What did I miss? is a feature here at The Grammarian’s Reviews showcasing weekly updates and highlights from both here and other bloggers. So let’s get on with the recap!

How do you read…classics? — A new mini feature in which I ask you how you read various types and genres of literature. This week it was all about tackling the classics.

[review] Beauty Queens  by Libba Bray — Satire meets pageant girls meets tropical island.

[review] City of Bones  by Cassandra Clare — FULL of surprises!

Whip it Up Mondays — Doughnuts made easy!

 I really shouldn’t be typing this right now, having just spent seven hours in a car — and about two of those hours in horrendous traffic — but oh well! It was worth it. I finally managed to squeeze in a mini vacation.

Unfortunately there was no time for reading, and I didn’t get in much before leaving. So my slacking streak is at an all-time high. I’m promising myself I’ll read tomorrow while I’m taking it easy and NOT spending any time in the car. Unsure whether I’ll continue with the Mortal Instruments series right now, or start my first Book Sessions book, Second Chance Summer.

Also, if you didn’t know already: it’s August. This is very, very disappointing for me, because that means school is starting again soon. How is it that I always feel like I never really get a summer vacation?

Bout of Books 5.0 — The official BoB sign-up and schedule were posted! I’m super excited to be hosting one of the challenges!

WP Plugins — New to WP? Not utilizing your plugins effectively? Amanda’s got a nifty list of her favorites for you.

When I’m not reading, blogging or doing homework, I’m cooking. Cooking is a lot like reading and writing: it brings ingredients together to create a single dish that tells a story of flavors, family, friends and experiences. And just like with books, you don’t have to be the creator. Sometimes we’re all just looking for a little eye candy. So here’s a little food for thought!

I don’t know if you all know this, but I’m a total foodie. A foodie is “someone who has an ardent or refined interest in food.” Cooking is all about discovery for me – seeing which ingredients work well together, what flavors can be created, and what new foods can be tried. So now I’m bringing this discovery to TGR!

Every Monday I’ll be sharing a new food find, recipe, and of course, some eye candy.

This week: doughnuts

(Yes, I spell it “doughnuts.” It really, really bugs me when I see it spelled as “donuts.”)

So, I’ve been on a bit of a doughnut kick. And in this kick I’ve learned a new trick. (Oh man, I rhymed.) Check this out:

Talk about easy!

Thank you, Pinterest!
