Magazine Monday

Its that time of the week again when I show case the magazines I bought or received in the mail.

I don’t tend to buy alot of magazines on a weekly bases and if I do its because of an article or the cover that catches my eye.

This weeks loot is:

BOUGHT:
In Touch Weekly Sept 27 issue
People
Womans World

Subscriptions:Canadian Living October issue
Chatelaine October issue

Borrowed from Library:
I just discovered these Magazines this summer at the library and they are called New York Tines Book Review. I got Aug 8th, Aug 22 and Aug 29 issues. They are a weekly book review newspaper like magazine. Not only do they have book reviews but they also have the Best Sellers list (Fiction, Non Fiction, trade fiction, mass market fiction,etc) along with the Editors Choice. This is something I would like to subscribe to but its a little pricy for me so I will continue to borrow them from the library.

I love buying Womans World every week because there is always great recipes such as Warm Ginger Spiced Apple Cider and tomato & corn salad, books this week its Sophie Kinsella’s Mini Shopaholic and Coco Chanel by Justine Picardie and many great articles such as how to sail through allergy season sniffle free, 5 ways on how to get back to sleep (which I need) and bed bugs plus many more.

As for People and Us Weekly I like picking them up for a quick read. People this week had a great book section. They mentioned The Wave by Susan Casey (this sounds really good), and out in paperback is Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls, Where the Money Went by Kevin Canty and Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel(which I am dying to read but sadly I don’t like the paper back cover)plus other books mentioned were Mini Shopaholic, Salvation City, Half Empty, Rock What you got (she was on the view last week) and lastly Some We love, Some we Hate, Some we Eat by Hal Herzog. Thanks to the article Fresh Crops I actually took one of the haircuts and had my hair done like theirs.

I don’t subscribe to too many magazines as you can see to date from these posts. This past week was the time that Canadian Living and Chatelaine came in. I was thrilled to get Canadian Living because our Thanksgiving is just around the corner and we always have turkey/chicken (tons of leftovers)and there was 10 recipes for turkey/chicken left overs which I will be trying them out as well has Harvest Bounty recipes (I love trying new recipes). There was also an article on hassle free homework tips which thankfully I read and thankfully we don’t have an issue with homework yet since Michael is only in grade 2.

Another great Canadian magazine is Chatelaine and I have been reading this for ages now. I checked online and unfortunetly they don’t have the October Issue online yet but once they do I will link that in a future Magazine Monday post. For the October issue there are recipes for Thanksgiving and pizza night. I love homemade pizza. I loved the October book Club section as it was jammed filled with great titles such as Nightfall (Michael Cunningham), Safe Haven (Nicholas Sparks), I love your laugh (Jessica Holmes), The Night Bookmobile ( Audrey Niffenegger)and many other titles. Also was an excerpt of Mini Shopaholic. Which I read and makes me want to read my copy of Mini Shopaholic all the more.

So what great Thanksgiving recipes do you enjoy? What magazine articles caught your attention this past week?

Have you read any of the books mentioned in this post?

  1. I’ve looked at the magazines at my local library, but it’s such a small branch that they only have a few and mostly kids ones. Oh well, I guess that gives me more book reading time (in theory).
