The One & Only by Emily Giffin

Ok... So let's just be real and call a spade a spade... This month was pop culture on steroids as far as the book choices I made! I feel like I need to get into something more substantial and meatier for the next few months to make up for this pop binge!

So I pressed on with the Divergent series and book 2 still had my interest piqued. I like the main characters and am weary to press on because friends that I know who have read the whole series say that the third book ruins it... I may have to take a while before I get around to the third one, however it is downloaded and waiting on my nook!

Onto Game of Thrones... Last summer I watched the first season with my sister after she had listened to the first book. I was hooked on the show instantly! I wanted to watch the second season but my sister said we had to wait until she listens to the second book which she let me know she wouldn't get around to for awhile what with working full time and being in the final year of her bachelor's degree. So throughout the past year... I've debated... Do I hurry and read the books too? Do I just press on with the show without her? Friends lent me the first book and it sat on my shelf for months before I returned it to them chalking it up to the fact that I just might not want to read them. Then the new season premiered on tv and social media was all a flutter with excitement... So I checked out the audiobook from the library and listened to it everyday. I'm just going to say I like the show WAY more. I don't know if it's because I've never been an audio book type of girl or if it's because I saw the show first or what? We'll see, stay tuned. 

Now for Miss Giffin's new one! Let me just say Lauren Conrad and Candace Bushnell aside, Emily Giffin is my most chick-lit-y author I read and so obviously feelings of it being a guilty pleasure book accompany my excitement and giddy-ness!  This one was all about a girl working at a University and she is obsessed with football! Needless to say, I breezed through this one and 💜'd it! 

What about you? Are you reading anything good? Have any guilty pleasure reads? What do you think of the show vs  books in regards to Game of Thrones?
