  1. ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY SEVEN RECIPES, how on earth is anyone that inspired by the books oh my gosh.

  2. The Perspicacious Bookworm

    Ooh I love this twist to it! My daughter has gotten really into American Girl recently so I’m going to have to check that one out. Thanks for the great list!

  3. These all sound wonderful!

  4. The Hobbit cookbook sounds interesting.

  5. What a wonderful list. I like to look at recipe books like this but rarely ever make any foods from them. I wonder if the Fairy Tale Foods book has the recipe for Turkish Delight, which is such an important treat from The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe?

  6. What a great list! I love recipes inspired by books and shows; the Hunger Games one sounds right up my alley.

  7. Looking up both the Oz and Fairy Tale books now!

  8. Nice list! I had to look up the cocktail one, even though I own five cocktail books already including a literary one, Tequila Mockingbird!

  9. a great list! The Hobbit cookbook, The American Girls Cookbook

    Eat This Poem: A Literary Feast of Recipes Inspired by Poetry are my fovourites.

    thank you!

  10. Wow! I had not idea there was a cookbook for the Hobbit! I’m for sure buying that immediately.

  11. Oh I love this twist! I think a cookbook based on The Hobbit would definitely be filled with lots of yummy goodness 🙂

  12. Wow. How fun is this?! You found ten wonderful literary cookbooks. I think I would choose Fairy Tale Desserts first.

  13. Great list! Definitely going to investigate the Hobbit one.

  14. Fun list! I do enjoy reading through novel-themed cookbooks, even if I’ve yet to actually cook any of the recipes.

  15. Great list! I’m very interested in Eat this Poem!

  16. The Unofficial Cookbook of the Hunger Games sounds like fun, but mostly I just want the Wonder Wizard of Oz Cookbook! Great list. 😀

  17. All of these sound delightful. Can someone deliver the food to me so I don’t have to make it myself? 😉

  18. Great list! Which recipes did you enjoy the most? Have to check out the Wonderland one!

  19. This is so cool!! I’m going to look up that Avonlea cookbook! Great post.

  20. I didn’t know cookbooks like this existed! Makes me more inclined to cook, lol. Great post!

  21. Ooh!! You have some cookbooks I need to add to my list! I did not know there was an Avonlea cookbook!! That is amazing 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  22. Some of these sound amazing. The drinks cookbook would be fun — I love fancy cocktails, even though I rarely have them. Fairy Tale Desserts and the American Girl cookbook both sound like books that would have been great to have when my daughter was little. Great list!

  23. Well I’m interested in Fairy Tale Desserts now, sounds great!

  24. Hobbit Cookery sounds pretty good! I like books inspired by stories with good food! 🙂

  25. My library has the Wizard of Oz cookbook – so cute!

  26. What a fun list of cookbooks!

    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday list.

  27. I love this! I think I’ve only ever owned one cookbook coz now I just follow random recipes I find online but I’ve been discovering SO MANY with this week’s prompt! So many unique titles and unique cuisines and dishes too 😍 Love it!

  28. Bev

    Great list. Haven’t tried any of these but several look interesting.

  29. Looks like we shared some of the same subject matter today–Hunger Games, Oz, Avonlea. Thanks for sharing this awesome books and for visiting my blog today.

  30. Great list! I love the sound of An Unexpected Cookbook.

  31. Lovely ideas. I’m getting hungry now. It reminds me that I gave one of my sons a Game of Thrones book. Will have to ask him whether he cooked anything from it, yet.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT earlier.

  32. Oooh, some of these sound so cool! I don’t ever read these kinds of cookbooks and make the actual recipes. I just like looking through them to see what people came up with for literary references. Great list! 🙂

  33. Aaaand now *I’m* hungry, so thanks for that. I didn’t realize Zora Neale Thurston wrote a cookbook! That’s so neat! I bet there are some delicious recipes in the Hobbit one, too!

  34. Where on earth did you find these? How clever and how absolutely perfect for this post!

    Love it!

  35. Loving the idea of cocktails based on Alice in Wonderland! I’ll be looking out for that book 🙂

  36. Oh, my girls loved making recipes out of the American Girls Cookbook. <3

  37. Oooooh I forgot the Hunger Games Cookbook existed! I wish I had it. XD And American Girl! Ah that brings back memories. <3 I recently went on Amazon and put like a collection of each American Girl's historical books on my wish list that I remember loving cuz I suddenly had the urge to reread them all. 😛 I think I owned the cookbook at one point but I don't anymore. :/ Now as an adult I wish I could recollect all of them for my own library and maybe pass on to my daughter one day if I ever have one.

  38. Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting! Your list of cookbooks is definitely mouthwatering! 🙂

    The Wonderful Wizard of Oz cookbook! I would definitely like to take a look at that one — and also, what a creative list this is!

  40. There’s an Avonlea cookbook?! How did I not know this! I was a huge Avonlea fan growing up. Does it have Marilla’s Raspberry Cordial in it?

  41. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Cookbook is such a fun oddity. I love that you included it!

  42. I had not yet seen the Wonderful Wizard of Oz cookbook. I’ll have to look it up.

  43. This is an awesome list! I’m definitely adding a few of these to my Christmas wishlist! 🙂

  44. I don’t remember having the cookbook, but I used to be SO into American Girl. I still like to browse a catalog from them now and again for nostalgia and still own all of the things I was gifted or bought from them over the years. 🙂 Thanks so much for the recent(ish!) visits to Finding Wonderland; my apologies for the delay in visiting here.
