Sparkly Green Earrings: Catching the Light at Every Turn

Melanie Shankle

Price: FREE

I have anxiously awaited this book since the first I heard of it being in progress, since the Big Mama blog is one of my daily moments of me-time. Melanie’s writing style is a breath of fresh air in a world of pretension. The chapters are fluid and the book is organized perfectly. I found myself continually wanting to read portions of the book out loud to whomever would listen. Green Sparkly Earrings did for me what the best books do– it made me laugh, cry, recognize myself in its pages, and close the back cover with a sense of sadness that it ended. Motherhood is a challenging task at worst, a joy every moment at best, and it is wonderful to know that women like Melanie Shankle are documenting the journey.

AD

“There is really no better indicator you’re a mother than acquiring the ability to catch throw-up in a plastic bag, disinfect your hands, and immediately ask your friend to pass the beef jerky as you put on another Taylor Swift song and act as if nothing has happened.”

This is the type of insight Melanie Shankle offers in this quirky memoir of motherhood.

Written in the familiar, stream-of-consciousness style of her blog, Big Mama, Sparkly Green Earrings is a heartwarming and hilarious look at motherhood from someone who is still trying to figure it all out. Filled with personal stories—from the decision to become a mother to the heartbreak of miscarriage and ultimately, to the joy of raising a baby and living to tell about it—Sparkly Green Earrings will make you feel like you’re sitting across the table from your best friend. A must-read for anyone who’s ever had a child or even thought about it.

Joy the Baker Cookbook: 100 Simple and Comforting Recipes

Joy Wilson

Price: $1.99

This book is designed very well and is easy to read.
It is organized into clear sections and features beautiful full page pictures.
There are MANY new recipes in this book that are not from her blog. Each recipe has a little note from Joy at the top, but it otherwise feels like a professional cookbook.
The “kitchen tips” type section at the beginning was wonderful! I’m excited to try some of them… AND all the other recipes in the book. I love that Joy features so many ‘basics with a twist’ while also branching out. I would say that this cookbook is perfect for the average cook who is willing to experiment a little and try something new.
ONLY con is that it is mostly a “sweets” book… I would have like to see a tad more variety… But hey it is a “celebration of butter and sugar”! It does have a great healthy cracker recipe, two smoothie recipes and a few others.
Just tried my first recipe from the book…coffee cake… and it is SMELLING UP MY DARN HOUSE with the most beautiful aroma! It is taking all the patience I have to wait for it to cook all the way 🙂

Anna

Joy the Baker Cookbook includes everything from “Man Bait” Apple Crisp to Single Lady Pancakes to Peanut Butter Birthday Cake. Joy’s philosophy is that everyone loves dessert; most people are just looking for an excuse to eat cake for breakfast.

“When I first heard the name ‘Joy the Baker,’ I immediately felt happy and warm. I couldn’t help it. And in the years I’ve gotten to know Joy the Person—and her beautiful, warm, comforting style of food—I can say without hesitation that she absolutely lives up to her name.” —Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman

“Joy bakes with her complete heart and soul, writes from the gut, and makes us feel that we too can make magic in the kitchen.” —Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan, cookbook author and creator of TheKitchn

“The best thing would be to have Joy the Baker actually bake all these things with you in your kitchen. The next best thing is reading her book, written with the exact same charming, hilarious in-person style that makes you feel like she’s right there with you, sharing the recipes that come from her heart and soul.” —Sarah Gim, TasteSpotting

“Joy is who made me want to bake. Stumbling on her blog was one of the luckiest and most inspirational things that has happened to me. She’s an insanely talented writer and an even better baker.” —Emma Stone, actress

THE ELEMENTS OF STYLE (UPDATED 2011 EDITION)

The All-Time Bestselling Book on Writing English Newly Edited (Special Kindle Edition) BY WILLIAM STRUNK, JUNIOR

The Elements of Style OVER 10 MILLION COPIES SOLD! (Kindle Edition)

Revised and Updated for 2011 by
Chris Hong, Formerly of Harvard University

OVERVIEW

This book is intended for use in English courses in which the practice of composition is combined with the study of literature. It aims to give in brief space the principal requirements of plain English style. It aims to lighten the task of instructor and student by concentrating attention (in Chapters II and III) on a few essentials, the rules of usage and principles of composition most commonly violated. The numbers of the sections may be used as references in correcting manuscript.

The book covers only a small portion of the field of English style, but the experience of its writer has been that once past the essentials, students profit most by individual instruction based on the problems of their own work, and that each instructor has his own body of theory, which he prefers to that offered by any textbook.

It is an old observation that the best writers sometimes disregard the rules of rhetoric. When they do so, however, the reader will usually find in the sentence some compensating merit, attained at the cost of the violation. Unless he is certain of doing as well, he will probably do best to follow the rules. After he has learned, by their guidance, to write plain English adequate for everyday uses, let him look, for the secrets of style, to the study of the masters of literature.
