Dec 2018 What Are You Reading?

In the lead up to the holidays, I managed to read a few books (mostly nonfiction once again).  But once I got a bit closer to the holidays I wasn’t reading as much.  So here’s what I read:

Nonfiction books:

  • Make Your Own Rules Diet by Tara Stiles
  • Will Write for Food: The Complete Guide to Writing Cookbooks, Restaurant Reviews, Articles, Memoir, Fiction and More… by Dianne Jacob
  • The Girl’s Guide to Starting Your Own Business by Caitlin Friedman and Kimberly Yorio

The Make Your Own Rules Diet was something I picked up at work that sounded interesting.  The other two books are nonfiction books I’ve had for YEARS.  I read Will Write for Food to learn about writing a recipe for Sustainably North; I’m glad I finally read it because it was super interesting to learn about the passion that goes into food writing.

Fiction books:

  • Tyke & Dusty by Bill MacDonald

I don’t know if Tyke & Dusty is 100% fiction, or if you’d classify it as creative nonfiction because MacDonald writes the factual life stories of his two cats, but puts in what he thinks they were thinking and saying.

This month, I’m finding it a bit hard to pick my favourite book.  Even though I didn’t rate it very well, I did enjoy reading the Make Your Own Rules Diet.  The other two books, while good, were a bit harder to just sit down and read (they read a bit more like text books I guess).  Tyke & Dusty was really well written too though, so I guess it’s a toss up between the two.

So what have you read over the last month?  What was your favourite book?

  1. Stoned by Aja Raden was fantastic! It’s a non-fiction about jewelry and precious stones (diamonds, emeralds, pearls) and how they shaped history. Very cool.

    Happy New Year!
