I’m still reading pretty some light fiction, but I’m hoping to get stuck into something more thought-provoking in the next few weeks. I love comfort reading, but I also like to be challenged. It’s a bit like eating mashed potato; it’s nice now and then, but eventually you need something more substantial to chew on. But for now, my brain still needs me to read books that are undemanding, so I’m happy to go with that.
I’m always a sucker for an attractive book cover, so I reserved The Art of Baking Blind
at my local library precisely because the Victoria Sponge on the cover looked so inviting. I was disappointed to find that it had an entirely different (and far less attractive) cover when I picked it up, but I enjoyed it, even though it was fairly predictable. The characters are nicely drawn, and it was a bit like watching The Great British Bake-Off. Everyone has a backstory, and you know who you want to be the winner.
Recommended if you’re in the mood for something not too challenging, but nice! Comfort reading at its best.
