Amanda A very very cute boy recommended it to me!
I just finished reading the part where her sister ran naked out from the shower and reached into a steamy embrace with a man atop a horse. Beautiful.

Holli I've been told I should read this one...should I? :)

message 4: by Amanda (new)

Amanda So far, I'd say yes! But read it when you're feeling passionate! :)

Amanda There are recipes at the beginning of each chapter, and I told my boyfriend that I want to make them all with him. (He's the one that recommended the book to me.) I think it would be so romantic to cook these particular recipes with him.

Misha If all the lights inside you can be lit at once, your heart will burst, and infinity becomes permanent.

Is this an Amanda original or a line from the book? I'd kind of like to quote it. :)

I love that feeling of being ridiculously happy and in love and feeling like you fit with someone. I just wish I could get that returned from someone. I shall continue to live in hope. It's never too late as long as I'm still breathing, right? But I'm really happy you have that, Amanda. Everyone should have that at least once.

Amanda That's an Amanda original. :) The book talks about a book of matches inside each of us and each time one gets lit, we have that happy feeling inside.

NEVER too late, my dear one. Never ever ever.

Holli Oh my god I will love this book if it invokes that kind of sentiment from you.....
