8. Quichotte by Salman Rushdie. This took some time for me to finish between having to wait for a new digital copy to become available and just took some time to get into. I love Rushdie, but the last few novels have been harder for me to get into. In the end, I liked the book though. 396 pages. (Finished 3 Mar 2020).

  1. Ama: A Modern Tex-Mex Kitchen by Josef Centeno. Another beautiful cookbook that I wish I thought I’d actually use more. 272 pages. (Finished 5 Jan 2020).
  2. Ketotarian: The (Mostly) Plant-Based Plan to Burn Fat, Boost Your Energy, Crush Your Cravings, and Calm Inflammation by Dr. Will Cole. My nutritionist sister has recommended a keto diet to lose weight, however I also want to eat more plants. I checked this out from the library to see if it would inspire me. It wasn’t a great fit (as I’m also not sure a true keto diet works for me either). 304 pages. (Finished 6 Jan 2020).
  3. The Testaments by Margaret Atwood. (The Handmaid’s Tale #2). The story of what happened after the end of the The Handmaid’s Tale, 15 years after the end of that story, we hear the stories of three new female narrators. 432 pages. (Finished 6 Jan 2020).
  4. Antoni in the Kitchen by Antoni Porowski. I love the new Queer Eye on Netflix. This cookbook from Antoni expands upon the lessons he teaches folks on the show, providing easy recipes to expand and build confidence in the kitchen. It was much better than I expected. 272 pages. (Finished 8 Jan 2020).
  5. Poilâne: The Secrets of the World-Famous Bread Bakery by Apollonia Poilâne. Its no secret I like bread, so when I saw this at the library I had to check it out. I created a new sourdough starter based on the formula in this book. Sadly I haven’t succesfully made a loaf with it yet. 288 pages. (Finished 11 Jan 2020).
  6. Where Cooking Begins: Uncomplicated Recipes to Make You a Great Cook by Carla Lalli Music. This book from the food director at Bon Appetit magazine was quite interesting with her methods of connecting how she shops to the way she cooks. 272 pages. (Finished 1 Feb 2020).
  7. BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts by Stella Parks. This book from the Serious Eats author, is one I cooked from before I checked out. The recipe for cheesecake was posted on Serious Eats and I was sold at first bite. 400 pages. (Finished 21 Feb 2020).
  8. Quichotte by Salman Rushdie. This took some time for me to finish between having to wait for a new digital copy to become available and just took some time to get into. I love Rushdie, but the last few novels have been harder for me to get into. In the end, I liked the book though. 396 pages. (Finished 3 Mar 2020).
