- If you loved the Hunger Games, then I recommend Divergent by Veronica Roth. The second part of the trilogy just came out earlier this month, but I have yet to read!
- I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Unbroken. It’s a true story about a man, Louis Zamperini, that was stranded out in the sea for 47 days during WWII. Then, he miraculously survived a very long stint in a POW camp. It really is an amazing story to read, I put it on my MUST READ list for others…
- Night Road is written by Kristen Hannah, who was an author that was recommended to me from a friend. I was actually at the library to find another one of her books, but the description of this one intrigued me. This is another quick read and makes me a little fearful of raising my boys into teenagers, as I read the battles that these teenagers faced in the story!
- Two Kisses for Maddy is a memoir about a young family. The mom, Liz, died from complications from birth the day after her daughter was born and the dad writes about his journey on raising his daughter on his own. You will really feel all emotions while you read this book-a few tears and many laughs. Definitely, definitely worth reading!
I’ve had a request from a friend to share this awesome recipe! To quote her husband, “Holy! They taste like chocolate donuts!” They aren’t fried like donuts, but they do contain a good amount of cream cheese and butter which helps all of our healthy diets!!!! But it’s worth every bite, they are delicious.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Confectioner’s sugar, for dusting
1 (18 ounce) box moist chocolate cake mix
1 (8-ounce) brick cream cheese, room temperature
