If you‘re still considering books for #Booked2023 for the #weirdreview prompt, maybe consider this book.

Lois is an AI programmer, and she gets a job working with robot arms. Her grandmother was also a Lois and they belonged to a club called “the Lois Club”, in which ALL the members are called Lois. She starts baking sourdough bread after being given a starter, and the loaves HAVE FACES!

Weird and wonderful, I loved it.

JamieArc Perfect! I‘ve been meaning to read this book for a long while AND I needed a book for this prompt! 4d

Interesting and easy-paced. No twists or turns but a fun following of Lois through her new found hobby turned business venture. Short chapters for my fellow ADHD readers. Good choice for an audio book. If you liked "Convenience Store Woman" you'll like this one, too. ?

This was a delightful, light-hearted story. Lois works in IT but when she is unexpectedly gifted a sourdough starter with a strange personality, she falls in love with bread baking and enters the farmers market community.
I loved the magical realism and quirky characters.

I just couldn‘t get through this: it engaged me at the beginning but I got disconnected from the main character and the plot: the weird workplace and the weird alternative market were too much! It was my #Booked2021 prompt for #BakedGoodsontheCover

Cinfhen Ha!! Bravo for giving it a try...magical realism isn‘t my thing at all 😉I couldn‘t get through this book by the same author (edited) 2y

“Your little venture begins with a ramshackle cart at the outermost corner of a far-flung farmers market. The Market of the Dead. In a year or two, having established your dedication, you are invited to the Ferry Building. This is your audition. The right person sees you, and the right person is assuredly here, canvassing stalls, and you are springboarded, granted a small storefront in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood.”

I have mixed feelings about this one. It started out delightful and whimsical, then turned so odd. Like cloudy-with-a-chance-of-meatballs odd. 🤷🏻‍♀️ It was well-written though and beautifully narrated.

Meh. I didn't love this audiobook, though the narration was fine. It's a story of a woman who is given a special sourdough starter and what happens to her in her tech life with the starter. Implausible stories are not for me, so maybe this is why I didn't care for it. This is a fast read/listen. #litsyAtoZ challenge

The one chapter that stuck with my most after reading Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential was the one about "the bitch." I lost it because sourdough seems like an actual, living and thinking creature. It does what it wants, not what you expect it to! In culinary school, ours kind of slumped off the shelf we left it on overnight. ?

My next round of #Booked2021 recommendations tackles the #Winter #bakedgoodsoncover prompt.

If you're a fan of cozy mysteries, this should be easy-peasy. I tried to include as many non-cozies as possible (although one or two snuck in!), when coming up with some options for this prompt.

The Secret, Book & Scone Society is written by a regional author I discovered a few years ago, and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book!

This is the other book I finished yesterday & it is quite a different tone from Making Faces!! Sloan flirts with the idea of scifi so well - this isn't actually scifi, but we are on the cusp of it so to speak.

Lois works for a company that is perfecting robotic arms. She likes her work but feels like she is in a bit of a rut. When the brothers who own her favorite carry-out have to move away, they entrust her with their special sourdough ⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) starter. Thus begins a whole journey for Lois as she not only learns to bake bread, but is drawn into a whole different community of people. I literally can't describe this book. There isn't exactly a whole lot going on, yet I had trouble putting this book down. The chapters are short, Lois is very likable, & the whole story feels so random yet possible despite the fact that some of the situations are so crazy. (A literally underground ⬇ 2y
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) farmers' market where people make food using weird science??) I honestly can't explain this book, but if you enjoyed Sloan's other book (Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore) then you will probably like this one, too. It has that same floaty feel to it, where you aren't sure if it's taking place now or 20 years in the future, gently snarky humor, and likable characters. 2y
ShyBookOwl I loved this one. I especially loved the magical realism element and the way it brings together the traditional and the tech-world. As a woman who never expected to end up in tech (and loves reading and crocheting), it really spoke to me. Fyi - I'm a tech writer, not a developer, but still 🤷🏽‍♀️ lol 2y

This novel is completely charming, funny, weird, and sweet. It also really, really, really made me want a big crusty loaf of warm sourdough bread. I did find a couple of the “twists” to be predictable. But that is a very minor issue compared with the comfort I got from Lois and her bread.

I started off loving this book about a young corporate woman who learns how to bake sourdough bread, and her world is subsequently changed. It was intriguing, fun, completely enjoyable. However, the last half of the book was certainly less entertaining and believable as the beginning, and I found myself liking it less and less. I still enjoyed it, but felt it fizzled out for me as the book went on.

This is such a fun book, I may need to revisit Mr Penumbra‘s 24-Hour Bookstore.

Can you guess the results? 😏 🌱 🎶
