Genre: Memoir, Fun Book
Reviewed For: Sourcebooks
Blurb: Straight from the heart of influential romance blogger Sarah Wendell, this inventive gift book provides the best wisdom about love that the romance genre has to offer. Laced with signature witty commentary and peppered with thoughts from bestselling romance authors and avid readers, these pages will reveal what every romance reader already knows: while romances are certainly steamy, they have more to offer than just a sexy hero. In fact, they might have more to say about love than we give them credit for.
My Thoughts: Such a fun book for an romance lover. This is a book you can easily devour in one sitting. As a reader and a writer, I think this is a must read. In case you didn't know, Sarah Wendell is also a fellow book blogger over at SmartBitches. I think this book is great because it gets rid of a lot of stereotypes that people think when they know your a romance reader. Often people think that this is our porn, or we have a false sense of reality. I completely agree with the book, um no! Men are never fully like these men in the book BUT if your with the right man, they are darn near close.
There are a lot of tips in this book to help us with our own love lives. You get a book chocked full of excerpts from favorite novels of Sarah's and she even includes a shopping list at the end.
Be sure to keep your eye out for this one. Its a must have on your bookshelf.
