72 Reasons to Be Vegan – Gene Stone, Kathy Freston

January is long gone, but reading books on veganism is one of my guilty pleasures. Despite having been plant-based for more than fourteen years now, they keep me motivated and occasionally help me find some new, interesting information. While I generally prefer reading recipe books --a decent area of my bookcase is dedicated to those, actually--, some titles, such as anything written by Jonathan Safran Foer, are simply too good to pass.

The Meaning of Colour Book Tag

The pile of work to do has become so big that I can't even look at my computer without freaking out, but I really want to be lazy today. Procrastinating is fun, after all. So, instead of being reasonable, I decided to look around for nice book tags. When I found this one on Lynn's Book Blog, I knew it'd be challenging enough to keep me entertained for a long time.

Resolutions for 2021, Here We Come

Want to know something odd? I'd never celebrated a New Year's Eve before last year. I'm not big on celebrations in general, with the sole exception of my kids' birthdays.

And then everything went to hell.

Deadly Vows – Keri Arthur

My latest read has been Deadly Vows, the sixth installment of the Lizzie Grace series. I'm so accustomed to the world built by Keri Arthur that being back to Lizzie and Belle's cafe felt like visiting a couple of old friends. Before telling you about this visit, let me warn you --I should write a disclaimer about this somewhere on this blog-- that all the major spoilers for this book are hidden in white text, but some minor ones might be inferred anyway. Read at your own peril.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue – V. E. Schwab

Adeline LaRue is born in a small village in France at the end of the seventeenth century, where she grows up feeling that she's meant for more than living dying and being buried in the same place. She wants to be free, to be her own person, so when her family starts talking about marriage she is scared, and starts praying to the old gods. She is warned: no matter how desperate or dire, she must never pray to the gods that answer after dark. And yet she does, and this is how her real story begins.
