Fast pace and gripping, this monstrous novel is a real page turner. Great detail and character development. Can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy.

Case Histories: A Novel by Kate Atkinson

I can't decide how much I liked this book. At first I thought it was slightly boring but pushed through because I rarely put a book down once I start. As it progressed, however, I grew to care about the characters and make connections between the different story lines. In the end, I thought the novel was entertaining but a bit bland and predictable.

Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed
Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

Pengi, July 23, 2012

I'm exhausted after reading this book! Strayed's writing is so vivid and full of emotion that I found myself laughing and crying along with her. I also couldn't put it down, starting yesterday evening and finishing it at 3 this morning so maybe not quite enough sleep.

Wild is an adventure and a quest to find oneself after a lot of heartache and loss. It's about a brave woman who hikes a thousand-plus miles alone in the wilderness to look back at where she's been and look forward to what she wants to be in the future. Recommended!

Blood, Bones, and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef by Gabrielle Hamilton
Blood, Bones, and Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef

Pengi, March 18, 2012

I fully enjoyed this memoir! The author's love of good food made me hungry and her descriptions of life outside the kitchen were vivid and full of highs and lows that both made you cheer for her but also realize she just a regular person trying to make her way in the world doing things she loves with people she loves. Most of the time, anyway. Highly recommended!
