Who cares frankly? What we are concerned about is the new March releases! These will help us through winter’s last gasp!
When it is grey and cold and rainy what could be better than some home cooked Italian goodness? We are so excited for Giada at Home: Family Recipes from Italy and California by Giada De Laurentis to get us through winter’s last gasp. Creamy risotto with gorgonzola and mushrooms would certainly make me happy at the end of a sunshine challenged day!
Cabin fever got you down? Perhaps The Devil and Sherlock Holmes: Tales of Madness, Murder and Obsession by David Gram may not be your first pick. But it sure sounds fun! This is a collection of his essays originally published in The New Yorker. And honestly we have found that reading about the weirdness of others can make you feel way better about your own!
Girl who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen is looking to us to be perfect escapist fiction. We loved her book Garden Spell s with its charming blend of Southern storytelling and magic. Sometimes a little quirkiness is just what is needed.
Weed that Strings the Hangman’s Bag by Alan Bradley is the second Flavia De Luce mystery out of the UK. If you missed Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie which was the first one of the series, set aside a weekend and spend it with Flavia! Flavia is a brilliant 11 year old who lives in a village with her father and sisters. Everyone has a gift and it would appear that Flavia’s is solving murders.

Spring is on its way. We promise. But in the meantime you can’t beat a roaring fire and a good book. Why not spend these last days of winter with something new and wonderful?
