Welcome to our second installment of Reading with a Side of… This month I scoured both my Goodreads and the internet to find the perfect book to go with the perfect recipes. I, unlike Sarah, really enjoy cooking and baking but it’s a hobby that has definitely been backburnered in the past few years but I think this recipe has given me inspiration to pull out the measuring cups and experiment with something new. So without any further adieu here is Septembers Reading with a Side of….
Pairing Infinity (or any books in the Chronicles of Nick Series) by Sherrilyn Kenyon with Beignets.
Nick Gautier’s life isn’t perfect but it’s uncomplicated. The fourteen-year-old lives in the bad part of New Orleans with his mother who would do anything to give Nick a better life including being a stripper. Nick is the one of the least popular students at his fancy private school where everyone knows he’s a scholarship kid. When Nick tries to fit in with his old friends he almost ends up on the wrong side of the law but he definitely ends up on the wrong side of a gun. As Nick lays bleeding in the street he is saved by Kyrian, a mysterious warrior with supernatural powers who spends his nights fighting the forces of darkness. Kyrain hires Nick to be his assistant and Nick finds himself in a world he didn’t know existed filled with danger, zombies, and sarcasm.
I totally heart Nick Gautier and his creole accent. Kenyon has written the perfect fourteen year old boy filled with inappropriate comments, sarcastic remarks, and awkward moments. I give this book two unicorns and recommend you add it to you must reads list.
I found this recipe on The Food Network’s website. It was originally posted by Paula Deen and honestly who does southern food better?
