“But sometimes you have to be brave. Sometimes you have to show people what’s important in life.”
I’ve lost it. 😦 The only thing in the world I wasn’t supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It’s been in Magnus’s family for three generations. And now, the very same day his parents are coming, I’ve lost it. The very same day. Do not hyperventilate, Poppy. Stay positive!! 🙂
A couple of glasses of bubbly with the girls at a charity do and Poppy’s life has gone into meltdown. Not only has she lost her engagement ring, but in the panic that followed, she’s lost her phone too. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number with the hotel staff. It was meant to be!
Except the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back, and doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading all his messages and wading into his personal life. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, phone messages and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents, can things get any more tangled?

This is the last Wednesday of June. I can’t believe that half of the year is already gone. How is your reading so far? I want to give you an update about my reading and of course, WWW Wednesday is the best way to do it.
Always thankful to Sam @samannelizabeth for hosting this.
If you want to join, all you have to do is answer these three questions:
1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you’ll read next?

So I’ve been into watching bookTube lately when I saw this video from BooksAndLala and I’ve been meaning to do this ever since. The Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag is all about looking back to all the books that you’ve read in the past 6 months and the books that you wanted to read in the next 6 months. So far I’ve read 10 books in the past 6 months which is good because I was on track with my reading challenge of 20 books for the year. However, given that I only have 10 books to choose from, I don’t doubt that there will be questions where I will have the same answer, but I will try my best not to.
Note: I will be putting the synopsis of the book, so if you haven’t read the book and you want to dive into the book without knowing anything, just scroll through it.😉
So without further ado, here is my mid year book freak out!

“… every human being has a basic instinct to help each other out.”
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first men to walk on the surface of Mars. Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first man to die there.
It started with the dust storm that holed his suit and nearly killed him, and that forced his crew to leave him behind, sure he was already dead. Now he’s stranded millions of miles from the nearest human being, with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive–and even if he could get word out, his food would be gone years before a rescue mission could arrive. Chances are, though, he won’t have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old “human error” are much more likely to get him first.
But Mark isn’t ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills–and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit–he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. But will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?
