being MORNING GLORY by sarah jio. {and a giveaway!}


My sweet friend, Sarah Jio, had her fifth novel debut this morning, MORNING GLORY, and I’m so very excited to read this one. If you follow Sarah and her process to write each book, you’ll remember that she actually rented a houseboat on Seattle’s Lake Union to keep her inspired while she wrote. How magical is that?

Can’t wait to dig into MORNING GLORY. If been holding off starting a new book, as I knew it was on the way!

Can’t wait for the giveaway to end? You can grab your own copy on Amazon or your local bookstore! Keeping my fingers crossed that Mrs. Jio makes her way to her old college stomping grounds for a reading and signing of MORNING GLORY. (drinks on me, if you do!)

    Having gone to the UW – I ALWAYS wanted to live on a houseboat.

  2. Robyn Says:

    love Sarah Jio. I would love to win the new book even more! Never been on a houseboat but would definitely give it a try since it sounds like so much fun! I’m already a fan on Facebook, and will be sharing the giveaway for sure :)

  3. Melinda Yost Says:

    I just ordered it. I am forcing myself to finish my current read to read Sarah’s book. Yes, Marion Keyes. You are boring me and I want to move on to Sarah Jio.

  4. Katie M Says:

    I was going to enter this but I’ve loved her last few books so I’m just going to buy it instead. (I think you aren’t a true Seattleite if you haven’t dreampt at least once about living on a houseboat at one point in your life. Then you have a kid and your mom-paranoia kicks in you’re positive your child will sleep walk right into the water. Please tell me I’m not the only one to think this.)

    Because of you, I have read all of her books (okay, twice) and preordered her latest. I got it yesterday… trying to save it for my Black Friday couchfest. I don’t know if I can wait!

  7. Darcy Says:

    Have I been on a houseboat (as in set foot on)? Yes. Lived on a houseboat? No. Sounds fun! I also “like” Being5 on FB. Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Karla Says:

    1. Never. Would love to see one though. 2. Liked 3. Shared

    (and pinned your Thanksgiving juice boxes which were super cute..but I’ll never do them because I’m way too lazy!). Need me to tweet or +1 something now? :)

    Never been on one but daydream of living on one, especially in the summer.

    Comment for Sara Willy, who left it in the wrong spot: “I want the Sarah Jio book!!!! I love love love her! I spent a week on a houseboat with a huge rowdy group of people and an s-load of alcohol. Only one of us ended up preggo. (By her husband, of course…)”
