What’s the most enjoyable, most fun, most just-darn-entertaining book you’ve read recently?


I finished reading a YA novel, The Sweet Life of Stella Madison by Lara M. Zeises a few days ago and it is so fun and entertaining. I have yet to draft a review for this book but let me share the synopsis with you (from the author's site):

It's not easy being the daughter of a famous chef and a restaurant owner when your idea of a great meal is the kind that's served via a drive-through window.

Seventeen-year-old Stella Madison's food-loving parents have been separated for years, but they're still as sweet to each other as can be, which is just the way Stella likes it. When their connections help her land a summer job at the local newspaper, the salary is hard to resist. There's only one catch: she's expected to write about food.

Now Stella will need all the advice she can get to complete her assignments. Luckily, she has Jeremy, the hot new intern at her mom's restaurant, who's more than happy to help. Soon, Stella can't stop thinking about Jeremy--but where does that leave Stella's boyfriend, Max, who recently dropped the L-word? If that's not confusing enough, her dad's interest in the pretentious programming director of the Food Network seems to go beyond the culinary, and it looks like her mother might be cooking up a romance of her own….

The Sweet Life of Stella Madison is a warmhearted, delectable novel about what it means to love and be loved, especially when there are a few too many cooks in the kitchen.

I simply couldn't turn down a book on food and love. Don't you think they make a great combination?

So what’s the most enjoyable, most fun, most just-darn-entertaining book you have read recently?

    Well Footesteps in the Dark by Georgette Heyer! There were so many places where I actually laughed out loud! Though the plot was predictable, I loved the writing a lot!!!!!

    Fun, entertaining book... I'm in the middle of Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict and I've had a few chuckles :)

    Books with food as one of the main themes are some of my favorites! I haven't read a truly entertaining book in awhile though :(
