Blogger Book Fair: My Picks

I'm wrapping up the Blogger Book Fair this week with my picks. I've had fun hearing everyone's suggestions and look forward to bringing the series back in the future!

Anita Shreve A Change in Altitude
Anita Shreve is by far my favorite author. It all started with The Pilot's Wife, and I've been hooked ever since. This lady knows how to pack a real emotional punch in her novels that often leave me reeling for days after I have finished the book. This is her latest book that just came out this month, and is about an American couple who move to Nairobi in the 1970's. They attempt to climb Mt. Kenya and something tragic happens that changes their lives forever. Sounds intriguing!

The River Cottage Family Cookbook by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Fizz Carr
I'm not sure where I ran across a recommendation of this book, but it sounds right up my alley: gets the whole family involved in cooking simple, homey meals and explains the why's and how to's of each recipe thoroughly.

Glamorous Rooms by Jan Showers
The perfect coffee table book. Who doesn't like a little glam every now and then?

Lulu by Lulu De Kwiatkowski
I've wanted this book for soooo long, but have never splurged. I just love Lulu's textiles, and this book is full of her collages inspired by her life and many travels. Colorful eye candy at it's best.

Cottages on the Coast: Fair Harbors and Secret Shores by Linda Leigh Paul
The title pretty much says it all. For when I want to dream the day away.

Handmade Home by Amanda Blake Soule
I loved Amanda's first book, so this follow-up is sure to please. Filled with crafts and sewing projects for around your home, many of which are made using re-purposed materials. Sounds like the perfect book to pull out when facing cabin fever this winter!
