Library Love...Mexican Food Made Simple, Make, Mend, Bake, Save and Shine!, Cute and Easy Crochet, When God was a Rabbit...

There have been lots of lovely new books in my library this month!

Mexican Food Made Simple - Thomasina Miers
I've been watching the TV series of this on channel 5 and mainly got the book out to read the churros con chocolate recipe in more detail, but it's actually a really nice book about Mexico and all the yummy food you can eat there.  Not many of the recipes are vegan, but I enjoyed reading it anyway.

Make, Mend, Bake, Save and Shine - Barbara Warmsley
This book has lots of tips and tricks to live a greener life and save money, most of the tips are common sense or things I've heard elsewhere, but it's a nice, positive read.

Cute and Easy Crochet - Nikki Trench
I loved Super Cute Crochet by the same author, and this book is great too, lots of easy crochet projects and pretty pictures to inspire!  There's a flowery granny square blanket I'd particularly like to try making.

When God Was a Rabbit - Sarah Winman
I haven't finished reading this yet, but I can already tell I'm going to love it, it's about a brother and sister as they grow up.  They have a rabbit called God.  I will be back to write a proper review when I've finished reading.


  1. You should try making crochet tutorials now that you're a pro :)

  2. Great selections! I'm going to add a couple to my 'to read list'!

  3. Funny you should say that Joddle, I've just written my first, e x t r e m e l y simple crochet pattern, to share on here soon, actually!

    Great Shannon Marie, hope you enjoy! :)

  4. Thank you so much for your lovely comment Sooz. I label myself vegan for other peoples' benefit too Have a beautiful sparkly day.

  5. They look like good books...

    We spent over 2 hours in our local book shop last week - it was wonderful. We don't buy - just look & make notes!

    Kay :)

  6. Jeni, you're more than welcome :) Some people take themselves waaaaaaay too seriously!

    I do the same thing Kay, I always come away with a bit list of things I want to read then request them all from the library!

  7. Absolutely LOVE When God Was a Rabbit! Have you finished it yet? Would love to know what you thought.

  8. I did finish it ages ago, Adele, I Loooved it, I laughed, I cried, it was a great book, I'll definately be re-reading it some time!
