Forks, Knives & Spoons by Leah DeCesare is ONE YEAR OLD!

by Samantha

For readers who love Adriana Trigiani, Jennifer Weiner and Liane Moriarty, Forks, Knives, and Spoons is a light-hearted, thought-provoking coming of age story that takes readers on a nostalgic journey back to the 1980s and 1990s. Romantic, witty and warm.

There are three kinds of guys: forks, knives, and spoons. That is the final lesson that Amy York’s father sends her off to college with, never suspecting just how far his daughter will take it. Clinging to the Utensil Classification System as her guide, Amy tries to convince her skeptical roommate, Veronica Warren, of its usefulness as they navigate the heartbreaks and soul mates of college and beyond. 

Beginning in 1988, their freshman year at Syracuse University, Amy and Veronica meet an assortment of guys—from slotted spoons and shrimp forks to butter knives and sporks—all while trying to learn if the UCS holds true. On the quest to find their perfect steak knives, they learn to believe in themselves—and not to settle in love or life.

This book is witty, fun and easy to read. I loved picking it up and it was so hard to put down making it one of my more recent favorites. This is one of those books that when it ends you wish it had kept going. Leah DeCesare is able to make the characters like people we have known our entire lives which makes me just fall in love with this book even more.

To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of this book, there are lots of specials going on but my favorite is the ability to be able to download this to my Kindle in addition to the paperback that I already own. Get your copy of Forks, Knives & Spoons on Amazon today!
