I’m really excited to have the opportunity to share a guest post today on the wonderful Megan’s blog The Hungry Bookworm. Since Megan primarily features fiction, and I tend to review a lot of nonfiction, I thought I would give some recommendations of nonfiction titles for readers who might not typically read nonfiction.
I decided to focus on memoirs because I find that they make great ‘gateway drugs’ for nonfiction newcomers. With their more personal and narrative style, they provide a much easier bridge into nonfiction for lovers of fictional stories. In fact, some of the stories within the memoirs I picked for this post are so incredible, they read like novels. Head over to The Hungry Bookworm to read my post!
Today I have something different and special for you guys. The lovely Megan over at The Hungry Bookworm had the awesome idea of trading guest posts. I love her combinations of book reviews and recipes so I was very excited. She’s leading the charge this week with this delicious combination of a review of White Houses by Amy Bloom and a recipe for Sherry-Spiked Mushroom Soup inspired from the novel. I’ll be guest posting on Megan’s blog next week but for now I’ll let Megan take it away.Hi!

As in a typical Hungry Bookworm post, I’ll be pairing a book review with a recipe inspired by what I read.
