From The Review Pile #2

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!

I stumbled across this one this evening and thought it was a great idea and would love to it to my regular line up. So this week will be my first From the Review Pile, so the real question was which book did I want to give a little extra publicity too. 

So this week I decided to pick a book that happens to have been written by my husbands cousin. This book also happens to be the first book my hubby wrote a review on, seems like I'm rubbing off at last. I love the cover and look forward to reading this soon. 

Publication June 14th 2012
Paperback 304 pages

What if there were a taste so delicious that if your found it, you'd never want to eat anything else again?

When eleven year-old Guster Johnsonville rejects his mother's casserole for the umpteenth time, she takes him to the city of New Orleans to find him something to eat. There, in a dark, abandoned corner of the city, they meet a dying pastry maker who tells them of a legendary recipe called the Gastronomy of Peace--a recipe created hundreds of years ago, shrouded in secrecy, and sought after by connoisseurs everywhere. 

So begins a perilous adventure that will take Guster, his clever sister Mariah, and the rest of the Johnsonvilles on a an adventure to ancient ruins, faraway jungles and forgotten caves, where they discover that their search is more then just a quest to satisfy Guster's cravings--it is a quest that could change humanity forever. 

My hubby's review his first one, I must be rubbing off on him.

"So good. Not just saying that because the author is my cousin. I actually really enjoyed it! I found myself absorbed into the story. I felt like i was actually Guster. Indian Jones mixed with DaVinci Code and all at a level for kids to enjoy. So naturally I enjoyed it because I'm a 27 year old kid =)"

Yup I want to read it. Everyone keeps telling me how great it is. I think we need more hours in the day, I would get  so much more reading done.   

Whats from your review pile?
