Review: Bittersweet

Title: Bittersweet
Author: Sarah Ockler
Format: Hardback
Pages: 378
Date(s) Read:  July 24, 2015
Rating: 5


Hudson, at one point in her life, knew exactly what her future looked like.  However, Hudson doesn't believe in second chances.  She bakes cupcakes, stays under the radar.  Then there is mixed signals guy who begins giving Hudson hope.  Eventually she has to make a decision on if it is worth going after what she wants and risking getting burned again. 


Okay, fair warning, this book will speak to your sweettooth with the cute cupcake recipes at the top of each chapter.  I really liked some of them, never actually made it a point to write them down (though I really, really should have!) 

This book is cute.  However, it is so much more than a cute story.  There is cute story of course.  There is also Hudson realizing things about her family, her future and ultimately herself.  There were times when Hudson annoyed the crap out of me, but then again I did realize that this is her story and she's developing further and realizing stuff...but there were times when she seriously rubbed me the wrong way with some of the stupid things she did at the beginning of the book. 

Despite Hudson occasionally driving me crazy, the rest of the cast of characters definitely helped make the book more enjoyable and ensured that it was a very good read.  I enjoyed it, and it really makes me wish I had the skills (or more so the supplies and the room) to bake a lot more than I do!   

Consider yourself warned, you will leave this book with some SERIOUS cupcake cravings!
