Quick + Simple by Jacques Pepin

Absolutely fantastic cook book. All of the recipes are intentially simple and quick to make. I especially enjoyed the Pea Puree with Mint recipe. 

 

 

 

 

Cassie recommends: 

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid 

An aging Hollywood star finally agrees to tell the story of her life, including her seven widely-discussed marriages...but she'll only tell it to Monique, an (up 'til now) unknown magazine reporter. Like all of Reid's novels, it's a page-turner, full of drama and scandal with depth and meaning as well. Perfect for those interested in the Golden Age of Hollywood.


 

 

Caroline recommends:

Leave the World Behind by Rumaan Alam

"A magnetic novel about two families, strangers to each other, who are forced together on a long weekend gone terribly wrong." I loved the tension created by the author because we never learn exactly what's going wrong, but it's clear there is some calamity happening all over the world.


 

 

Susan recommends:

The Rose Code by Kate Quinn

Three female codebreakers at Bletchley Park struggle in this male-dominated World War II top-secret installation. Post-war, they must reunite to solve one more code that will identify the traitor that shattered their friendship and sent one to an insane asylum.

 

 


Morgan recommends: 

Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston 

When rivals, Alex Claremont-Diaz, first son of the US and Prince Henry of England have a confrontation, damage control is necessary. To make it seem as though all is well, Alex and Henry are forced into a fake friendship. As time goes on they find themselves in a secret romance...in the middle of an election year.

Whereabouts by Juhmpa Lahiri 

Lahiri creates stories so beautifully and this book won't disappoint. We learn to enjoy the simpler things in life through the day-by-day, sometimes mundane, experience of the narrator. I found this short book to be a pleasant but intriguing beach read.
