Wanted: Cookbooks Focused on Sweets

Craving something sweet like cookies, I headed to my bookshelf to see what new recipe I could find that used one stick of softened butter (which I had wisely pulled out a bit earlier) and preferably, chocolate.

Yes, there are go-to recipes in my repertoire that fit that bill, but I was looking for something new.

And then it hit me. I have many more cookbooks that focus on meals than ones that focus on just desserts. (As you can see from the picture.)

Something's gotta give.

Here's where I'd like to ask for your suggestions. What cookbooks do you use that focus on baked goods and why do you like them?

Please help!

P.S. I found a recipe for a cake that uses butter and chocolate and it's currently in the oven. If it's good ( can it not be?) I'll post the recipe later.
