Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Time for another Top 5 Tuesday, and I had a lot of fun coming up with titles for this week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic: Top 5 Books with Food on the Cover (and I have decided to include drinks in this too). I also spent far more time than I would care to admit scrolling through book covers.
When I was looking through the books I have read I was finding a remarkable lack of covers with food (I found like 4 out of about 500 books). So some of these books I have read and a few are on my ideas list, and one is a new YA release that I spotted looking thought the New Teen Books from the library, which I now really want to read. I also almost included A Pho Love Story too but eventually decided against it to get in more new picks.
Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at the Bionic Book Worm and is now hosted by Meeghan at the Meeghan Reads. And now those books.
1. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett, ill. Ron Barrett
I had to include this book, it was one of my favorites when I was little and come on food. The illustrations of food in this book are just great.
2. How to Bake Pi by Eugenia Cheng
This cover is just great, and may be my favorite thing about the book, it is that or the recipes at the beginning of each chapter. This book is a lot of fun and a good popular mathematics book, but since I have a degree in mathematics I already knew a lot of what I was reading about when I read it earlier this year. I still enjoyed it though and I still have to try some of the recipes.
3. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
This book is so cute and I have been meaning to re-read it again soon. And that drink totally deserves to be included in this category, it looks so good. I also just love the cover design for all these books, they are so much fun and just scream fun YA.
4. The Southern Book Club’s Guide To Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix
I have wanted to read this book basically since it came out and got so much buzz but I haven’t gotten to it yet. This cover just says so much, it looks like a lot of fun. I am also a pretty huge Buffy fan so I am pretty much always willing to give books about vampires a try. I have read so many over the years and yes there was a time a few years ago when it seemed like every other book was about vampires, but even so I have read quite a few but none recently, so maybe it is time to read another.
5. We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This by Rachel Lynn Solomon
This is my most recent find, it only just came out and looks like a lot of fun. I have had a fair amount of luck with rom-coms recently and the synopsis reminds me both of a Pho Love Story and Dial A for Aunties which are I take as a good sign. Also how could I resist including a wedding cake on this list. I debated between this book and The Worst Best Man cause that cover is a lot of fun too, but I like the actual cake on this cover better.
Happy Reading Everyone!
