Momma Says: To Read or Not to Read: The Acorn Stories

Becky Baldridge reviewed The Acorn Stories at her book blog Momma Says: To Read or Not to Read. She describes her blog this way: "Read and review blog where I tell them like I read them, honestly and without pulling any punches. Request a Review today!" An excerpt from her review follows.

"The stories cover a bit of everything that small town life entails, from the don't know what you've got til it's gone romance to the dedicated teacher to nosy neighbors, etc. The point is these people could be anywhere in any small town, including your own."

Martha A. Cheves Reviews The Acorn Stories: "I loved this book and the memories it brought back."

Blogger and cookbook author Martha A. Cheves reviews The Acorn Stories on her bookblog A Book and A Dish, writing that "I loved this book and the memories it brought back."

She also invited me to share a recipe from one of the characters in The Acorn Stories. In fact, all of her book reviews at that blog include a recipe from the authors. That combination creates a unique merging of creativity: the creation of food and the creation of stories.

Readers might recognize the name Martha A. Cheves from the blog and book Stir, Laugh, Repeat, as well as her Think With Your Tastebuds cookbooks.

Lovers of good books and good food should visit A Book and A Dish and follow Martha A. Cheves at Goodreads.
