Chick-Lit novels with recipes

International bestselling author Jenny Colgan writes delicious little books that I consider total chick-lit. Similar to author Sophie Kinsella, most of Colgan's novels are set in England or France, and are fun reads filled with terms like "bugger" and "sod" that make the stories that much more engaging to me. The books I have read so far are Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe, The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris, and Sweetshop of Dreams. Each story is unique, and all contain recipes guaranteed to make your sweet tooth tingle.

This is where you find the book that the movie was based on

This Is Where I Leave You is now a movie playing in theaters, but before it was a movie, it was a book by Jonathan Tropper. In the book, main character Judd Foxman’s father Mort has just died and his marriage to Jen has fallen apart after Judd caught her having sex with his boss. Now Judd finds out that his father wanted the family to sit shiva, a Jewish custom in which the family receives condolences at home. He joins his family at the family home in a New York suburb.

Dogs and humans are alike in many ways

The Mountaintop School for Dogs and Other Second Chances by Ellen Cooney was definitely a change from my normal reading. Seeing the word dog in the title of the book is what initially caught my eye, but once I started reading I soon realized this was not a cute little dog story, but a tender story of broken people and broken dogs and how they help one another. It took a few chapters to get into the book, but I soon discovered that dogs and humans really are very much alike.
