Cupcake Book Club #11


For this month’s book club I have chosen Julia Child’s My Life in France (US and UK). The book details Julia’s life in Paris in 1948 and her journey in the kitchen. I felt this selection was appropriate for this month since I’ll soon be departing from Europe myself and going  back to the US. There will be 2 months to read since I’ll be in transit to the US in less than a month now. You can also read Julia & Julia for extra brownie points.

Refresher to those that want to join in this month. The concept is simple. Each month I’ll chose a novel with a cupcake (or baking/food theme) and post my review here. In addition, I’m going to bake something delicious inspired by the book.

I would also like to invite everyone to read, discuss and bake along with me. I also want to share! I’ll post a round up of any entries I receive. There are only a few loose guidelines stated below.

1. Make a good faith effort to start reading the chosen novel
2. Bake (or create) anything inspired by the chosen novel
3. Link to this post. Feel free to use the book club logo.
3. Email me your name, link to your blog post (if you have a blog) and photo (1MB or less in size) of your creation, where you’re from, and 1-2 sentences of what you thought of the book or what in the book inspired your creation by the stated deadline.
4. No spoilers please

Start reading now and join the discussion on the brand new Cupcake Book Club Forum! Send your inspired treat to me by October 4th and I’ll write a blog post featuring all submissions.
