As it turns out, I read and reviewed 29 books in the first quarter of 2012, which is more than my usual because I’ve worked less this quarter and because I read as a coping mechanism and have been grappling with fraught decisions about grad schools and jobs and how to get our house on the market while living in it with three small children. At any rate, the links below are to my original reviews – books I found particularly helpful or noteworthy are starred.
- Don’t Kill the Birthday Girl
- Desserts to Die For
- Classic Crafts and Recipes for the Holidays
- Holiday Celebrations
- Simple Classics
- Celebrating the Pleasures of Cooking
- Making Crafts From Your Kids’ Art
- You’ve Got It Made
- Don’t Panic
- Urban Pantry*
- Maman’s Homesick Pie*
- Heal Your Headache
What is the best book you read this quarter?
