* she loved this book. 🙂 Her review should be posted this Thursday. I still need to pick this book up, hopefully we’ll both love it too!
