I drink it when I’m sick or sad or cold... I adore almost all tea (particularly earl grey de la creme!). I also love learning about tea! This book teaches about the history, methods of preparation, and I loved reading it. #MSWL fiction or nonfiction about tea!
Sarah E. Patterson @spattersearchI do not wish to read another story anout "geniuses" & how they spent their time w/out the corresponding info about who was doing their cooking & cleaning. Someone compile that into a book (if they haven't already) & call it "Who was cooking for Darwin?"

Ummm so I just watched 10 mins on artisanal butter making?? Also #MSWL a book on the history of butter!
Reading The Wood is like... well it’s like living in a wood for a year. Nature writing like this reminds me to slow down and really look at the world around me, and I’d love to see more of it in my inbox! #MSWL
My first taste heady taste of the richness that is Beef Bourguignon, my grandmother’s creamy mashed potatoes cooked in a cauldron-like pot... my best memories come from food I ate with family and friends... which is why I’m absolutely desperate for food writing like this! #MSWL
Like many of you, I grew up with Laura and Mary and Little House on the Prairie, and I was thrilled to find this retelling of the story from “Ma’s” perspective. It is a tender and lovely read and makes you think about all the women who’ve silently done the work. #MSWL
A deeply moving and tragic novel about superstition and magic. The writing is clear and cutting and utterly brilliant and when I finished this I stared at the ceiling and cried. PLEASE send me historical fiction like this. #MSWL
Yes, I have two copies of the same book. I NEEDED both of them. Because I adore everything about this book. It’s hilarious and sad and lovely and moving and really quite important to me... in a startling way since its a short story about a fox. Send me writing like this! #MSWL
This is EXACTLY the kind of historical fiction I love (and want!). A brilliant multi POV novel about spies and secrets and the importance of literature (Dr. Zhivago) during the Cold War. The multi POVs can be confusing but I highly recommend reading! #MSWL
