While You Were Reading by Ali Berg & Michelle Klaus Blog TourI was
Today I bring you a little introduction to a book I have started reading. I was lucky enough to be invited by Simon & Schuster Australia to be part of a blog tour for this adorable Adult Romance/Contemporary Fiction novel by two lovely Australian authors. It is set in Melbourne and I’m really enjoying it so far – that being said, I, unfortunately, haven’t the finished the book so I cannot review it as part of this blog tour but I did take a cute picture of it and thought I could at least bring attention to it to you guys who may be interested in reading it.
Words are messy. Love is messier.
A hilarious, insightful new novel from the creators of Books on the Rail.
Meet Beatrix Babbage – 29-year-old dog-earer of books and accidental destroyer of weddings.
After ruining her best friend’s nuptials, Bea relocates to the other side of the country in search of a fresh start, including meeting new people, living life to the fullest and finally pulling off balayage.
But after a few months, life is more stagnant than ever. Bea’s job is dead-end. Her romantic life? Non-existent. And her only friends are her books, her barista and her cleaning lady.
Then Bea stumbles across a second-hand novel, inscribed with notes. Besotted with the poetic inscriptions, Bea is determined to find the author … and along the way, she finds herself entangled in one hell of a love quadrangle.
Funny, poignant and insightful, While You Were Reading reveals that there’s no such thing as perfection, the value of true friendship and, most importantly, the power of not living in fiction, but still reading it … Often.
A love story for book lovers that celebrates much more than romance.
Thanks again to Simon & Schuster for letting me be part of this blog tour, I just wish I had finished this book earlier enough to review it properly but my review is to come! The book was officially published on July 1st so you sure can find these cute pink covers at your local store if that blurb sounds like a fun read.
Until next time,
