I hope your thirsty! Because I’ve got a sneak peek of all my wine recommendations for the books I’ve read, am reading, or will be reading this week!
My Recommendations for What I’ve Read so Far This Week:
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Roseblood by A.G. Howard
Soulmated by Shaila Patel
Since you’ll all have a new Irish book bae after reading Shaila Patel’s gorgeous debut novel, I recommend pairing it with this Lusca Irish Cabernet Sauvignon. Full review to be posted on 02/02 as part of this beauty’s blog tour!
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Even though I’ve never actually tried this wine, I HAD to pair this book with this El Paso Tempranillo, because El Paso is so critical to this book. Sal’s Mexican-American family is from El Paso, and his family, his roots, they are everything to him. And just like El Paso is a border town, Sal feels that he is a border boy. He’s a white boy adopted into a Mexican-American family. He’s a sweet boy, but an angry boy. He isolates himself, but hates the idea of being left out. El Paso is truly symbolic of Sal himself. Check out my book feature here! Full review to be posted on February 7th.
My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Now:
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth
What better wine to pair with Veronica Roth’s HIGHLY anticipated new novel than this Starry Night Zinfandel. Fantasy meets science fiction in this novel, very much like the Van Gogh painting that inspired this gorgeous bottle of wine.
Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves
Only a wine as gorgeous as this Wolffer Estate Summer in a Bottle Rose could be paired with a book whose cover is this STUNNING. I am so incredibly excited to read this book by our lovely local author, Rosalyn Eves!
My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Next:
Definitions of Indefinable Things by Whitney Taylor
I recommend pairing this awesome contemporary read with this Francis Ford Coppola Chardonnay, because it has it’s light moments but also gets pretty intense. (I know this has been next on my list for FOUR WEEKS now but I’m getting there!
Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger
Try pairing this Apothic Crush Red Wine with A.V. Geiger’s upcoming book where a harmless crush takes a turn for the dark and dangerous.
Hope you’re all having as amazing of a book week as I am!
