Julie & Julia
Julie Powell
Sent to me for review from Anna at Hachette Book Group
Julie & Julia, the bestselling memoir that's "irresistible....A kind of Bridget Jones meets The French Chef" (Philadelphia Inquirer), is now a major motion picture. Julie Powell, nearing thirty and trapped in a dead-end secretarial job, resolves to reclaim her life by cooking in the span of a single year, every one of the 524 recipes in Julia Child's legendary Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Her unexpected reward: not just a newfound respect for calves' livers and aspic, but a new life-lived with gusto. The film is written and directed by Nora Ephron and stars Amy Adams as Julie and Meryl Streep as Julia.
I am sooo excited that I get the chance to read this one before the movie comes out! Now if I can just get my hands on a copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking... :)

What did you receive in the mail this week?

I like the sound of this one. I have so many cook books I haven't even looked at - let alone cooked all the recipes in!
