Femnista: Love Stories

Friday, February 1, 2013

Considering that we are coming up on Valentine's Day, it's perfectly appropriate and quite fortuitous that the newest issue of Femnista released on February first (our editor clearly has everything in line during her yearly planning for which topics we should tackle next. Yes, we are on to you, Charity!). This issue left me anxious to see how it would all come together and I am thrilled that it's finally here. This issue is all about "Memorable Love Stories." And, basically it's vying for a spot as one of my most favorites.

So many love stories are precious and truly memorable. This issue is a fine example of those that we've fallen head over heels in love with. Some are tragic and leave us in crying our eyes out but perhaps with something to think about. Then there are my favorite kind, those that may take us on a roller-coaster yet we are in a state of happiness by the happy-ever-after. Here is how our editor puts it:
Love is a big part of our lives. It tugs on our hearts, puts a smile on our faces and gives us something to believe in. Some of your favorite couples may be included in this issue. Some of these characters you may never have even heard about. But each means something to the author of the article. Each touched lives enough to demand to be written about. Enjoy all the love! - from the editor 
Famous couples like Anna and Vorskey or Elinor and Edward are well represented as well as a beautiful crossover piece on Nicholas Sparks', Jamie and Landon (A Walk to Remember) and a Hallmark Hall of Fame couple, Livy and Ray. There are also many more delights to be uncovered plus some classic film. Could you ask for anything more?

Femnista: Memorable Romances

PS: On a personal note, I'd just like to give birthday shout-outs to all my fellow contributors! Hope you ladies had a fabulous birthday (Carissa, Caitlin and Patti) and am wishing Ella (know you have some awesome plans, girl!), Rachel Mc. and Tryntsje a memorable day. Sending birthday wishes your way, girls.


  1. Oh, darn. You're on to me, and my planning?! ;)

    My single regret for the topics for 2013 is that I didn't think of doing the Civil War for March/April... Lincoln's assassination, etc. Ah well. There's always 2014! ;)

    1. Indeed I am. And you'll just have to accept it, girl. :)

      Oh, that is too bad. If it's any consolation, your March/April issue is looking like a gem. I am *dying* to see it. Yes, I realize the new issue just came out. ;D

      2014? There you go again in planning mode!

    2. I hope I can choose a topic for my own oneshot before the deadline arrives. ;)

      Yeah... the curse of my personality type is that we always think wayyyy ahead, which is sometimes good (decision making) and sometimes bad (rampant paranoia).

    3. Hey, better to be ahead than late. Or that is my strategy. :)

      Oooo! Cannot wait to know your topic. Whatever it is, it'll be terrific. :D

  2. Ah, that picture of Jamie and Landon made me choke up. *sniffle sniffle*

    I'll definitely check out this issue! ;D

    1. Do you know, that is the one Nicholas Sparks movie I haven't seen. It's because I will detest the ending. Went into 'Message in a Bottle' without knowing the end and thought it was one of the worst movies I've seen. As a result, I won't see a Sparks adaptation until I know the end. Now, since then, I quite like them. Flaws and all.

      Please do, Rosie! The article (I believe Hannah wrote it) on Jamie an Landon was lovely. :)

  3. Ohmygoodnessgracious. A Walk To Remember. Talk about a sweet, sweet movie. Makes me cry every time.

    1. Do you know, Rachel, this is the one movie of Nicholas Sparks I've not seen. The reason being its tearjerker ending. If you like the movie, the article in this e-zine on Landon and Jamie was really sweet. If you have the time, take a look at it. :)

  4. Ohmigoodness, A Walk To Remember is SO AMAZING. I love anything and everything by nicholas sparks; I can't wait for his new book to movie "Safe Haven" to come out soon! The book was amazing, and I'm sure the movie will be as well!
    Hope you're having a great day!

    1. So many people love that movie. I cannot get over the fact that it's sad. Ah, well! Like you, I am super excited about Safe Haven. It's one I am going to see in theaters, Juliet. Loved the book fine and am still going to review it. Soon.

      Have a happy week, Juliet. :)
