A la Mere de Famille: Recipes from the Beloved Parisian Confectioner by Julien Merceron
A la Mere de Famille: Recipes from the Beloved Parisian Confectioner

Kimberly Uyyek, April 26, 2014

WOW! I just got this book so I haven’t had time to try any of the recipes, but that doesn’t really matter. I (and my French students) have enjoyed poring over the pages. It is a feast for the senses, tactile and visual, from the lovely orange and green cover to the beautiful photos of the confections. It’s a history lesson and a memoir. It’s food porn. I am looking forward to baking with my daughter, which makes me think that this is the perfect Mother’s Day gift, especially since the French word for mother is in the name of the shop/title.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Gone Girl

This book kept me up reading it. The main characters are extremely interesting and the story line was not what I expected, but I loved the surprise.

Practice Makes Perfect French Sentence Builder (Practice Makes Perfect) by Eliane Kurbegov
Practice Makes Perfect French Sentence Builder (Practice Makes Perfect)

Kimberly Uyyek, November 20, 2011

As an IB French teacher, I was "super contente" to find this workbook. It has all the elements required for the writing section of the IB exam since it includes both formal and informal French writing styles. It also includes current texting abbreviations. Merci Eliane Kurbegov.

The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire That Saved America by Timothy Egan
The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire That Saved America

Kimberly Uyyek, September 26, 2011

Timothy Egan does it again. The Big Burn is a non-fiction book that reads like a novel. The characters in both Washingtons (DC and the state) are extremely vivid. It also taught me somethings about the history of the US and the Pacific Northwest.

Artemis Fowl #07: The Atlantis Complex by Eoin Colfer
Artemis Fowl #07: The Atlantis Complex

Kimberly Uyyek, January 5, 2011

My children and I have enjoyed all the audio versions of the Artemis Fowl series, but #7 has made my 10 year old daughter and myself laugh out loud almost non-stop, or sit on the edge of our seats. It is amazing how Eoin Colfer can come up so many clever twists on the adventures of the young genius and the Lower Earth population - fairies, centaurs. Nathaniel Parker reading (interpreting) the stories truly brings the characters to life. It probably goes without saying that you should start with the first book, but they're all fun to listen to.
