Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
Today’s Top 10: Ten Books That I’m Sweet On
Today’s topic is supposed to be
Favorite Words but, I just can’t think of any favorite words, so, since it’s close to Halloween, and my favorite part of Halloween is all the sweets around, I did Ten Books That I’m Sweet On (books that feature sweet treats!)
Click on the cover to go to my Review of the book (or Goodreads)!
1. The Magic of Lemon Drop Pie. This book includes a recipe for Lemon Drop Pie!
2. Mad Honey by Jodie Picoult and Jennifer Finney Boylan. Honey! And recipes featuring honey are inside the book. I’m especially interested in the recipe for Queen Bee Cocktail.
3. Once Upon a December by Amy E. Reichert. The main character, Jack, works in his family’s bakery in the Christmas market, his specialty is Kringle (a danish pastry) Yum!
4. Snowed in for Christmas by Sarah Morgan. The main character, Ross’s family has a shortbread company called Glen Shortbread.
5. When in Rome by Sarah Adams. The main character, Noah, works took over his grandmother’s pie shop.
6. The Frederick Sisters are Living the Dream by Jeanie Zusy. The main character Ginny overdoes on strawberry Jello.
7. Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman. When things get bad, nothing helps as much as Chocolate Tipsy Cake.
8. Fake it Till You Bake it by Jamie Wesley. Former NFL player Donovan Dell started his own cupcake bakery.
9. Lizzy Blake’s Best Mistake by Mazey Eddings. Lizzy Blake is a pastry baker and dreams of selling french pastires.
10. Black Cake by Charmaine Wilkerson. The entire book is about Eleanor Bennett’s black cake recipe.

What a great topic and the food pictures are mouth watering! The only one I’ve read is Snowed in for Christmas and I craved shortbread the entire read!
I love this post so much! As you know I have a new found appreciation for books with food in! I will have to remember this post when I have more time to read food based books!
I love your twist this week! Such fun! And now I need to find some dessert. 😉
All your pictures have made me hungry.
Awesome topic! I totally want some sweets right now. You chose some great covers. 🙂
That is such a wonderful detour from this week’s theme, or rather, totally drool-worthy detour and now I am hungry.. I have only read a couple of these books so now I have so many to feed on 🙂
Oh, my! What a great idea to post a picture of the desert with the book cover. I think I may have gained a few pounds just looking at the photographs!
I love your tweak on this week’s topic!! Great list and I love the sweets represented!
Thank you, Cindy
Welp, I need to get a napkin to wipe the drool off my laptop keys! Fantastic post.
Thank you, Kimberly! It was fun for me to put together.
I love the idea for this list Wendy and some great choices. The only one I could think of was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which I love but wouldn’t be able to come up with any more 😂
Oh! That’s a good one!
What a great list, Wendy. My tummy is growling now. Sweet treats are my favourites too.
Thank you, Carla!
A lovely post & yummy looking pictures 💕
Thank you, Jenny!
I love this twist so much! And now I’m super hungry!
Black Cake was exceptional and the whole time I kept picturing it while reading the novel!
It was difficult to find all those photos of food while hungry! Thanks Sara.
Such a sweet twist for this week 🙂
Thank you, Sarita!
Oh my gosh! What a great pivot. I have to say, though, that I hate reading books with food in them because it makes me SOOOO hungry, especially for desserts and I need those like I need another hole in my head, lol. I still read books with food in them, though, because I can’t resist.
I feel the same, Jenni! I try to resist, but it’s so hard.
Oh my yum! I love pastries and chocolate and chocolate pastries. Now I really want something sweet…Fun list.
Thank you, Susan.
Lemon Drop Pie looks so good. I wonder if it’s like lemon meringue pie?
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
This post is making me so hungry! Yum. 🙂

What a fun topic, Wendy! I always get a kick out of recipes included in books.
A former football player baking cupcakes? I love that premise!
It’s a fun book, Tanya! I love recipes I find in books too.
Sweet post! And now I’m hungry for dessert. ;D
Met too, Lark!
Great list you have here.
Thank you, Nadene!
Once Upon a December sounds cute and it reminds us of the Anastasia song.
It was very cute!
I love that first cover! And Snowed in for Christmas as well. that blue door gets me every time. Shortbread doesn’t hurt as well! I love how you combined covers and food!
Thank you, Greg

I do love books set in bakeries or restaurants! This is such a fun theme! Your photos made me hungry!
