The devil’s in the….cake :P

The choosing of this book was a rare (and very nice) occurence – eeny meeny miny moe actually led to the book I wanted to read the most 😀

That cake could kill me anytime! 😀

I simply love the Corinna Chapman Series for a few reasons:

  1. Corinna is a “plus-size” woman like myself and she doesn’t care what people think of her
  2. The descriptions of baked goods in Corinna’s bakery, Earthly Delights, is simply saliva inducing
  3. The mysteries are fun but smart
  4. There is a nice abundance of quirky characters, cats and G & Ts – all things I love
  5. The books are set in an apartment building whose architecture is reminiscent of Ancient Rome and all the apartments are named after Gods, Goddesses and the like (plus the matchings of characters to apartments fit in a really neat way)
  6. There are recipes in the back of each book 🙂

Thanks again to Sarah for introducing me to a great series xo I’m loving this one already 😛

Codes and Cake

Digital Fortress By Dan Brown

When I finished Artemis Fowl and the Opal Deception (which I borrowed from my little bro) I looked at the pile of books to choose from and saw that the “from Scott” pile is now quite low, only three books high! I guess my bro has a lot less books than me (tho he’s also a voracious reader) and I’m running out of books of his I want to read 😦 So understandably the eeny meeny miny moe was quite quick and I ended up choosing Digital Fortress, the only Dan Brown book I haven’t read (which is ironic because it’s his first :P)

Regardless of the controversy and criticism surrounding Dan Brown I have enjoyed all of his books and take them for what they are – exciting, creative stories based on secret societies or conspiracies but not fact. From what I’ve read so far, Digital Fortress is going to be a riveting tale of unbreakable codes and I’m going to enjoy it 🙂

On the subject of books I’m going to enjoy, I returned Heavenly Pleasures to the library today and borrowed the next
