PrayerLadyBellevue, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Celebration of love is not confined to weddings...June 2, 2012PrayerLadyBellevue, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Celebration of love is not confined to weddings, anniversaries, or Valentine's Day. Proving this, "Everything Romance" provides â€˜something for everyone', from the sublime to the corny to the winsome to the serious. Enjoying it, I savored it as I read, marking copious passages to remember.
Bordon and Winters managed to gather a broad selection of writing, including poems, lyrics, stories, Bible quotations, snippets from great literature, and quotes from famous people. There are even recipes with which to pamper your beloved. "How to Love for a Lifetime", is a thought-provoking, useful list for anyone in a marriage.
"Everything Romance" is imaginative, delightful, and a book you can pick up and put down at will, read for a few minutes for refreshment, and always find in it something of value. The editors include "Love Boosters", "Love Busters", and guidelines for romance in the digital age, and a section called "How to Love for a Lifetime".
My favorite quotes:
Page 102: "A happy marriage is a long conversation that is always too short." (Maurois)
Page 131: "To get the full value of joy, you must have someone to divide it with." (Twain)
Page 229: "Love does not dominate; it cultivates." (Goethe)
I recommend this book without reservation and would recommend it to anyone interested in having, maintaining, or nurturing a marriage.
i blog 4 books4 Stars Out Of 5For the Romantic at HeartMay 26, 2012i blog 4 booksI'm not normally a big fan of gift books . . . as far as reading straight through. But I have thoroughly enjoyed reading through Everything Romance as the mood strikes. This is a great collection of all things "romantic." The authors have done an excellent job compiling a mixture of stories, letters, quotes, recipes, date ideas, gift suggestions and the like. In fact, a couple of the date / gift suggestions inspired my gift to Hubs for Valentine's this year!
Anyone who is a romantic at heart will enjoy Everything Romance. [4 stars]
I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah and FIRST Wild Card Tours in exchange for my fair and honest review.
dyandLancaster, NYAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5March 10, 2012dyandLancaster, NYAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Everything Romance is not at all what I expected it to be. When I ordered the book, I expected to receive a self-help book on relationships. Although this book does deal with relationships in many different forms, it really is not your typical self-help book. I did enjoy the read. Because of its format, you can pick it up and put it down or read it in-between other books without losing your place at all.
Everything Romance is actually a collection of blessings and prayers, very short stories, trivia, lists (for example: "Here's What I Love About You", or "Conversation Starters for Couples", love letters, poetry, quotations, recipes ("Minty Fresh Love Nectar"), scripture, gift ideas and the part which I think was my favorite, Love Boosters:"Dance together, even if it's just in the kitchen for a few minutes before breakfast."; and Love Busters: "Bring up your spouse's past mistakes. Never let them be buried." - just powerful little sentences that really made you think, "Do I do that?", or more realistically, "oops!"
I would very much recommend this book. Not all of it will be for everyone. Personally, I'm not into poetry, and someone else's love letters do not really interest me, so I pretty much skimmed over those, but there is definitely something for everyone, both male and female - especially you gentlemen who have a hard time coming up with things to do or say that show your wife that you love her - and the best part is, it literally can be read for minutes at a time, and there is even an index if you are looking for specifics. Just leave it lying around the house and pick it up when you have a moment or two - if you put what you read into practice, you will definitely improve the romance portion of your marriage.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
BlondieTerre Haute, INAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Book! Truly a Keeper of a book!February 13, 2012BlondieTerre Haute, INAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book caught me from the very beginning as it is attractively packaged and a small but nice size. Who would not want a book that on the very front said A Celebration of Love for Couples? It has a wide variety of styles within the pages of this book. It has stories from the Bible on Love & scriptures on Love. Prayers that are so sincere in their joy of Love. Short stories that were fun to read. Recipes to try. Easy inexpensive ways to say I love you. It also has Love Boosters & Love Busters - what to say to make your love grow & what can pop the happy times (so don't do these!). I received this book free from Waterbrook Multnomah publishers & was not required to give a favorable review just an honest one. Loved it!
