Fave magazines this week...

I enjoyed the article about Carrie but I don't know that I believe she does her own hair and makeup.  I love her purple eyeshadow though and I'm totally copying it.  My favorite article in Runner's World was "Beyond the Mantra" by Michelle Hamilton. It's about training your brain for endurance, not just your body. Good read!

I also recently finished The House at Tyneford and I really enjoyed it. It rated highly on both Amazon and Good Reads (plus my sister-in-law recommended it); I had to read it!

It started a little slow but I was hooked at page 50 and had to keep reading.  Interesting story and definitely Downton Abbey-esque.  I wish it had a different ending but I also like when authors don't take the easy way out.  Here's Amazon's synopsis.

I downloaded Six Years by Harlan Coben and couldn't get into it, didn't like his writing. It got great reviews though.

Instead I moved on to this, Night Road by Kristin Hannah.  Love it! I believe it was Heidi who recommended Kristin Hannah to me, I can tell I'm going to be a fan.

Any other good recommendations?


  1. Thanks for sharing Courtney - I love new book recs :)

    The Other Side of Gray

  2. I loved Night Road- I usually enjoy Kristin Hannah books. I'm going to have to look up Six Years- it look interesting

  3. I'm with you - not sure that I believe Carrie Underwood does her own hair or make up either. I mean, mine never looks that good ;)

    I do like Kristin Hannah! Good go-to reads! I'm currently reading "Out of the Spin Cycle" by Jenn Hatmaker. I read "7" last summer and have had this one on the nightstand for a while.

  4. I'm not so sure about Carrie doing her own hair & makeup either...but good for her if she does as she always looks amazing!! She is my inspiration for great legs for sure!!

    Always love your book recommendations and will keep these two in mind as well! Thanks for sharing!
