What kind of book are you reading right now?
I’m finishing up two eBooks: One is historical fiction and the other is young adult fiction. While I’m enjoying Susanna Kearsley’s Firebird and Gordon Korman’s One False Note (The 39 Clues Series, Book 2), I’ve been in the mood for more memoirs.
After reading Eat. Pray. Love. and Geisha, A Life years ago, it’s been hard to find nonfiction that would interest me. Then this year, it struck me how much I love food and reading plots that have descriptive scenes of cooking. Past books that made my mouth water are these:
Delicious! by Ruth Reichl
Bread Alone by Judi Hendricks.
Licking the Spoon: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Identity by Candace Walsh
Also, I was reminded of how I’d like to travel across the pond one of these days. This led me to read this book: Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman by Alice Steinbach
Lately, I’ve had an appetite to combine food, the written word, and travel. This is what our library has on Overdrive:
I have seven other titles added on my TBR:
Apricots on the Nile: A Memoir with Recipes
Ant Egg Soup: The Adventures of a Food Tourist in Laos
Sushi and Beyond: One Family’s Remarkable Journey Through the Greatest Food Nation on Earth
Consuming Passions: A Food-Obsessed Life
Shucked: Life on a New England Oyster Farm
Beyond the Pasta: Recipes, Language, and Life with an Italian Family
Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise.
I will either have to order the paperback or the Kindle version from Amazon.
Are you into memoirs? If so, what have you read?
