Behold the Pretty Books!

Behold the Pretty Books!
I received some especially pretty books through the post over the past two weeks:

Insurgent by Veronica Roth
by Sarra Manning
Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book
The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz

Behold the Pretty Books!
Glitch by Heather Anastasiu (e-galley)
The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach (e-galley)
One Moment by Kristina McBride (e-galley)

I have an ice cream machine that I’ve only used once so I decided to buy some ice cream cookbooks (because it’s difficult trawling through hundreds of internet recipes). I love food photography and so I never regret buying cookery books. I think the first recipe I’m going to try is Oreo Mint. I was also extremely excited about receiving Insurgent, which I already reviewed here.

  1. Great haul. I love the ice cream recipe books, I have lots of cooking books but I dont seem to have the time or money to actually make things from them :(.

    YAY for Insurgent. I have Glitch myself. One Moment and The Art of Fielding sound really good but I have way too many books to read I don’t want to request them in case I don’t get round to read them.

    Take a look at what I got this week

    • I know exactly what you mean! I choose the Ben & Jerry’s one because it uses simple ingredients. The Perfect Scoop recipes will be a bit more expensive. I keep saying I’ll request less NetGalley books but I haven’t so far, oops.

  2. I can’t wait to get and read “Adorkable”, the books sounds (and looks) so good. And I’m still waiting for my copy of Insurgent.

    Happy reading!

    • I wonder whether Adorkable is a little young for me, but it’ll be interesting to compare it with contemporary books I read as a teenager!

  3. I am actually drooling at the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream book!

  4. Yeah Insurgent! I love the purple cover, it’s very cool. Oreo mint ice cream sounds beyond good.
    I really liked The Art of Fielding!

  5. I am trying to figure out the magic with the ice cream cover. Cones do not stand like that…

  7. ICE CREAM BOOKS AND A MACHINE! *want!* I think I should just invite myself over to your house…LOL. Doesn’t One Moment sound fab? I got it too and cannot wait to read it! Enjoy 😉
