    I love Kitchens of the Great Midwest! The only way I’ve “read” this book, though is on audio. The two narrators are fantastic. I guess it helps being a foodie and also living in the Midwest. 🙂

    Always loving your book reviews. Thank you!

      I really liked it too! I need to try audio books. I usually listen to podcasts at work but I think an audio book would be a nice change.

    Thanks for the new list, Lisa! Our library system is running a reading program called “10 To Try” – there are 10 different “badges” you can earn for things like reading a banned book, reading a book set in a place you’ve never been before, etc. You log in your completed books and at the end you get a finishers badge and your name goes into a drawing to attend the library foundations annual Gala. I’ve finished 2 so far, but have been stumped on the badge named “read a book about food”. I thought maybe Kitchens of the Great Midwest might qualify, so thanks for the suggestion! I just finished a great book by Kelly Barnhill titled The Girl Who Drank the Moon. It’s juvenile fiction, but such a good read! And on the topic of novels about relationships, I can recommend Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf. They recently released a movie of it with Jane Fonda and Robert Redford, but it is SUCH a lovely book. All of Kent Haruf’s books are poignant and touching reads. His first was published when he was 41 and Our Souls at Night was published posthumously in 2015. Sorry I went on a bit, but books do that to me 🙂

      Cool! I will add those to my list! That’s a cool thing your library does.
