I don't even really know what to say, but I will try to put something about the reading experience into words.

It was alright.  I teared up a few times.  The descriptions of food were verbose and evocative, sometimes excessively so.  I love Maangchi.

This is a story of grief and mourning, of finding your identity and how it changes as you grow, relationships and connections.

A very emotional and complex look into a multi-cultured mother-daughter relationship, how it can struggle but also contain so much love, and incredible amount of grief.
This book is very detailed and that helps capture the story and feel like you're living it, but also is very detailed about the stuff I wasn't as interested in. The story's non linear elements, particularly at the start didn't really do it for me.
Overall a really good read.

So well written. I was moved to tears in many parts. It was difficult to read her raw storytelling of her mother's journey battling cancer and her ultimate loss. Her writing was so effortless that it made the discussions on grief, guilt, regret easy to feel and understand. 
I loved the descriptions of food and how she connected not only to her mother but to her korean roots through it.
I just wanted to give Michelle a hug 🫂 and tell her how proud her mother would be of her. And how we all make mistakes as adolescents and young adults but its how we grow from them.
What a great start to the new year.
