Happy Friday Bibliofriends,
How has your week been? We are creeping ever closer to half term and I cannot wait to have a chance to switch off and recharge my batteries – this term has been something else! But enough of all that… let’s focus on the fairies in this week’s Fae Friday! 😍
Fae Friday is a weekly blog prompt hosted by the wonderful Kristy at Caffeinated Fae. It seems like the perfect way to spread a little more magic across the blogosphere every week.
Here are the rules:
- Link back to this page on Caffeinated Fae.
- If the prompt idea is from another blog, link to that blog as well.
- Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other!
- Participate when you can & have fun with the prompt!
October 16th prompt:
This week was created by the brilliant Nery from postcardsfromlalaland.com! Faeries are known for their love of food, so we’re wondering:
What books have such fantastic food descriptions that you’re hungry after reading them?
Not gonna lie – Circle of Shadows by Evelyn Skye popped straight into my mind as soon as I read this week’s prompt. The food descriptions in that book made me dedicate an entire paragraph to it in my review (which you can read here, just to check out how much I love the food in this book! 😂) – don’t blame me if you come away from it craving Asian food!
Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal is another book which, although it doesn’t necessarily make me crave the hot chilli goodness inside its pages, has to be a notable mention here for the brilliant incorporation of food into fiction. It’s quite a unique read which has stuck in my memory for a long period of time.
And finally, I could not talk about food in books without an honorary mention to Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin.
I would not be embellishing the truth when I say that I drove all the way to the supermarket just to buy a box of cinnamon buns. The only ones that have come even close to what I imagine they really taste like in the book is Morrisons. I rarely ever shop there and even then I only got to try them once as they always seem to be unavailable every time I get to the store!
And now I am utterly starving. AGAIN! Thanks Fae Friday!! 😂🙄🙈
What are your favourite foodie books? Has any description of food in a book been so powerful that you’ve had to go out and buy it right away? As always, leave me a comment to chat!
Enjoy your weekend Bibliofriends!
