May Book Haul

I’ve decided to start a monthly “series” where I post all the books Mandy and I have hauled including NetGalley ARCs, Edelweiss ARCs (when I actually get approved LOL), physical ARCs (99.9% Mandy here), library books, and physical books we buy with our coins giftcards*. This was certainly a slow month for the BPR princesses. Should we say that we…contained ourselves somehow??

The one place she can let her responsibilities go is in the kitchen, where she adds a little something magical to everything she cooks, turning her food into straight-up goodness. Still, she knows she doesn’t have enough time for her school’s new culinary arts class, doesn’t have the money for the class’s trip to Spain — and shouldn’t still be dreaming of someday working in a real kitchen. But even with all the rules she has for her life — and all the rules everyone expects her to play by — once Emoni starts cooking, her only real choice is to let her talent break free.
