2017 Reading Challenge: Foodies Read 2017


I’m glad that I found this Foodies Read Challenge for my 2017 reading adventures!

We all know I love reading cozy mysteries and some of my absolute favorites are those that are food based such as coffee shops, tea shops, spice shops, bakeries, cafes, and the list could go on and on and on . . .

For this challenge I am putting it all out there and going with the level of CORDON-BLEU CHEF More than 19 books!!

Looking forward to this one.

And remember,

Books Are Life,

Foodies Read Challenge 2014


Welcome to the 2014 edition of Foodies Read! 

If you are new to a food/reading challenge, you may be wondering – what is a “food book”? A food book is a book which is centered around food and/or drinks. That could be a cookbook, a food biography or memoir, a non-fiction book focused around a specific food, wine, chef or restaurant, or a fictional story in which food plays a major role.
Here’s how the challenge works:

1. Decide how many food books you want to read in 2014.  Pick one of the reading levels below:


Short-Order Cook: 1 to 3 books

Pastry Chef: 4 to 8 books

Sous-Chef: 9 to 13 books

Chef de Cuisine: 14 to 18

Cordon-Bleu Chef: More than 19
2. Grab the challenge button and write a post on your blog so we can spread the word. If you want, you can also add the button to your sidebar to help get the word out that the challenge is a go for 2014. Want to join but don’t have a blog? That’s fine, just post a comment below in the comments section saying so, and then post your reviews in the comment section of the corresponding tab at the top of the blog under the header.

3. After you read each book for the challenge, come back here and tell us about it. Click on the correct category for your book on the menu bar, and post the link to your review. We’ll use the same categories as last year: Cookbooks, Memoirs/Biographies, Fiction, and Nonfiction. There’s also a tab for you to link up your Challenge Wrap-Up post.


The challenge runs from January 1 through December 31, 2014.
You don’t need a pre-selected list of books.
It’s okay to cross over with other challenges.
Any book format is allowed (print, audio, ebook)


Well with all of the food and drink themed cozy mysteries I have to catch up on in 2014, I’m jumping right on board with the level:

Cordon-Bleu Chef: More than 19

Here we go,
