July Cupcake Book Club

This month’s book is Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquirel. The book is set in Mexico and follows the all female De La Graza family and the youngest daughter who is forbidden from marrying. She falls in love with Pedro who is seduced by the food she cooks. Buy the book on Amazon UK paperback and Kindle, US Paperback and US Kindle.

Refresher to those that want to join in this month. The concept is simple. Each month I’ll chose a novel with a cupcake (or baking/food theme) and post my review here. In addition, I’m going to bake something delicious inspired by the book.

I would also like to invite everyone to read, discuss and bake along with me. I also want to share! I’ll post a round up of any entries I receive. There are only a few loose guidelines stated below.

1. Make a good faith effort to start reading the chosen novel
2. Bake (or create) anything inspired by the chosen novel
3. Link to this post. Feel free to use the book club logo.
3. Email me your name, link to your blog post (if you have a blog) and photo (1MB or less in size) of your creation, where you’re from, and 1-2 sentences of what you thought of the book or what in the book inspired your creation by the stated deadline.
4. No spoilers please

Start reading now and join the discussion (#cupcakebookclub,  facebook, or comments on this post)! Send your inspired treat to me by August 22nd and I’ll write a blog post featuring all submissions.

  1. I do not have the spare time to wait in for the postman, and the depo is MILES away. However I have found out that Waterstones stock it too, if anyone is struggling. Hurrah, Waterstones on my way home!

    Looking forward to reading this.
