Main Street Vegan Book Review

Hey there Snuggle Friends,

As a part of my continuing vegucation, I have just finished reading Victoria Moran’s DSC_1103Main Street Vegan. As a holistic health practitioner, Moran shows that making the change to a vegan diet is easy and she demonstrates the baby steps to do so. Moran’s writing style is easy to digest and is a lot like having a conversation with your best friend’s, hippy mom who’s a veteran vegan. Even though she does include a few chapters on animal cruelty, they are well written and informative, and I actually learned a few things (especially what they do for foie gras, yuck.) This book does a great job of presenting basic nutrition without being overwhelming and even includes simple and delicious recipes at the end of each chapter to help illustrate points. (The “Cheapish Chili” is a recipe worth saving!) She even includes chapters on vegan traveling, as well as, meeting and networking with new vegan friends. One of the best parts of this book are the pages of reference at the end that help you find veg friendly products, as well as, names of organizations to support. Main Street Vegan is a quick and entertaining read packed full of veg-awesome information. Go get it, get snuggly and check it out. And don’t forget to let me know what you think!

The Ocean at The End of The Lane Review

Hello Star Shines,

Thank you for tuning in to The House of Snuggles’ very first book review! It is my hope of hopes to supply you all with a fantastic reading and resource list. For our first review, I thought I would start off with some recreational, light reading.

This week’s review is for Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane. This is his newest work and let me say, he did not disappoint.

In a nutshell, this is a fantasy type story about a man’s memory of his youth. Set in Sussex, England, a young boy is drawn to an old farmhouse at the end of the lane and the three strange ladies that live there. In a series of dark, mystifying events we are shown that even the smallest events can have the greatest effect on our lives and how things, especially people, are not always what they seem.

In the typical Neil Gaiman fashion, this story is an easy read. It grips you from page one and is a page turner right up until the end. This is a relatively short book which I easily read in a day. Check it out and let me know what you think!
