The Twilight Saga: The Complete Film Archive: Memories, Mementos, and Other Treasures from the Creative Team Behind the Beloved Motion Pictures (Twilight Saga) by Robert Abele

If, like me, your passion for the Twilight books and movies is boundless then you need to own this book. My husband gave it to me for Christmas and I have spent hours poring over it and, once again, steeping myself in the movie world of Twilight. This book has been lovingly crafted and is filled, like a scrapbook, with pictures, momentoes and information that any "Twi-hard" would love. Enjoy!

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Book Thief

I had heard great things about this book and knew it had been a bestseller, so, when I struggled to get into it for the first few chapters I just kept reading. And boy, am I glad I did. Don't get me wrong; this is a book with difficult subject matter (it takes place in Nazi Germany and the narrator is death) but it's definitely worth the read (in my humble opinion). The story is compelling, the writing is excellent and I haven't ever seen another book put together style-wise like this one.

Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar by Cheryl Strayed
Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

marathongirl, January 4, 2013

Throughout my life I've found that books are like people. Some books you enjoy, some books you hate, some books are difficult and some books are sweet and easy to spend time with for hours on end. Tiny Beautiful Things is that person that challenges you, comforts you and you just can't spend enough time with because they see all the way to your soul and they like what lives there. For me, Tiny Beautiful Things was as close to God Speak as I've read. It is filled with stories, cloaked in advice, that like a benevolent God, encourage you to stretch and grow, seek truth, question the status quo and always, always risk it all for love...

A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table by Molly Wizenberg
A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table

What a great read! I expected this book to be a fairly basic food-based memoir. In fact, it's a passionate love story. Love of food, love of family and finding true love. Oh, and did I mention that I dog-eared pretty much the whole book? I want to try ALL the recipes! Delish!

Gathering: Memoir of a Seed Saver by Diane Ott Whealy
Gathering: Memoir of a Seed Saver

marathongirl, December 1, 2012

I'm a huge fan of Seed Savers Exchange (SSE) in Decorah, Iowa. They have insured that thousands of varieties of flowers, vegetables, fruits and now, heritage farm animals, do not go extinct. They are a remarkable organization and a real treat to visit if you ever get a chance. The author of this memoir is one of the founders of SSE and she chronicles the decades long journey of the organization. I enjoyed learning more about this beloved non-profit that is safe guarding the genetic diversity of so much of our food supply.
