A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet: Southern Stories of Faith, Family, and Fifteen Pounds of Bacon Reviews

  • Robin O'Bryant

    The first book I've read in a long time that I couldn't put down. I read the whole thing in 24 hours (I read really fast) and loved it. Heartwarming and laugh out loud funny. If you like good ole Southern storytelling you will love this book. If you grew up in the South, you'll feel like she's writing about your family!

  • Ginger

    I loved this book and not only because I know the author and it's about my hometown! I also loved it because my husband also read it and loved it. This is the 2nd book he's read in the 4 years we've been married. It took him a year to finish the first and three days to finish this one.

    Oh my goodness! Sophie Hudson needs to put warning sticker on her books stating "Warning - you just might have an accident from laughing too much!" I just absolutely adored every single word of this fun-filled and family-filled book.

    Sophie tells tales on her beloved family and friends in such a manner that you "bless their hearts" and shake your head at the same time! Being blessed with a Southern family of my own, I could relate to most of the hilarious stories collected here. But what I most

    Oh my goodness! Sophie Hudson needs to put warning sticker on her books stating "Warning - you just might have an accident from laughing too much!" I just absolutely adored every single word of this fun-filled and family-filled book.

    Sophie tells tales on her beloved family and friends in such a manner that you "bless their hearts" and shake your head at the same time! Being blessed with a Southern family of my own, I could relate to most of the hilarious stories collected here. But what I most appreciated about this book was Sophie's very real love of her God and the faith she shares so readily. I want to be this gal's best friend - or at least in her circle - for the food alone! (Sophie and her mother graciously share several of their family recipes at the end of the book - as sweet Southern women would!)

    I highly recommend this book as well as Sophie's second book, "Home Is Where My People Are,"

    Loved this book. It's a perfect mix of family stories, spiritual tidbits and a TON of humor. This is easily one of my favorite reads of the year. I laughed till I all but cried at more that one spot and I giggled throughout.

  • Cindy

    This book is a celebration of relationships and the joy of being a southerner. It felt like a Sunday Afternoon Family Reunion with laughter, tears, and did I say laughter? I feel as though I have just finished a special family dinner, satisfied, content, and grateful.

  • Cara McQueen

    If you want to laugh and cry in the same book and fulfill any “homesickness” you may have... this is the book for you. ❤

    As I read this book, I kept picturing all the family gatherings and dinners around my granparents kitchen table. It was an easy read that was fun and tugged at my memory strings.

    There’s nothing quite like family—for good or bad. But in a world where we sometimes know more about the Kardashians than we do the people sleeping right down the hall, it’s easy to forget that walking through life with our family offers all sorts of joy wrapped up in the seemingly mundane. There’s even a little bit of sacred sitting smack-dab in the middle of the ordinary. And since time’s-a-wastin’, we need to be careful that we don’t take our people—and their stories—for granted. Whether it’s a marathon bacon-frying session, a road trip gone hysterically wrong, or a mother-in-law who makes every trip to the grocery store an adventure, author Sophie Hudson reminds us how important it is to slow down and treasure the day-to-day encounters with the people we love the most.

    Written in the same witty style as Sophie’s BooMama blog, A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet is a cheerful, funny, and tender account of Sophie’s very Southern family. It’s a look into the real lives of real people—and a real, loving God right in the middle of it all.

    A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet by Sophie Hudson is a fun, honest book that is overflowing with the love, tears, joy, and other issues and emotions that arise when you put a close, Southern, extended family together. As a member of a large Southern family myself, I was able to immediately relate with the experiences and family members that Sophie described in her book. The book is written in a delightful style and was a simple yet personally convicting read. I liked Sophie's easy style and her inclusion of her personal experiences, feelings, and struggles throughout her lifetime. The book also comes with recipes of classic Southern recipes that Sophie has talked about at different points in the chapters. Overall, I would highly recommend A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet to any reader, Southern or otherwise, who is looking for a sweet yet humorous read that blends hot summers and delightful Southern food in a satisfying way.

    I received this eBook for free from Netgalley and Tyndale House Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Sweet and funny with some thoughtful biblical applications woven into her stories. I don't often laugh out loud, even at books I think are quite hilarious. But her chapter about helping her mother in law learn to use a kindle had me giggling all throughout.

    Let me start by saying that Sophie and I are completely different. This might be exactly why I enjoyed her storytelling so much. I got to sit at her southern table, meet her family members with names and nick names that I have never heard before (Choxie! How cute is that?!) and although I don’t share her love of Jesus (I’m a nice, Jewish girl) I did somehow find her faith to be endearing and not preachy or suffocating. Overall, this was a very random book for me to pick up at the library but I’m

Sophie seems like a heck of a lady and I would love to share some of her memaw’s fried chicken and sweet tea!
