I thought I would do a little book review for you all. I have book club tonight and we will be reviewing Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children. For what it was, a YA mystery, it was a rather enjoyable read. I took my time reading it and it was an easy read. It was partially narrated with old (turns out, authentic) pictures. I guess there are people out there who search flea markets and garage sales in order to find old and odd photographs. Interesting.
The next book I am finishing up is the Mind Gym. This one I only read when I need motivation to workout so it has been slow going. That and there are too many baseball references. I am taking some of the things to heart however. Last night at BifG I tried to do my longest plank. My previous time was 2 minutes and 14 seconds. I was dying when my trainer told me I was at the two minute mark. I channeled some of the things I learned from the book and created a mantra which I repeated 10 times. "Don't Give In" I only made it to 2 minutes and 20 seconds....but still!
The next book I want to review is one that HM bought me Monday night. He took me to Barnes and Noble and told me to pick out a book, ladies choice, gentleman's treat. I chose the following:
Organize Now! It is a pretty interesting little book. It is a week by week manual for getting things organized and making life easier. I just started it, but I would highly recommend it.
The last book I want to cover today is the most important.....the brand new Salt Lake City Jr. League cookbook. It is finally out and it is awesome!!!! The best part is, any of your sweets can have your very own copy!!!!
This is one of the best Jr. League cookbooks I have ever seen and it is definitely the nicest one put out by the Salt Lake City league. The theme is 'recipes for great gatherings'. There are a lot of yumminess within the covers.
Jalapeno Goat Cheese Frittata? Um yes please! If you want to order your own copy and be inspired to cook more, whether for your family or house guests, you can do so through this link.
Order a copy today....unless you are related to me (by blood or marriage) because you might already have one reserved for you. Just Saying.
