The Chocolate Touch Book Review:

Vive la Laura Florand! --Cassandra King La Vie en Chocolat Dominique Richard's reputation says it all--wild past, wilder flavors, black leather and smoldering heat. Jaime Corey is hardly the first woman to be drawn to all that dark, delicious danger. Sitting in Dom's opulent chocolaterie in Paris day after day, she lets his decadent creations restore her weary body and spirit, understanding that the man himself is entirely beyond her grasp. Until he touches her. . . Chocolate, Dominique understands--from the biting tang of lime-caramel to the most complex infusions of jasmine, lemon-thyme, and cayenne. But this shy, freckled American who sits alone in his salon, quietly sampling his exquisite confections as if she can't get enough of them--enough of him--is something else. She has secrets too, he can tell. Of course if she really knew him, she would run. Yet once you have spotted your heart's true craving, simply looking is no longer enough. . . Praise for Laura Florand and her novels "I adored this story. . .Paris, chocolate, and romance, all in one hilarious package." --New York Times bestelling author Eloisa James "Readers will devour this frothy, fun novel."--Booklist "Both sensual and sweet. . .a story that melts in your mouth!" --USA Today bestselling author Christie Ridgway

The Chocolate Temptation Book Review:

Romantic Times acclaims Laura Florand's work as "sensuous and sumptuous", nominating her for Best Book of 2013, and NPR says it's "explosive, sensual . . . and utterly sweet". Now, in her sixth book in the award-winning Amour et Chocolat series, Florand takes us into a top Paris restaurant’s pastry kitchen and into the hearts and irresistible temptations of its chefs. She hated him. Patrick Chevalier. The charming, laid-back, golden second-in-command of the Paris pastry kitchen where Sarah worked as intern, who made everything she failed at seem so easy, and who could have every woman he winked at falling for him without even trying. She hated him, but she’d risked too much for this dream to give up on it and walk out just so he wouldn’t break her heart. But he didn’t hate her. Sarah Lin. Patrick’s serious, dark-haired American intern, who looked at him as if she could see right through him and wasn’t so impressed with what she saw. As her boss, he knew he should leave her alone. The same way he knew better than to risk his heart and gamble on love. But he was never good at not going after what – or who – he wanted. He could make magic out of sugar. But could he mold hate into love? PRAISE FOR LAURA FLORAND AND HER NOVELS “Florand outdoes herself with this exquisite confection… painstakingly crafted and decadent as the sweets it portrays, leaving the reader longing for just one little taste.” – Publishers Weekly Starred Review “Chocolate, Paris, and a Greek god for a hero; this delectable confection has it all!” – Library Journal Starred Review “All the elements of [Florand’s] successful recipe for reading pleasure—headstrong heroine, dashing hero, sinful desserts, and sultry situations—come together in another deliciously entertaining offering.” – Booklist “[Florand] captures the nature of love, its fierce, soul-warming necessity, in a way that will make you as happy as the finest bonbon could.” – The Barnes & Noble Review, a Best Book of 2013 "Florand's long-standing love affair with Paris comes alive in her charming descriptions of the city and the delectable desserts her hero concocts. ...[a]delightful story full of sizzling sexual chemistry and a stellar cast of secondary characters." – RT Book Reviews “So romantic and sexy.” – USA Today “Sweet and sexy and all around delicious!!!” – New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh “I adored this story…Paris, chocolate, and romance, all in one hilarious package.” – New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James "I love, love Laura Florand's writing! Deeply emotional, delightfully sensual, deliciously sumptuous.

Thank me later. Once you wash the melted chocolate off your hands…” – USA Today bestselling author Donna Kauffman “Readers will devour this frothy, fun novel.” – Booklist “Explosive, sensual . . . and utterly sweet.” – NPR Books (Keywords: international lover, multicultural, office romance, enemies-to-lovers, culinary romance, paris, france, chocolate, asian heroine)

Don t Touch My Hair Book Review:

An entertaining picture book that teaches the importance of asking for permission first as a young girl attempts to escape the curious hands that want to touch her hair. It seems that wherever Aria goes, someone wants to touch her hair. In the street, strangers reach for her fluffy curls; and even under the sea, in the jungle, and in space, she's chased by a mermaid, monkeys, and poked by aliens...until, finally, Aria has had enough! Author-illustrator Sharee Miller takes the tradition of appreciation of black hair to a new, fresh, level as she doesn't seek to convince or remind young readers that their curls are beautiful--she simply acknowledges black beauty while telling a fun, imaginative story.

The Road Book Review:

NATIONAL BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE The searing, post-apocalyptic novel about a father and son's fight to survive. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.

1984 Book Review:

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick With extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity, George Orwell’s 1984 takes on new life in this edition. “Orwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power.”—The New Yorker In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be. Lionel Trilling said of Orwell’s masterpiece, “1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present.” Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell’s novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak truth to power.

Speak Book Review:

The first ten lies they tell you in high school. "Speak up for yourself--we want to know what you have to say." From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless, outcast, because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. As time passes, she becomes increasingly isolated and practically stops talking altogether. Only her art class offers any solace, and it is through her work on an art project that she is finally able to face what really happened at that terrible party: she was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. Her healing process has just begun when she has another violent encounter with him. But this time Melinda fights back, refuses to be silent, and thereby achieves a measure of vindication. In Laurie Halse Anderson's powerful novel, an utterly believable heroine with a bitterly ironic voice delivers a blow to the hypocritical world of high school. She speaks for many a disenfranchised teenager while demonstrating the importance of speaking up for oneself. Speak was a 1999 National Book Award Finalist for Young People's Literature.
