I really love this book written by Rainbow Rowell (you can read my review here), and right now the ebook is only $1.99 USD on Amazon Kindle (which is an amazing deal).
Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It’s company policy.) But they can’t quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O’Neill can’t believe this is his job now—reading other people’s e-mail. When he applied to be “internet security officer,” he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers—not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.
When Lincoln comes across Beth’s and Jennifer’s messages, he knows he should turn them in. He can’t help being entertained, and captivated, by their stories. But by the time Lincoln realizes he’s falling for Beth, it’s way too late to introduce himself. What would he even say…?

Florence and Leon have never met. Florence is a swimming instructor. She has a small problem with her lungs: it’s as if she’s breathing through a straw. Leon is an insurance salesman. He has a small problem with his eyes: it’s as if he’s seeing the world through a straw. One day Florence and Leon bump into each other, literally, and this mishap turns their lives upside down. Over slushy drinks with proper straws, Florence and Leon find out how their differences make them alike.
This lovely picture book tells a story about two people who meet one day and they seem to “click” immediately, they share stories of their own disabilities (Florence has a problem with her lungs and Leon has a problem with his eyes) and try to relate to each other.
The romance is sweet and the illustrations are beautiful. This is a children’s book but I think teens and adults would enjoy it too.

“I received a copy of this Ebook from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.”
Recently I realized that I have an incredible large amount of books in my Kindle Library (the number is in the thousands) and decided to organize more of them into Collections, so is easier to locate them based on a certain criteria.
One the books I found while doing that is the princess saves herself in this one by Amanda Lovelace and is the original version published on 2016 (the book was published on 2017 by Andrews McMeel Publishing).
Here’s the synopsis:
From Amanda Lovelace, a poetry collection in four parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, and you. The first three sections piece together the life of the author while the final section serves as a note to the reader. This moving book explores love, loss, grief, healing, empowerment, and inspiration.
the princess saves herself in this one is the first book in the “women are some kind of magic” series.
This a short book (perfect to read during a break or on your commute), the princess saves herself in this one is a book full of wonderful poetry and it made me experiment different feelings with the turn of every page.
This book is raw, is emotional, I absolutely loved it and I can’t recommend it enough.

This year is the 10th Anniversary of Twilight and my hubby and I could finally travel to make our own Twilight Themed Road Trip including: Port Angeles, Forks and La Push in WA.
The people at the Forks Chamber of Commerce was incredible nice and helpful, we had an amazing time and will definitely be back during a Summer to visit more places (we only had 4 days for the trip including the time we spent driving).
Here is a collage including some of the pics from that trip (I’m also including one of the movie poster that was released for the 10th year Anniversary).
