I saw the Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie this weekend and loved it so much it has ruined me for other movies for a while. So this is the perfect time for a “what I’ve been reading” post.
Finished Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas
Loved it. Gave it 5 stars on Goodreads. I read on Kleypas’ website that this book was a finalist for the RITA Award “Best Novel With Strong Romantic Elements”. I’m assuming it wasn’t considered straight up romance because the story was also about the main character’s journey out of the trailer park and becoming head of the household at such a young age. And more than one man played a role in her development. I really love the Strong Romantic Elements category.
Currently reading Veronica Mars: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas (the creator of Veronica Mars) and Jennifer Graham.
If you were a rabid fan of the TV show like I was, you will really enjoy the first novel. It picks up right after the movie ends and has all the favorite characters plus some surprises. Well-written with the same snappy dialogue, too.
Am listening to City of Bones: The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.
Why have I never tapped into this audiobook thing before? Seriously! I’ve been listening to it while I drive, while I press clothes, while I do yoga! It’s so great!
What have you been reading?

Speaking of paperbacks, this is what the one I bought from Target looks like.
Then I saw this on Goodreads. It is the original cover from the author’s self-published edition.
I really wish I had the one with this cover.
