Hamburger: A Global History (RB-Edible) by Andrew F. Smith
Hamburger: A Global History (RB-Edible)

WY, July 18, 2015

I especially liked how Andrew Smith makes a broad swath of history of one subject very approachable and sustains interest. Some of the new information that I learned while reading this book is how fries became a popular side dish due to World War II rationing and also how in 18th century England that high quality beef was known to come from Hamburg, so Hamburg steak was named to market lower quality ground beef as a higher quality product.

Dragons in the Waters by Madeleine L'engle
Dragons in the Waters

WY, April 12, 2015

Simon Renier is taking a seemingly simple journey to South America with a cousin. However, in between realizing that this cousin may not be who he claims to be, the struggle over an heirloom painting, and deeply buried family mystery, Simon has a lot of growing up to do on this trip to figure out who he really is.

A beautifully written novel on love, sisterhood, and finding happiness, even if you are a witch. The book centers on two sisters, one who follows her impulses and the other who tries to control her life and create happiness through conventionality. Both sisters have to learn how to explore their desires and what really makes them happy and fulfilled.

A beautifully written story on sisterhood and love, who also happen to be witches. While one sister follows her impulses, the other sister tries to button down her life to appear as normal as possible. Overall, both of them have to learn that their attempts to control or not control their lives has a different effect than intended while still working towards becoming and being happy and fulfilled.

Chocolate: The Consuming Passion by Sandra Boynton
Chocolate: The Consuming Passion

WY, March 30, 2015

This book is almost as good as eating chocolate! It's definitely funnier, which is satisfying in a different way. I loved each section so equally well that I can't make up my mind which is the best part. Trying to choose between reading about milk chocolate, or semisweet, or even bittersweet chocolate is as difficult as figuring out which form of chocolate I like the best. In short, if you have ever liked chocolate for a fleeting second, you're going to love this book.
