This may be my favorite Dresden Files novel. There's a great mix of mystery, action, and some deeper emotional themes with recurring characters; we get a more in-depth look at Harry's psyche. This one also ends with more of a sense of foreboding than all the previous novels.

This cookbook is amazing. I constantly pull it off my kitchen shelf for meal inspiration and to go back to my new favorite recipes (must-tries are the Southwestern Corn Pudding, Tamarind Lentils, Snobby Joes, Black eyed Pea Collard Wraps, smoky grilled tempeh, and so many others!). It is an incredible resource for cooking tips, like how to cook/prepare a specific ingredient in a wide variety of ways. I love that it has so many categories: "little meals" or apps, entrees, vegetable dishes, main proteins, breakfast, dessert.... plus the authors are hilarious and their writing is very entertaining. #1 must-have cookbook for vegans/vegetarians/anyone who wants to eat delicious food.

I loved this book so much when I checked it that my boyfriend bought it for me as a gift. The kind of cookbook that is more than a cookbook; you can read it in bed at night just for the endearing, heartwarming stories that Alana writes about her family and their experiences. Even as a vegan there are recipes in here that I've earmarked (the chai, salad dressings, pizza sauce, tea blends, snack bars, instant oatmeal....)

Wonderful time-travel story; absolutely hilarious. I loved all of the Victorian era details and the variety of lovable characters.
Unique film

"An unparalleled sensory experience" is right. I wish I could've seen this on the big screen. The imagery is at times disturbing, thought-provoking, beautiful, and downright shocking. There are a few shots that seem to have a clear political message, which I thought was interesting for this un-narrated documentary. The soundtrack is great, too.
