My Thoughts on Our Favorite New Books
Being an avid reader, picking up new books always put a smile on my face. In The Art of Love I enjoyed learning about power couples in the Art world. I’ve read that some of the best artists had dark sides, but I didn’t know about most of the couples from the book.
Having been a journey keeper since my teens, I am in love with It Had To Be You. This book once completed will have our entire love story to be shared with our little ones once we are gone.
And although we don’t have anyone getting married in the near future, this Wedding Planner sure would have been helpful when our children were planning their weddings. I have impressed at the details in this book. Things that are so easily over looked.
What book lover hasn’t fallen in love with Jane Austin? In this book, The Complete Novels of Jane Austen all her novels are in your hand to lead you down the path of romance, life, death, and all the emotions in between.
The Complete Language of Flowers has been one of the favorite books of my daughter Meagan. She loves everything about flowers. I thought she knew a bunch about them but after being questioned on a ton from the book, her knowledge is becoming impressive.
