Book Review: “Dear Luke, We Need to Talk, Darth”

This book details letters that could have been written by pop culture icons. The content seems to cover pop culture from the 1960s to current. So, some parts were hard to relate to. While the book attempts to funny by using sarcasm, the profanity and sacrilege turned me off from this book. Granted, some parts of the book were funny, but just not enough for me to like it overall, especially with all the cursing and offensive content.

(I received this book free from the Blogging for Books program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.)

Book Review: “Snack Girl to the Rescue” by Lisa Cain

When I first selected this book, I thought there would be a lot more recipes for healthy snacks. However, this book contains recipes for not only snacks, but also for main entrees and sides. The beginning of it covers basic information on healthy eating. I like how the author went through numerous obstacles that one may use as an excuse not to eat healthfully and combatted each of those excuses with easily applicable strategies to succeed in eating well. She also points out the importance of exercise as well. The inclusion of nutritional data is helpful, and the recipes are listed is a very easy-to-read format. I also liked that the ingredients utilized can be easily found at regular supermarkets. I just wish that the book contained some pictures. However, I can’t wait to try some of these recipes with my family, especially some of the healthy desserts!
