The Swerve- I was really looking forward to this one. But just because a book wins awards doesn’t mean I’m going to enjoy it. There’s a ton of history in this book, some I really enjoyed. Ultimately I felt like I was reading a school textbook. When I couldn’t muster any enthusiasm, I had to put it aside.
Eating India-I had high hopes for this one too. Part memoir, part travelogue, part history of Indian food. But like The Swerve after time, I started dreading reading it. I think it was the tone and voice of her writing that I ultimately disliked.
Did you read any of these? What did you think?
