Year 4, Book 55

55. Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen by Julie Powell
I read this book for one of my book clubs. We read the book and then went to see the movie before discussing both. The movie is very loosely based on the book. I didn’t realize it until I started reading the book, but the Julia Child part of the movie is actually based on her autobiography, “My Life in France”, while only the Julie Powell half of the movie is based on Julie and Julia and even that is changed a lot.

The book was a quick, easy read. I found it enjoyable enough. It was nothing great, but it had some amusing moments. If you’re looking for some light reading you could do worse. I give it 5 out of 10.
