Stacking the Shelves [36]



Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where we get to gab on about the books we've won, bought, or otherwise received in the past week.

This week has moved in slow motion. Latin is already kicking my ass, and it's been so cold I've mostly just been sleeping. But, I did get some reading done. So, little victories.

The Homesick Texan's Family Table: Lone Star Cooking from My Kitchen to Yours by Lisa Fain
My Paris Kitchen: Recipes and Stories by David Lebovitz
The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu
Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes


Purchased:

Week at a Glance:

  3. So many cookbooks and Alice books! I can't wait for these books to be put to use in our kitchen, and I'm actually looking forward to the vegan book (weird that I'd be excited for something that doesn't tell you to use pounds of bacon and cheese, I know).

  6. I also got The Truth About Alice this week and I can't wait to start it, it sounds like it's going to be emotional in a good way. Enjoy all your new books!

    1. It depends on what reader you use. I have a black and white kindle, so they look pretty bad on there. But when I use the adobe app on my laptop, they look great!

  9. Queen of Hearts has such a pretty cover! I also love the cover for that collection of Shakespeare's works; I've often thought about buying one, and it would have been a lot more economical than buying the plays individually, like I've been doing, lol. Enjoy all of your books, and thanks for stopping by!

  42. I like the concept of vegan cooking, and I really should do it more often. I can't have dairy...so I think it would benefit me (I can't have onions either though, so I find I have to take that out of many recipes). Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I'm curious, is the onion part of an allergy? I omit onions, but that's just because I don't like the taste.
