Links for a foggy Wednesday morning

It has been ages since I’ve done one of these!

Edan Lepucki writes at The Millions about likeability in fiction. She mentions her novel, California, which I really ought to try to read soon! And this year is ending! Gah… Have you read it yet? Or are you intending to?

If you’ve not checked out the series that Morning News is doing on writers in restaurants, you really ought to! Here’s their brief: “In our series, we send novelists out into the field to eat in restaurants and report back, as long as they file something that fits two criteria: It is a restaurant review; it is not a restaurant review. From there, they’re free to go wherever inspiration takes them.”. And here is Charles Yu on Buffalo Wild Wings

So many great topics on Nonfiction November’s second week: Be/Become/Ask the expert. SOOOO many books to add to my TBR list!

The Mouse Mansion – what a cute book!

A fun post on Scratch and Sniff Books for Grownups on BookRiot!

Non-bookish things:

This Gruyere and Emmentaler Mac and Cheese with Ham and Cubed Sourdough at Vanilla Garlic is going on my mental list of recipes to try!

I usually have udon in my fridge, and often stir it into a quickly made chicken and vegetable soup or tom yum soup (made from one of those pastes). But this recipe for a meat sauce at Teczcape sounds quick and easy too!

Usually I’m not a cheesecake person but this Coconut and Mango Yogurt Cheesecake at Dessert First sounds divine!
