As usual, it took Zoe no time at all to pick her dessert, because she always chooses snickerdoodles and knows the ingredients by heart.
Starting Your Own Business for Dummies was on top.
“That doesn’t mean I think you’re stupid or anything, you know,” Josh said as he handed me the books.
“Yeah, I know,” I said, though I liked that he was the kind of person who’d check to make sure.

Books about food are some of my favorites. I blame being raised on Food Network, but, let’s be honest, you don’t have to know how to proof dough, mix up icing, or candy lemon peels to enjoy a story about sweets.
Here are a few books that revolve around sweet treats that you should definitely check out:
- Baker’s Magic by Diane Zahler
- Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
- A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
- The Doughnut Fix by Jessie Janowitz

The Doughnut Fix by Jessie Janowitz
When Tristan’s family moves from New York to the middle-of-nowhere town of Petersville, it seems as though everything’s changing for the worse. Their new house is haunted, there are no restaurants, and there’s nothing to do until school starts. But when Tristan stumbles across rumors of the town’s famous life-changing doughnuts, he believes he’s found a way to make a change for the better. All he has to do is earn the recipe.
But this problem, the doughnut problem, wasn’t made-up, and if I messed up this time, I’d be messing up something real.
