Desserts and books are arguably two of life’s greatest pleasures. Everybody seems to have a soft spot for desserts to a certain extent, whether you have a big sweet tooth or you’re more of a “special occasion” kind of person – who can resist a little bit of sweet?

To match your favorite dessert, here’s a book that will pair well with it. Enjoy!

Ice cream

Ice cream is a frozen treat that never gets old. Although we traditionally indulge during the heat of the summer months, it’s really one of those desserts that can be enjoyed at any time during any season. If ice cream is your favorite dessert, grab a pint of your favorite flavor and indulge while reading Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison. Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man is perfect for anyone who loves ice cream because just like ice cream, it never gets old. You can read this book over and over and find something new each time you read.

Books with twists and turns are exhilarating – they keep the pages turning while keeping you on your toes. Here’s one to enjoy with your chocolate lava cake! Gone for Good by Harlan Coben is perfect for you if you love a book that keeps you guessing.
