A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg – This book has been a pure joy to read. It is comprised of short essays about important moments in the author’s life and always involves food. The writing is beautiful and most of the recipes seem fairly simple to make. I’ve been taking this book to work with me since the chapters are short enough to read a couple on my lunch break. I am definitely taking my time with this one.
The Paper & Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie – I am not very far into this book and already I love it. I could tell from the first chapter that I was going to enjoy my time with it. The writing has good flow and the characters are fun and relatable. I so desperately want to join a book club like this; it reminds me of The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society. I like the idea of being part of a book club where everyone reads different things and then talks about it with the group.
The Worst Witch – I have a deep love for children’s fantasy/supernatural movies and TV shows, especially if it involves witches and vampires. The Worst Witch is currently on Netflix and is an adaptation of The Worst Witch series by Jill Murphy. This series follows Mildred Hubble as she discovers that magic exists and there is a witching school near her home that she begins attending. As you can probably guess, things don’t go too well for her. It’s similar to Harry Potter but a lot lighter in tone and takes place at an all-girls academy. The show is heartwarming, very cute, and funny. It is meant for younger audiences, but if you have an appreciation for children’s stories you might want to give this a try. Season one is probably my least favorite so far. I am only a few episodes into season 3, but it’s great so far.
