Three For Today is a new featured series on the blog. Every month, I invite you to discover three books that I plan on reading, followed by a review in form of a video. You can check out the books I had picked for this first installment by hopping over to this post.

For the first installment of Three For Today, I wanted to read something sweet, funny and thoughtful. On a whim – and because I loved the titles and the covers of each book, I decided to read If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This by Robin Black, Seven Days of Friday by Alex A. King, and Forget Me Not by Jennifer Lowe-Anker.

If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This was a good collection of short stories. I found it easy to go through, as I could devour a story or two in a sitting without interrupting the flow of the story(ies). The author writes from multiple points of view - man/woman old/young. She deals with a variety of difficult situations - with humor, and grace, and heart. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys a well written short story.

Seven Days of Friday was a wonderful surprise. The moment I picked up the book, I couldn’t lay it down. I finished it in less than 2 days, and was laughing so hard pages after pages. Seven Days of Friday is a story of an American woman/mother with Greek origins who moves to Greece – after a failed marriage, with her 15 years old daughter. There she meets a lovely doctor and has to deal with the locals love for drama and jealousy while making a life for herself and her daughter. The book is written from the point of view of Vivi – the mom, Melissa – the daughter and Max – the pediatrician. It is a very fun read and I would say that it was my favorite read of this new reading installment.

Finally, Forget Me Not is a memoir, written by Jennifer Lowe Anker in homage to her long time gone husband. It is a good book to read when one wants to ponder on the meaning of life, as it shows us that nothing is ever acquired and pushes us to think of the things that truly make us happy and what we need to do to keep it. It is a story of love, of understanding, of trust and of truth. It is a piece of daily inspiration for young couples, and a food for thought for everyone else. Beautifully written, I would recommend this book to anyone who loves nature, adventure and well, obviously a good love/life story.


Overall, I am happy with these books, as I really enjoyed myself. I hope I encouraged you to check them out, and if you have read them, don’t hesitate to drop me a word either here, on my Youtube channel or even on twitter.

FINAL NOTE:
I hope you all enjoyed this new way of conducting these book reviews. Let me know what you think of it (do you like it? Or do you prefer my old way of doing these reviews?). I am still new at video blogging so forgive my beginers mistakes in putting the video together. Hopefully with time it will get better!
