Top Ten Tuesday #104

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Top Ten Yummy Foods and Drinks Mentioned In Books. 

Oh man, this is killer for me. I'm so easily led. I get so hungry when I'm reading. Whether it's sweetmeats in a historical novel, watery stew in high fantasy, grand feasts at the merest mention of royalty, I AM THERE FOR IT. I may have had the worst relationship with food in the past, but now I bloomin' love food.

  • Hot Chocolate and Fresh Bread
    You know in The Hunger Games when they're on the train to the Capitol and it's what Katniss eats for breakfast? Yum.
  • Spag Bol
    Specifically the dried stuff in a packet that you add water too. I'd actually gross but Uglies made me crave it.
  • Chocolate Ices
    Maeve in Glass Mountain pretty much always has chocolate ices (little cups of chocolatey goodness that are SO DIFFICULT to find now) and some colouring pencils with her. Relatable.
  • Hazelnut Lattes
    I had never had one of these before reading A Girl Called Malice but now they're my go to. And they're delicious.
  • Jam Donuts
    Thank you Lockwood and Co, for making me drink countless cups of tea and eating a disgusting amount of jam donuts.
  • A Box of Chocolates
    OK, so it's actually the dog, but The Unexpected Everything made me want to indulge in a box of chocolates.
  • Choffee Cake
    This is the signature cake for Ellie in The Cosy Tea Shop In The Castle and in the back of the book there's even the recipe. Mmmmm.
  • McChicken Sandwich
    Thank you, Sarah Millican. As well as making me cry with laughter, you had me making a run to Maccy D's for a McChicken Sandwich.
  • Bacon Sandwiches
    The Canal Boat Cafe sells bacon sandwiches and cup of tea and coffee from the narrow boat, and I wanted so badly to be there next to the canal. Eating a bacon sandwich.
  • All of the Food. Ever.
    Twylla is not a Sin Eater, for she is The Sin Eater's Daughter. So her mother eats all of the food symbolically eating the sins of those who have passed. I want to eat all of the food.


  1. Great list! The Unexpected Everything looks really good (I've had it on my TBR for years) and so cosy. I love the Lockwood food too- they always make me hungry!
