Books are my happy place. One of my favorite things to do is to sit down with a good book and let it just take me away to a different world. While I love doing other things sometimes the highlight of my day is getting a moment to read is my favorite. A book is a great way to just forget my problems. I get to read about someone else’s life. I just get to focus on someone else. A good romance, mystery, or thriller is just what the doctor ordered. I have been told that the kitchen could be on fire and I wouldn’t notice if I am caught up in a book. Ha ha ha!
I have read 3 books so far this summer. I am now on my 4th. It is called The Marriage Pact. The Marriage Pact is about a newlywed couple named Alice & Jake. Alice is a former singer in a band turned lawyer and her husband Jake is a psychologist. They are invited to join an exclusive group called The Pact as a gift from one of Alice’s clients. The main goal of the group is to keep marriages happy and together. They have a few rules that they have to follow like whenever your spouse calls you have to answer the phone. While at first they loved the group Jake and Alice’s opinion soon changes when one of them breaks the rules. Once the rules are broken they discover that they can’t just walk away from The Pact. Once you join you are a member for life.
I just started this book but I can tell you it already has me taking it everywhere with me. I took it with me on a hike yesterday. I will read anywhere I can. A good book is great for a long car ride. Our destination was 2 hours away. So I keep myself entertained with a book or two. So this book was perfect for this trip. I can’t wait to see what happens with Jake & Alice. I want to know who broke the rules and if they get out of The Pact. The Marriage Pact seems like it will definitely have me not putting it down for a minute.
I would love to know what you think of the books far. You can order The Marriage Pact simply by clicking here.
Now THIS sounds like an interesting read. In a world where commitment in the traditional since is frowned upon, I find this topic refreshing.
I hope you were able to read it.
Reading is one of my favorite past times as well. The Marriage Pact sounds like a great read. I think I will add it to my list of Books to Read. Thank you for sharing this.
I hope you were able to read it.
I use to be an avid reader but with kids, hubby, full time job plus entrepreneurship I just don’t have the time but I need to carve out time because reading forces you to use your imagination and takes you away. I think I’m going to Barnes n nobles today. Thanks

This sounds like such a good book. I’m interested to hear what other rules they make in the pact. I think I’m going to have to get this book.
I hope you were able to read it.

The Marriage Pact sounds like a great read. I love books that start off one way and then just throw you. Those are the best kinds!
I am a bookworm since I can remember.
I can not wait to get away from the city and read some good books.
I love running into fellow book lovers.
Books are wonderful aren’t they? An escape from the world, a chance to put all your cares aside, and just get lost in another world. There is never a bad time to read a book. I love finding a quiet place in nature to read my favorite book.

One thing I promised myself recently was to get back into reading more. Well reading Again and MORE OFTEN.
Thank you for this reminder! Reading truly can take us away, lower blood pressure and excite the imagination!

I never knew there were so many benefits. I am definitely gonna make sure to take a few minutes to myself and read.
Oooh this book sounds so good and I’m trying to make myself get back into leisurely reading. Definitely checking it out on Amazon!
I hope you had a chance to get it.

I don’t read as much as I should but when I do it;s not often fiction. I guess I figure I have enough drama in my own life to worry about something that’s not real, actual drama. LOL Maybe you can suggest some fiction I may like.
I completely understand. I am trying to expand beyond fiction because it is so easy to get caught up in a fictional world. I am looking for motivational books and self help.
I finished The Marriage Pact a while ago (got it early…blogger perk!) and it was AMAZING!! I love a good mystery and this one had me on the edge of my seat!!

The Marriage Pacts sounds like an interesting book. I will have to check it out on my Kindle.
I haven’t finished it yet but definitely plan on completing it.
I miss reading! I used to read a lot, but when I started working again, I barely had the time to sit and read. This sounds like a great book.

I have a car ride coming up where will be traveling to and from the destination for four days. Need to pick out some books to read while my wife shares the driving. Thinking about trying to find some stories we’ll both like and get the audio versions for us both to enjoy.
I’ve been thinking about giving some audio books a try. Haven’t listened to an audiobook in years.

I love reading during my spare time and it pains me to not be able to read at least one book throughout the month! This sounds like a lovely recommendation. I’d love to get my hands on a copy!
Thank you for stopping by!

I just finished reading a Terry McMillan novel over the weekend while I was out of town. I have a couple more around the house that I need to get to before my summer vacation is over. Nothing like a great book!
I would love to know the title of that book. I am always looking for new books to add to my reading list.
I miss reading so much! I used to try to squeeze it in whenever I could, but I think now I mostly blog and clean in my free time! I should get back in the habit of reading, though. This sounds like a good book.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you were able to start reading again.
This sounds like an interesting read and something that I would enjoy too. Marriage is important and I would love to find out how the rest of the story goes. 🙂
I haven’t had a chance to finish yet but I definitely plan on finishing it.
Books make me incredibly happy too! I have not heard of this book before.

This sounds like an interesting book! I would love to check this out. Thanks for sharing.
I hope you were able to give this book a try.
I’ll have to get that book. I love a good read.
I think it is definitely worth giving a read.
I used to read all the time but when in college…It’s like it doesn’t happen and during the summers I may get through only one. I would love to pick up and start reading again. This was motivation!!
I hope you have gotten a chance to read a book or two.
I miss those days when I used to read a lot. I should try and get back into it, its really relaxing.
I hope you do. I would love to get some book suggestions from you or even read the same book and discuss it.
Terri Beavers says
I read constantly so I’ll have to check this out. I’ve not heard of The Marriage Pact before but it sounds right up my alley.

I love reading as well. I’ve been reading since I was young child. I remember my mom was always telling me to put books down so I could do what she asked me to do. I haven’t read a book in a long time but it reminds me that I need to go to to the library. The Marriage Pact sounds like a great book.
This book looks so interesting. I need to add the Marriage Pact to my reading shelf seriously I think it would be interesting to see what was actually broken in the pact.
