Lara Lara said: " Wah! Why isn't the next one out yet??? Booooooo!

So yeah, I'm really enjoying this series. It's just good, fun fantasy--a little bit ridiculous at times, a little bit angsty, a big bit addictive, for me anyway. Hurry up with the third one, Chima! :)

I absolutely loved Moreno-Garcia's Signal to Noise, so I was super excited to read more of her stuff. Only...I wasn't super excited about the description for this one. Vampires just...I'm bored with them, you know? And yes, there are all sorts of rav ...more

Vegetarian India by Madhur Jaffrey

Clear rating
This one...is a little overwhelming. It's huge, there's tons of stuff in it, and a lot of things aren't pictured, so it's hard to get an idea of what they actually are. But a number of the recipes sound really good. I think this is just a little more ...more

Nutrition Stripped by McKel Hill

I apparently put this one on hold at the library at some point and then forgot all about it. Not sure where I came across it, but...it's just not to my taste. I do like the way Hill will pick a certain base recipe and then include three to five varia ...more

Cook Korean! by Robin Ha
Rate this book
Clear rating
Saw this on the new non-fiction table at work and was like, "Whaaaaat? A book about Korean food in graphic novel format? Clearly this was made for ME!" About 80% of this book is actually useless to me recipe-wise, as most things have meat or seafood ...more

Remember how much I liked The Encyclopedia of Early Earth? And how I said the only thing lacking was an emotional impact? Well, holy shit, did Isabel Greenberg bring it this time! I finished this book just sobbing my eyes out. So much strength. So mu ...more

I loved this...so much! It's actually the first book in a long, long, long, long time that I have stayed up way too late to finish because I just couldn't bear to stop reading, and when I got to the end, I still had the castle and the characters so i ...more

This one really surprised me! There aren't pictures of everything, maybe only every 1 in 5 recipes is photographed, but I actually didn't even care because the food all sounded so good (except for the section about the U.S.--what is up with those guy ...more
Lara is on page 97 of 272 of In the Country We Love: I'll be honest, I'm having a really hard time getting through this book because...well, it smells. Like...leather, I think? A lot of people really love that smell, I know, but it's always made me feel sick to my stomach. So I have to hold the book really far away from my face, but then it's hard to see. I might have to request a different copy! :(

Oscar Wilde
“Good heavens, I suppose a man may eat his own muffins in his own garden."
"But you have just said it was perfectly heartless to eat muffins!"
"I said it was perfectly heartless of YOU under the circumstances. That is a very different thing."
"That may be, but the muffins are the same!”
Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

L.M. Montgomery
“It is ever so much easier to be good if your clothes are fashionable.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

“History, in the end, is only another kind of story, and stories are different from the truth. The truth is messy and chaotic and all over the place. Often it just doesn’t make sense. Stories make things make sense, but the way they do that is to leave out anything that doesn’t fit. And often that is quite a lot.”
Paul Murray, Skippy Dies

Robert Falcon Scott
“Had we lived, I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood, endurance and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman. These rough notes and our dead bodies must tell the tale.”
Robert Falcon Scott, The Diary Of Captain Robert Falcon Scott

“When the heart is happy it forgets to grow old.”
Jeannie Gunn, We of the Never Never
