This is the book I turn to when I need cheering up. Set in a crumbling English castle populated by a quirky and delightful cast of characters, the diary entries of the witty, charismatic, and "consciously naive" Cassandra Mortmain make up a coming of age story so utterly charming that I couldn't stop smiling while reading.

Full of very accessible but always interesting and flavorful vegetarian recipes. Lately I've been cooking from this book or the author's blog, Cookie and Kate, multiple times per week. My favorites are the sweet potato black bean enchiladas and chickpea tikka masala, both of which use a lot of pantry staples!

On her 19th birthday, Oona begins experiencing her life out of chronological order, leaping to a random year each New Year’s Eve. Though Oona’s situation is extreme, anyone can relate to her struggle to live in the moment and accept whatever comes next. I looked forward to seeing what each new leap would bring.

Inspired by the true story of the CIA’s role in the publication of Doctor Zhivago, Prescott imagines the lives of Boris Pasternak’s real life lover/muse Olga as well as the fictional Irina and Sally, spies involved in the mission to smuggle the novel into the Soviet Union. Espionage, forbidden love, and the zippy commentary of the Mad Men-era typing pool combine for an absorbing story.
