Bite-Sized Magic (The Bliss Bakery #3)

4.1  ·  Rating Details ·  1,127 Ratings  ·  125 Reviews
This third book in Kathryn Littlewood's acclaimed Bliss trilogy mixes the down-home heart-punch of Ingrid Law's Newbery Honor Book Savvy, the always-on-the-edge-of-chaos comedy of Cheaper by the Dozen, and a humorous magic all its own to create a thoroughly original confection, a delicious guilty pleasure for readers of all ages.

Rose won back her family's magical Cookery B

Actual Rating: 2.5 stars

After receiving book three unsolicited, I decided to power through this middle grade series if I liked it well enough. Though I probably wouldn’t have picked it up on my own, I definitely do not begrudge the time that I spent hanging out with Rosemary Bliss. Like most middle grade, I think it’s probably only going to truly shine for young readers, but it was still enjoyable for me as an adult, or at least I play one in my daily life.

The only problem with the Bliss series is that every time I read one of the books, I have an uncontrollable urge to eat cake. And cookies. Or any other baked dessert.

This is the third installment of the Bliss series, and I sincerely hope that it won't be the last! The ending left me hopeful that there will be more books. Although Bite-Sized Magic is part of a series, it can be read on its own. In this book, Rose is abducted by a sinister man looking to take over the world through the use of evil

The one and only thing wrong with this book is it gave me the uncontrollable urge to eat something sweet.
It was REALLY good! New unforgettable characters and unique recipes are introduced in this story. There is a new thrilling plot, as a new matter that once again brings the world's fate into the hands of Rosemary Bliss. You will be on the edge of you seats on the newest amazing book of the Bliss series. I hope it won't be the last!

Brilliant book to round out the series. I love the La Cage Aux Folles conflict toward the end. Thoroughly enjoyable and a solid critique of the food industrial complex.

Rosemary Bliss menjadi pemenang termuda kontes Gâteaux Grands dan mendapatkan kembali buku resep rahasia milik keluarganya. Selain mendapatkan buku resep, ia juga mendapatkan ketenaran yang membuatnya tidak nyaman.

"Bagi Rosemary Bliss, ketenaran bukan adonan sembarangan."

Namun, keluarnya peraturan pemerintah yang mengharuskan pengusaha dengan jumlah karyawan kurang dari seribu berhenti beroperasi, membuat keluarga Bliss harus menghentikan pembuatan kue. Hingga akhirnya sebuah ide muncul untuk m

This was my least favorite of the 3 Bliss novels. Though I still thoroughly enjoy the characters and Littlewood's writing style, this plot seemed way out of left field.

While I am all for encouraging young people to avoid preservative laden, processed foods, this tale was over the top with the evil "Mostess Snack Company" and poorly connected to the first 2 stories of the series. Several elements made no sense based on what we know from the previous books. (view spoiler)

It is with a sense of relief that I finish this series...though the author did, of course, put in a tiny little ominous bit from semi-evil Aunt Lily to hang over the ending just as a way to leave the series open. Aunt Lily seriously needs to be MORE; she either needs to commit to being all evil or coming around to loving the family and leaving the bad guys. This wishy-washy non-bad guy that she is really doesn't move me. Bad guys need to be BAD.

Finally got to see Rose work with her brothers here

Este libro definitivamente no funciono conmigo. La saga en sí se me hizo aburrida, pero especialmente este ultimo libro el cual tuve que obligarme a leer por las ultimas dos semanas.
No le doy una estrella por que esa me la suelo reservar para las aberraciones que nunca debí leer.

Lo bueno:
Los personajes están bien descritos.

Lo malo:
Las situaciones se resuelven ridículamente sencillas.
El libro es un conjunto de instrucciones que se repiten ciclicamente.

I loved the Bliss trilogy especially the last book. Bite-Sized Magic of course stressed the importance of family love. During the third book, Rose has learned so much about her family magic and her own gift. She goes through many difficult choices and a dangerous time. But in the end, she is rewarded with her birthday wishes and the love of her family. Not to mention Rose saved the world, AGAIN. I loved these books and recommend
to anyone who loves a cute and clever story line. Bliss series!!

Interesting fantasy book full of adventures. Kids love it, at least mine do. Even I have read it, and must admit it can enjoyable even by adults. Funny thing is that the author of the book that regularly comes to my Zomick's bakery trade it for weekly supply of a olive challah bread!!!

Lagi2 saat membaca buku ini saya membayangkan suasana dalam buku 1984 di mana berbagai bentuk "teror" bagi sebagian penduduknya lahir dari inisiatif penguasa. Ini bagai gambaran yg akan terjadi bila Rose Bliss gagal mematahkan ambisi pabrik roti Mostess dgn produk2 kue beracun andalannya.

Ada kue Moony Pye yg empuk, padat, lunak, lezat dan akan menjadikan pemakannya terjerat dalam "bentuk perbudakan paling istimewa yang pernah ada."
Ada juga Glo-Ball yang menjijikan rasanya tapi tampil cemerlang

It seems I made mistake by started reading this book long before having the earlier two. By the time I read the third page, I put the book down for other more interesting read. Now I returned after reading the earlier ones, I found this book was just as fun as the others. Ruling the world through mass-produced snack? Why not? :) Still, I think the 2nd book exceeded this 3rd. Some things in this story felt like forced to exist; 5 evil snacks that got about same amount of evilness, the easy captiv ...more

I thought this book was okay. I didn't like this book as much as the other two because nothing SUPER exiting really happened compared to the other books. I just didn't have as much fun reading this book as the others. And It felt like the author ran out of ideas so it got more and more boring.

Sebenarnya sih untuk ceritanya cuma 3 bintang, tapi covernya yang cantik dan sisi halamannya yang sparkling blue selalu jadi alasan saya untuk memberi bonus 1 bintang :D

Sayang, untuk buku ketiga ini, sisi halaman sparkling blue-nya memudar karena bukunya selalu saya bawa saat pergi ke kantor, berharap dapat mencuri-curi waktu untuk membaca saat bos tidak melihat.*eh*.

It's safe to say that this series is the most read in our house. It would have been edged out by anything Laura Ingalls Wilder but the compelling blend of magic and baking have pushed aside our passion for all things pioneer (it still comes back in to favour when people are feeling unwell, it seems there is nothing as comforting as Ma, Pa, Laura, Mary and Carrie). Anyway Kathryn Littlewood returns us to the world of the Bliss Family Bakery and somehow comes up with an idea that is crazy and beli ...more

Bite-Sized Magic by Kathryn Littlewood was one thing—ridiculous. The storyline sounded good: Rosemary Bliss, now a famous baker who uses her family’s magic book to create magical treats, is kidnapped and forced to use magic to create evil treats for the wicked Mr. Butter.

The story didn’t live up to my expectations at all. It was unrealistic, pathetic, and unrealistic. I couldn’t connect with any of the characters. However, the lack of good story left me laughing and wishing for more. So if noth
