A girl’s got to read, this all Clutchettes know. So, to help navigate the ever-expanding world of books, Uptown Literati is here to provide a weekly reading list. We’re a fresh, book blog for cool girls and great reads (check us out on our site [uptownliterati.com] ) and we’ll be dishing on what you need to be reading now: classic tomes, sassy fiction, juicy tell-alls and every type of paperback in between. Happy reading!

Who: The Get ‘Em Girls (a.k.a. cookbook authors Shakara Bridgers, Jeniece Isleyey and Joan A. Davis), funny chatty Kathys who feel like the burnin’ friends you never had.

What: The Get ‘Em Girls Guide to the Power of Cuisine:Perfect Recipes for Spicing Up Your Love Life, a down-to-earth cookbook for all that believe that a way to a man’s heart is through his belly. Whether you want to go for a simple dinner for two this V-Day (their recipes for Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze and the Kiss o’ Honey Potatoes get our stamp of approval), impress the aunties at the next Sunday dinner (consult the chapter “It’s Not His Mama’s”) or get his attention off of the TV and onto you during a football game, The Get ‘Em Girls have got your back. And with simple-to-understand instructions, fun illustrations and many, many helpings of sassy humor, this book is fun to flip through even if you haven’t got a special occasion in mind.

And if you enjoy this cookbook, check out the second in The Get ‘Em Girls series, Guide to the Perfect Get-Together.

Why: Whether you’ll be grabbing a man to snuggle with or curling up alone come February 14th, it’s always nice to do it on a full stomach.
