Now back to the review.
This month for ARC I will be reviewing "Life, Love and Lox: Real World Advice for the Modern Jewish Girl" by Carin Davis.
I picked the book up a couple years ago during the close out sale at Border's book store :inserts sad music here: When I went to Border's they didn't have much left as it was the tail end, but did manage to find a couple of books. I was about to check out pay but I gave one last sweep of the books and found this one. It looked like a fun read.
The book is the author's take of what it is be be a modern day Jewish girl. In the beginning of each chapter she tells a story of her life in the dating world that is centered what the chapter is about. There are 13 chapters in the book. The first 7 chapters is about Jewish life. Keeping Kosher, Life-cycle events(birth, bar/bat mitzah, wedding and death), synagogue, community involvement, head coverings, dating and Shabbat. The rest of the chapters each one talks about the big holidays, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Hanukkah, Purim, Passover, and other holidays.
The book was a fun read. It had lot of humor in it, which I liked. With me being Jewish, A lot of things I did know already. Some things , though very few I didn't know. It was a good refresher.
Next month's book will be Blood Oath by Christopher Farnsworth
