I finished Sarah Addison Allen's "The Girl Who Chased the Moon" -- a nice feel good story of domestic fiction mixed with YA romance with only a hint of too sweet, a tangy mystery, and spicy fantasy. I would read more by this author as a "palate cleanser" from more grisly works.

I finally found and finished a book! I thought I was going to turn into Dawn who would always post about a book and then hate it. The book is called The Queen of the Tearling and one would think it is a fantasy but it seems that it is a post-dystopic world. The writer is great at world-building. I thought that the characters were strong, with strengths and flaws. It is not a romance although maybe one develops somewhere along the line as it is, best of all it is a series, so that I will presumably not be searching for something to read for a while.

How ironic that I came to this forum at this exact moment!

First of all, I didn't read anything while on vacation.

Since returning, I've tried all the books that I'd wanted to read while away. None of them took, which I assume means that it's not the book -- it's me. My brain is still in vacation mode. (My employer will be thrilled about this, no doubt.)

In regards to work, today is Day 1 on a new heavy-duty project. We all know what that means. Oh well. The books will be there when I'm ready, right? Right.

I love the good ol' palate cleansers. I'm weird because my palate cleansers are post apoc and zombie books. ahahahahahaha! I decided to admit it before Dawn has something to say about it.

What a delightful, loving book! He fell in love with food and cooking by watching and helping his adoptive Swedish mother and grandmother in their kitchens while growing up. You can just feel the love in his writing. Facinating info on the Swedish culture.
He's on Food Network with some regularity. Seems like a he's a good person in addition to being a talented chef.
