I loved the hell out of this book. It captures everything I feel about food and cooking. Food can be such a sexy thing. Preparing it. Cooking it. Eating it. When it‘s good; It‘s a religious experience. I liked the language and the rawness. It‘s a winner for me.

I‘ve been meaning to read this one for quite a while and it did not disappoint. The story was sweet and a little melancholy and the characters were endearing. It‘s recommended for 5th grade and up, and I think it‘s just charming.

Ok this is not YA. It has several triggering moments. I actually skipped a few chapters in the middle. The last couple of chapters saved the book.

I woke up around 2:15am, couldn‘t go back to sleep so I went searching for a book on CloudLibrary. The cover of this one snagged me and then the story caught me as well! EXPIRED BEFORE I COULD FINISH. I‘ll come back to it later.

I‘m going to be the unpopular opinion. I didn‘t hate it, but it didn‘t grip me. I only read it cuz the author used to live in my home town. I had no idea about Georgia Tann and the horrible things she did, so that was interesting. The book was just kinda slow and flat.

krayoncolorz I‘m reading this now and struggling...not sure if it‘s because I came off such an amazing audiobook or I‘m just not that into it. 5mo
Foragingfantasy @krayoncolorz 😕 it was sooo very meh, for me. I don‘t even think it was a wrong book at the wrong time thing, it just didn‘t do it for me. 5mo

Y‘all. I can‘t believe I did this, but I boxed up at least 15 boxes of books and got rid of 3 book shelves. I had to do it. I was taking over the house and living space for my family. I actually feel a little relieved now that it‘s done. I filled all the little free libraries in town, donated some to the library and am giving the rest to my sister in law who is building a mini-version of the Beasts library. I feel good.

I was so excited for this book. It took me ages to read it because my library hold came at a bad time and then I had to wait for it to come up again. It also took a long time because I was so distracted by how different a book it was from Widow of the South. If I hadn‘t had it on audio I wouldn‘t have finished it. The last few chapters saved it for me, but I didn‘t love it.

This is just what I was needing. I‘ve read many of Lewis‘ books and it‘s really specialty hear about Joys life and how their friendship blossomed into love. Also, seeing Lewis as a real person who knew him, sees him is refreshing.
