Hi everyone! I hope you had a good week since I last did one of these, mine was pretty quiet really.
Anyway, as it’s Tuesday, it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of Jana At That Artsy Reader Girl. This week we’re talking Books That Made Me Hungry and honestly just rounding up this list made me want a lot of the food mentioned in these books!
- Heartless-Marissa Meyer
I challenge anyone who reads this book not to feel hungry while reading it. I mean Cat is always baking some new sweet treat that sounds completely delicious and I definitely came away from it with a craving for baked goods!
2. The Daevabad Trilogy-S.A. Chakraborty
So much amazing sounding food is mentioned in this book, I could feel my mouth watering at the mentions of some of the food Nahri was eating in Kingdom of Copper!
3. Percy Jackson and The Olympians-Rick Riordan
The blue chocolate chip cookies, the daily camp meals, ambrosia and nectar, bottomless drinks, it definitely seems like you will never go hungry at Camp Half-Blood! Also in the sequel series, Heroes of Olympus, at the Roman Camp, your plate will automatically fill with whatever food you want and this is a power I would like to have!
4. The Exact Opposite of Okay-Laura Steven
It’s impossible not get hungry reading this book because Izzy is constantly thinking about/talking about food (can relate). Whether it’s nachos or milkshakes or popcorn or burgers, there’s always some food related item on the page and I definitely remember feeling very hungry whilst reading.
5. Six of Crows-Leigh Bardugo
WAFFLES. Nina and her love of waffle is pretty infamous by now and I have to admit, I di get a craving for waffles on more than one occasion whilst I was reading this book.
6. Daughter of Smoke and Bone-Laini Taylor
Who didn’t wish that Poison Kitchen was a real place after reading this book? If it did exist I would definitely be there, enjoying the goulash at the coffin shaped tables! Also the number of pastries mentioned in the book…….
7. The Hunger Games-Suzanne Collins
I know it seems odd to include a book where a lot of it revolves around people not having enough food/starving during the games, but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense because Katniss is always talking about food, whether it’s not having enough at it or drooling over all the lavish dishes in the Capitol.
8. Charlie and The Chocolate Factory-Roald Dahl
Honestly you’d probably have rotten teeth after a very brief time at Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, but I’d be lying if I said when I was a kid I didn’t want to try some of the weird and wonderful sweets that Roald Dahl described in his book.
9. The Crown’s Game-Evelyn Skye
LUDMILA’S BAKERY. What can I say, I’m a sucker for any kind of pastry or baked good and so many of the treats that Skye described Ludmila making sounded completely delicious.
10. The Lulu Baker Trilogy-Fiona Dunbar
This is kind of an old one that I read when I was a kid but it definitely fits the bill, the main character, Lulu Baker discovers this magical recipe book which helps her solve problems in her life.
So there we go, those are some books that have made me feel hungry over the years! Have you read any of these? What books make you hungry? Let me know in the comments!
I will be back with another Top Ten Tuesday next week, the topic is meant to be Books For My Younger Self, but I did a topic similar to that a couple of months back and I’ve already done childhood favourite books so instead I’m going to do a different topic, and talk about Side Characters I’d Like To See Get Their Own Book.
