Who doesn’t love a good taco?  I’m sure there are some out there, and that’s cool because it means more tacos for me, right?  But if you are like me and are a taco lover, then this cookbook is for you.

I’ll admit, I was kind of curious how someone could write an entire cookbook on tacos without overlapping or becoming repetitive.  The Taco Tuesday Cookbook did not disappoint! Continue reading “Review: Taco Tuesday Cookbook by Laura Fuentes”

What I read last week:

When the Lights Go Out by Mary Kubica

I just finished this on Sunday and don’t know what to think.  There was one heck of a twist at the end and I’m not sure how I feel about it.

I feel awful, I thought I had reviewed this and I hadn’t.

Dahlia’s life was on track.  A sucessful law student on her way to a brilliant career ahead of her, she had everything going for her.  Then, by a stroke of bad luck, she runs into the wrong person at a party and is brutally assualted.  Not having any memory of that night, she does everything to get on with her life as best she can. Years later, while working as a paralegal, she stumbles across some co-workers watching a video of her assualt and her world is turned upside down in an instant.

Hosted by: The Book Date

Before I get into what I’ve been reading, I have to say, I stumbled across this neat site called Blind Date with a Book.  It’s a really neat concept – you get a huge selection of books and a few words to describe them, but no title or author.  I splurged and ordered two books and THEY ARE OUT FOR DELIVERY RIGHT NOW. So, when I get home tonight, I’ll have two brand new books. Continue reading “Monday: What are you reading?”
