Follow Friday


Every Friday Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read hosts Feature and Follow Friday. One lucky blog is featured and interviewed while the rest of us post our own responses to the question of the week and blog hop to say hello to each other!

This week's question:

Christmas in July! Someone gives you a gift card for two books (whatever that costs). What two books will you buy?

HeatherJay's Answer:

Since this is hypothetical and in my hypothetical mind all of my friends are rich, I will assume this is a REALLY good gift card. Let me preface my first choice by letting y'all know that I'm a total foodie. Unfortunately, I'm a broke-ass foodie so I do not get to partake in my passion as often as I would like. My absolute favorite chef is Thomas Keller. Since I don't have money falling out of my ass I cannot afford to go to his restaurant, The French Laundry, in Napa Valley. I have wanted his cookbook forever and for some reason my friends don't feel like shelling out $500 to let me live my dream so I've always thought buying the $100 cookbook would be a close second.


Second would be to pre-order Gun Metal Magic by Ilona Andrews which comes out next month. It's the first spin-off to the Kate Daniels Series and I'm fricking dying to read it.

 

There are two releases that Im dying to read but since they come out this winter Ill just hold my GC til then...LOL!

    1. The recipes are epic! However, after buying the cookbook you wouldn't have an $$ left for food. ;)
      You must check out the Kate Daniels books. Kate and Curran are the best. Thx for stopping by......

  8. Wow. Did not think some cookbooks could be that expensive. That means you'd have to make every dish more than twice, or at least I'd want to, if I spent my own money. You'd be right to wait for a gift card!
