Mixing It Up – Book Review

This is the second book I have read by Author Tracie Bannister, the first one I read was Twin Piques, I really enjoyed it.

So, after hearing that Tracie had a new book out that was a foodie and comedy book, I was very keen to read it. Here are my thoughts on it.

Description:

Born with a silver spoon in her mouth, Manhattan upper-cruster Cecily Sinclair now uses that pricey utensil to dish up fancy French fare on her cooking show, Serving Romance. When there’s an executive shake-up at the network, she’s not worried. Not much anyway. Her show’s a hit after all. Why would the new CEO want to mess with success?

Throwback Thursday: Lady Midnight – Book Review

 

Throwback Thursday is a series where we take a look back at some of ARR’s most popular posts. Enjoy!

Wow. Lady Midnight broke my heart over and over and over and I
couldn’t even have time to breathe.

If you’re a fan of the Shadowhunter Chronicles, you’ll most definitely
not be disappointed! Like I said, Lady Midnight has taken a new plot
that I really didn’t expect. In my opinion, I’m currently liking it
better than The Infernal Devices or The Mortal Instruments, which is saying something, because a) TID is basically my life (because Will
and Jem, duh) and b) Because The Dark Artifices has only one book
released as of yet, and I’m already loving it more than all the other
previous series.
