One of my goals on the list is to read 40 new books. In 1001 days, this is definitely more than do-able, but when I created the list, I had to make some of them very reachable and realistic. Thus, I created 40 books! An easy number I can reach. My goal is to exceed 40, but once I reach that magic number, I can officially cross that goal off! As I read each book, I'm going to blog about it. With my review and rating of the book. So, if you are ever looking for a good book to read, check out the newest feature of my blog.
I recently started using Goodreads to track the books I'm reading, have read, and want to read. It's fabulous! You can even "follow" your friends (kind of like facebook) and see the books they are reading! I have found some of the best sounding books on this site - unfortunately, all its done is add to my list of "to read" books. As if the list couldn't get any longer! Anyways, I'd love to follow you on Goodreads, so if you are a member, post your username below so I can look you up!
And now, onto the main attraction...
Introducing.....the book nook! And the first book to be reviewed is by the fabulous Mary Kay Andrews! Enjoy!
Deep Dish by Mary Kay Andrews
My Rating: 3/5
Goodreads Rating: 3.59/5
Goodreads Synopsis: Another delicious treat full of Southern sass, wit, and charm from the "New York Time"s bestselling author of "Savannah Breeze" and "Hissy Fit" Chef extraordinaire Gina Foxton doesn't expect anything to be handed to her on a platter. After years of hard work, the former runner-up Miss Teen Vidalia Onion is now the host of her own local Georgia public television show called "Fresh Start," and she's dating the show's producer. But when her show gets canceled - and she catches her boyfriend in flagrante delicto with the boss's wife - Gina realizes that she's meant for bigger and better things. Namely, a gig on national television. The Cooking Channel is looking for its next big star, and Gina is certain that she fits the bill. Trouble is, the execs also have their eyes on Mr. "Kill It and Grill It" Tate Moody, the star of a hunting, fishing, and cooking show named "Vittles." Tate is the ultimate man's man, with a dog named Moonpie and a penchant for flannel shirts. He's also a tasty side of beef with a swooning female fan base. All Gina has on her side are a free-spirited, college-dropout sister and a mother who calls "every single day." Little does Gina know, though, that she and Tate are soon to emabark on the cook-off of their lives, spiced up by a little ingredient called love.
My Review: I was disappointed in this book. I've read a few other books by Mary Kay Andrews and loved them! My favorite book of hers is Summer Rental. You must read that one! Now, don't get me wrong, Deep Dish had a cute story line, and had it of been the first book I read of hers, I probably would have loved it. But, after reading other books of hers that I loved, this one just didn't compare. And I felt I couldn't rate this higher than a three. But, no hard feelings, I will still read her books :)
