The time I joined the worst book club ever with ten of my kinda cool cousins….
Outside of never meeting up to discuss the book, the book they picked (they as in my 2o something guy cousin picked) was actually laugh out loud, chick flick, funny. I’m still working through GOT, somewhere in the middle of book three, so chugging along rather. However, I put it down to be part of the fam-bam trend and picked up a copy of Pasta Wars. To put things into perspective that’s a pretty big deal. FOMO is real because I never read two books at once since I get confused with characters and plots and weird OCD I suppose. Much less, I never buy the paper back version because Kindle for life. But I broke both of those rules for this book mostly because Amazon doesn’t carry the book which is just weird. The conclusion: I don’t regret it even for a second (for this one time exception… Let’s not get carried away here).
There has never been a book that has made me want to eat Pasta every time I read a sentence even for breakfast or made want to move to a small village in Italy – not even Dan Brown. There has never been a book that has inspired me to write funny, plot turning things that sucks the reader in and pulls at all of their emotional heart strings – ok maybe J K Rowling. But point. I want to write something as awesome as that.
Pasta Wars was an easy, quick read that I recommend to anyone looking for a weekend read. It was so well written leaving me feeling that I experienced every word in the book. Have I been the CEO of fortune 500 pasta company? Well no. But we have all been heart broken, insecure about our weight or failing in our careers and then done something outrageous when you can’t believe life is too good to be true. For me, that’s usually a short AF haircut that was not meant for these ratchet curls but for Miss Katie that involved a trip to Italy with a hot business partner and things just escalate from there. There was also a PR tie in there and a good lesson on what you should never do for my fellow PR girls without giving away too many spoiler alerts. For the BATP girl, that’s all of the ingredients for an award-winning 5 star rating:
