The Kitchen Front by Jennifer Ryan Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book I read this book as I am apart of the podcast book club  The ReadHeads . The Kitchen Front by Jennifer Ryan was the book of the month for November 2021. I knew very little about the book going into it other than it was set during the war. I am usually not a fan of books from this genre, but was open to the idea of liking it as it was centered around cooking and a contest compared to battles and violence.

Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins-Reid Book Review

So I chose to read Daisy Jones & the Six .  Content of the book At a young age Daisy is a want-to-be singer song-writer who has become swept up in the sex, drugs, and club life of LA in the late sixties.
