Sometimes we need a story that will take us far away from the mundane world. A story that breathes magic and submerges into your pores. Netflix recently has tried their hand at anime and have created a story that does just this. The adventure anime is called The Seven Deadly Sins.
Sometimes we all need a few tips and tricks to help us in the kitchen. Even having some master recipes under our belt would be helpful. I am an amateur cook and no where near perfecting it. I am still taking baby steps but I am still trying. Until then I have to rely on cookbooks for assistance. Hence my latest find and love in the cookbook section of my library, I highly recommend my latest find for the amateur cooks out there like me called America’s Test Kitchen Cooking School Cookbook.
Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries are one of my favorite television shows to watch. I am a huge fan. However, many fans do not know that this beloved series started as a book series by Kerry Greenwood. I was able to previously review Queen of the Flowers to vote between book and the show. Now, I am picking up another book from the series, and once again voting on which version is better. So here is Murder in Montparnasse: Book vs. Show, Round 2!
History is important to learn from. It can teach us about how they lived, their thoughts, and how we have evolved in society since then. Based on the recommendation of my history professor, I recently completed the autobiography of Harriet Jacobs named Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl.
We have seen him on TV. Seen photos of his amazing creations online. I never thought I would get a chance to see his creations in person. Then, I recently been gifted the book Cake Boss: Stories and Recipes from Mia Famiglia by Buddy Valastro.
Being a writer can be intimidating especially if you are trying to figure it out. Even as a blogger, I have to studied the art of writing. An art I thought I would never have to study. I have read several guides to writing and each write about the do’s and don’ts. They offer harrowing tails of rejection letters and finding agents. Which is good information but not what I am looking for in encouragement. However, my most recent read has become the guide I never knew I needed.
I was a big fan of Animal Crossing during my middle school years. I loved the cute little animal avatars and customized characters. There land changes with every day and each season. So when I acquired the latest edition of Animal Crossing: New Horizons I dived into the game with same eager I had back then.
I am not the biggest lover of donuts. I love the classic cinnamon, sprinkles, or chocolate. I am picky. The best is when they come from a local place like the corner shop that is still run by the same family for generations. However, I decided to venture a little further from my local corner shop on my most recent donut hunt.
The Power of Habit has been circling around my to-read-next list. It has been on some of the top reading list and book clubs have been raving about it. I finally sat down and spent some time completing The Power of Habit. In my opinion, THIS BOOK IS FANTASTIC! If you haven’t picked up this book, you are missing out. I believe that everyone should read this book at some point in the new year. Why? I will give 5 simple reasons.
Typically if I heard the name GOOP. I would think of some slimy greenish blob that holds no appeal. However, GOOP now refers to the Netflix series with Gwyneth Paltrow. If you aren’t familiar with Gwyneth Paltrow is a celebrity turn lifestyle guru. I originally had no interest in this show. I think the lifestyle she promotes is a little outrageous. The trailer held about zero appeal to me. I only got intrigued to watch it after Stephen Colbert took a swing at the show and brand. He was on fire and his lines were so funny! So down the rabbit hole I went, I watched the first season of The GOOP Lab.
