Chocolate & Vicodin: My Quest for Relief from the Headache That Wouldn't Go Away by Jennette Fulda
Chocolate & Vicodin: My Quest for Relief from the Headache That Wouldn't Go Away

knittingandcoffee, January 1, 2012

As someone else who lives with chronic pain, it was refreshing to read Fulda's take on dealing with her chronic headache. So many memoirs of those with chronic conditions gloss over the frustrating day-to-day or they work too hard to inject a moral. Fulda just tells it how it is.

Super Natural Every Day: Well-Loved Recipes from My Natural Foods Kitchen by Heidi Swanson
Super Natural Every Day: Well-Loved Recipes from My Natural Foods Kitchen

This isn't Advanced Cooking by any means, but after reading this cover to cover (yes, really) I feel like I can manage to feed myself using nothing more than the contents of my CSA box and a handful of pantry staples. The photography is very inspiring. The recipes are hearty and there are lots of oatmeal options, which completely wins my heart.

Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy) by Mira Grant
Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy)

Once the characters settled in to themselves--somewhere towards the end of the first half--the story was excellent. Until then, I kept being taken out of the story by cliched dialogue and the reliance on character stereotypes. There was some repetitiveness about Georgia's eyes and about being tested that could have been cut out for brevity's sake. None of it was so bad that I abandoned the book, but I did find it a little distracting. That being said, I ended up falling for this book in the second half. Notice, I still give it 4 stars. It's a very good story once the world building finally ends and the story begins. I'm eager to read the next book in the series.
