Classic Buttermilk Pancakes: Forking Good by Valya Dudycz Lupescu & Stephen H Segal

Fans of The Good Place will adore Forking Good, a book that combines recipes inspired by the show with philosophical concepts, so that you can eat like Eleanor and feel like you are being taught by Chidi. The recipes are also named after philosophers, so treat yourself to some "I Kant Believe It’s Not Buttermilk Pancakes" while reading all about the ethics that make the world go round.

Crepes With Lemon And Sugar: I Heart Paris by Lindsey Kelk

For something light, sweet, and typically French, pair some lemon and sugar crepes with this sweet little chick-lit novel by Lindsey Kelk. The third in her I Heart series, I Heart Paris takes Angela to the city of love to write for a fashion magazine (and enjoy a little extra romance with her man). Fans of the series will love this next adventure, but for those who have yet to meet Angela, I Heart Paris is a fun read to dive into…just like a plate of sweet, lemony crepes.

Peach & Bacon Pancakes: Southern Book Club’s Guide To Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix

Peach and bacon might be a surprising combo, but make peachy pancakes with bacon on the side, and you will be surprised by just how well they go together. And of course, when it comes to decadent sweet food with a peachy twist, the best book is one that transports you straight to the south: The Southern Book Club’s Guide To Slaying Vampires. This ‘90s-set supernatural thriller is the perfect page turner for something sweet.

Low-Carb Pancakes: Much Ado About Mean Girls by Ian Doescher

Think you have to give up pancakes just because you’ve given up carbs? Think again! There are so many recipes that range from eggs and bananas to almond flour or pure keto options, and that just seems like a perfect excuse to keep eating until you find the perfect one! And what better to read while experimenting than Much Ado About Mean Girls, a Shakespearean twist on the classic comedy that asked the ultimate question: is butter a carb?

Potato Pancakes: Voices From Chernobyl by Svetlana Alexievich

Finally, we’ve got a pancake and book offering that is completely different: potato pancakes and Voices From Chernobyl. This classic Russian pancake isn’t the sweet and fluffy breakfast that you might be expecting, but they are delicious (especially with a little sour cream) and definitely worth trying. Similarly, Voices From Chernobyl is not a sweet or light read, but this collection of stories, testimonies, and poems from survivors of the disaster is an incredible book (and while it may not be light, there are moments of human connection and kindness here sweeter than syrup).
