Slightly Peckish Tuesday
26 July, 2011
This week I’m talking about one of my favourite home-made desserts. That’s tiramisu, baby. So if you want to know the secret of becoming popular, check me out at Umamimart: Slightly Peckish!
In bookish news the Man Booker Prize longlist was announced today so go and take a peek. I haven’t read any of them so am looking forward to trying a few, especially Patrick deWitt’s The Sisters Brothers, Esi Edugyan’s Half Blood Blues and Jane Rogers’ The Testament of Jessie Lamb. Or maybe I’ll finally try something by Sebastian Barry or Alan Hollinghurst. I’ll be happy if I can read at least one title before the prize is announced. It’s a pretty interesting selection this year, not the usual conservative choices.
And I finally went to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Yes, I cried. Yes, it was brilliant. But as a reader, I felt the books conveyed the sadness and brilliance of the books more completely. Of course, I’ll be watching them again. Probably a gazillion more times. Makes me want to go back and read the books again too.
