Here are our top ten suggestions of what snacks to eat with some of our favourite YA novels.
 

SIX OF CROWS – WAFFLES

You may think that the most fitting reward for pulling off the impossible heist would be something along the lines of fame and fortune. Nope. Our daring thieves have promised each other waffles, and that sounds like the perfect reward to us.

Failing that, the always-hungry Nina LOVES cake and toffees so you could grab yourself some of those because you’re going to be thinking about them. A LOT.

THE DARKEST PART OF THE FOREST – FAIRY FLOSS

Because faeries. Duh.

And if you can’t find fairy floss, some good old-fashioned fairy bread will totally do the trick.

BREATHING UNDER WATER – MEAT PIES

A staple of Grace’s childhood – what’s a more Australian snack than a good old meat pie smothered in tomato sauce? Food is a big part of this contemporary Australian novel, and we recommend you prepare yourself because you’re going to get incredibly hungry. If it’s not a meat pie, find yourself some delicious dips and bread just like Harley brings over. (Swoon.)

RED QUEEN – RED VELVET CUPCAKES

In honour of Red Bloods everywhere. Unless you’re Team Silver Blood. In that case, we have no suggestions for you. In fact, you should probably excuse yourself right now. Rise, Red as the Dawn!

TWILIGHT – A JUICY RED APPLE

The Forbidden Fruit… or in this case, a healthy snack – because it can’t always be sugar and rainbows. Plus, the apple has a very complex history. It’s all about knowledge and power. Don’t believe us – see what the Vampire Queen herself had to say here [http://stepheniemeyer.com/the-books/twilight/twilight-faq/#apple].

EMBRACE – CHICKEN, LEMON, FETA AND BASIL PASTA

Firstly, pasta is delicious. And secondly, we can eat it and pretend a guy like Lincoln made it for us. Handsome, powerful, super romantic Lincoln who cooks Violet a delicious pasta dish in just about every book in this series. Yep, we’d settle for a guy like that. Until then, we’ll just read Embrace and make our own damn pasta. With extra basil, just how Violet likes it.

CARAVAL – BURNT SUGAR CIDER

We’re not quite sure what this is or where to get it but if you can get your hands on some, you’ll get to experience Caraval with all your senses.

ELEANOR AND PARK – POTATO GEM PIE

Okay, so we’ve Australianised the name of this dish from the amazing Eleanor and Park so you don’t go on a wild goose chase at your local supermarket. It’s strictly a ‘Tater Tot Casserole’ and it’s something that Eleanor eats with Park’s family which warms our hearts as much as this dish warms our bellies. We were pretty excited to see that a bunch of bloggers have posted their recipes in honour of our beloved Eleanor and Park, like this one here [http://www.yesandyes.org/2016/03/recipe-from-eleanor-park.html].

If you can’t be bothered making your own pie (less cooking, more reading), perhaps your mum has a can of beans from 1986 buried somewhere in the back of her pantry?

THE MEMORY BOOK – CHOCOLATE. ALL THE CHOCOLATE YOU CAN FIND.

Trust us, you’ll need it. That and a big box of tissues.

MOSQUITOLAND – CHIPS

Because according to Mim, chips are the ultimate road trip food. Grab yourself a giant bag of potato chips and brace yourself to take a ride with Mim in this cross-country road trip novel that will keep you turning pages long after you’ve finished crunching.

TRUE COLOUR OF FOREVER – ICE CREAM

Sadie’s father has the coolest job: he drives an ice cream truck! We think that makes this the perfect snack for this book.

(Bonus: the US edition features five different ice creams on its cover. Extra proof that this is the snack for Carrie Firestone’s novel!)

 

STALKING JACK THE RIPPER – BLOOD ORANGE SLICES

With a book full of bloody murders and dead bodies, we think it’s only fair that this snack is also full of blood – and why not be a little bit healthy on the side too?

MOXIE – MAGIC SQUARES

We had to do a bit of digging to find out what Magic Squares are (they’re a chewy bar), but we couldn’t pass up these delicious treats. Moxie star, Viv, makes Magic Squares as her contribution to the Moxie Bake Sale raising money for the under-funded girls’ soccer team. Moxie Girls Fight Back!

NIGHT OF CAKES AND PUPPETS – CAKE!

We don’t have a particular cake in mind, but you can’t go wrong with a bit of cake, right? Sit back, kick up your feet and enjoy Zuzanna’s epic scavenger hunt (which also involves a bit of cake).

FROSTBLOOD – FRAPPE

Pick your fave flavour and experience a bit of the Frostblood way of life with a chillingly cold frappe (just be careful not to go too hard, too fast – we don’t want any brain freezing going on). You can also get a taste of the Fireblood side of the series the icy drink melts. You can pretend you did it with your super-hot powers.

WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI – ICED COFFEE

Preferably from Starbucks, just like the one Dimple threw all over Rishi. We advise drinking yours though. And if you need something else to tide you over, grab a box of Pocky – Rishi’s favourite snack!

I got my first taste of heart filled books as a YA blogger, before settling down in the Product department of Hachette Australia. I tend to read mostly Young Adult, Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance novels – but I’m open to anything with a good hook! My ideal weekend is sitting back with a cup of tea, a new book and a few hours of uninterrupted reading time.
