Joanna’s cookbook is full of delicious recipes and beautiful pictures. Every time I flip through it I see something else I want to try. Overnight French Toast? Yes, please. Creamed Corn Spoonbread?

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
The only book written by Emily Brontë tells the tale of the tumultuous relationship between Catherine and Heathcliff. I love the style of storytelling, the characters, and the moodiness.
