I usually hate self-help books, but this one grabbed me. I read a few lines in the bookstore and was hooked, I had to have it. The author is very practical and down-to-earth in her approach, her voice is fresh and humorous and her tale captivating. Unlike the "Eat, Pray, Love" heroine she does not embark on a journey around the world, she decided to change her own small corner of it step by tiny step. I was impressed by her achievements and will borrow some of her little tricks for making life more rewarding and, well, happy!

My Life in France by Julia Child and Alex Prud'homme
My Life in France

bookbabeBG, January 23, 2012

I loved this book. I am not a foodie, but Ms. Child has such an engaging style of writing I couldn't wait to follow her wherever she cared to take me. She creates a picture of a country, of a culture, of a cuisine she loved so much - dedicated to love of life and hedonism. She also imbues the book with her sorrow of a disappearing way of life - one that cherishes the art of cooking, that invests hours in creating the perfect culinary experience. A way of life that is slowly disappearing in front of her very eyes even in the country that proudly proclaims itself the birthplace of classical cuisine.
I also loved the persona of Ms. Child - optimistic, open to new experiences, full of zest for life and new tastes. The whole book left me with an optimistic feeling and I was sad to finish it - it was like saying goodbye to a much loved friend. This is a book I will be sure to reread in future.

Hit List (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #20) by Laurell K. Hamilton
Hit List (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #20)

bookbabeBG, September 2, 2011

Every new Anita Blake book used to be a must-read for me. I used to buy the book as soon as it was out and devour it. I loved the chase, the police procedural, the sitting on the edge of my seat worrying about how Anita will get out of each new scrape. Now it is more like cringing - what new orgy will she get into. Still, I have this morbid fascination and can't stop reading the books. I wonder, how far will she go next?
