Welcome back to From the Books! I'm so excited to start documenting all of my latest reads for you again. :)

I picked up Julie & Julia over the summer when I was browsing the cookbook section at Half Price Books. I don't think I would categorize this book as a cookbook, but I'm sure glad someone did! I'd seen the movie years ago and LOVED it, not only because Amy Adams is adorable, but also because she lives in Long Island City, which is basically Astoria, our former neighborhood in NYC. The book did not disappoint. It was so funny and well written, and I felt like I bonded with Julie and her husband, Eric. 

Favorite Quote:

"I just don't think I can face the subway ride back. Tell Julie I'm sorry."

I only selected this as my favorite quote, because I relate to it so well to it. I can't count how many times friends decided not to visit me in Queens, because it was just "too far away". Ha!

Why You Should Read It:

Watch the movie. Read the book. In that order.
