This book is STUNNING! And it isn't just for children. It would make an absolutely lovely gift for book lovers or visual artists of all ages. I keep looking through the pages and wanting to Instagram every single one.

Wheelmen: Lance Armstrong, the Tour de France, and the Greatest Sports Conspiracy Ever by Reed Albergotti and Vanesa O'Connell
Wheelmen: Lance Armstrong, the Tour de France, and the Greatest Sports Conspiracy Ever

I cannot stop talking about this book.

It's well-researched and written like a soap opera. It's been a while since doping in cycling has been in the news, but I remember a lot of what this book describes as it happened in real time -- and having the back story is eye-opening, both disappointing and inspiring, and simply shocking. That said, I'm so happy to have gotten to learn about Greg LeMond!

What We Eat When We Eat Alone: Stories and 100 Recipes by Deborah Madison and Patrick McFarlin
What We Eat When We Eat Alone: Stories and 100 Recipes

I love this book. I love browsing through it when I'm standing in the kitchen by myself eating something like sardines on toast or English muffin 'pizza' (a childhood favorite I had forgotten!).

It is simply a fantastic idea for a book, filled with recipes that satisfy and charming, colorful illustrations.

Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
Between Shades of Gray

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, I got a chance to dig into this unfortunately named, but incredibly beautiful book. It's the first novel of Ruta Sepetys, the daughter of Lithuanian refugees who was born and raised in Michigan: a nicely written story with brilliant female characters. The imagination and clarity with which Sepetys creates Lina is touching, inspiring, and lovely. I also love how this book is written for all ages -- with short, engaging chapters and seamless shifts in chronology that add depth to already deeply shocking story.

Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri
Dragons Love Tacos

There are treats hidden in every beautiful illustration, an awesome story, and humor! I read this book before going to bed last night.

If it had been published decades ago, I'd be one of those kids insisting this one be on repeat.
