Book Recommendation-Big Magic From Elizabeth Gilbert

I am revisiting this book recommendation I wrote from January 2016 when I about my favorite book from 2015.  It is timely since we are reading it this month in an online book club I am a member of. It is one of the best books I have read, and  in April I will be traveling to southern Illinois to see Elizabeth Gilbert speak for the first time! I am beyond excited to see her! This book was the prime motivator behind making my writing and my blog a top priority in my life last year (plus losing my job…

Why My Book Addiction Will Cause My Sudden Death

I love books I love new books, used books, book recommendations, book clubs, and mostly owning books!  This last fact is the main reason that books could be the death of me. Books stores are an instant magnet to me.  If I walk past one, I HAVE to enter.  Before I know it I have spent hours combing the shelves only to walk out with 5 new books in my bag. Sometimes I think I am the only person with this book addiction, but from what I hear, I am in good company.  Actually I can vouch for this special…

Book Recommendation: Pancakes In Paris by Craig Carlson

  My book recommendation for this month is Breakfast In America by Craig Carlson Not only did this fun read make me incredibly hungry for all breakfast food, it  was a great glimpse into the crazy bureaucracy of starting and running a restaurant in Paris. This is the true story of Craig Carlson and his very famous diner style Breakfast In America restaurants in Paris. Armed with an idea and a dream, his journey is not an easy one by far. Struggling with setback after setback, Craig never gives up on his dream. It sure takes a tough skin to…

I originally wrote this piece in 2015 after attending Yallfest the year before for the first time with my then 16 year old daughter.  I wanted to resurrect it and post it again since it is time for Yallfest for another year. My daughter is now in her first year of college and I have to say this is one of my favorite things we did together in her High School years. If you are not familiar with YALLfest you are probably asking yourself What is YALLfest 2016? YALLfest is one of-if not the largest young adult book events…

What I’m Reading Now

What’s better than sitting in a cafe in Paris with a glass of wine in one hand and a book in the other? Nothing!!  Seriously, you need reading material when you are sitting in airports and sitting on a plane for 7 hours. Other than having a couple of books ready to go on my IPad, I picked up Truly Madly Guilty from Liane Moriarty at Costco last week.  Now who hasn’t read Big Little Lies and The Husband’s Secret and not loved them both? Knowing I really enjoyed both those I…

The Light Of Paris by Eleanor Brown

The Light Of Paris is a page turner I picked up The Light of Paris by Eleanor Brown mainly because of the Paris subject matter.  Five pages in that I was going to have no problem finishing this one.

Madeline is married to a controlling Husband Madeline is married to a controlling husband.   Similarly, she grew up with an equally controlling Mother who tried…
