Saturday @ Starbucks is a weekly feature hosted by Starbucks & Books Obsession.
This week's topic is:
Book Immersion & a Very Berry Coffee Cake
Starbucks of the Week: Very Berry Coffee Cake
Starbucks is the coffee capital and everyone knows about their drinks. They get me through the week. However, I have also discovered some amazing food at Starbucks too. The Very Berry Coffee cake is one of my favorite breakfeast items. It is sweet and tangy and reduced fat to top it off. It is the perfect compliment to a hot latte.
Book Topic of the Week: Book Immersion
I did a lot of reading this week. Somehow I just cranked out the books and it got me thinking about book immersion and how wrapped up I can get in a book and the after effect it has on me. I know I am not the only one who has this problem. I'm sure you have all felt the hangover from an emotionally intense book. I have always been a reader and loved reading since I was a child but since I became a blogger, I feel like I have immersed myself so much farther into the book world. As a woman now, I also read a lot of new adult and intense contemporary books which are easy to get emotionally involved in. I find myself feeling all kinds of emotions for these fictional characters and their lives as if they were happening to me.
Since I read a lot of new adult novels, there are a lot of sexy, tattooed bad boys and I find myself being attracted to that more and more. I mean, I have always liked tattoos, I have a couple of my own, but I never really noticed them or gave them a second glance on guys. Now, when I see a guy with tattoos, I definitely find myself paying a lot more notice. Seriously, what have guys like Remington from REAL or Lucas from EASY done to me. I'm not gonna lie, I also look at men on motorcycles a little differently too.
Seriously though, I know books aren't real life and the men in them aren't real but it sure is fun to pretend and I love getting so immersed that I can feel the emotions and fall for these men.
What about you? Do you find yourself caught up in the books you read and falling for the men in them?
