Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel: Admissions Reading Challenge 3 – Book 11

November 29, 2018

This was a singularly interesting book as it was originally written in monthly installments, each chapter including a traditional recipe which is incorporated into the story. The story follows the life of Tita, youngest daughter of Mama Elena, and the trials she faces due to family tradition and her position in the family. The language is wonderful, descriptive, and flowing, the characters are both realistic and fantastic, and their lives are fraught with magic and subject to fate. I great easy read, I loved this book and I want to try some of the recipes myself!

Points: 9.0; Current point balance: 123.5
