Welcome to the Twitterature link-up! For the lowdown, head over here, or try this Cliff Notes version: this is the place to share short, casual reviews of books you’ve been reading. (It’s fine if they’re not 140 characters; do them in a style that works for you.)
Here’s what I’ve been reading lately:
Dinner: A Love Story: It All Begins at the Family Table, Jenny Rosenstrach.
Memoir/Cookbook mashups are my favorite. If you liked A Homemade Life this one’s for you. Read it, gift it, cook it. #yum
Zen in the Art of Writing: Essays on Creativity, Ray Bradbury.
What you need to write well: Zest. Gusto. Curiosity. I want to read All The Stories now that I know what inspired Bradbury to write them.
The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction, Alan Jacobs.
Repeat after me: Reading should be fun! I thought about abandoning this one after the 1st chapter–I’m so glad I didn’t! #bookworm
The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are, Brené Brown.
@BreneBrown is amazing. Watch all her TED talks, read all her books. This girl can preach and you need to hear it. #mustread
Bread and Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table, Shauna Niequist.
I wasn’t expecting to ugly-cry my way through a book about FOOD. But good golly, this cookbook/memoir is incredible. #getitnow
It Starts With Food: Discover the Whole30 and Change Your Life in Unexpected Ways, Dallas and Melissa Hartwig.
Great for anyone contemplating a #Whole30. Biggest takeaway: you can DO this. Biggest downer: the words about wine. #inspiring #practical
Betsy and Tacy Go Downtown, Maud Hart Lovelace.
The continuing adventures of Betsy & Tacy…with Mrs. Poppy this time! She’s my favorite. Makes me nostalgic for the childhood I never had.
