Review: Milk Bar Life by Christina Tosi

Review: Milk Bar Life by Christina Tosi

I’ve never been to Milk Bar but have heard wonderful things about the delicious treats that can be found at its NY storefront. As such, I was very excited to receive a copy of Milk Bar Life for review. Milk Bar chef and owner Christina Tosi promises simple, comforting recipes with a nostalgic flair.

The book itself is beautiful. The pages are thick and glossy with beautiful images of the featured recipes. Peppered throughout the book are Tosi’s stories about her connection to the recipes and where the came from. Her personality really comes through and the stories were probably my favorite part of the book.… Read more »

Review: Night Film by Marisha Pessl

Review: Night Film by Marisha Pessl

Night Film haunted me for almost a year with just the title and the cover alone. When it first popped up on my radar I was instantly drawn to it. I’m always down to read a good slow build mystery that has me guessing around every corner. When the story is really well written, I like to feel as if I’m the main character playing detective and trying to figure out the “who done it”. Night Film by Marisha Pessl literally had me hooked from the first page and left me completely in the dark (in a good way) throughout the whole of the story!

Audiobook Review: The Martian by Andy Weir

Audiobook Review: The Martian by Andy Weir

It’s going to sound like I’m telling you spoilers, but almost everything I mention here is already on the jacket cover or takes place in the first few chapters of the book. Astronaut Mark Watney ends up stranded on Mars with just his wits and a limited supply of resources with which to survive. Not only must he figure out how to make do until someone comes to take him back to Earth (or he dies of misadventure), he’s got to figure out how not to go crazy. Luckily, he’s got a diverse set of technical skills, a sarcastic sense of humor, and a few decade’s (uh, the 70’s and 80’s) worth of classic TV and music to keep him company.
