Some of us snack while we read, and others of us just find some yummy (sounding) food inside the pages of our books. I tend to be a reader who doesn’t snack while flipping pages, but this doesn’t mean I don’t read some books that are ideal for foodies. As a result, today we talk about books perfect for foodies!
I decided to limit this to the books I own rather than expand it to all the books out there because a: there are a lot and b: I’d rather know a little something about these featured books, even if some I haven’t read. Which is true, many of these I haven’t yet read, and so their placement here is based on their cover art which seems to suggest there’d be some yummy treats inside the pages.
Let’s take a look at the books on my shelves that fit this.
Books Perfect for Foodies
1: Tell me Three Things, by Julie Buxbaum
I mean, there are waffles on the cover. Not sure this plays into the plot, but who doesn’t love waffles? Goodreads
2: The Unliklies, by Carrie Firestone
Don’t know if this has anything to do with food as a story, but we have to love all that ice cream on the cover, right? Goodreads
3: The Way You Make Me Feel, by Maurene Goo
This one doesn’t indicate its foodie connection on the cover, but the YA heroine does work on her father’s food truck, so it’s got a place on this list. Goodreads
4: The Wishing Season, by Denise Hunter
This one has all those winter vibes on its cover art, but it also features a main character as a chef. Goodreads
5: The Supper Club (Series), by Carla Laureano
I mean, not only does this series feature some tasty-looking covers, there are also some delish dishes inside these pages. The stories of friendship (and romance!) hurt nothing either. Goodreads
6: Two Blue Doors (Series), by Hillary Manton Lodge
This entire series teems with food; so many descriptions and family meals together. Plus, who doesn’t like a good family saga? Goodreads
7: Save the Date, by Morgan Matson
Another one I doubt is all about food, but I kinda’ had to include this one (even though it’s about a wedding in which everything goes wrong) because that cake looks good. Goodreads
8: When Dimple Met Rishi, by Sandhya Menon
I do love a good Frappuccino now and again (no matter how bad they are), so yes, this one gest a mention – and I also still need to read this one book! Goodreads
9: As Easy as Cherry Pie, by Bell Renshaw
Along with a sweet hero, the leading lady her is a baker who bakes up some pretty yummy (sounding!) treats. Goodreads
10: Prince in Disguise, by Stephanie Kate Strohm
Probably doesn’t have much to do with food, but on a crisp autumn day, there’s nothing like a cup of our favorite warm beverage!? Plus this book (about a prince!) sounds too cute. That’s always reason enough to feature a book. Goodreads
11: Stay Sweet, Siobhan Vivian
Ice cream seems a theme on today’s list, but who doesn’t enjoy the decedent treat? Goodreads
12: Love & Gelato, by Jenna Evans Welch
Traveling to Italy is reason enough to pick up a book, but if there’s some tasty food involved, it’s twice as good. Goodreads
