Bittersweet is Simply Nerdy

Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler was released January 3rd, 2012 by Simon Pulse.


Once upon a time, Hudson knew exactly what her future looked like. Then a betrayal changed her life, and knocked her dreams to the ground. Now she’s a girl who doesn’t believe in second chances… a girl who stays under the radar by baking cupcakes at her mom’s diner and obsessing over what might have been. 

So when things start looking up and she has another shot at her dreams, Hudson is equal parts hopeful and terrified. Of course, this is also the moment a cute, sweet guy walks into her life…and starts serving up some seriously mixed signals. She’s got a lot on her plate, and for a girl who’s been burned before, risking it all is easier said than done. 

It’s time for Hudson to ask herself what she really wants, and how much she’s willing to sacrifice to get it. Because in a place where opportunities are fleeting, she knows this chance may very well be her last.


I really want to read this one. Sarah Ockler is kind of my go-to author for emotionally grueling reads, so I'm very excited for Bittersweet. Those of you who have read Twenty Boy Summer know exactly what I'm talking about, and those of you who don't should definitely go out and read Twenty Boy Summer. The summary of this book definitely leaves you guessing (you being me) and now I'm determined to know of the betrayal. I'm thinking something family related, but maybe not. 

And, of course, the cover is very pretty. It's simple--but there is something very sweet about a heart-shaped cookie in two pieces. There's something even sweeter about a heart cookie in two puzzle pieces. It kind of reminds me of Christmas and baking cookies with my mom, but I kind of like that.

I've been seeing this around and it does look interesting (really cute cover, too). I love baking, so that grabbed my attention and I figure this might be a good one for when I'm in the mood for something non-paranormal.
