BBAW/BTT Combo

BBAW: The task today is to highlight the book discovered only because you read about it on a book blog and then you realized you couldn’t live without it!

As it turns out, the book I was going to feature also answers today's Booking Through Thursday question!




Today's question:
What’s the most enjoyable, most fun, most just-darn-entertaining book you’ve read recently?
(Mind you, this doesn’t necessarily mean funny, since we covered that already. Just … GOOD.)


My answer:

I didn't have to think long for this one! French Milk by Lucy Knisley is an incredibly creative graphic travel journal/memoir. Even the cover is fun!

Karen from Bookbath brought this gem to my attention. She read it in preparation for her own trip to Paris (she checked in from Ireland yesterday). Although I won't be traveling there any time soon, I enjoyed visiting vicariously through Knisley's book.

My review was posted on Tuesday and you can find it here.

  2. I simply MUST add this book to my TBR pile - every time I see the cover I just melt.

    Great idea to combine the two memes.

    Your BTT (sorry that reminds me of Butt :) -- I just read a new favorite book, These is my Words by Nancy Turner. Adventure, true grit and great clean romance -- Rhett and Scarlet style.
