So…that was an unexpected hiatus, huh? I did not expect to be in a book slump so early on in the year; it’s really put a dent in my reading. But for now, let's catch up with each other - and in the process, maybe get to know each other better? Like, what's your favourite kind of cake? As you can see, very important questions ahead, so beware ;)
I finished Dangerous Girls the other week, which I really enjoyed. Fast-paced and thrilling - just the kind of book I need to pull me out. I’ve just started The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, which I’ve heard a lot about over the years. I have a feeling it’s going to get real interesting... I just met Noah Shaw. I also have my eye on Far From You. Have any fast-paced, unputdownable book recs for me? They'd be much appreciated!
In case you didn’t know - I love cookbooks. Especially Family Food, Pete Evan’s latest. I've been thinking I might start reviewing them. Is that something you'd be interested in? Are you a fan of cookbooks like I am?
My Dive Into Diversity book for January was The Secret Side of Empty. I’ll have a review up soon, but I really liked it. It was the first book I’d read about an undocumented immigrant and it definitely moved me in ways I didn’t expect it to. I have some catching up to with all the reviews/links left in last months link-up, but it looks impressive from what I’ve seen! We’ll be posting the February linky next Tuesday so watch out for that. Don’t forget, you can link up anytime throughout the month. What recent diverse books have you read for the challenge? What's up next?
My Boxing Day order from Bookoutlet arrived! Just a few books…. ha! Which books did you pick up during the sale, if any?
Oh, and I made this birthday cake for my uncle. It’s a Portuguese flag cake, with a chocolate, Tim Tam middle. What's your favourite cake? I'm a huge fan of carrot cake with lemon cream cheese icing. Hmmmm
Hopefully I'll be back into the swing of things soon. Until then, bear with me, OK? And let me know what you've been up to!
