    A collection of recipes and projects organized by season and month. I like the idea of working through the Fall and Winter ones, since those are the best seasons to want baking smells, cozy things, and the comfort of creating something. These things can keep you in tune with small plea...

    I'm one of those people who gets overwhelmed by all the fun seasonal things I should be doing. This book gives me a few options for recipes, crafts, and activities each month, making it easier for me to feel like I have been adequately festive. I usually try one of her suggestions per ...

    3.75. Quick list of things I want to try: the cute and practical Bento box lunches. A hot tea made with almond milk, turmeric, and honey. Quick dry clay coasters with a burlap print and watercolor wash. Pantry organization - the photos were inspiring. Also I would like a Corgi dog, ple...

    I LOVED this book. The suggestions for crafts were adorable and easy to implement. Some of the food recipes were "highbrow" but not so much so that I felt intimidated. I loved the thoughtful suggestions for ways of interacting with your world. The pictures drew you in and gave you peac...

    Back when I was 20 and considered things like making homemade lip balm and agua frescas and the sort, I would have loved this book. That time has passed. More aspirational than inspirational if that actually makes sense. ...

    I think it must be really hard to write a crafty lifestyle book, especially one based on a blog. By the time it's released, all the same ideas are already on Pinterest. I am a sucker for beautiful, homey, lifestyle photography and the Year of Cozy really delivers in that area. Very...

    I received this book as a GR Giveaway in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed the concept of this book. It's full of interesting recipes, craft ideas and lifestyle considerations, divided into the seasons of the year. The recipes are easy to follow and have some interesting tw...

    This is a quick fun read with some great ideas. I really like the idea of seasonal living and it is certainly on trend. I loved how each item was also presented with a beautiful photo. Nothing more annoying then a "how to" without pictures. I got a few ideas for things I would like to ...

    After thinking about this book more, I'm taking my rating down from three stars to two. I like the idea of this book, and I especially like how the book is sectioned into seasons, but most of the recipes and crafts don't really evoke "cozy" to me. Some of the recipes seem prett...

    While I mostly read this aspirationally (there are cereal boxes in my oven and not much cooking happens in my little studio apartment) I found it to be a truly pleasant read. Fun to tuck a bunch of these recipes away for later, or maybe to hope I can convince one of my more culinary-in...

    I checked out this book from the library prior to buying it to make sure that the recipes and the craft activities were things that I would a.) be interested in, and b.) actually be able to do. I was not disappointed! I was the weirdo who read the entire book on a Sunday, just like it ...

    This is a really cute collection of recipes and crafts, and I enjoyed the author's blurbs throughout the book as well! Also, I cannot wait to make the blackberry walnut pie this weekend ? ...

    this book had a lovely-- and cozy-- layout. and she owns a corgi!! immediately a 5-star rating! ;) I really think I'd enjoy perusing this book often and need to add it to my birthday list. I love the idea of making a "to-do" list by month/season, with little emphasis on holidays and...

    Lots of neat ideas and awesome recipes. Think I'm gonna have to buy this one at some point. ...

    Beautifully photographed. It feels like an extra thick magazine with a smattering of all the currently popular projects: recipes, gardening, crafts, tips about self-care and doing it all in rhythm with the seasons. I don?t want to be mean, but it feels like it?s trying to be everyt...

    A great concept and provides ideas to aspire to. Although by seasons, there are things to do and make that can be done any time of year. Read this to be more specifically about her year of cozy (like I don't have a dog) - but should inspire others to create their own year of cozy! ...

    I totally love this book!!! So many beautiful crafts to try and amazing recipes also. I am a huge fan of the authors blog so the book just brings everything to life! If you are a DIY individual this is the book for you! ...

    A book of Pinterest-pretty, eminently bloggable and instagrammable projects, recipes, and ideas. And organized not only seasonally, but also by MONTH!! Some are so hipster it almost hurts (making a pet teepee!), but everything, including the trendy-hipster-inspired ones, looks really t...

    What a cute book! I knew it would have recipes since it is based on a food blog, but it also has many other things to make and ideas to do and experience. Plus the recipes are not the ordinary and look easy to try. Flavoured butters and honey, fruit sugars, homemade goat cheese.. plus ...

    I love her blog so naturally I had to read this. I think this is possibly the best mix of non-fiction I can think of. A cookbook and craft book in one! Plus numerous other ideas for inspiration. The photography and ideas are great and it even included Amelia her adorable Corgi. I reall...

    While the photography is beyond gorgeous, I also loved the author's fun, warm writing style. She definitely seems like a friend you could share a cup of coffee with. Finished the book with a chicken dumpling and ice cream recipe to try, a few crafts to do, and a revived love for Corgis...

    This book was enjoyable, but at the end, there were only 3 things I wanted to make from the entire tome. Books of this type are always a bit aspirational, which I'm fine with, but some of the crafts (10 crystals from Amazon.com glued to a mirror?) verged on the absurd. Pretty pictures ...

    I just love this book. It's so warm and inviting. The concept is darling and the recipes and other little ideas for crafts and homemaking are simply adorable. It's such a sweet book to page through, and inspires all kinds of fun little adventures. It's encouraged me to make my 2016 "Th...

    Cute crafts and interesting recipes. I think my 20-something daughter will like this better than I did, and between the two of us, we will probably make a few things out of it. I checked it out of the library and would not spend the money on it, though. Many recipes call for ingredient...

    I'd rate it 2.5. I love the concept of this book: live seasonally and have your cooking, crafts, reflections, and adventures suit the corresponding season. I consider myself somewhat crafty, motivated, and a creative cook, but I didnt feel inspired to replicate any of the book's sug...

    The title and premise of this book is great--the introduction had me nodding enthusiastically--but the book itself is just okay. There are a few good recipes and craft projects, but I honestly can't see myself or anyone else I know doing most of the suggestions, basically because of ho...

    I read this book within two settings and it wasn't bad. It was kind of like Pinterest in book form, and my favorite part was her beautiful photos and fun explanations about why she loved making/doing the things in the book. One thing I didn't like was that she made the projects seem...
