Bookshelf: as of late

Dec 24, 2014


This book has my whole heart. Easy to follow, down right delicious recipes. The Maple Apple Upside Down Cake made my father in law salivate. My courageous attempt at the yeasted pancakes ended in a polite, loving gesture by my then soon-to-be in laws and Mark choking down disks with the consistency of glue and smiling. Based on the breakfast alone I think they are scared for their sons well being. 

I couldn't get into this. I love the idea, snore at execution of explaining.

Faithful instagram follower with super high hopes for the book. Her story is nothing short of brave, I just couldn't keep turning the page.  Pretty heavy on the ballet terms, and since I failed ballet in real life (in my mind I'm the lead in swan lake), I was so lost. 


My favorite authors latest installment to the Shopaholic series. The story, plot, and detail were great until the ending. I'm still a little upset about it. At some point I'll read (I requested a copy from the library and failed to choose book so I got the CD, beavis) and hand out that last rose of like/dislike.


After reading this blog post I laughed till I cried, then gobbled up every last page of her book.  Raunchy, laugh out loud funny. You must. 

Jennifer got me hip on their twitter/instagram, and I'm currently about 1/3 of the way into the book. Hysterical, mouth-wide-open tales of toddlers and how adults "should" react to them.  Try it, you'll get a kick out of it.

  1. Added the last two to my list!
    Just picked up Land of Shadows (a who done it, with a female detective - yay ladies) by Rachel Howzell Hall. I was immediately sucked in, and have a really hard time putting the book down (sorry husband!). I've also downloaded The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. It's supposed to be as good (better?) than Gone Girl. So, clearly I can't wait to dive into that one as well.
