The Tao of Martha by Jen Lancaster

I decided to read this after I found myself screaming, "I'm trying to make these holidays f-ing magical!" at no one in particular.

At first glance it would seem that the author and I were at similar places - wanting to understand how to actually enjoy

I picked up a used copy of an advance copy which I've never done before. I'm going to assume that the only changes were formatting and typos (there were some odd line breaks and missing quotation marks) and not any sort of real change to the story.

Something from the Oven by Laura Shapiro
Rate this book
Clear rating
I wanted to like this more than I did, but some of that is on me. The description clearly states that this book delves into the personalities of the era behind the culinary history. While Julia Child will always remain fascinating and Poppy Cannon di ...more

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondō
Rate this book
Clear rating
I picked this up (at the library, it seemed like an insult to the author to buy something I didn't want to keep) to try to wrap my head around the hype--and backlash--about it. In general, I'm pretty good at decluttering. I love to get rid stuff, I d ...more

I first encountered the title Slaves of New York as a small child in an even smaller town. I'm not sure where I saw it, probably in the glossy New York Times magazine that my parents still subscribed to despite abandoning what I at the time assumed t ...more

Groveton by Charlotte Brown

This is an Acadia local history book - they are all formulaic, and honestly that's part of their charm. I have no idea how much of the formatting is dictated by the publisher and how much push back the author can possibly give.

It was interesting to

I bought this on impulse after quite literally judging the book by its cover. It was a really rough week and it just looked pleasant. (And then it was a rough enough month that I didn't actually start reading it for a few more weeks.) I wasn't disapp ...more

Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

I could not put this down, and as a result I tore through it during Thanksgiving weekend. A very kind friend sent me this to me as part of a care package because I was having a really rough month. And she nailed - this is laugh out loud funny. Especi ...more

Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman
Practical Magic

This book wasn't at all what I was expecting - not that I really had a clear idea of what it would be other than about two sisters from Massachusetts with a potentially magical heritage. I greatly enjoyed it nonetheless. I have no sisters, nor have I ...more

Perfection Salad by Laura Shapiro

Perfection Salad opens up the (mostly) forgotten world of domestic science - an attempt by social reformers to improve the lives of the poor through teaching the science of cooking and homekeeping. Additionally, however, it was an attempt to elevate ...more
