We had a meeting of the minds last night. The Book Hungry Club got together for our monthly read and greet and during which time I was reminded that I have not done an update read list since...well...October.
I am so ashamed.
So I thought this would be a good time to update you guys and give you my reading goals for next year.
I am shooting for twenty books a month next year. I know I can do it, and I will. For me the summer months are always bigger months because we spend so much time on the water. Anyway, here is my list for November:
Michael Symon's Live to Cook: This was a great book with a lot of info for beginning cooks plus I really liked the resources he included. There were some recipes using cuts of meat I don't think I ever want to try, but it's nice knowing I have recipes if I ever get a hankering for pig's ears.
Cook Like a Rock Star: 125 Recipes, Lessons and Culinary Secrets by Anne Burrell. I really liked the way this cook book was laid out. How she does the prep ahead of time. I have always cooked that way but it was nice to know I was reading a cook book where the chef encourages that completely.
Must Love Mistletoe by Christie Ridgway. This was a re-read for me. Since it's Xmas time and all. I loved it the first time and wasn't disappointed with my second go around. Mainly I downloaded this one because I found it for free on Amazon. Thank you Amazon!
Not Another New Years' by Christie Ridgway. I don't know how I missed this one the first time around, but was glad I snagged it when I did. Another cheap one from Amazon and I really enjoyed it.
Heat Wave by Richard Castle: This was a bookhungry selection and I even picked it. At the end of the day I wasn't overly impressed.
Head Over Heels by Jill Shalvis: The final in her Lucky Harbor Trilogy. Or at least the final in her first Lucky Harbor Trilogy. I have to admit I loved the male lead in this story way more than the female lead. He was just all male.
Freedom from PCOS by Katie Humprey: If this doesn't show you how diverse my reading goes, nothing will. If you don't know what PCOS is you wouldn't be interested in the book.
Against the Odds: Kathryn Shay is another must read author for me. All of her books from her back list are making their way to Kindle and I couldn't be happier. This is one of my favorites. I can't tell you why except Nathan, her hero is one I fall in love with each time I read it.
I have downloaded about 200 books onto my kindle to read. Some of them were free, okay, a lot of them were free and I am hoping to find some great authors in the mix. Every once in a while I get lucky. I will give you my December read as we closer to the end of the month. But tell me, what are you reading?
