To put it simply, reading Baking & Babies was like coming home to some old friends. I’ve been reading Tara Sivec’s Chocoholics series, shortly after finishing the original Chocolate Lovers series, since the Love & Lists was released. I loved every minute of the series, but it’s been awhile since I read those books and forgot how much I missed the characters, situations, and absurdity that Sivec writes so well. From the start, this book reminded me why I can never get enough of these books.
In this book readers get a glimpse at another member of this large and strange family we’ve grown to love over the years. Not much is known of Molly before this book starts, and it was great to see her character develop and change. It was also great to have a new character pop up, adding a fresh set of eyes to what readers have come to accept from the characters at this point. I really liked how Marco fit in, while also reminding us what “normal” can be.
The only “downfall” is that this is the final book in the Chocoholics series. Was I sad to end it? Of course. Was it done well? No denying that. Does this mean I’ll have to reread the books and enjoy them all over and over? Yes, this will be a series that I make an exception to my “no re-reading” rule. I can’t wait to revisit all the hilarious and horrific (sex/)escapades Sivec can cook up for her books. These books will never get old for me.
