Up to six books read this month, but no Bingo… it seems that a little strategy might be called for in the second half of the month.
Categories added this week:
Books about food are some of my favorites. I blame being raised on Food Network, but, let’s be honest, you don’t have to know how to proof dough, mix up icing, or candy lemon peels to enjoy a story about sweets.
Here are a few books that revolve around sweet treats that you should definitely check out:
- Baker’s Magic by Diane Zahler
- Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
- A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
- The Doughnut Fix by Jessie Janowitz
Links will take you to Goodreads.

If I had a superpower, I think I’d like to skidoo into book worlds and have a real fantasy adventure or explore the secret rooms in an old Victorian house. If it got too scary, I could always hop back out!
Question of the Day: Which book setting would you love to visit?
Some of my favorite fantasy reads. A lot of these writers have heavily influenced my ideas of what a good book should be. Imaginative folklore and compelling villains. Worlds that unfold as beautifully as if they’re characters instead of places. Heroes and heroines who believe in themselves and put their talents to good use. Friendships that melt your heart, and humor that keeps you coming back when you need a good laugh.
Question of the Day: What are your favorite fantasy books to recommend to friends?
That feeling when a book cover really grabs you, but it’s in the middle of a series…
Question of the Day: What book covers have grabbed your attention recently?
Sometimes things that seem like good ideas in theory, in practice turn out to be the worst kinds of boneheaded blunders.
—Once Upon a Marigold by Jean Ferris
Step follows step,
Hope follows Courage,
Set your face towards danger,
Set your heart on victory.
