2015 Foodies Read Reading Challenge

I love this challenge.  I mostly love culinary cozy mysteries, but I love to read other genres dealing with food too.  So, I'm joining this one again...  It's hosted by Vicki from I'd Rather Be At the Beach.

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 on for 2015.

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, 2015.
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)

I'm going for the Pastry Chef level (4-8 books).  I'll try for 8 and list them here...

1. Fry Another Day by J.J. Cook (Click here for review.)

  1. Yeah! I love that you're joining again!!

  2. I love foody books! I should join in on this.

  3. I didn't get as much read for this challenge as I expected in 2014, but I have high hopes for next year!
