Castle Waiting #01: Castle Waiting by Linda Medley
Castle Waiting #01: Castle Waiting

nicole d, May 26, 2014

A fun fairy tale adventure with some familiar characters told with a modern, feminist bent. A really enjoyable story (continued in vol. 2) and beautiful illustrations. Just as much fun for adults as kids.

Longbourn by Jo Baker

A fabulous re-imagining and retelling of the classic Pride and Prejudice. Rather than focus on the story and characters we already know and love, this novel focuses on the servants who are only briefly mentioned in P&P. It's kind of like the Upstairs/Downstairs or Downton Abbey take on Pride and Prejudice. The characters are complex, the story compelling and details of events of the times, like the Napoleonic Wars and the slave trade, are really interesting.

Slow Cooker Revolution, Volume 2: The Eas-Prep Edition by Americas Test Kitchen
Slow Cooker Revolution, Volume 2: The Eas-Prep Edition

Another great cookbook from America's Test Kitchen. They had great recipes in their first volume of slow cooker recipes, but those recipes didn't seem to save me time very often. In this book the recipes really are super easy--just dump the ingredients in the crock pot and a few hours later you have a fabulous meal. I cook out of this book at least once a week and it hasn't let me down yet.

The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell
The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet

nicole d, January 30, 2013

A fascinating story written with exquisite historical detail. The story starts simply enough--a Dutchman in the 18th century sets off for a clerkship at a Dutch East India Company trading post in Japan in order to earn his fortune so he can marry the woman he loves. But he doesn't expect to encounter so much corruption that will test his morals, meet a beautiful Japanese midwife, befriend a cantankerous doctor, or parter with a friendly translator to expose an evil monk. This was the sort of novel that kept me surprised and completely engaged from start to finish. The story kept getting better as it went on and I didn't want it to come to an end.

Engangingly written, and a mysterious, atmospheric, and beautiful story. Even better than the Shadow of the Wind!
