My TBR: http://msbooklover89.booklikes.com/post/880318/bout-of-books-10-0-readathon

 

Day Three:

 

Books Finished: 0 (total so far: 2 books)

Pages Read: 175 pages (total so far: 549 pages)

Currently reading: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

 

Okay, so after finishing My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick yesterday and being completely disappointed with it, I decided that I needed to read Harry Potter to bring me out of my slump and cheer me up! On page 175 so far and I feel like I want to abandon the rest of my bout of books tbr to keep reading it!! We'll see how that goes...

 

Now on to the challenge for today...

 

Challenge #3: Book Pairings

http://myoverstuffed-shelves.blogspot.com/2014/05/bout-of-books-10-this-made-me-think-of.html

 

In this challenge, you pair a book with something that reminds you of it whether it's another book, movie, song, food, object - whatever!

 

1. Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks

Pairing: Sleeping with the Enemy (movie starring Julia Roberts)

- A lot of people have compared it to this movie because the plot is similiar, a girl running away from her abusive husband and while that may be true, they are both unique in their own way! Both great stories and if you liked either of them, you should check out the other!

 

2. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series by Ann Brashares

Pairing: A friendship bracelet

- This four girls in this series, Carmen, Lena, Tibby, and Bridget have such an amazing friendship that anyone would love to have and they are always there for each other. They are the kind of girls that would wear friendships bracelets to show their love for each other - although in this book their friendship bracelet takes on the form of a pair of jeans...

 

3. Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Pairing: Summer Lovin' (song from Grease)

- Honestly, all her books make me think of this song because they are perfect summer reads that include romance and adventure! If you haven't checked out any of her books yet - you need to! Any great summery song would do but this was the first one I thought of!

 

*****

 

Hope you all are enjoying your current read and Bout of Books if you have joined :)

The Soup & Bread Cookbook: More Than 100 Seasonal Pairings for Simple, Satisfying Meals - Beatrice Ojakangas Read my full review: http://bit.ly/123b0f3 or http://bit.ly/10jPpANMy opinion: What a beautiful cookbook this was. The book was loaded down with unusual, beautifully laid out and explained recipes for breads, soups and sandwiches that were divided into seasonal recipes. Now, I must admit that I did prefer the recipes for the sandwiches and breads over the soup recipes. Pictures of finished product were also plentiful. I think if I did have a criticism of the book, due to its difficulty, I would like to have seen more detailed breakdowns of working with yeast breads.

A Year in Food and Beer: Recipes and Beer Pairings for Every Season (Rowman & Littlefield Studies in Food and Gastronomy) - Emily Baime,Darin Michaels Read my full review: http://bit.ly/ZPuJDh4.5/5 Stars My opinion: Alright, I have to say that this was a pretty cool cookbook. I am familiar with wine pairings and so much is written on them, but not a whole lot on beer pairings or that all beers aren't Miller light or Budweiser. I am going to lay out in bullet points what I like and didn't like about this book:Likes: Beer catagories are laid out beautifully with rich, detailed descriptions about color and taste The authors give very clear instruction to the storing and serving of beers right down to the glassware. For the most part the recipes were incredibly tasty looking Gave step by step instructions for hosting a beer partyDislikes: Recipes were not well laid out. Instead of using step by step instructions, the authors used paragraph format, which are more difficult to follow in a kitchen setting. Photos looked amateurish for the book print quality Because this book was so detailed and targeted towards an audience new to beer pairings, it would have helped to have photos of the beers and ingredients next to the descriptions rather than in inserts in the middle of the book.
