A Spoonful of Sugar
by Brenda Ashford
By far my favourite book this month, it is written by Britain’s longest serving nanny (60 years!). If you like England, nanny stories, history, brilliant and loving parenting (and life) advice served with a chocolate biscuit and tea- you’ll like this book.
Feast by Nigella Lawson
Technically a cookbook but with enough personal writing to make it memoir-ish, this book served to remind why I love food and people and the combination of the two. She also inspires me to eat properly - real food and quality food. #donotreadwhenhungry
Fat, Sugar, Salt by Michael Moss
If you eat, drink, care about the people you share life with and the next generation- read this book. Then follow it up with Michael Pollon’s Food Rules as a way to move forward. #justeatrealfood
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
A favourite when I was ten, still a favourite now at twenty-seven.
The Uncommon Appeal of Clouds by Alexander McCall Smith
I’ve tried other titles by Smith and discarded them (is it just me?) but I really enjoyed this one. Set in Scotland, with the story woven around ‘older’ people without a lot of angst and emotional drama but enough intrigue to keep me reading.

linking up, as always, with Twitterature at Modern Mrs. Darcy
p.s. I’m not sure why all the book graphics appear so small, I’ll try to figure that out for next time!
