I’ve asked some of my fav people and keen readers to share their favourite books of 2015. Like my fav people, these books are a jumble of ages, genres and lengths…I like my friends and my books DIVERSE :).
Today I’d like you to meet Ang. When I grow up I am going to be Ang. I adore this woman, and though she now lives in Tasmania, I text, Facebook and email her regularly…usually about food or books. She’s one of the most natural cooks, crafters and writers that I know and she has about 20 books inside of her – if only she’d hurry up and write them. When Anita, Michelle and I visited Ang in Tasmania a while back, many happy hours were spent reading her extensive cookbook collection and planning food glorious food – so her list of fav books has a few cook books thrown in. Her blog, Too Cold for Llamas is beautiful and very sporadic (so Ang!). I’m pretty sure you’ll all adore her list of her favourite books for 2015. Thanks Lovely Lady.
