3 Things: Curl up with a Good Book

It's cold outside, the wood stove is constantly burning and when you've exhausted Netflix, there is nothing better than curling up with a good book. I currently have a stack that I'm slowly but surely working through: romance, suspense, horror, science fiction--there is nothing I won't read!

Luckily, there are a whole host of smart, bittersweet, irreverent love stories that chart their own path. Some of my favorite offbeat romance flicks include...
