I love Book Scents #candles. These are based on the Outlander series. Brianna is my absolute favorite smelling candle. I light them every now and then. Usually when there's a power outage. 😄

I finally got around to making my second recipe from the tagged book: bacon and bleu cheese cake! (While it‘s a quick bread by Canadian standards, Lebovitz says the Parisians call this sort of thing le cake.) It doesn‘t look very flashy, but it‘s frickin delicious. The crumbled bleu cheese spreads through the whole of that spongy crumb and the bacon adds the perfect smokey element. Totally worth the million and one steps to prep the ingredients.

BookNAround Ooooo! I might have to drag this book out and read it for this recipe if nothing else! 2d
LaraS Oooo that looks and sounds so good! 😋 2d
xicanti @BookNAround there‘s a convenient recipe index in the back if you want to check out what he bakes and save the stories for later! 2d
xicanti @LaraS it‘s gonna be my delicious breakfast for the next couple days, with half tucked away in the freezer for later. 2d

i love libraries and this book shows the power and community in libraries during the darkest hours of war. great and easy read. the use of the two time periods was an interesting twist but glad the author spent more time in the 30/40s in paris.

I decided to give an audiobook for this one a try. While I find the story interesting, for some reason it was tiring to read it in ebook form. So, I'm spending this rainy Saturday afternoon under a blanket with an audiobook. Also, this is the first time I'm alone in our apartment since we moved three months ago. 📚📚📚

erzascarletbookgasm Hope the audiobook helps. I‘ve put this on hold already. 😕 3d

This is my second book by this author, after reading The Place. I wasn't totally convinced by it so I decided to give it a second chance. I guess there must be something that gets lost in the translation from French because I seem to be inmune to Ernaux"s writing. Her writing seems devoid of feeling, just a succession of events or thoughts. This book in particular seemed to be a list of complaints about motherhood.
