Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week there’s a new topic for a top ten list.
This week’s topic is Top Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books (Does a character eat something you’d love? Or maybe the book takes place in a bakery/restaurant that makes yummy things? You could also talk about 10 of your favorite cookbooks if you don’t read foody books). I’m going to list the books, and then discuss the food in my comments.
1. Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – There’s an Oreo obsession in this book, and I’m all for it. Oreos are soooo good, especially dipped in milk. YUM!
2. ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas – The faerie food in these books sounds divine. Feyre said human food tasted like ash, or something similar, compared to what the faeries served.
3. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – The holiday feast scenes in these books always make me hungry. I probably wouldn’t like all the food on the table, but I could eat a ton of the delicious things.
4. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy by Jenny Han – I don’t really remember what Lara Jean bakes, but I love desserts, so yes to everything in this book.
5. All Four Stars by Tara Dairman – I wish I could make half of what Gladys does in this book, but I think some of my favorites are probably the desserts at the restaurant. They sound delicious.
6. Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen – I don’t think I’ve ever craved food more than when I was reading this book. The pizza, the fries, and yes, even the suckers. Sarah made it all sound so amazing.
7. Royally Screwed by Emma Chase – I haven’t finished this book yet, but the part I did read had delicious pies mentioned. And I love a slice of pie (apple, pumpkin, etc.) as much as the next person.
8. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins – I’m pretty sure Lola’s parents made pies. I’d really have to go back and check, but I’m like 95% positive. So yay for more yummy pies in books.
9. Suffer Love by Ashley Blake – Sam cooks, which is an amazing thing for a guy–let alone a teen–to do. And it seems like he really knows what he’s doing in the kitchen, so even more points for him.
10. The Real Thing by Melissa Foster – Willow owns a bakery, so you know there’s lots of goodies being mentioned in this book. I craved sweets while devouring this read.
Have you read any of the books I listed here? If so, what’d you think of them?
