Waiting on Wednesday: Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler

"Waiting on Wednesday" is weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases we're excited for.

Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler sounds like a YA version of the currently popular theme to combine chick-lit novels with a splendour of mouthwatering mentions of baked goods (and hopefully recipes), such as Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe by Jenny Colgan and Starting Over One Cake at a Time by Gesine Bullock-Prada, both of which I reviewed on here and absolutely adored (despite the fact that they made me want to eat just cake for the duration of the read). And the chapters in Bittersweet all have cupcake names! That's an instant winner in my eyes.

Details: Expected to be published January 3, 2012 by Simon Pulse.

Description: 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.
