Top Ten Tuesday: Book Covers That Make Me Hungry

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Be warned: you may want to grab a snack before reading this post. I won’t be held responsible for any cravings these book covers might encourage.

On a more serious note, I chose these books based on their covers alone as I haven’t read any of them yet. If you’ve read them, I’d sure like to hear your thoughts on them!

Noah Can't Even by Simon James. Image on the cover is of a peeled banana.

  1. Great list! I love the cover of Noah Can’t Even – it’s so fun.

  2. That last one though! Makes me want to climb our mango tree and get myself some mangoes! 😍

  3. Oh, man. Your warning was a little too late. I already spotted the first of the covers, and now I’m hungry, and I still hold you responsible. xD Love all these foodie covers! The doggie cupcakes are so freaking cute. The chocolates, I think, look the tastiest to me and that title just grabs my attention. It sounds interesting.

    Here’s my TTT post.

  4. I had a late lunch… and I still want some chocolate. Or a cupcake – those dog cupcakes are so cute. Also, the Noah Can’t Even series sounds something I would enjoy reading. Nice!

  5. Seriously! I’m starving now!

  6. Ooh I love food on a cover! A good cover with food on it always makes me hungry too lol. Of these I especially like The Pie and PAstry Bible and One Bowl (I am all about the soup). Also Artisan Bread because- bread!! Haha great topic!

  9. Seriously the artisan bread book is giving me emotions!

  11. Those cupcakes on that cover are ADORABLE!

  12. Serious question: am I starving because it’s lunch time or from viewing these covers? 🤔

  20. Whenever I open a box of appetizing new cookbooks at the library we pass it around the office and ooh and ahh. I have 4 cookbooks lined up at home currently for that very reason. Right now that artisan bread cover is speaking the loudest to me.

  21. I like your clever theme! I’m also drawn to books with citrus fruits on the cover…something about the bright, lush colors, I think!

  22. Oh my, this is a very dangerous topic! That pie…!!!
    I featured my top ten book covers of the decade:

  23. And oddly I am salivating at the cover with bread on it the most! Lol! I love bread!

    The Pie and Pastry Bible looks delicious! And the Adultery Diet sounds hysterical! My stomach was already growling before I read this, now I’m wishing the donut lady had shown up yesterday with the loot (we have a patron that works at a bakery and brings us donut and bagels).

  39. Oh, you’re so right! These covers definitely make me hungry!
    [Excuse me while I go gulp down my hidden stash of Toblerone!😂]

    Great Post! Have a great reading week!

  42. Lydia, I love your hungry twist on this week’s book cover freebie! Most of those cookbook covers are making me hungry, too!

  43. Lili Marcus

    Such a clever idea and now I’m also hungry. 😁

  44. That cupcake book looks adorable! I love to make desserts so this book is intriguing~

  45. Mmm, these make me hungry too, especially the one with the cupcakes. 🙂

  46. Even though I just finished dinner, this post is making me hungry ;P

  47. You were right – I should have grabbed a snack!

  48. I haven’t read any of these, but they do make me want to have what is on some of these covers!

  49. Awesome take on this weeks list! All of those look delicious. I love the The Pie and Pastry Bible and the Hello, Cupcake covers the best!

  51. Yummy! I wish I’d thought of that twist! Great list.

  52. Wow, so many of these food covers are making me hungry. Also, Hello Cupcake looks adorable!

  53. None of these covers makes me hungry. I don’t like them but the ‘Hello, cupcake’ one is cute but a little freaky. I don’t like eating animal shaped or animal-like desserts.

    Thank you for your visit to my blog, have a lovely day.

  54. Such a fun spin on this past week’s topic, Lydia. Love it; and you’re right! Some of these covers feature some pretty yummy (looking) and tempting things. Thanks so much for the visit to Finding Wonderland last week, I appreciate it. 🙂
