Five on Friday - December 8, 2023 ~ Betting on You Book Review, December Most Anticipated Books, New Blurb Yearbook, Exercise Bike and Book Sleeve

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great week! 


Betting on You was received as a review copy

Time for another great book review - this was a young adult romance, and it's a little bit out of my realm; but it was really sweet and great! I don't read a ton of YA romance, but this is recommended for someone who loves 10 Things I Hate About You and She's All That, and I truly had to pick it up with those comps and it was perfect with those in mind! This is set around two main characters with how they meet (and hate each other) two years prior and how they come back together. They somewhat bond on being children of divorce and parents starting to date, throw in a few bets and some hidden feelings and it was a lot of fun. The tension is a little predictable, but I don't mind that! I thought the characters were good and loved their chemistry and connection! It was a lot of fun. 4 stars! 


I thought I would try something new last month and I am sharing my most anticipated reads of the month - December is a quiet month for book releases, but still a couple of ones I'm excited for! 


I'm always excited when I finish another yearbook - I've just completed 2017 and am working on the most recent years now too! Blurb books are always such great quality and I highly recommend them! 


We decided to get an exercise bike for Black Friday - I wasn't fully ready to commit to the cost of a Pelaton, so I went on the more affordable side. We picked the Dmasun Exercise Bike, Indoor Cycling Bike Stationary and it was just around $350 on sale range and it shipped right away, easy for my hubby to put together and simple to ride! All I need! 


Just wanted to share this amazing Book Sleeve my mom made me - it's the most amazing Beauty and the Beast fabric! I absolutely love it. Plus, she made a little notebook from Italy! Adorable! 

I hope you all have a good weekend!
