The Passage by Justin Cronin
The Passage

Erin Kendrick, January 30, 2013

This book feels epic. It almost feels like 3 books in one: before the outbreak, during the outbreak, after the outbreak. It is horrifying in it's accuracy of how something like this would actually happen and creates a very good image of the individual people that would be effected and how groups of people could cope to deal with a new world.

Bel Canto (10 Edition) by Ann Patchett
Bel Canto (10 Edition)

Erin Kendrick, September 22, 2011

This is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. It is romantic and emotion tugging without being sapping or over the top, something that I think would appeal to a variety of readers. It was surreal and dramatic and beautifully slow and I wanted to savor it and draw it out. I have mixed feelings about the epilogue, but have come to terms with it upon reflection, as it is not a typical ending, part happy, part tragic, but it tied things together well. I highly recommend it.

Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook (2003) by Better Homes and Gardens
Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook (2003)

Erin Kendrick, January 7, 2011

This is my go to book for baking, it has the best recipes for peanut butter cookies, ginger snaps, and fruit crisps. It also is a great cook book to have if you don't want to have 10 cook books (like I do) and it has enough of a variety to be your "only" cookbook, as these are tried and true recipes. The one downfall is that it doesn't have many ethnic or alternative (non-meat) recipes, so you'll have to go elsewhere for that.

This really is the BBQ Bible! It has such a huge variety of recipes, you could make your dinner on the BBQ all summer long! The shrimp recipes are especially wonderful.

Clean House Clean Planet by Karen Logan

A great reference book for anyone trying to detox their house from hazardous cleaning supplies. The ingredients are cheap and mostly around the house already (baking soda, vinegar, dishsoap, etc.) It offered the simple and easy to implement idea to write the ingredients of your homemade cleanser on the container so that as soon as you run out you can easily make it again (without having to find the book, look it up, etc.)
