Letters From Paris: Introspection and Mystery in the City of Love

Letters From Paris by Juliet Blackwell

Beauty Brite Disclosure

When I first saw the book Letters from Paris, I was not incredibly excited. The book’s cover is beautiful, and it is written by bestselling author Juliet Blackwell, but the word ‘Paris’ instantly made me apprehensive. After all, there are many books about Paris that involve a woman’s self-discovery (and romance) whilst visiting the French city; what would make this one different?

Only You: A Summery Romance

Only You by Denise Grover Swank

 

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I admit it; I love romance novels. Sound the alarms! After all, romance novels are not usually listed among the world’s most esteemed pieces of literature (even though they can tell us a lot about different cultures’ romantic ideals), and several of them certainly do lack quality writing or unique plot elements. But I love them anyway, whether they’re historical Westerns or simplistic contemporary novels–and I’m certainly not the only one who does–so I was thrilled to receive an Advance Reading Copy of Denise Grover Swank’s new book Only You as a reviewer!… [read more]

Self-Taught Knitting, Baby!

My family recently took a road trip through several southern states. I decided that I FINALLY was going to make the time to learn to knit. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for about 10 years and I knew being on the road for hours at a time while traveling from one destination to the next for several days would give me the perfect opportunity (with no housework or errands or anything else interrupting me) to give this new endeavor the time and attention that I knew it would require.
