You know how after you finish a heavy book, and you want something lighthearted and fun to read?
That's why I picked this one up. I had just finished Shantaram, and needed something a bit on the lighter side.
Plus, it was free for my Kindle, and it was about cooking. Score!
The book itself is good enough. It was pretty predictable. I knew fairly early on how the whole book was going to play out.
I still enjoyed the book. In fact, a little predictability was nice here.
The story is about Rachel, who after her divorse starts a cooking blog. But, it's more of an how-to-fry-an-egg blog. What she finds out is that she really starts telling her story through a few notes on how to make toast.
She also starts dating again.
After Rachel wins a Bloscar (blogging award) for the best Diarist, her life takes a drastic change. She's offered a book deal, and she learns what she really needed to learn: how to speak up for herself.
