I know it has been a while since I have shared anything bookish here and for that I apologize. I have fallen off the wagon so to speak (or is it I got back on? I can never remember) due to life getting very busy so it has been a crazy few weeks to say the least. I haven’t posted recently but I have been reading when I can and according to Goodreads I am ahead of my reading schedule! I am here now to post and ready to gush about books because I’m a bookworm and I am shameless when it comes to getting excited about reading.
I was recently sent a digital ARC through Netgalley and all opinions are my own. The book that I finished very recently is called Together Forever by Sian O’Gorman and it was such a sweet story! Reading this book was similar to having a hot cup of tea after a long chilly day which is to say it was relaxing and heartwarming!
This was such a lovely story about an Irish woman named Tabitha who lives in Dublin who is a Mom, Politician’s wife, daughter and Principal of an all girl’s school. She loves her daughter, being a principal and spending time with her best friend Clodagh. Her husband may be more absent than present as he’s usually off traveling for work, they are more room mates than a married couple and her mother in law is not an easy person to get along with but all things considered, Tabitha thinks she has a pretty good life and she’s okay with how things are.
Then an old flame shows up back in town, throws a monkey wrench into the works and Tabitha realizes that maybe she isn’t quite so content with a lackluster marriage, that she’s not ready to throw in the towel on having excitement in life and that sometimes life has a way of surprising you.
I really enjoyed this book especially since it was set in Ireland which I am always up for reading about. This book was equal parts exciting, mysterious, funny and soothing which all adds up to a wonderful book that reminded me why these kinds of books always pull me in. I am looking forward to reading more by this author and hopefully more about Ireland!
Sian is actually publishing another book based in Ireland called Always and Forever that is due out May 1st which is less than a month away! It sounds like it may be more somber than Together Forever but I don’t mind and have added it to my to be read list pile. I swear every month my to be read list keeps being added to by leaps and bounds!
Well that concludes my bookish ramblings for the time being. I hope to be back soon with more bookish ramblings whether that be a blog about a book I’ve read or my random bookish thoughts. Either way, you can be certain I will be gushing about books in some form or another. So until then:
