Snacking and reading go hand-in-hand, and at this time of year my absolute favorite snack is a Girl Scout cookie. I’m partial to Thin Mints, S’mores, and Tagalongs myself—but honestly you can’t go wrong with any of these yummy cookies. National Girl Scout Day is March 12, and I’m celebrating by combining two of my favorite things: pairing their delicious cookies with some of my favorite romances.
Girl Scout S’mores
The Pursuit Of… by Courtney Milan
Across a 500-mile journey, John and Henry camp out and often only have really terrible cheese to eat for dinner. Though they eventually grow accustomed to it, I think they’re deserving of a much sweeter treat for their next campfire meal!
Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs
The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai
I love the salty and sweet combo of peanut butter and chocolate. This pairing can also be seen in Alisha Rai’s The Right Swipe where Rhi is still salty after being ghosted by Samson, whose wholesome sweetness slowly starts to win her over.
How the Dukes Stole Christmas by Tessa Dare, Sarah MacLean, Sophie Jordan, Joanna Shupe
Every story in this charming holiday anthology is linked by a magical shortbread recipe that promises love to those who eat it. In the book, the cookies are hilariously bad, but these Girl Scout ones are sure to please!
