Reading for Two: Five Book Pairings

I’m nothing if not consistent, which means I’m still running a little behind this month. It might be the third week of November, but I’m still stuck in the second week of Nonfiction November.

If you’d like to participate—there’s definitely still time!—head on over to their sites, check out the topics for the month, and be sure to look at the weekly link-up to find other participants.

The Time of Our Lives by Portia MacIntosh

Luca is fine attending the wedding of another college pal. Sure, she’s had to get used to being the only one in their clique not married, engaged, or otherwise romantically occupied, but really, that’s okay.
