WARNING: This post may make you hungry.

The Big F by Maggie Ann Martin —  I always craved pizza while reading this! Porter, love interest and the MC’s co-worker would always bring a pizza to his shift when he was working with Danielle (mc).

Heartless by Marissa Meyer – Cath is a baker and is trying to open her own bakery throughout the novel. She bakes so many delicious cakes and her signature is lemon tarts!

Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han – This was true for all of the books in the series because Lara Jean is an avid baker I was always craving cupcakes or cookies! Specifically, Always and Forever made me crave chocolate chip cookies since LJ is trying to get the perfect recipe down. I ended up making some because it was too hard not to!

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson- Just from the cover to reading the story, Emily gets a job at an ice cream parlor, but she’s usually at the pizza shop, visiting her friend Dawn!

Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – When I first read Simon, I regretted not having Oreos unaware they were mentioned throughout the book. Simon’s favorite cookie is the Oreo, if you didn’t know. But, the next time I read it, I had Oreos in hand!

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli – Becky’s second novel also includes yummy food! For instance, Molly (mc) loves Pinterest recipes and DIY’s and makes DIY edible cookie dough – which I made while reading this! I was inspired and it was sooo good.

Harry Potter – I had to add Harry Potter to this list because the dining hall sounds and looks (from the movies) SO GOOD. They have exquisite feasts all the time!!

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – This novel is set in Paris! We get to see Anna trying so many Paris staple foods such as macaroons. It all sounded sooo good.

Top Ten Tuesday: My Book GIRLFRIENDS!


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. 

Today’s topic:  Top 10 Book Boyfriends/Girlfriends

I’ve been wanting to do this post for so long and I just had to participate in this week’s TTT! However, most of the books I read have whiny girls, so I only have my top seven book girlfriends who are special to me.


  1. Lara Jean Song Covey — If you know me well enough, this should come as NO surprise to you, hense this is my favorite book trilogy. I want LJ to bake me cupcakes for my birthday or for no reason and make me melt. I dream of us baking in the kitchen and getting flour all over each other like she does with Peter K in P.S. I Still Love You.
  2. Gabby (TOP TEN) – I think I talk about this book in every post? But, if I haven’t convinced you to get it yet…IT IS OUT TODAY SO PLEASE GET IT…PRETTY PLEASE. I resonated with Gabby a lot in this book, for many reasons. Like me, Gabby has social anxiety and we get to see all of it in this book. Gabby has a relationship with a girl , Shea and I loved their relationship so much! I love Gabby because I can relate to her and we could sit in and watch Netflix and play board games, order food and be so happy with it.
  3. Isla Martin – I have a strong attraction to girls with red hair and Isla fulfills this for me. She’s intelligent and ambitious, too! I imagine us having a fun day in NYC watching the Macy’s Day Parade together.
  4. Eva (How To Make a Wish) – I EFFING LOVE EVA SO MUCH. When I read HTMAW, I couldn’t stop reading about Eva and Grace. Eva is #bookgfgoals and I felt a little jealous when she was with Grace. But, of course they’re so cute, I can’t take that from them!
  5. Palmer (The Unexpected Everything) – Palmer is a side character, but nonetheless, I was infatuated with her! I loved her driven personality and she was just so cute. She reminds me of Kristy Thomas from The Babysitters Club.
  6. Stacey McGill (THE BSC) – I have to add a throwback here, to my OG book girlfriend, Stacey from The Babysitters Club. Stacey is very cute and sophisticated. I always admired her! She reminded me of a friend/crush I had in grade school.
  7. Massie Block (The Clique) – My crush on Massie from The Clique was the peak of my sexuality. How I didn’t realize until just this year I was a gay woman, IDK. I loved reading about Massie and how sassy she was. I remember wanting to be her and have a dog named Bean. Plus, how hurt I was when she went on a date. She always had great ideas and was so much fun! Even though she was a mean girl, I crushed on her so bad.

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. 

Today’s topic:  10 Books From X Genre That I’ve Recently Added To My TBR List — I want to know what books have piqued your interest lately from whatever genre you choose!

In honor of June being Pride Month, here are the top ten LGBTQIA+ books I’ve recently added to my TBR and some I hope to read this month.   

1. Over You by Amy Reed  (bisexual mc)

2. Top Ten by Katie Cotugno – follows a bisexual mc (got this ARC at Bookcon!)

3. Queer there and Everywhere: 22 People Who Changed the World
by Sarah Prager This first-ever LGBTQ history book for young adults will appeal to fans of fun, empowering pop-culture books like Rad American Women A-Z and Notorious RBG.

4. Starting From Here by Lisa Jenn Bigelow  middle grade lgbtqia+ coming of age. 

5. How To Make a Wish by Ashley Blake bisexual mc & own voices!! – I just bought this from The Strand Bookstore while in NYC last weekend!. 

6. Honey Girl by Lisa Freeman – I received this duology from the publisher and I’m ecstatic to get into it! Set in the summer of 1972, it follows a girl who is discovering that she likes girls.

7. Coffee Boy by Austin Chant I already have this on my TBR for the month and I’m excited to read this own voices book about a transgender boy.

8. Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde – has been getting so much hype recently that I couldn’t resist adding it to my TBR list. I know this follows a f/f love story (between a character with my name?? so I’m destined to read it, I guess.) Also follows a girl who has autism spectrum disorder and anxiety.

9. History Is All You Left Me by Adam SilveraI still have not read any of Adam Silvera’s work please shun me. But, I do want to pick up his recent release because I’ve heard so much praise for it!

10. It’s Not Like It’s A Secret by Misa Sugiura This book sounds like it’s more of a coming of age/coming out story of a girl who has her first crush on a girl. I’ve never read this perspective before, so I’m interested to see how it turns out!

Happy Pride Month!
