Great books, bloggers, and recipes meet in this second volume of a fresh and unique cookbook that helps you experience books, not just read them. This year's volume features even more tasty reads, recipes and book bloggers.

Books were selected from the author’s book review blog and paired with delectable recipes like “Caramel Crack” from Shatter Me, by Tahereh Mafi, "Everliving Soup" from Brodi Ashton's Everneath, and "Jagged Ham" from Elana Johnson's Possession.
Mouthwatering photos complement every recipe.

The 2012 Book Blogger’s Cookbook includes a foreword by David Farland, award winning, New York Times Bestselling author, and showcases more than one hundred reviews with links to book review blogs and author websites.

Whether you're a food lover, an avid reader or a book blogger, there’s something for you in The 2011 Book Blogger’s Cookbook.

I’ve had the honor of reviewing this book for a second year and it’s as good as before.

I love how there are recipes to go with each book, not necessarily from the book like there in many cozy mysteries. The recipes tie in to the location of the book or a place that is visited in the book.

Plus I always find new books to be added to my TBR list. Here I a few I plan to add this year

- I’ll be adding Gypsy Knights by Rhett and Lafe Metz it doesn’t hurt that the recipe that goes with it sounds wonderful – Beignet Chess Squares

- I’ll be Adding Back When You Were Easier to love by Emily Wing Smith this looks like a nice contemporary YA

- Janitors by Tyler Whitesides looks like a fun book that takes place at school where the janitors have a secret.

- Courting Miss Lancaster by Sarah M Eden sounds like a wonderful period piece and a very English recipe of Chocolate Violet Creams to go with it.

My only regret is that this doesn’t come in print format for the recipes that I would love to try Carmel Crack and Rosemary, Sea Salt and Crème Fraiche Croissants. I’m not ready to take my iPad into the kitchen yet.

Thank you once again for coming up with a wonderful recipe for books and food combined. Looking forward to next year’s addition already

I highly recommend that you check it out on Amazon you will be able to find last year's edition also. Happy reading and cooking always a great combination.
