Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week, she posts an idea relating to books and encourages other book bloggers to respond with their own top ten lists.
This week’s topic is “top ten books that made me hungry.” I haven’t read too many books where food is an important part of the story, but here are ten of the ones that fit the bill:
Tweet Cute and You Have a Match by Emma Lord
I had a craving for sweets throughout all of Tweet Cute, thanks to the monster cakes and other treats scattered throughout the pages. You Have a Match also had a food-focus, and by the end of it, I found myself wanting Cheetos (the crunchy kind, of course).
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Lara Jean’s many cookie recipes inspired me to bake my own cookies before settling down for a re-read.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
After hearing this as a bedtime story when I was younger, all I wanted to do was visit a chocolate factory in real life. I have yet to visit one, but my love for chocolate is still just as strong as it was back then!
The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
This didn’t necessarily make me hungry, but it did make me want to try a Turkish Delight (which, as a kid, I found to be underwhelming).
Love and Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch
This was a sweet read that made me want to immediately get on a flight to Italy in search of the perfect gelato. I recently moved into the Little Italy neighbourhood, so a re-read with some locally-made gelato might have to happen!
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
Everything in Hogsmeade sounded incredible, but I especially wanted to try the Butterbeer. There’s a local bar in Toronto that makes some (called “Betterbeer”) and it was everything I had ever wanted.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The snacks in the circus sounded good, but I was enthralled by the descriptions of the food in the Midnight Dinners. The chocolate mice, in particular, are something I’d love to have!
