The Joy of Vegan Baking: The Compassionate Cooks' Traditional Treats and Sinful Sweets

brookbrook, November 8, 2012

everything i have baked from this book has been fantastic. too often i have to try six different versions of vegan baked goods to get a recipe to work just right, but not with the joy of vegan baking. it lives up to the name, really!

my son LOVES these books! the animated characters superimposed on real life photos perfectly reflect his world, and he completely connects to the story. mo willems has once again captured both our hearts and mind.

A Hologram for the King by Dave Eggers
A Hologram for the King

brookbrook, August 5, 2012

I love reading this book. I have never written a review before finishing a book, unless of course it was too bad to read. Which is not the case here. I can't read in the car, otherwise i would be finishing it now. Admittedly, every time I read Dave eggers I am almost shocked by his incredible storytelling. I begin each book with an unfair and completely unfounded assumption that it will be all about him, and written with a boring hipster dialect that's been done a thousand times. But I am so far off; he is the real deal. A truly gifted writer, one of the best of our generation. Telling fact through fiction is no easy feat. He is incredibly perceptive. And funny. And totally invisible in each story that you just know he is the only one who could have possibly written it. I love his writing, and feel lucky to be around while he is. Read this if you haven't already, and his other books, too.

Bossypants by Tina Fey
Bossypants

brookbrook, August 5, 2012

I should preface by saying I truly love tina. She can do no wrong, except maybe for that hair commercial. And maybe for aspects of this book. But who cares, she does so much more much more than right, and the title alone makes it worth four stars. But only 4 because, well, it's not that funny and not written all that well. At least in comparison to tina off paper. Still, buy it, read it, love it for the good parts!!!!
