Friday I'm In Love: #2

Happy Friday everyone! The world outside my window looks like a snow globe. So pretty! 

Since I am feeling under the {very cold} weather, I am curled up under a blanket on the sofa tonight. Snuggling up with a good book is a favorite thing to do in the winter. Here are a few new books for today's "Friday I'm In Love".

The Smitten Kitchen, a cookbook from blogger Deb Perelman. We found a lot of her recipes this summer and loved them! She cooks in a tiny New York City apartment, which makes her very careful about the number of ingredients she uses.

The Husband List by Janet Evanovich and some other person. I've never read any of Evanovich's books, but I know some people who are big fans, so I would like to check her out. This one caught my eye, and might be fun with Valentine's Day right around the corner. :)

Pride & Prejudice --this is a baby board book, perfect for a friend's baby shower. I love that Cozy Classics has released some of my favorite novels for the littlest readers! 
I also love mom memoirist Katrina Kenison and can't wait to read her newest book
Magical Journey: An Apprenticeship in Contentment

House at Riverton, described as being for fans of Downton Abbey, looks intriguing. 

I am pretty sure that What the Most Successful People Do on the Weekend does not resemble what I'll be doing, but whatevs. Laura Vanderkam has a knack for writing about time management in a way that is very engaging.

Life in Grace e-book

Finally a $5 e-book that I can't wait to check out: "31 Days to a Heart of Hospitality" from the author of the Life in Grace blog. She says it is not about having a perfect home but welcoming others with our imperfect hearts. 

A little bit of fiction, a cookbook, a children's book, and lots of self-improvement. Those last books might be my favorite because they always have a happy ending!

Which seems like a fitting way to end this week... Have a wonderful weekend one & all!


  1. I'll have to try to find House at Riverton...sounds interesting! And I am a huge fan of Downton Abbey ever since the first episode :-)


  2. I got the complete works of Jane Austen on my Kindle for $1.99! Love Jane, should be good reading this winter. Feel better soon!

  3. I'm sending the Jane Austin link to my sister-in-law. She's Obsessed.

  4. I love self-improvement books too. I just read "What the Most Successful People Do on the Weekend" and there was a lot of good advice about planning the stuff you really want to enjoy. I'm not perfect, but self-improvement books help me be a better version of myself.

    I'm a Pride and Prejudice fan too, and I've seen the movie about a dozen times! Get well soon! :)
