Top 3 Thursday: Favorite Books of 2019!

Happy "tomorrow is the start of the weekend" day everyone! So as I mentioned last week I'm dipping my toe back into the blogging game. The amount of stuff I've got to fit into the next 6 weeks is truly mind boggling but a home in the mountains is at the end of that tunnel so I'm very excited! First things first, I'm working on getting y'all a review for Run Away tomorrow and a recipe and a read post up next week as well so keep an eye out! Anyway, I was *originally* planning on posting the review today but I love the topic for today's Top 3 Thursday so here we are! Top 3 Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by A Cosy Reader where different topics are explored and today's is favorite books of 2019 so far!

Recipe + ARC Review: Recursion + Huevos Rancheros Recipe!

Welcome back to the table readers! My blog has really given me the ability to not only share my love of cooking and reading but also to broaden my scope in both areas. I've read all different types of books I probably wouldn't have otherwise and I've been able to try my hand at different dishes that are outside my comfort zone. Recipe and a Read has taken me all over the globe trying out different recipes from different cultures and countries. It's always a neat little surprise when I'm reading and BAM there's the recipe I'm going to make. Whether it's something I'm familiar with, or that I've never had, and even when I have to get a little creative to make it work these are always my favorite posts. So tickle me pink when I see huevos rancheros show up not once, but multiple times in Blake Crouch's new book Recursion! As a born and bred Texan, huevos rancheros are right up my alley and one of my all-time favorite dishes. So without further ado, off we go!

Top 3 Thursday: Books I’m Afraid to Start!

Why hello there fellow readers, cooks and bloggers alike! How is your week going? Mine, is a raging dumpster fire. KIDDING! But also, a little bit not kidding. This week has, in fact been super stressful for me. However, that's not to say I've not been more stressed before and that I don't have a lot of positive things in my life *I don't like to complain ok!*. Anywho, as I mentioned on Tuesday, my reading slump has been killing me but I'm slowly but surely pulling myself out of that and I should have some new reviews and recipes for ya'll next week! However, I didn't want to post just one measly time this week so I wanted to take a few moments to participate in today's Top 3 Thursday!

Top 3 Thursday is a meme hosted by A Cosy Reader where different topics are explored week to week and you choose your "top 3" within those confines. It's a super fun way to revisit old books and to learn about new ones from fellow readers! If you haven't checked out this blog, I can't suggest it enough. Today's topic is "books I'm afraid to start" which I kind of feel like is every book for me because I'm always hunting for my next obsession!
