Her new book is Romance Is My Day Job: A Memoir of Finding Love at Last.
Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. Bloom's reply:
Finding Colin Firth by Mia March: I’m close to finishing this charming story about three women whose lives intersect in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Of course, any title mentioning Colin Firth compels a purchase, but I got swept up in the characters’ journeys through romance, pregnancy, pie-making, marriage, adoption, and starting over. This is a comfort read for the soul.Visit Patience Bloom's website.
On the Island by Tracey Garvis Graves: This book is utterly haunting, exploring gritty realities of “if you lived on a desert island…” The author’s straightforward style grabbed me and led me through a day-to-day struggle to survive. A very special book that stays with you long after you’ve finished.
Running with the Mind of Meditation by Sakyong Mipham Ripoche: I love to run and am trying to meditate every day. Turns out, you can do both! A friend recommended this book, which will help any runner rediscover his/her groove. I love how the author stresses mindfulness while running, appreciating each step, where you are, and how you’re running.
