A New Favorite

Another reading update. I hope I'm not becoming one dimensional here, but I have to share a bit about the book that I just finish today - Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos.

I read this book specifically for Summer Reading Challenge and boy, am I ever thankful I did.

This book is an immediate all-time favorite. It follows the path of two people: 1)Cornelia, a 27 year-old coffee shop manager, drifting her way through life and comparing almost everything she encounters to a classic romantic movie, and 2)Clare, an 11 year-old, struggling to cope with the abandonment of her troubled mother and seeking solace in orphan characters from classic children's literature. I loved and connected to them both and marveled at the wittiness of all the characters throughout Love Walked In. I recommend this book to all who like deeply drawn characters and a pace that keeps you turning the pages.

This one is still waiting in the wings for me, but I have the perfect book for this time of year that I began yesterday, A CEDAR COVE CHRISTMAS by Debbie Macomber. Loved that crochet baby animal (lamb). Wanta see a blog post about that.
