What a great find. Thanks to my friend Susan for recommending this to me. I''m not sure if this is always a freebie on Kindle, but for now it's free and it's totally worth the download.

This book starts off with a foreword from author Amanda Hocking, and in it she discusses her appreciation for book bloggers and all that they do to help sell her books. I thought that was nice of her.

Then it moves on to the book reviews and each one posts a synopsis of a book followed by a short clip of a review.

Tie a recipe to a book, what a fabulous idea! I'm probably bias because I'm a book blogger but I absolutely love this book! Here certain books are featured. For each featured book, you'll see an image of the book, its blurb, brief reviews from few book bloggers, and a recipe correlating to the particular book. The food featured looks divine and the recipes seem simple and easy to follow. I especially enjoyed the foreword from Amanda Hocking. She gave a wonderful shout out to book bloggers and I ...more

Those who regularly visit my blog know that besides reading and travelling cooking and baking is my other passion. In my Sunday Treats on my blog I combine my love of reading with my love of desserts by sharing with you recipes of some of my favourite treats.

So when I heard that someone else did the same and even compiled a blogger's cookbook I was beyond excited and couldn't wait to see Christy Dorrity's selection. And it is wonderful!

The recipes are special and one of a kind enough to stand

The Book Blogger's Cookbook has the best combination of two of my favorite things: food and books. I was blown away at how Christy and her team organized a complimentary piece of work that left my mouth watering. For starters, it's a great honor to even be included in this blogger cookbook. For my entry I chose to comment on Lauren's Oliver debut, Before I Fall. I utterly adore everything about this novel, so when the 7-Day Layer Dip was chosen as its recipe, I knew it was the right counterpart. ...more

This is such a great idea taking books, book bloggers, and mouth watering recipes all in one book. All the recipes went really well with the books. They all had descriptions why that certain food was chosen and it just made sense. "The 7-Day Layer Dip" for Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall went perfectly with the story. With each recipe there was also excerpts of bloggers reviews of that certain novel. It was a nice touch, to an already great book.

Recipes: This is my first review over a cookbook, so I decided to split the review into three sections: recipes, cover, and overall rating. First off, I have to say I was a little curious about this because it put book blogger and cookbook into the same title. I wondered how Dorrity would be able to combine the two. I was happily surprised to see that she took elements of well known books and turned them into recipes. Some of the books included were Wings, Shiver, Mockingjay, Before I Fall, and ...more

We’ve all done it. Somewhere on your bookshelf—and mine—there is that one book that you devoured in one giant gulp. The book that fulfilled you body and soul. The book you just had to read out loud because the words tasted so good on your tongue.

You might not suspect it but The 2011 Book Blogger’s Cookbook is such a book. It’s a beautiful blend of a cookbook about books. It’s worth reading straight through if only to find new books to add to your “to-read” shelf. It’s worth savoring page by page
Jul 15, 2011 Tristi rated it really liked it
What do books and food and blogging have in common? Well, Tristi, of course! And so what better place to find a review of The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook than here? There are other sites reviewing it, and doing a mighty fine job of it, and I think it makes total sense that I should be included on that list. Seriously, my middle name is BooksandBlogsandFood. But it was hard to fit on a birth certificate, so my mom decided to cut her losses and use Paige instead.

But I digress.

What's better than a tasty treat and a great book? Nothing tat I can think of. Exceptmay adding some hot chocolate to the mix! This cookbook not only gave me ideas for a special snack/book themed reading session, but also brought new books to my attention. I personally enjoyed the Frozen Hot Chocolate that went with the book Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater! Shiver is one of my favorite books and I loved that I now have a special drink to go with it and it works in summer or winter. I found out about ...more

I finished The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook (The Book Blogger's Cookbook) by Christy Dorrity. This book has the strangest concept I've ever heard of. Each chapter in the book introduces a book with a short snippet of a book's plot, has a recipe developed by the main book's author and then has segments of blogs that yet other people have written about the book (i.e. Mockingjay..see brief plot synopsis, see recipe inspired by Mockinjay developed by Christy Dorrity..see partial reviews/comments fro ...more

Thoroughly ordinary and uninspired recipes the sorts of things everyone already knows how to cook "inspired" by scenes from various books, along with pitches for the books. A soggy mess.
Jul 14, 2011 Josi rated it it was amazing
This cookbook was inspired by several wonderful books and how a handful of book bloggers matched them up with recipes. I had never had an e-cookbook and worried about the format being easy to use on my Kindle--well it's a whole lot easier than a cookbook that keeps flipping closed :-) and though I haven't made all the recipes yet, the ones I've tried are great. I found it easy to navigate and understand and just a really fun book. I was also lucky enough to have my book, Lemon Tart, features as ...more

Great books, bloggers, and recipes meet in this fresh and unique cookbook that helps you experience books, not just read them. Books were selected from the authors book review blog and paired with delectable recipes
Jun 08, 2013 Ruthie rated it liked it
I always enjoy running across recipes in novels. I never actually use the recipes, but I like knowing I could if I wanted to. Putting together a book of novel-inspired recipes is a fun idea. I've read several of the books mentioned, and I discovered a few new books to add to my to-read list. And I bookmarked a few recipes that I'd like to try. First on the list: TimeStopping Chocolate Truffles! (Supposed to be simple enough for your children to make.)

This book made me hungry. My brain wanted to devour all the books reviewed, and my mouth wanted to taste all the recipes featured. I can't wait to get cooking--and reading!
