  1. This is such a fun challenge! I’m not entering, but here is my punch bowl:
    Base: Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery (this is just a solid classic that has a great mix of sad, happy, romance, and just every day life – a great “base.)
    Citrus: This Quiet Sky by Joanne Bischof (this is such a good story that totally made me bawl and is on the shorter side – everything can’t end in perfectly tied packages, but this one still ended perfectly)
    Sugar: Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson (this is what I turn to when I want to laugh and read something sweet)
    Water: #Starstruck by Sariah Wilson (I picked this for water because it isn’t too deep, but still is a solid, well-developed story, with a romance I could drink up all day and over and over again)
    Spice: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (this is a read with plenty of spice between its darker edge, the crazy plot, and serious danger – it’s even got a little spice in the romance department)

    base – Written in Red by Anne Bishop (the world-building is phenomenal)

    citrus – Sweet Tea and Sympathy by Molly Harper (that cover makes me think of tea with lemon)

    sugar – Starry Night by Debbie Macomber (a sweet romance)

    water – On the Island by Tracy Garvis Graves (they’re stranded on an island surrounded by water!)

    spice – Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost (urban fantasy that would blend well into Bishop’s world, with a spicy romance)
