|The husband gave me beautiful |
roses today. He's my Valentine too,
but he'll have to share me with books.
Books are my Valentine.
They comfort me when I am sad and cheer me up after a hard day. They take me on extravagant trips. They've never abandoned me.
Books have given me a lifetime of happiness and never asked for anything in return. I'm grateful.
In honor of Valentine's day, here are just a few books I've fallen in love with recently.
Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas
I read this in one sitting. Be prepared.
Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
King creates such great characters. I was totally immersed in this story and read it in just a couple of days.
The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova
This was a re-read. I read this back when it came out, and then re-read over my snow days. This is such a beautiful story. I'll read it many more times I'm sure.
Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
I love any book set in a bookstore.
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
I also read this one straight through. I loved it so much and can't believe it took me this long to get to it!
Today a student asked me what my favorite love story was. While I truly can't choose a favorite anything when it comes to books, I do love Elizabeth and Darcy of Pride and Prejudice.
Happy Valentine's Day!
