5 Books as Rich as Dark Chocolate

You know how sometimes you greedily snarf down a bag of M&M's and hope no one is watching you? But sometimes you sip on some red wine and slowly nibble and savor a nice square of dark chocolate? Books can be like that.  For me at least! Sometimes I binge read my set of the Twilight novels... which some in the literary world would call "junk food," but I love nonetheless! (Full disclosure, I'm 100% Team Edward and yes I'm almost 30 and no I don't care.) But sometimes. Sometimes I read a book and the words, phrases, concepts, or imagery just beg to be chewed on.     Those are the "dark chocolate" books.  The ones that I underline favorite sections in. The ones I beg my buds to read so we can gush to each other about who amazingly rich and complex they are! The ones I reread over and over again. So think of this as me giving you a list of a couple favorite types of dark chocolate bars. I hope you read them and I hope you get as many

Anyways she used a phrase that I just ADORE and am totally stealing... she said that some books are like dark chocolate. They have a depth. You chew on them more. You savor the complexity. So... my set of Twilight novels? Junk food. Delicious junk food. There's a place for all kinds of reading! ;-) No shame in indulging every once in awhile. But back to the good stuff.. I couldn't get that phrase out of my head, and I want to share a really amazing "dark chocolate" type book with you today. I just finished it last
