Top Ten Tuesday | Feed me a story


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!

This week’s theme is ‘Books that Make Me Hungry’, so I’m talking about novels that involve food in some way or another!


Recipe for Persuasion by Sonali Dev: The heroine of this contemporary Persuasion retelling is a chef, and I’d really like to try it!

The Land Where Lemons Grow by Helena Attlee: This is a history of Italy via lemons, and as someone who loves history and loves Italy it’s crazy that I still haven’t read this.

With the Fire On High by Elizabeth Acevedo: I’ve heard wonderful things about this novel, in which the heroine is an aspiring chef, and that cover is gorgeous.

Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune by Roselle Lim: After her mother dies, Natalie Tan discovers she’s inherited her grandmother’s restaurant in San Francisco’s Chinatown. I love the sound of this novel, so it’s about time I read it!

Welcome to Rosie Hopkins’ Sweet Shop of Dreams by Jenny Colgan: This is such a fun adult contemporary novel, about a woman who moves to the country to care for her great aunt and ends up taking over her sweet shop.


Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder: I read this novel years ago and never continued the series, but I did enjoy it. The heroine, Yelena, is taken from death row to become a food taster for Ixia’s Commander.

Chocolat by Joanne Harris: I’ve seen the film adaptation of this plenty of times, but I’ve never read the book!

A Dash of Trouble by Anna Meriano: The heroine of this fantasy MG series is from a family of brujas who own a bakery and it sounds adorable.

The Last Banquet of Temporal Confections by Tina Connolly: I adore this fantasy novelette about a woman and her husband, who just so happens to be a baker, who decide to overthrow a tyrant.

Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen: I’ve had this novel about a family of witches with a talent for making life-altering delicacies on my TBR for years. One of these days I need to cross it off my TBR.

Which books made your list this week?

    We have a few books in common, including Recipe for Persuasion! I have a different Jenny Colgan book on my list, but so many of her books revolve around sweets or baking, and they always leave me wanting to try everything. I haven’t read the Rosie Hopkins book yet, but I think I need to add it to my TBR. πŸ™‚
