Winter Weather

Posted February 14, 2014 by Kate in Uncategorized / 0 Comments

I hope everyone is doing well after this lovely week of snow/winter storms. I know where we live we got many, many inches of snow. When we bought our house we really hadn’t prepared for snow, seeing as how our area never gets more than an inch of snow for a year. So much of this week was spent winterizing our house, more specifically a backdoor that broke literally minutes before the snow started falling. Needless to say not much book reading was done. But I will be back tomorrow (Saturday) with book reviews galore! I hope everyone is staying warm and is enjoying their snow days (if you had any). Hope to see you tomorrow for more book reviews!

Emma is definitely someone you feel for during the course of the book, she is thrown into the limelight, hounded by photographers and people for literally doing nothing but meeting a guy on vacation. There are some scenes that take place when she tries to go out into public and the way the public treats her is so disheartening, it’s really a commentary on how the media and paparazzi have really gotten out of control in this country. Jack as a character is great in the beginning, in those first experiences on vacation with Emma. Him being on vacation, and his interactions with Emma (who has no idea who he is) allows him to really be his […]
