Recently finished: The fantastic memoirs of Steve Martin and Martin Short. Both are amazing and fabulous and will make you love these funny men more. (Note to self: read more Steve Martin!) The Invoice, which I adored. I loved this book so much! It is charming and uplifting and--such a bonus in this crazy busy life!--short. I have also just finished Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton and The Toorak Jackpot by Rosemary Macindoe, more to come on both of those this week. 

Currently reading: Susan Bishop Crispell's The Secret Ingredient of Wishes. Still making my way through some new cookbooks, including Alton Brown's EveryDayCook. If you haven't yet seen this, go to your bookstore immediately to take a look at it. It is gorgeous!! I will be writing more about it when I get a chance to test some of those amazing looking recipes. This last week was a bit of rough one as far as reading was concerned. so I made no progress on any others I'm reading. Do you ever just feel yourself get a bit stuck? That was my week. Hopefully this one will be more productive. 

Up next: Still haven't gotten to Amy Schumer's memoir or Lianne Moriarty's Truly Madly Guilty. I still haven't prepared for October movies. But I also got a copy of Eileen by Ottessa Moshfegh, which I have not only heard all sorts of people raving about but also is shortlisted for this year's Booker prize (many congrats to her!). I am excited to have come across that gem! And speaking of excited, Tuesday is the release of Alex Prud'homme's The French Chef in America: Julia's Second Act, a sequel of sorts to My Life in Paris. This is the story of how Julia Child came back to the states to win us all over with her cookbooks, her charm, her wit, and her amazing, iconic cooking show. I will be driving to my local bookstore directly from work on Tuesday to get that one in my hot little hands!  I can't wait! Is it Tuesday yet? How about now?
