Guest Post: Author Anna Staniszewski’s Top Three Food-Centric Novels

Author Anna Staniszewski’s brand new book, The Prank List (the sequel to the absolutely hilarious Dirt Diary) comes out next month, and I’m excited that she took the time out of her busy  schedule to stop by to share a guest post with us. Take it away, Anna!

Top Three Food-Centric Novels by Anna Staniszewski

Since part of my newest book, The Prank List, takes place in a pastry class, I thought it would be fun to highlight a few other books that prominently feature food.


Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

This is an obvious one, but I couldn’t leave it off the list. Not only is this book hilarious, but it’s full of mouth-watering candy. I’m pretty sure I get a new cavity every time I reread it. (Indiebound link)

Everything on a Waffle by Polly Horvath

I love this heartwarming story full of quirky characters and unusual meals. Lasagna on a waffle? Why not? (Indiebound link)


The Truth About Twinkie Pie by Kat Yeh

I’m cheating a little by putting this one on the list since I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but I managed to snag an Advance Reading Copy (ARC) of this book at Book Expo America last week and it sounds wonderful–plus, it’s full of delicious recipes, including one for Twinkie Pie. (Indiebound link)

What are some of your favorite food-centric books?
