The Pioneer Woman Cooks by Ree Drummond
My mom bought this for me at a Borders closing sale. I'm a big fan of her blog and while I read her memoir a few months back I didn't have a copy of her cookbook. I have made a few recipes of hers in the past, although none from the actually cookbook, so I'm excited to give them a try. (And slightly unrelated at least to the book world, but she is going to have her own Food Network show later this fall, at least I think that's when it airs. I can't wait to watch it!)
The Secret of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig
My mom read this, enjoyed it, and figured I'd to the same. It is a series I've been meaning to pick up for a while, so I'm excited to finally get around to it!
Borrowed from a Friend
The Fallen: Aerie and Reckoning
The same friend that lent me the first in the Fallen collection last week lent me this one as well. Like the first I read which was really 2 books, this one is the 3rd and 4th in the series. I did read the first collection (review to be up later this week) and while I wasn't a huge fan, I've been told these ones are better and I'm still looking forward to going back to the series.
A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheenan
This is an uncorrected proof that due to be published this August. It is a YA dystopian, and sounds a bit like a retelling of Rip Van Winkle. I don't know a lot about it, but hopefully it's another one I'll enjoy.
That's it for me this week. We'll see if the next weekend is finally book free or if I'll be back participating yet again. In the meantime, what's in your mailbox this week?
