SATURDAY POTPOURRI: FRIENDSHIP, LOVE, & ROAD TRIPS — FEB. 9

I finished Big Cherry Holler earlier today….click title for review.   Needless to say, I LOVED it!  I wouldn’t categorize it as a romance novel, but there were beautiful moments and there was love.  There was also a lot of angst.  But most of all, I enjoyed seeing the “Holler” through the characters’ eyes, especially Ave Maria’s.  And when she went to Italy, I felt as though I were there, too.

In honor of “love month,” I’ve changed my blog header again to celebrate it.

And I’m reading stories that make me feel good.  I’m also watching more old movies that do the same.  Like one from the mid-nineties with Whoopi Goldberg, Drew Barrymore, and Mary-Louise Parker:  Boys on the Side.

A movie about friendships…albeit accidental ones.  A story about a road trip that leads the characters into moments that will only strengthen the bonds between them.

Next I’m going to plunge into another Stephanie Plum book:  Sizzling Sixteen.  I mentioned it the other day, but now I’m reading it.
