I haven’t gotten much reading done with surgery and all but I have managed to knock some of the items off of my reading list this year.
A book you can finish in a day – My best friend just got the entire set of Lemony Snicket books so we have been reading them together and we have managed to read a book a day when we have time to. They are so small and fun.
A book recommended by a local librarian or bookseller – The book Eleanor was recommended to me by a person in Barnes and Noble. Luckily, I managed to snag a free copy off of the internet.
A book you’ve already read at least once – I also restarted the Chronicles of Narnia series all over again. I just love those books.
While I’m discussing books, I was able to snag a copy of the book Tasting Rome by Katie Parla and Kristina Gill. I was really excited to get this book because my husband will be studying abroad there this summer and I wanted to experience a smidgen of the culture with him since I wont be able to accompany him.
The photographs in the book make everything in the book look so yummy. I also love how they give you the Italian names for all of the meals and the accompanying definitions. It makes me feel fancy when I say them to people and oddly enough, it has been helping Josh with Italian.
I will say that a majority of the recipes we were unable to use because we either don’t like seafood or don’t drink or cook with alcohol but I know that is not the problem for most people. The recipes we could try though were so delicious! Especially the deserts, LOL.
If you like Italian food and are adventurous, this is a really good cookbook to have.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
