For the first book club of 2013 I’ve chosen The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. I haven’t cheated and read ahead yet! The book is about a young girl who can taste the emotions of the baked goods baked by her mother. Expect this book to be an emotional read. Find the books on Amazon UK and Amazon US. There will also be extra time for reading and baking this round.
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
