    Food and Books....you can't ask for a better combination.  We all love to eat, and most everyone loves to read. I always enjoy when a book includes some recipes in the content as part of the story, but what is even better is when the book sparks an idea for the reader to find and share a recipe that accompanies the book.   If you take a look at THE 2012 BOOK BLOGGER'S COOKBOOK, you won't even have to go searching for a recipe.  A recipe is provided for the selected books so you get a two-for-one t Food and Books....you can't ask for a better combination.  We all love to eat, and most everyone loves to read. I always enjoy when a book includes some recipes in the content as part of the story, but what is even better is when the book sparks an idea for the reader to find and share a recipe that accompanies the book.   If you take a look at THE 2012 BOOK BLOGGER'S COOKBOOK, you won't even have to go searching for a recipe.  A recipe is provided for the selected books so you get a two-for-one treat while you are reading and also for a related dish to take to your next book club. I am a sweet tooth, and found wonderful recipes paired up with the books identified in the THE 2012 BOOK BLOGGER'S COOKBOOK.  Lumba Berry Pie and its crust is so versatile and looks so yummy.  The crust can be used for sweet or meat pies.  This was my favorite recipe in the book.  It is paired up with the book, BEYONDERS by Brandon Mull. A few other recipes in the sweet category, not necessarily the book, that caught my eye were:   Threaded Apple Pastry paired up with WARPED by Maurissa Guibord Beignet Chess Squares paired up with GYPSY KNIGHTS by Rhett and Lafe Metz   Caramel Crack paired up with SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi. Two non-sweet meals that looked good were: Rosemary, Sea Salt and Creme Fraiche Croissants paired up with STARCROSSED by Josephine Angelini Everling Tomato Soup paired up with EVERNEATH by Brodi Ashton. Enjoying the book as well as finding a recipe to take to a book club or to enjoy alone or with a group as you are letting others know about the wonderful book you just read is simple when you have this cookbook handy. You get to enjoy reading, cooking, and sharing all in one.

    I actually sat down and read it, but then again, I like reading cookbooks anyway. :) I got some great ideas for some books to read and well as some recipes to try. Thanks Christy!

    No doubt you are here reading this post on this blog because you love books just as much or more than I do. There is nothing like a literary adventure to escape your own world, find a new love, fear for your life or solve an unsolvable murder mystery. Sometimes these adventures seep out into other aspects of an avid readers life. For instance, you will hear about authors that have composed a lovely play list to go along with their novel. I too have found myself thinking of Shiver's Sam and Grace No doubt you are here reading this post on this blog because you love books just as much or more than I do. There is nothing like a literary adventure to escape your own world, find a new love, fear for your life or solve an unsolvable murder mystery. Sometimes these adventures seep out into other aspects of an avid readers life. For instance, you will hear about authors that have composed a lovely play list to go along with their novel. I too have found myself thinking of Shiver's Sam and Grace when I hear Trains - Hey, Soul Sister or of Rose and Demitri's forbidden love when the soulful rendition of Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley sooths my mind. Author Christy Dorrity takes us one step further in The Book Bloggers Cookbook by adding another one of the human bodies amazing senses to her love of books. By creating and sharing recipes that easily accompany some of her favorite books, Christy has written the second edition of The Book Bloggers Cookbook. The evolution of recipes merging with literary loves only seems natural. After all, every time I make Venison Chili I think of Katniss and Gale, or Apple Pie reminding me of The Dark Divine and even Chocolate Frogs taking me back to Hogwarts on the Hogwarts Express. Yes, even food ties me to my favorite books and now that you think about it, you may be realizing it does the same for you. Not only does The Book Bloggers Cookbook have delicious recipes - all 22 of the recipes are paired with the description and cover of the inspiring book. For example, the recipe that I know will be a family favorite at every summer picnic, reunion and camping trip is Root beer Cookies. Inspiration for this recipe comes from Shannon Hale's Austenland, a book I have not yet read, but have discovered I will enjoy because of this great Cookbook. I recommend The Book Bloggers Cookbook for any book blogger or cook out there; especially those of you that have a passion for the Young Adult genre. In addition to excellent book recommendations and recipes you will find quotes from many of today's popular book blogger's. The Book Bloggers Cookbook recieves a five skully review from My Life With Books by combing two things I all love and must have to survive - good books and food.

Personally, the only thing I like better than reading is eating, and to see all these recipes that compliment my favorite books is sheer perfection! The book choices: I really like that almost all of the teen books that were chosen are familiar titles to me. The fact that many are books that I have read and loved really makes me anticipate all the other books listed even more. Though I am less familiar with the middle grade and adult books mentioned, I can still make the recipes even if the books don’t turn out to be my thing! The recipes: I LOVE all the recipes that are presented in this cookbook. Seriously, I want to eat them all RIGHT NOW. I am pleasantly surprised to find that this cookbook contains more than one different type of dish. It doesn’t just have frou-frou deserts or only appetizers. No. This cookbook has a variety of different delectables ranging from ribs, to cakes, to bubble tea. The other thing I like about the 2012 Book Blogger Cookbook is the layout and presentation of each section which is especially helpful for the books I have already read. The recipes aren’t just randomly thrown together. For each recipe/book combination there is an explaination as to why they fit together. This really makes them seem that much more enticing. The bloggers: Having direct quotes from bloggers for each individual book is honestly a really good idea. It really helps bridge the gap between author and reviewer, as well as provides some great new authors and bloggers that I can stalk! Overall: I really like this book as a whole, and I think all of the different parts are very well thought out and executed making this entire book shine. This cookbook was truly a pleasure to read, and I cannot wait to try out one (or two or three) of the recipes! The Cover: I‘m a little disappointed that the cover of the 2012 Book Blogger Cookbook leans more towards a cookbook type cover rather than a fantasy whimsical type cover. But, it certainly does fit the book, and the cover goes beautifully with book one, the 2011 Book Blogger Cookbook. I give this book 5 out of 5 hearts: Very Highly Recommended!

    I loved Christy Dorrity's first 2011 Book Blogger Cookbook and as a passionate baker I was very much looking forward to this second volume of Christy's bookish recipes. I will confess that my favourite part, the "I'm impatiently turning the pages to get there" part are Christy's introductions/explanations on how and why such book inspired that recipe and why she thinks they fit together. Sometimes the reason is a cover, a setting, a character or even a meal featured in the novel, but every time I I loved Christy Dorrity's first 2011 Book Blogger Cookbook and as a passionate baker I was very much looking forward to this second volume of Christy's bookish recipes.

Sometimes the reason is a cover, a setting, a character or even a meal featured in the novel, but every time I am excited to discover this special link pairing the treat with the story. Once again the cookbook has plenty of easy and quick recipes that don't require hours of slaving away in the kitchen and can be whipped up in no time. But Christy takes it up a notch by including some more complex and challenging recipes for seasoned cooks which require some experience or at least effort and time on the baker's end. I'm sure I would have enjoyed the recipes and their connection to the books if I had read these novels, but as I mostly read adult titles I wasn't familiar with the featured books (there were 2 adult titles and the rest were YA or children's books). (my request for the 2013 Blogger Cookbook: please include more adult titles, don't leave us out! ;-) I find it applaudable how besides the big shot, popular and famous titles (like Divergent, Matched and Starcrossed) Christy Dorrity also highlights some lesser known and indie titles as well. Verdict: Once again I was blown away by the creative and delicious recipes (I loved the fantasy names Christy Dorrity gave to each one of them, they were memorable and evocative). The 2012 Book Blogger's Cookbook is a wonderful and mouth-watering compilation of bookish recipes ranging from simple whip up treats to more complex and time consuming concoctions, a must try for any book lover! Content: 7/10 Cover: 10/10 - Once again it has a very professional and eye-catching cover, and I love how both the reading and the delicious treats are included on it :-)

    THE 2012 BOOK BLOGGER'S COOKBOOK by Christy Dorrity is such a neat idea. If you follow me on twitter, you know my love for baking, so a cookbook that combines my two favourite things – reading and food – is definitely a good thing.

If you follow me on twitter, you know my love for baking, so a cookbook that combines my two favourite things – reading and food – is definitely a good thing. Christy has combined twenty-two young adult/middle grade books with recipes suited for each story. Each recipe consists of a picture of the book cover, synopsis, explanation for the chosen recipe, photo of the finished product and then the recipe itself (ingredients and instructions), and blurbs from book bloggers about the book. The recipes range from meat main dishes, to sweets, breads and even a drink. I will definitely be trying out some of the desserts (like the Beignet Chess Squares associated with Gypsy Knights by Rhett and Lafe Metz and the Wind-Whirled Ice Cream Cake associated with Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon). Unfortunately, no matter how good the meat main dishes look, I won’t be trying them since almost all of them contain a pork product, which I don’t eat. I may be able to substitute chicken or beef, though, and still have them work out. However, if you’re less picky than I am and do eat pork, these recipes sound and look really yummy! While a cookbook on its own would strike my interest, I really enjoy that the recipes are attached to books. Not only do you get some great food ideas, but new book ideas as well! There are a few books found in THE 2012 BOOK BLOGGER'S COOKBOOK that I have yet to read and they have definitely caught my attention. The blurbs from bloggers really help to get an idea of the books being showcased. Now if only I could get this in hardcopy so I can take it into my kitchen and start baking. I’ve been craving ice cream, so ice cream cake sounds good right about now! Originally posted at Escape Through the Pages with a 3.5 out of 5 rating.

I really enjoyed the matching of each recipe to each book and the titles of the recipes fitting each one perfectly. In this years cookbook Christy has chosen 22 amazing books to pair up with a recipe. Ones that just reading the ingredients had my mouth watering. I'm going to be making Everling soup tomorrow night for dinner and I'm so excited about it. (I'll make sure to post pics right here on the blog for you all to see how it turns out!) I can't wait to try each and everyone of these great recipes out for myself. I was so excited when this amazing author came to me and asked me to be part of the tour for her cookbook and so extremely excited to see the couple words I sent her about Everneath actually in the book. All the pictures look so good in this book and the recipes look pretty simple to me. I like that about a great cookbook, if its simple I love it! I love the explanations about how each book fits each recipe and how the books inspired each one. I also really loved how Christy fit the amazing top selling YA books and mixed in some of the less known ones as well. Anyone that loves books and food, this is the perfect fit for you! Checking this book out is a definite must read!

    I’ve had the honor of reviewing this book for a second year and it’s as good as before. I love how there are recipes to go with each book, not necessarily from the book like there in many cozy mysteries.

My only regret is that this doesn’t come in print format for the recipes that I would love to try Carmel Crack and Rosemary, Sea Salt and Crème Fraiche Croissants. I’m not ready to take my iPad into the kitchen yet. Thank you once again for coming up with a wonderful recipe for books and food combined. Looking forward to next year’s addition already I highly recommend that you check it out on Amazon you will be able to find last year's edition also. Happy reading and cooking always a great combination.

    The 2012 Book Blogger's Cookbook contains 22 books and recipes which relate to those books. The books featured include popular titles such as Divergent, Everneath, Shatter Me, Matched, and Clockwork Angel, just to name a few.

I had a lot of fun reading up on the recipes and the reasons why the recipes were chosen for the book. Some of the reasonings are a stretch, of course, but it's still a lot of fun. The book itself is well organized. There's a contents page at the front of the book with links to every section. There's also three indexes at the back, so you can look up content by book title, author, or recipe. I appreciate this organization, and I think everything was laid out very well. While I haven't had a chance to test out the recipes yet (which, I know, makes it hard to review the book), they all look and sound pretty delicious. I like how there's a good mixture of main dishes, desserts, and other types of recipes. Out of all the recipes I think I'm most excited to try out the rosemary, sea salt, and creme fraiche crossaints, which are connected with Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. If you love books and you love cooking there's not really a better way to combine them than to check out the Book Blogger's Cookbook.

We get delicious ideas for food to make while also learning about books and what some book bloggers thought of them. I think it's brilliant. I thought so last year with the 2011 edition and I'm of a same mind with this year's edition. The books featured are predominantly of the young adult genre with a few middle grade titles and a couple of adult titles thrown in. If I had one suggestion, it would be to add more adult titles for those of us who read more adult books than YA. I can think of some amazing historical fiction titles that would be great in a future Book Blogger's cookbook. I recommend this cookbook to anyone who loves to cook, or loves food in general, and to those who love books. I'm looking forward to the future editions. Keep them coming, Christy!

The blogger quotes are just the icing on the cake ;) I loved picking up a book that let me not only discover new recipes, but also new book bloggers. This is such a clever idea, and I'm so glad Christy Dorrity decided to tackle the task. Stellar job!

Each book and recipe has a handful of quotes from bloggers and many of these blurbs have helped me to add so many of these great books to my wishlist.

    This was a very odd "cookbook" to me. I saw it more as a paid advertisement for books in the market. I think there were approximately 15 books that were featured with a synopsis of the book, one recipe and then bloggers reviews. A chunk of the recipes are easily located in a basic internet search and were not anything special. I downloaded this book for free from Amazon. If I had actually paid for this, I would be ticked and returning it very quickly. Another note that I found interesting is tha This was a very odd "cookbook" to me.

    It's here! The 2012 Book Blogger's Cookbook. I'd have to say that this was one of my favorite cookbooks to read. I loved to see the books that were picked, the summaries of each were helpful, especially for those that I haven't read. I thought the recipes were creative. There were several that I am going to have to make time to try especially the Beignet Chess Squares, Lumba Berry Pie and Modern Day Rootbeer Cookies! I also enjoyed reading the comments about each book from fellow bloggers. This It's here! The 2012 Book Blogger's Cookbook. I'd have to say that this was one of my favorite cookbooks to read.
