Easy Peasy…

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good meaty, sink-your-teeth-in novel, but sometimes, you need an easy “palate cleanser”… so here are a few of those I’ve been reading…


Hygge and Kisses by Clara Christensen claims to be the first “hygge” novel, and is *exactly* what you would expect… harried London girl, bad relationship status, lost in her early twenties goes to a Danish cabin, cooks, relaxes, falls in love, yada yada. Very treacly, but easy and comforting as well!

I Hate Everyone But You by Gaby Dunn and Allison Raskin was a very cute, epistolary (texts and emails) young adult/new adult novel about two best friends going to school on opposite sides of the country and growing up… but will they grow apart? Very cute, very easy to read, good recommendation for somewhat reluctant new adult (female) readers…

The Comfort Food Diaries by Emily Nunn was an easy memoir to dip in and out of while on vacation. Emily had a great job, fiancee, and apartment in Chicago when, in the blink of an eye, it all went away. She then went on a journey to meet friends and family old and new, and break bread with them. Easy reading… and tasty recipes!

I also read Hardcore Twenty-Four by Janet Evanovich (just like cotton candy… fun while it lasts, then totally forgettable)… Stone Fox Bride by Molly Rosen Guy (wedding advice from all across the spectrum of people)…  The Wicked + the Divine by Gillen McKelvie and Wilson Cowles is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel, that completely and utterly confused and annoyed me… and finally I read American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang, a graphic novel that I actually was able to read!
