#MOvember Another crazy work week so I‘m trying to catch up with prompts.

This book is a pick if you like sorta holiday (it starts & ends in December) rom-coms. Jess moves to London for her dream job, rents a room in Notting Hill & is smitten with flatmate Alex who‘s friends-with-benefits with another flatmate. The book follows the year from their POVs. What I #Crave is Nigella‘s Alcoholic Hot Chocolate with LU biscuits. recipe/review link👇🏻

DebinHawaii Link to full review & crave-worthy hot chocolate with rum recipe: http://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/2019/11/the-book-tour-stops-here-review-of-we... 1mo

#Movember #day6 #Crave The novel I‘ve just finished fits this prompt perfectly. Anna Kate, the new owner of the cafe craves home & family, her patrons at the cafe crave the messages from loved ones her pies bring, Natalie craves strength & independence, Cam & Aubin both crave peace. Seelie craves having her son back & Pebbles just craves the company of Otis. Everyone in this town has something or someone they crave. #lovemakestheworldgoround

Cathythoughts I could eat the cover of that book 🙃 it‘s so gorgeous 1mo
Laughterhp Loved this book! 1mo
Blaire @Cathythoughts yes. This 👆. 1mo

I don‘t care that this book has already been posted multiples times today 😂 my husband and I #crave Chrissy‘s biscuits and gravy recipe almost every weekend. So good 🤤

Pamwurtzler Try the split pea soup with crispy hot dogs. So good! 1mo
Tamra Mmmmm that sounds delicious. 1mo

Cinfhen Great photo 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻and you shared a favorite recipe too!! 1mo
janeycanuck Omg, her smashed potatoes are worth the price of the book alone (though I can‘t remember if it‘s in this one or the second one...) Did you see she just launched a website? 1mo
Reviewsbylola Who is in charge of making them? 😆 1mo
saresmoore I just watched the second episode of David Chang‘s “Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner” on Netflix—he and Chrissy tour Marrakech together and it‘s so fun! 1mo

I #crave good coming of age stories. This one is old but timeless (at least from what I‘ve been told. It‘s still on my TBR.) Marjorie is a young woman trying to make it on her own when she is caught up in a torrid love affair. #MOvember

jillrhudy Hey, it happens! 🤷🏻‍♀️ 1mo
Cinfhen I don‘t know why but I always think of Barbara Streisand when I think of this book 🤷🏼‍♀️I‘m going to suggest this for my bookclub 😃 1mo
Reviewsbylola Beware, it‘s a chunkster! @Cinfhen 1mo
Cinfhen I saw! Maybe it will be a good summer read for our bookclub 👙 1mo

I don't plan my next reads too rigidly: I usually have a few candidates that have been on my shelf for awhile, and when I finish a book I bring them out and see which I #crave in the moment. Usually I have a one word prejudice in my head - e.g. devastating, innovative, difficult, intellectual, etc. But it's not until I read the first sentence or two that I really know what I want. One of these four will probably be next 🤔

vivastory My Name is Red is stellar 1mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego An Untamed State is one of my all time favourite books. Heavy, but worthwhile. I wish Gay wrote more fiction. 1mo
Kdgordon88 An Untamed State is devastating and so damn good! I‘m with @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I wish she would write more fiction as well. 1mo

Tamra I have Freshwater coming up soon on my audio holds list. 🤞🏾 1mo
batsy Nice! I haven't read the Gay; I read the Smith in college & loved it a lot then. The Pamuk & Emezi are recent reads & both are quite brilliant. 1mo
merelybookish OMG I love On Beauty! 1mo
jillrhudy Every time I plan my next few reads all my holds come in at the library at once, digital and print! 1mo
Billypar @vivastory It's been on my list for awhile even before I bought it, so I'm pretty excited. 1mo
Billypar @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Kdgordon88 This is great to hear because this will be my first time reading her fiction - I loved both Hunger and Bad Feminist. 1mo
Billypar @Tamra I'm so curious based on the reactions I've read! 1mo
Billypar @batsy Nice - it looks like I can't go wrong: I have a good feeling about all four of these. It will be a tough choice! 1mo
Billypar @merelybookish I'm reading Howard's End now in anticipation of it. I've been struggling with whether to read them back to back, or just somewhat close in time. It will be my first Smith, only read her essay collection so far. 1mo
Becker Untamed state is very intense. I loved it. It packs s punch. 1mo
Billypar @jillrhudy That happens to me all the time with audio holds. I just had two come in recently- I was going to listen to a podcast tonight, but I feel pressure now, lol 1mo
merelybookish @Billypar It's my favorite of her novels! 1mo
Tanisha_A I loved reading My Name is Red! Super haul! 1mo
Cinfhen Untamed State was brutal!!!! But I loved it!!!!!!! 1mo
Billypar @Becker @Cinfhen For a book to be both brutal and still get such positive reader response tells me it must be a good one: looking forward to it! 1mo
Billypar @Tanisha_A MNIR hooked me from the first sentence in the bookstore, so I'm already intrigued! 1mo
youneverarrived The two on the right are both AMAZING reads 💙 1mo
Billypar @youneverarrived Nice- I'm looking forward to both very much! I feel like I can't go wrong with what's coming up 🙂 1mo

DAY 6 #Crave | Today, my youngest had a rescheduled field trip to the pumpkin patch. I was craving extra caffeine just knowing I‘d be spending the day with a bunch of excited kindergartners. 🤣 One last pumpkin spice latte for the season! And since chaperones had to meet the buses at the patch, I arrived early and grabbed a few pages in this steamy page turner.


Cinfhen I‘ve heard this book is really good!! I haven‘t read this author yet 1mo
Cinfhen Have fun 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃 1mo
Chrissyreadit Hope it was a good day! 1mo
britt_brooke @Cinfhen I‘m loving it so far. When I read her most recent, Verity, I thought it was my first by her, but then realized I‘d read her YA series “Slammed” several years ago. Quite enjoyed that, too. I always think I don‘t like to read romance, but pretty much every time I do, I enjoy it. I think it‘s the tension. 😆 1mo
britt_brooke @Chrissyreadit Thanks - great, but exhausting! 1mo

Phryne ordered some champagne in my audiobook when I was on the way home and it made me #Crave something fizzy, so I stopped off at the supermarket on the way home.

I‘m not #sorry I received the Persephone Biannually, but I‘m sorry for what their magazine does to my #crave for new books 😅 I‘m trying to control my riges by reading this not-so-light, but very sweet book, and so far, it is working 🙌


BarbaraBB That magazine is such a delight! 1mo
Cinfhen Oh wow!! A little pre-birthday treat 1mo
Kalalalatja @BarbaraBB and inspirering! My tbr grows quite a bit when it arrives 😅 @Cinfhen I have wanted to buy a Persephone books for years, and I think this year might be the year it happens 😄 1mo
