Book Spotlight: Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

Circus, animals and the love of your life!

Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

Orphaned, penniless, Jacob Jankowski jumps a freight train in the dark, and in that instant, transforms his future.

By morning, he’s landed a job with the Flying Squadron of the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. By nightfall, he’s in love.

In an America made colourless by prohibition and the Depression, the circus is a refuge of sequins and sensuality. But behind the glamour lies a darker world, where both animals and men are dispensable. Where falling in love is the most dangerous act of all…

Sexy, intelligent quotes from Gene Tierney


“I existed in a world that never is – the prison of the mind.”

“I approached everything, my job, my family, my romances, with intensity.”

“Wealth, beauty, and fame are transient. When those are gone, little is left except the need to be useful.”

“I simply did not want my face to be my talent.”

“I loved to eat. For all of Hollywood’s rewards, I was hungry for most of those 20 years.” — Gene Tierney

Book Spotlight: Suddenly You by @LisaKleypas

My toes curled reading this. I loved it so so much!

Suddenly You by Lisa Kleypas

She was unmarried, untouched and almost thirty, but novelist Amanda Briars wasn′t about to greet her next birthday without making love to a man. When he appeared at her door, she believed he was her gift to herself, hired for one night of passion. Unforgettably handsome, irresistibly virile, he tempted her in ways she never thought possible…but something stopped him from completely fulfilling her dream.

Jack Delvin′s determination to possess Amanda became greater when she discovered his true identity. But gently-bred Amanda craved respectability more than she admitted, while Jack, the cast-off son of a nobleman and London′s most notorious businessman, refused to live by society′s rules. Yet when fate conspired for them to marry, their worlds collided with a passionate force neither had expected…but both soon craved.

Poignant quotes from Virginia Woolf

“If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people.”

“You cannot find peace by avoiding life.”

“It is far more difficult to murder a phantom than a reality.”

“On the outskirts of every agony sits some observant fellow who points.”

“It is the nature of the artist to mind excessively what is said about him. Literature is strewn with the wreckage of men who have minded beyond reason the opinions of others.” — Virginia Woolf

Falling for the other guy, so heartwarming!

Meant to Be by Terri Osburn

Sometimes the next best thing is what you’ve been looking for all along…

Beth Chandler has spent her whole life pleasing others. She went to law school to make her grandparents happy. She agreed to marry her workaholic boyfriend, Lucas, to make him happy. And, despite her fear of boats, she took a ferry to see Lucas’s parents just to make them happy.

While suffering through a panic attack on the ferry, Beth meets a tall, sexy stranger who talks her down from her fear—and makes her heart flutter in the process. Soon, she has a new reason to panic: her gorgeous, blue-eyed rescuer is Lucas’s brother, Joe. But could she ever leave her fiancé for his own brother…even if Lucas is more focused on making partner than on making their relationship work…and even if Joe turns out to be everything she never knew she wanted?

Filled with excitement and delight, Meant to Be is the story of a young woman torn between urban pressures and small-town pleasures.
