Finally the moving saga has come to a close, I can finally get back to a routine and what I love… books!
I’ve already accepted that these past months have demolished my hopes for completing the two reading challenges I started in January. I’ll do what I can, but I’m not too stressed. Sometimes life gets in the way of all well laid plans.
Now onto September…
Bird Box – Josh Malerman
Challenger Deep – Neal Shusterman
Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic – Alison Bechdel
Tell the Wolves I’m Home – Carol Rifka Brunt
I’ll also be finishing up The Phantom Tollbooth and The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle and writing reviews for both.
Most of my twenties were plagued by mediocre cooking, filled with microwave dishes and pasta. A few years ago I had the one-two punch of finding out I was severely allergic to eggs and diary. After the panic subsided, I had to learn how to cook, as it was easier to avoid these popular ingredients.
What started out as fear turned to love, as over the past couple years, the more my confidence has grown as a home cook, the more I appreciate the art of the whole process.
Recently I decided to move from Pinterest recipes to actual cookbooks, and as I was making a ridiculously long wishlist a thought started to form. Maybe after I do some cooking, I’ll do some writing.
On the 5th I’m happy to announce that I’ll be posting a review of Jet Tila’s 101 Asian Dishes You Need to Cook Before You Die. Pretty much I’ll just go over my experiences with cooking a few of the dishes, but there won’t be any of the recipes listed! My hope is that if you have an interest in cooking, then my small adventures into home cooking will inspire you (and maybe you’ll go forth and buy).
Another love I’ve haven’t written about in a long time is film, and I’m so happy to be diving back in. Some great movies have come out this year, and I’m ready to discuss! The last week of this month I’m going to talk about some of my highlights from the first 8 months of 2018.
