Taste Test
by Kelly Fiore

Expected publication: August 27th 2013 by Walker Childrens

Blurb (Goodreads):
Nora Henderson has been basting baby back ribs for as long as she could reach the counter of her dad's famous barbecue joint. When she's accepted to Taste Test, a teen reality cooking competition, Nora can't wait to leave her humble hometown behind. On set, run-ins with the maddeningly handsome and talented son of a famous chef, Christian Van Lorten, make Nora wonder if it's him or the win she really wants, but as she and Christian emerge as front-runners for the final prize, Nora can't ignore the mysterious accidents plaguing the kitchen arena. Someone is conducting eliminations of their own, and if Nora doesn't stop them, she could be next to get "chopped" for good. 

With romance and intrigue as delectable as the winning recipes included in the story, this debut novel will be devoured by all.

I was browsing Goodreads for the upcoming releases--I realized I have no idea what titles are going to be released and has been recently released. I'm so left behind. *face palm*--and saw this. With all the books I'm reading now (dystopian and paranormal; not that I'm complaining), I'm craving for a light, fun and romantic contemporary read. And I think this one could be really delicious.

Any books you're hungrily waiting for? Share them with me on the comments!

  1. Acid looks awesome. I should put on my TBR list.

    1. It was! I loved it. Hope you read it soon and enjoy it! :)

  2. I hope you enjoyed Acid! Happy Reading!

  3. I don't know any of these books. That's what's so great about this meme. Thanks for the recommends.

  4. I have not heard of any of the books, but I will have to look out for them they sounds great. Plus I love novels that have recipes in them :D

  5. That taste Test book sounds so cute. I will be waiting for it! <3

  6. Okay, just by its cover I'm definitely going to check out Acid. It looks bad-arse. And OMG! Taste Test sounds like a riot. Will add that one to my tbr pile =)

  7. Ooh, Acid looks fabulous!

  8. Heh, fun cover! Would likely be a fun read, too. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog earlier!

  9. I love cooking contest shows, so this looks like it would be a really fun read. I added to my TBR list. I agree that sometimes when I read dystopian/paranormal all the time I need a little break and it's good to read something lighter. I'm reading Anna and the French Kiss right now for that very reason!

  10. I'm dying to get my hands on Phoenix and Siege and Storm. Acid looks fantastic!!
