To join this weekly meme hosted by MizB, just answer these three questions:
WHAT DID YOU RECENTLY FINISH READING?
I don’t think I’ve ever read any books written in the graphic format before–but I LOVED reading Relish: My Life In The Kitchen by Lucy Knisley! I really like to cook, and I adore reading about food and cooking, so this book is right up my alley! It contains the author’s memories of growing up as the daughter of a chef and gourmet, as well as thoughts about how our experiences with food help make us who we are. Plus—there are recipes! (I’m definitely going to try her recipe for carbonara!) I thought the format of the book might be distracting, but Knisley’s charming drawings PERFECTLY complement her text, and I simply love her writing voice! I borrowed this book from my local library, but I know I’ll be buying my own copy soon to add to my collection of food writings. I’ll say it one more time—I LOVED THIS BOOK!
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?
No One Could Have Guessed The Weather by Anne-Marie Casey is a novel about Lucy, a native Londoner who relocates with her husband and two young sons to New York City after they suffer a financial crisis. The story covers her friendship with three NYC women and her growing love for her new home city. I’m in the mood for a good friendship novel, and so far I’m enjoying this one.
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL READ NEXT?
As usual, I have absolutely no idea what I’ll be in the mood for when it’s time to pick another book!
How about you? Have you read either of these? What did you think about them? What have you been reading lately? Please share!
