Book Review: The Chocolate Diaries

The Chocolate Diaries by Karen Linamen starts off with an engaging introduction to the book which contains stories about people who have turned their “truffles of life” into rich, satisfying gourmet meals.

Sprinkled throughout the book are yummy recipes that will thrill chocolate lovers!  This was probably the best part of this book for me.

Overall the book was ok.  The author, Karen Linaman, relates a number of anecdotes from her own life as well as her friends and associates.  The stories are interesting and help to support her ideas.

  1. Hi Ava!
    Thank you so much for reading and reviewing The Chocolate Diaries. I'm so glad I found your blog (and I love that Gracie has her own iPhone--minus the phone! As for me, I still have to get my 16 year old to turn on the DVD player for me... oh well!)

    And thank you for pointing out the missing detail in the dog/birth control story... my apologies to you (and to my other readers!) for not including the time-frame of that story! That story did not happen recently at all, but took place when I was married. Please forgive me for any confusion! (I'll see if my publisher can fix that on our next printing!)

    I will have to stay in touch with your blog so I can continue to see what fun things you and your beautiful family are up to!

    Hugs and blessings to you, dear Ava!

    Karen :)
