Food Books

I got burned out on a book this spring.  I read, and read, and read, and it STILL took me six months to finish what I thought was going to be an easy read.  I just wasn't really into it, but I felt so committed that I couldn't give up.  Thankfully, I have a friend who helped to redeem me from the pit by suggesting two awesome books that she had enjoyed.  I highly recommend them if you need something lighter and maybe a little different.

The first is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.  It's narrated in letters back and forth between all of the main characters.  I laughed out loud a couple of times, and cried too, and then cheered.  Good vacation reading, indeed.

I just started the second one but I can already tell I'm going to like it.  It is A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg.  I'm way inspired by this one.  Each chapter is about people or things she loves, and ends with a recipe that ties it all together.  I'm inspired, and I'm only three chapters in.
If you're looking for something to try out - and if you need something light and easily digestible - try these out!
