Books with Fruits & Veggies in the Title

One of the PopSugar Reading Challenge prompts this year is “a book with a fruit or vegetable in the title.” As an English major, I of course think immediately of A Clockwork Orange and Grapes of Wrath, but there are SO many fruits and vegetables out there and I know not everyone loves the classics, so if you’re struggling with your PopSugar Reading Challenge for 2018, check out some of these options! A lot of them are cozy mysteries, but there is also a good group of literary fiction and other genres throughout!

  1. I loved the House on Mango Street 🙂 There’s another book called Cherry, one of Mary Karr’s memoirs, it’s also really good! The Onion Field has been on my TBR forever. I’ve avoided challenges aside from the goodreads annual challenge but this is such a fun idea 🙂 great list!
