This is a weekly meme where any one can choose a random book from their Goodreads TBR and highlight it. Once you choose a book and create your post, make sure you link and reference the creator, @Lauren’s Page Turners. Eventually, I will try to find a rhyme or reason to my choices, but for now, each week will feature a random one that I mean to read soon!
This Week’s Selection: 10 Days by KJ Holliday
A hilarious love story featuring an overdramatic city boy and an incomparable girl from the country.
In an attempt to knock out the long-awaited follow-up to his best-selling first novel, Alexander Jones lets his best friend convince him that trekking into the wilderness for a survival boot camp was the only way to get the creative juices flowing.
With the help of a detailed itinerary, Luke, and Luke’s childhood friend, Penny, they’d committed 10 days to help Alex forgo his Urbanite roots and embrace the countryside.
It took a lifetime to get to the mountains where Luke and Penny had camped as kids, and only a second for Alex to know he was out of his element.
In a surprising twist of fate, it also took 10 days for him to fall in love with Penny Foster. The question was, did Penny feel the same way, and what would Luke say when he found out?
This novel is on my current list of ARCs to read. I am very curious to see how this novel will turn out as the premise sounds very enjoyable. There are many elements that make me believe that it will be a very cute story. We have the “two worlds” aspect where one love interest is more city and the other is more country. The outdoor setting has lots of promise as the wilderness can be a great bonding place. We also have that there are three characters involved as the main love interest is childhood friends with the other love interest where there could be obstacles. Finally, there is the set timeline where the two characters are in forced proximity for 10 days and then go back to their own lives and the reader has to see if they will come back together or not. A promising romantic novel that I hope to read in the near future!
