Today I am sharing Gordon Ramsay’s latest creation, Quick and Delicious: 100 Recipes to cook in 30 minutes or Less. This book served my family quite a few easy and delectable meals. Even better, recipes in this book take under 30 minutes to prepare. Something I can whip together in 30 minutes without compromising ingredients or taste is what I am always in the market for. This man is officially speaking my love language.
I just finished reading the most unique love story that weaved together science, human connection and the power of time. Madeleine Henry’s latest book, The Love Proof struck a tender chord in my heart that I just can’t shake. This five star read is the most intellectual romance I have ever come across and I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
I am so excited to share that my friend Katie and I are hosting a buddy read for Beyond The Point by Claire Gibson this month. It is low key and read at your own pace with a final discussion on Sunday, February 28, 2021 at 8pm EST/7pm CST on an instagram private chat. If you have an instagram account and would like to join in with an awesome group of fellow readers from all over the country, please connect with me via email or message me on instagram.
Gabrielle Korn, a digital media expert, former editor at Refinery29 and former editor-in-chief of Nylon shares in her new memoir, personal essays relating to this very issue. Her story is an eye-opening, contemporary account of how damaging the fashion and beauty industries have been (and still can be) to women. Her writing is fresh and alive and pretty much blew me away. I hope you will read her book and find wisdom and courage in her words.
Breathe In, Cash Out by Madeleine Henry gave me a refreshing glimpse into the world of ruthless banking on Wall Street (boy I miss NYC), while also getting my zen on with some much needed yoga. Henry delivered a soul searching story that not only enlightened me with wisdom and laughter, but seriously charmed the pants off of me.
Today my friends, I have a book that will make it impossible to fall asleep after just a few pages. This book has built in momentum, pages that practically turn themselves and a riveting storyline with an ending to please. Britney King’s latest psychological thriller, Savage Row, is out now! It’s time for your bedtime story!
I am excited to tell you that I just read my very first Holly Bourne novel and I can’t stop thinking about it. Bourne’s latest novel, Pretending, blew me away. She tapped into all of my emotions in one swoop. What I thought was going to be a light and fluffy experience, turned out to be an emotionally raw and engaging read with quite a few laughs on the side. Let’s take a deeper look into this novel, shall we!
Greetings from Maine…a balmy 25 degrees when I woke up this morning. Needless to say, Cecilia and I are freezing. Winter is coming and so are some fun things over here on Dear Mr. Hemingway. First, this website is in the process of getting a makeover…so fun!

I retired early to bed last night. I am not going to lie, the weight of life and the world around me felt extra heavy for some reason (2020 can do that to you). I not only found solace in my bed with my flannel sheets wrapped around me, but in a very special book that will forever be in arm’s reach.

Dear Mr. Hemingway,
I wish I could say that I spent more time in Mexico over the years. Warm sandy beaches, unique landscapes, and scrumptious cuisine continue to call my name during this time of literally no frivolous travel (at least for me). My only recollection of this country is of me sipping lethal cocktails from a three-foot-long plastic cup in Cancun and wandering the bustling streets of Tijuana in search of some bottled water and a pharmacy.
Dear Lovely Readers,

Dear Mr Hemingway,
I am skipping the small talk today and launching right into my most recent read. Where has author Camilla Lackberg been all my life? This Swedish gem’s latest crime novel, The Golden Cage, was the reading buzz I so fancied! I cannot believe I am just now discovering her. I guess I was hiding under a ginormous rock. A lavish tale of a scorned wife and her tangled plot to seek revenge on the man she once loved.
