A Pizza Made of Books

Slice Harvester

Slice Harvester: A Memoir in Pizza

By: Colin Atrophy Hagendorf

So I finally read Slice Harvester for Non-Fic November. It’s been on my TBR since it came out so I was pretty proud of myself.

Though in all honest I have mixed feelings on the book. Only the pizza in New York stuff interests me- and it was impressive the way he could write about pizza. If you are also interested in the punk scene go for it. Otherwise I thought I’d build my perfect pizza via books.

Crust: I like my base thick perfectly cooked but just a little burnt around the edges. So a book or series that burnt me…
a court of thorns and roses burned me

It’s not that I didn’t overall enjoy this series while reading. It’s just that the big end in A Court of Wings and Ruin or War and Ruin, whatever, was such a cop-out! I’ve honestly liked it less the further I’ve gotten away from reading it.

Although I have to admit if Martin doesn’t finish I’m going to consider ASOIAF a burn as well.

Sauce: Well-proportioned. I like my sauce not to overpower things but at the same time to have spice and a kick. So a book that was just the perfect amount saucy…

I’m not that big into romance books but I did enjoy this one and all things considered since they were both so damned precious and adorable I occasionally wanted to vomit… we did get some nice and saucy scenes!

Cheese: Just the right amount. (I have a pattern with pizza apparently- I like everything to be the “right” amount.) But I hate too much cheese. So a character that was just the right amount of cheesy for me…
Thorne forever!

Carswell Thorne and his relationship with Cress were the perfect amount of cheesy for me.

Meat: Vegetarian Pepperoni. Which I mean except for the vegetarian part is seemingly a pizza classic and pizza is an all occasion kind of food. So a classic for all occasions…

anne of green gables

Anne of Green Gables is a classic I read for the first time this year and absolutely loved it. I also imagine Anne would enjoy a pizza every now and again!

Sidekicks: Onions and Jalapeno Peppers. Literally my favorite thing on a pizza- okay, I put onion and peppers on everything so there’s that. But a book in which the supporting characters stole the show…
muse of nightmares

Other than the fact that he liked books I was never big on Lazlo or his and Sarai’s romance to be honest. But I adored Minya throughout the series and actually I can’t think of a supporting character in this book I didn’t like. I’d also so with The Raven Cycle for this answer.

Best Served Cold:  I prefer my pizza cold actually. Like the next morning on the way out the door. It’s a very portable breakfast. So a good book to take on a commute…

the humans

The Humans by Matt Haig. It’s a great little read with a very uplifting message and not one that takes a while. I’d also add Nikita Gills poems and prose books Wild Embers and Fierce Fairytales. Both will put you in the mood to face the day!

A Nice Cold Drink: Pizza is like the only time I will have soda. Shirley Temples are my favorite drink with pizza (so edgy right?) So a character or characters I’d love to have a drink with…

I Hate Fairyland Sadly Never After
Gert needs a drink.

There are several characters I’d have a drink with to be honest films and movies. But who wouldn’t enjoy a Shirley Temple with the over-sugared adult trapped in a child’s body psychopath known as Gert? After so long in Fairyland she’d also probably really enjoy a pizza.

  1. Love your book-pizza! 😀 Haha. Fun post 🙂
    Anne of Green Gables is defo a classic staple. Also, the fact that it’s a veggie pepperoni makes perfect sense. Anne is such an innocent character <3

  2. haha I love this idea!! I really agree with you about the ending of ACOWAR being a big cop out as an ending. I was so disappointed! Ahh Carswell Thorne and Cress were the right amount of cheese for me too! Anne of Green Gables is a great classic 😀 Humans sounds so good as well 🙂 Really awesome list!

  3. I am so happy you love Josh & Hazel’s Guide skldjfksl,,,,it brings so much joy to my very soulllll

    also, I’m currently reading Strange the Dreamer and so far I really love Lazlo because he is so nerdy and wholesome???? but i’m not even on page 100 though so I hope he stays adorable

    I love this entire post sm

    1. I read that after seeing your post on Josh and Hazel and then all I couldn’t think in my mind was Emilia Clarke for Hazel! I think she’s best in comedies anyway. And I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Strange and Lazlo!

  4. “I’ve honestly liked it less the further I’ve gotten away from reading it.” – my thoughts exactly on that particular Maas’ series. I still haven’t finished book 3 and honestly, I don’t think I even want to. It was so boring, I am more than half way though but always read a few pages and just have to stop. Dunno, not my thing I guess.

    I am still on the fence with Strange the Dreamer – it has so many great reviews but I really struggled with the Daughter of Smoke & Bone series and gave up on it somewhere during book 2. Hmmm… I am undecided yet. My curiosity may win though.

    Fun post! I like my pizza thin crust with olives and lots of Parmesan cheese. 🙂

    1. Yeah, the third book especially the ending was such a let down. Daughter of Smoke and Bone was a bit of a struggle at times. The love story got on my nerves Strange but I do think it did a better job of dealing with bigger issues and myths. I definitely liked the latest most!

  5. I don’t think I will ever come across anyone who didn’t enjoy Anne of Green Gables, that book is so all-round wholesome! I have a feeling there’ll be a lot of spoilers in Winds of Winter that will spoil the final season, so I think we can expect it after the show has reached its conclusion.
