This week has breezed by so quickly, this week has been pretty busy for me at work. We are short-handed, so I am working ten-hour days and am so tired haha I haven’t been able to read quite as much as I would like, but I did get some good books read. BUT I was able to watch the new Passionflix feature of “Driven” season two. I actually really liked it and even want to do a rewatch of season one and two together. I am thinking of maybe doing a movie review for it this week. I have so many thoughts on that one there. I have been focusing on cooking more healthier. I was also able to become a part of a small book club for historical romance with Lisa from “Remarkably Lisa” (booktuber) and will be doing a live this month with her and one other romance reader. So fun getting back into the historical genre and we have been having a blast chatting books especially out love for historical romance both old and newly published.

    Oh wow, no wonder you’re tired, that’s a very intense work schedule you’ve got going on there! It’s amazing you’re able to get back into your historical romance passion with others, I hope you enjoy the live! Although I’m not the biggest romance reader myself I do have a strong love for Scotland so I might be up for ‘X Marks the Scot’! I hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂

    We’ve been busy at work too! It’s draining. I look forward to your thoughts on Last Guard. I loved that one. I’ll be picking up Heart Principal soon too. I think I canceled my Passionflix account but maybe I should renew to watch Driven. Is that based on a book series?

    • Lover of Romance

      Yes I adored Last Guard too. Yes Driven is based on the Driven series by K. Bromberg. I can’t wait for Heart Principle.

    Yowsers those are some grueling work hours, but hopefully it is temporary. Good on you for cooking healthier and getting back into your beloved historical romances. I didn’t feel like cooking very much last week because of the heat, but our garden was starting to produce so we had lots of cold fresh stuff. Love that Mary Balogh series you are listening too. The romance discussion on Booktube sounds fun.

    Have a good week, Renee!

    I keep considering getting Passionflix but I’ve been waffling about it for ages. I’m not a TV watcher (at all) and don’t have Netflix or any of the steaming services, but there are a couple movies on Passionflix I would like to see. Especially Wicked by Jennifer Armentrout!
