Great books, bloggers, and recipes meet in this second volume of a fresh and unique cookbook that helps you experience books, not just read them. This year's volume features even more tasty reads, recipes and book bloggers.

Books were selected from the author’s book review blog and paired with delectable recipes like “Caramel Crack” from Shatter Me, by Tahereh Mafi, "Everliving Soup" from Brodi Ashton's Everneath, and "Jagged Ham" from Elana Johnson's Possession.
Mouthwatering photos complement every recipe.

The 2012 Book Blogger’s Cookbook includes a foreword by David Farland, award winning, New York Times Bestselling author, and showcases more than one hundred 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.


"The Book Blogger's Cookbook has the best combination of two of my favorite things: food and books. Overall, it's sort of a dream book for readers who love cooking." Elani at La Femme Readers book reviews

"The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook is a beautiful blend of a cookbook about books. It's worth reading straight through if only to find new books to add to your "to-read" shelf." Lisa Mangum, author of the award winning The Hourglass Door series.

"The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook is more than a mere cookbook. It contains review bits of bloggers stating what they loved about the featured books. The blogger testaments make you want to read the novels and the photos make your mouth water. Perfect combination!" Stella from Ex Libris book reviews

The idea and concept behind The Book Blogger’s Cookbook is simply brilliant. In the 2012 edition, Christy Dorrity has paired twenty two awesome books (compiled of YA stories as well as a variety of middle grade) with twenty two tasty recipes. A summary of each book is embedded along with a collection of comments from recognized book bloggers who have reviewed the titles. Lastly, Christy presents a unique and scrumptious recipe that compliments the book.

There are a variety of succulent entrees, soups, snacks, desserts, and more that would make vampires refuse human blood and rather sink their fangs into one of the delicious recipes. It is a great way to experience new tastes while discovering new literary works. Food enthusiasts and book lovers rejoice together in this wonderful reference book full of yummy treats and worthy reads.

  1. So changes with my mood. Lately, sad to say it is "Better Man" by Pearl Jam. I think that's what its called anyway.

  2. My favorite song of all time is No Rain by Blind Melon, but I think my life would be a happy-go-lucky jazz tune by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. There are so many duets they did together, I can't choose just one!

  3. breaking the habit by linkin park would be my song lol.
    thanks for the giveaway :)

  4. T_T oh boy...I stink at names!!!

    -Crying, Always-

    hahaha every single emotion is connected to my tear ducts somehow...

  5. Mine would be Dream On by Aerosmith. Dream until your dreams come true!

  6. Oh, Happy Day! (I wish every day was that way!)

  7. "Time Out" would probably be my song title :P
