Book Review and Giveaway - Chicken Soup For The Soul True Love




I'm sure most of you are probably familiar with the Chicken Soup for the Soul books - they are the popular books that contain inspiring and heart-warming stories on a variety of themes. I recently had the opportunity to review one of their latest editions, Chicken Soup for the Soul True Love.

With February here and Valentine's Day coming up, this is the perfect time to read some great stories about dating, romance, love, and marriage. One of my favorites was a story called Breakfast and a Movie. It's about a couple who found a way to make "date night" into something all their own. Every once in awhile, on a weekday morning after their daughter went to school, they would head out to a nice relaxing breakfast and then to an early matinee movie. Something so simple, yet, a wonderful way to share some special time together. Another story, called Challenged, really had me laughing. A twenty-something single girl meets a young man. Because he is so tongue-tied and shy around her at first, she presumes he is mentally challenged. Once she gets to know him, he admits that it was her beauty that had him so tongue-tied. The two eventually end up getting married!

I love to read the Chicken Soup for the Soul books because they are always full of stories that can make you smile, laugh, and even cry. The stories are all short and easy to read - it's the perfect book to carry with you when you may have a few extra minutes here and there to spend reading.
