I Should Have Known Better; Part II

When you have been stuck home for awhile you might find that you have some free time to read a good book. That my friends is just what I have been doing! I should have been folding laundry or meal planning but I chose not to. When I picked up Ms Hilderbrand's latest book I knew that I would become the worst house-wife ever but I also knew it would be worth it. And once again Ms Hilderbrand and her novels have "made" me stop doing all the things that I really needed to do. What can I say, her books really are blissful escapes from reality!


 According to Goodreads:  

A summer wedding stirs up trouble on both sides of the family in this new novel from bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand. The Carmichaels and Grahams have gathered on Nantucket for a wedding. Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride's late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter's future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event--but in reality, things are far from perfect.

While the couple-to-be are quite happy, their loved ones find their own lives crumbling. In the days leading up to the wedding, love will be questioned, scandals will arise, and hearts will be broken and healed. Elin Hilderbrand takes readers on a touching journey in BEAUTIFUL DAY--into the heart of marriage, what it means to be faithful, and how we choose to honor our commitments.

Yes this is a total beach read in the middle of winter. But the summer background and the message that family is important works for me no matter what time of year it is!


  1. Gah! I have to add this to my list of Kindle samples to download! I have a big fat book post scheduled for 7 am tomorrow!!!

  3. I have read a lot of her books too! I enjoy her stories, but her descriptions of the Summer get be ready for warmer temps! HAHA.

  5. Ooooh thank you for bringing this to my attention, I loved The Island and can't wait to read this.
