Guest Blogger! Sarah- One Smart B. on warm reading

Imagine my twitterly glee when I saw that Sarah from one of my all time favorite blogs: Smart Bitches Who Love Trashy Books was offering to guest post on folks blogs today since SBs were going through maintenance. Their loss my gain. Evil I am. I jumped at the offer! So without further delay here's Sarah...

OMG you are SO RIGHT. My thermometer in NJ is reading a balmy 32.8 and I am excited about every last one of those last .8 degrees above freezing.

The thing about cold weather is that it makes me crave soup, hot beverages, and really long, luscious, forget-where-I-am-and-how-cold-it-is books. These are a special section of my keeper shelf - cold weather books. I have vacation books, need-a-break-books, and the ones that Calgon-take-me-away immediately.

My top cold weather books (add blanket and hot beverage, spiked if you like it, and really, really warm socks) are:
"The Duke and I" - Julia Quinn. Holy smackerel I love this book. No matter where I start reading it, I'm in. Warmth of a happy family and a truly loving heroine: le sigh."

Charms for the Easy Life," by Kaye Gibbons - not a romance, but three women's storys, past present and future, heavy on the magic and midwifery.

"Lyon's Lady" by Julie Garwood. This one is on my bedstand because I am always FREEZING when I get in bed, and a few pages makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. I love old Garwood historicals but this one is among my faves.

What books warm your toes?

(Thanks for letting me guest blog!)

Thanks so much Sarah! I'm honored to have you on my blog today. I'll be sure to put those books on my snuggle up list along with a Snuggie!

Everyone please hop on over to SBTB when they are up and running. It is the place to be for those in the know on romance. And chime in on the books that warm your toes. For me it's anything with a sexy rake and a stubborn heroine. Elizabeth Hoyt, Lisa Kleypas, Eloisa James please.

It's a cult... the snuggie movement!

I am so getting myself a snuggie.

I've reread All Through the Night by Suzanne Brockmann about three times this winter, so that has to go on my list of warming up books. Along with that, I have to say, Sarah, I love Kaye Gibbons! Charms is great, but I think Ellen Foster might be my favorite.

Our office as a GROUP ordered Snuggles!! Hopefully we won't wear them at work.... although there are some here who take naps.....zzzzz

I am not sure if 32.8 sounds good or not! It's going to be 111F here today so we are definitely at the opposite end of the weather spectrum.

In other words, no snuggies here!

Snuggie fever!

SB Sarah is everywhere.

Anthologies are my favorite comfort reads. Anything with snowed in, wilderness cabin, wounded rescue. I'm not picky. There's a great Lori Foster short story in an antho called HOT CHOCOLATE. That's a perfect snuggle read.

I'm embarrassed to say I've never before heard of Snuggies!

Have you seen the pimped out snuggie? OMG! Check it out here:

In spite of being the theme of many punchlines these days, I think I need one of these things. Unpimped, thank you very much.
