I really enjoyed reading this book. If you’re interested in food history, this is an excellent book to check out. The Further Reading list in the back also has some great suggestions.

Title: Victoria & Abdul: the True Story of the Queen’s Closest Confidant

Author: Shrabani Basu

Amazon link

Brief Review: “The True Story of the Queen’s Closest Confidant.” This was a very nice book. I”m not usually into biographies and memoirs, but this one was good. I really enjoyed it. One thing I will say is that no single person is responsible for the way Abdul was treated. Multiple people, including Abdul and the Queen, are to blame.

Book Review video time!!!

Title: I Hate Everyone But You

Authors: Gaby Dunn & Allison Raskin

I enjoyed this book. It was a refreshing quick read after my last book. I feel the way it was formatted (emails and text message conversations) really helped with the speed reading.
