My first book for the challenge is done :-) I read Fruits Basket, vol. 5 for it. The review will post on January 11th, though. I didn't want to toss it in the middle of all the Bloggiesta stuff.

I finished reading The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck and enjoyed it.

Ugh! I misspelled Orange ;-( Can you fix that? It will haunt me.

I offer kudos to a link from the video of Books of Wonder with FAITHFUL author Janet Fox, for this challenge.
Mine will be picture books - they are my passion.

I hope that's a legit fit?

Many thanks,

James and the Giant Peach was a re-read of a childhood favorite.

I love my book for this challenge. It's a perfect 5 star book.

I just finished reading my FOOD title: The Land of Mango Sunsets by Dorothea Benton Frank. She is a phenomenal southern writer recently recommended to me. This is a great "coming of age" story in one's later life and a touching mother/daughter story!

Clementine is kind of like Junie B. Jones. Clementine gets into a LOT of trouble. She's a girl whose best friend is not the brightest kid. They get into a big fight, and they have to work it out. This is a really good book, it made me laugh!

I loved reading the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. It was such a whimsical and fun read.

I just finished The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender, but I haven't reviewed it yet. It was my last book to complete the challenge!

A book with food in the title from reader,
jan godown annino
THE CROWS OF PEARBLOSSOM by Aldous Huxley & illustrated by Barbara Cooney

A bit hard to find. Try an interlibrary loan. Mine is from a library book sale.
Mrs. Crow gives Mr. Crow what-for when she discovers she can't even go for groceries, without the neighborhood egg-eater (a snake) snatching her pre-hatched babies, whom Mr. Crow should be guarding.
Pearblossom (Pear is the food item, ok?) is the community where the avian couple livem in a cottonwood tree.
The illustrations are a delight. And one of my minor passions in collecting children's picture books is finding celebrity written ones from ages back. It didn't start with Madonna.
enjoy!
(ps i'm not completing this for the prize so don't put my name in the pot...)

It is great to mention MOON SOUP by Lisa Desimin for this "food in the title" category.
This picture book (all mine are picture books) is by an author who is also a fabulous illustrator.
In MOON SOUP, the simmering concoction on the stove is heavenly with ingredients that include 1 aunset & a dance or 2. Try the recipe!
It's especially fun to read this by the light of a full moon.
