Romance for Every Mood
In the Mood for... A Romantic Drama?
What girl doesn't like a good dose of drama? If you are looking for lies, secrets and intrigue, then I absolutely recommend The Brat by Sherry Gloag and Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin. If you are into historical romance, then you must read The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory. The drama is to die for and luckily Something Borrowed is currently being made into a movie which will be released in 2011. I hope Hollywood will do it justice!
In the Mood for... A Fashionable Adventure?
Our closets are like sacred fashion vaults, and if you want to read about what happens to Holly when Audrey Hepburn originals go missing, then Holly Would Dream by Karen Quinn is the way to go. Need more fashionable drama? Pop in "The Devil Wears Prada" for a stylish roller coaster ride.
In the Mood for... A Life Changing Experience?In the Mood for... Something Sweet?
I have the biggest sweet tooth and Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swensen Mystery series always satisfies my cravings. All of her titles carry a food theme (for example, The Cream Puff Murder), and there are a handful of delicious recipes provided in every book. Yum. For even more sweets, watch "Because I Said So".
In the Mood to... Find Yourself?
When life hands you a lemon, flip through the pages of The Little Lady Agency by Hester Browne. We can all take a few lessons from Melissa Romney-Jones on how to make the best of any situation. Want to watch an equally thrilling movie? You must see "Someone Like You"
Despite what novel you choose, all of these books have three things in common. First, they all feature wonderfully flawed leading ladies. Second, the author explores various types of relationships (for example, familial, romantic and self love). And finally, they are all amazing stories. You will find yourself rooting for the heroine, cheering her on as she overcomes personal challenges, and rejoicing when she finds love. Have you read any of these books? Seen any of these movies? Or have recommendations of your own?
