Summary (from amazon.com):
Great books, bloggers, and recipes meet in this fresh and unique cookbook that helps you experience books, not just read them.
Books were selected from the author's book review blog and paired with delectable recipes like "Fairy Touched Calico Brownies" from the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull, "7-Day Layer Dip" from Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall, and "I Hate Chocolate Cake" from Amanda Hocking's Switched. Mouthwatering photos complement every recipe.
The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook includes foreword by Amanda Hocking, authorof the USA Today Bestselling Trylle Trilogy and showcases over seventy reviews with links to book review blogs and author websites. Whether you're a food lover, an avid reader or a book blogger, there's something for you in the 2011 Book Blogger 's Cookbook.
I actually think this cookbook is a very good idea. I know whenever I read a book and they talk about a certain food (over and over)-I start to crave it. And now, foods stated in your favorite books, including: Wings, Shiver, Before I Fall, etc.-are compiled in this cookbook. Amanda Hocking starts the cookbook off with a note of endearment to book bloggers, which she has the utmost respect for. A very nice note that makes book blogging all the more worth it-it's nice to know that authors appreciate what we do every day.
Each recipe starts off with a picture of the book, and the book summary. Then comes the recipe with a delicious looking picture and very thorough instructions. And then the book bloggers come into play. A portion of their review is pasted after the recipe about their thoughts on the book. There are several book bloggers mentioned throughout (as well as a link to their blogs). Bloggers including: Tynga at Tynga's Reviews, Katie at Mundie Mom Book Reviews, Eleni at La Femme Readers, and many more.
I really loved looking through the cookbook at all the pictures and what book they're pictured in. This is a wonderful cookbook for book bloggers, and readers looking for some great novels to read.
And I couldn't help myself-I had to make the "Frozen Hot Chocolate" from Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. I've read (and loved) Maggie's book and the Frozen Hot Chocolate was delicious!
