Top Ten Tuesday

Books That Made Me Hungry & The Food They Made Me Crave

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s all about food, which is good because I love food! Well, I love the eating it part at least, though I’m not a huge fan of the actual making it part… But weirdly enough, I also love reading about food! I like when a book makes me crave a certain food. Of course, this is best if said food is within easy reach, which is not always the case.

But oh well, here are some books that made me reallyyy hungry, and the food they made me crave!

Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum


They’re not only on the cover but the characters talk about them, eat them and talk about the verb ‘to waffle’ which isn’t a food but still made me hungry.

American Panda by Gloria Chao


I was craving dumplings so badly while reading this. Darn it, I’m craving dumplings now.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli


This book introduced me to Oreo cookies and now I’m obsessed with all kids of Oreo-goodness, but most of all Oreo icecream and Oreo cheesecake, yum.

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Cupcakes and other baked goods

Lara Jean loves to bake and I love to read about her creations, which I also want to eat but unfortunately can’t because they’re in a book and not on my table.

Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett


I love churros but I don’t get to eat them enough. These characters have churro stands in their town and I am so jealous.

Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

Burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches AND baked goods

Yes, SO MUCH FOOD! Both characters’ families own a food establishment (fast-food chain, hence the burgers, and deli, hence the grilled cheese sandwiches), are fighting about a grilled cheese recipe (mmmm, cheese) and to top all of that food stuff, one character also loves baking and blogs about it. ALL THE FOOD, I CAN’T HANDLE IT!

Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert


Look, I don’t remember all the details about this book I read years ago, but I remember the pizza. I’ll always remember the pizza.

Taming Demons for Beginners by Annette Marie

Cupcakes and cookies

In this book, a girl who loves to bake finds herself in a contract with a demon over cookies. Yes, cookies. Turns out, demons have a sweet tooth. Demons and I have that in common!

Also, the glorious ice cream trio:

Tell Me:

  1. Really should have included the LJ books on my list. Her baking is part of the charm of the series! I have Julie’s on my list despite the fact that I haven’t yet read it. 🙂

    1. Lara Jean’s baking is definitely part of the charm of the series 🙂

    This post made me hungry ?? I love that you included the different foods. I really need to read To All The Boys ?

    1. Haha, let’s all share the food cravings this week with all these food posts 🙂

  3. I can’t decide if I love or hate books that make me hungry!! It always ends with me getting reading snacks!

    1. Haha same! But I love snacks so it’s okay 🙂

  4. Great list! I’m not even the biggest fan of Oreos, and yet I still craved them while reading Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

    1. Haha, that’s the power of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda 🙂

  5. I’d never had Oreos until I read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. The book made me want to try them haha

    1. Haha, same! And now I’m addicted *oops*

  6. Lauren Becker says:

    Simon Vs. really does make you want Oreos. That sounds so good right now. LOL I love food, but I don’t like making it either.


    1. Ah glad to know I’m not the only one who loves food but doesn’t love making it 😉
      Simon definitely made me want Oreos – and the book and the cookie will forever be linked in my mind 🙂

  7. Mmm, I can always go for dumpling!

    1. Same, though it’s been a little too long for me and I must remedy that soon haha 🙂

  8. I thought about American Panda. Except for the drinks. Although I don’t like hot chocolate. It kinda made me think of tea though.

    1. Tea is definitely so good too! 🙂

  9. Oh my goodness, yes to Lara Jean! I craved so many sweets while reading that series. 😉

    1. Yes, that series definitely made me crave so many sweets 🙂

  10. Ha of course Simon and his oreos. Until I read it I had never really tried oreos, can you imagine that. Well of course you can because you had the same thing 😀

    I’ve always liked the cuteness of the cover of American Panda.

    1. Haha yeah I was the same about the Oreos and now I love them 🙂
      American Panda is definitely a cute cover (I also like the new one)
