Rainy Day+Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies+my currently favourite Books

So far the weather was too hot for my long baking list I made for this holidays, but luckily today is a rainy day! I baked whole wheat chocolate chip cookies, drunk a hot chocolate and read a lot. Sounds cozy right? I’d like to share with you the recipe and my currently favorite books.

These three books are my favourites at the moment. They’re real spellbinder. I’m a huge fan of historical novels with brave women as the main characters. The order has nothing to do with the ranking.

  1. Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren
  2. The Maid of Fairbourne Hall by Julie Klassen
  3. The Silent Governess also from Julie Klassen (I’m currently reading this book)
