Book Sparks #SwipeRightOnReading Book Reveal #2!

Book Sparks #SwipeRightOnReading Book Reveal #2!

This Saturday is brought to you by all my favourite things: morning reading, hot yoga, brunch + tequila with besties, and a @booksparks #SpringAmbassador#SwipeRightOnReading reveal. Have I nailed this day? Yes I have. 📖🍹📚

And the fantastic novella that is hiding in this package? The Elegant Out! I think this one will be a delightful quick read and that settles my evening plans. 💕📖

Synopsis:

After escaping an abusive relationship, Elizabeth finds herself struggling with immense feelings of inadequacy. Stuck in a small-town, eight to five job, she dreams of characters and plot lines―when she’s not thinking about babies. She wants another. Gabe, her love, does not. When her writing coach praises her talent and encourages her to write, Elizabeth dives in, resolved to pursue her dream of publishing once again and put her ideas about pregnancy on the back burner. But then everyone around her, from her cousin to the couple-that-never-would, starts announcing their own pregnancies, and her baby obsession comes rushing back―accompanied by a deep depression.

Frustrated with Gabe’s refusal to give her another child―as well as his questioning of her motives―Elizabeth finds herself considering a separation. Writing, meanwhile, becomes a tool for beating herself up over her inability to find her voice. Ultimately, she must face an abusive past to answer a complex question: Is having babies the answer, or simply a distraction from her immense feelings of inadequacy and fear―an elegant out? If she fails to uncover her truth, Elizabeth fears she might remain strangled, her voice squelched forever.

QOTD: What book is being released this May that you are most excited for? I have a few, but one that stands out is Only Ever Her by @marybethwhalen which is ALSO our May @northernlightsreads pick, so be sure to order your copy!!!! 📖💕
