Beth told me she really liked this book. :)
The cover image kind of says it all, this isn't a comfortable book to read, just like you'd be uncomfortable if you saw a vase of flowers shatter in front of you. The writing is decent, and I made it all the way to the end, unlike some similar books about hostile family situations (I'm looking at you, The Dinner).
This is a heavy movie about serious family issues with a lot of swearing! But I seriously enjoyed every character, and I watched the credits wanting to know more about what happens to this family. Meryl Streep is great, as usual, and this was the best I've seen Julia Roberts since Pretty Woman.
This cookbook is amazing, especially if you watch America's Test Kitchen on tv. I do, and I've tried to look up recipes online, and even though you can usually find them elsewhere, it costs money to see the recipes on the ATK website. This is ALL THE RECIPES! from the tv show, and I'll be looking to find it on sale (or at the Friends bookshop) for my personal reference library.
I love the Hunger Games movies way more than I thought I was going to. The first one made me want to read, and then listen to the books. I enjoy the Hunger games in all formats, and I've gotten my (adult) friends hooked too.
