Caffeinated Confessions – It’s that Time of Year When I am Drawn to…

I am an advertiser’s wet dream. Seriously, I am. Stick a wreath on a book, add some snow and be it murder and mayhem or sweet romance I want it.*grabby hands* I will one-click my way through all of those magical covers. I cannot help myself it puts me in the mood. Genre doesn’t matter, although I will confess romances are sort of magical in holiday themed books. My heart gets all gooey, and I weep. Gads! Does this madness happen to you?

Summer Pasta, Family Time & Little Mercies by Heather Gudenkauf

Thanks to Harlequin for sponsoring today’s book recommendation and giveaway. It’s Recipe & A Book Recommendation and today we have a delicious summer pasta salad and Little Mercies by Heather Gudenkauf. Little Mercies released on June 24, 2014. It is a powerful, riveting read and I will share my thoughts with you in October. It reminds us to value the ones we hold dear and the importance of “family time.” When my children were small we began a tradition on Friday evenings that we all have fond memories of. Today I will share ours with you, and maybe you can create nights like this with your family.

Caffeinated Confession -Do we demand more from our books than reality?

Do we as readers demand more from our fictional stories then real life?
